    Wow... this seems like it will be most helpful down in FL. To bad its a nice day out today (go figure).

    I agree that it would be nice if it pulled the local weather based on ur local, but still, great job!

    I have not used the app but it looks like you set the temp to your local temp. you see lightning you hit start/stop. you hear thunder you hit start/stop again.

    the rest is formulas in the software.

    So does the Start Stop respond quick enough to be useful?

    I guess I will try it out for myself.

    well, I should call the start/stop button, the light/sound button.
    In the further version, I'm going to add an help to understand how this software works.

    Thank for your comments. The local temperature update is a great idea !

    I'm also working on other science apps .....

    I can't seem to figure out how to switch it to non-metric. Is the Preferences item in the menu supposed to be grayed out?

    You have to scroll down the app to see all the options. Check screen capture in this first message.

    Interesting Application. I investigate severe storms here for my work. It would seem like there are quite a few assumptions being made for you to be able to determine the electric and magnetic fields associated with the flash(es). The fields also fall off quickly as ones distance from the flash increases. Your fields shown do not look reasonable (at distance). Can you PM me and tell me how you are attempting to calculate these values?

    Finally, this version doesn't seem to start up on my Pre! I can download it (via FileCoaster) and install it, but it hangs starting.

    I downloaded the latest 2.0 version a few minutes ago and all I get when starting the program is a white screen. My previous version had been working fine. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling (via Filecoaster) but still get only a white screen.

    I also cannot launch the app. I downloaded 2.0 and it just sits there after install.

    I'm looking why there's a problem. I didn't made this program with the sdk 1.1, it's probably why it doesn't work good

    Yes, I use a value of current strength (30000A) to calculate the magnetic field. But I will improve that by giving uncertainties of the magnetic field and current strength values.

    For Electric field, I use the height of the lightning given by the theorem of Thales and the average load of a flash (750 C).
