The original Android lightning distance calculator.  Press the top button when you see the flash, press the bottom one when you hear the thunder.  The distance is shown in Miles and KM, up to 20Mi.  

Fun and educational, it's also useful in outdoor sports where lightning may be a hazard (for lifeguards, referees, etc.).

Suggestions welcome.

No annoying ads - ever!

Recent changes:
New feature - Lightning now saves the last 10 measurements.  Press Menu to access the History list (suggested by James B.).

Great looking app.

I always wanted to make this app, but I was also going to include a call to the compass and allow you to plot where the lightning theoretically was.

Validated on HTC Evo. No ads! Going to use this app to teach my kids about the relationship between thunder and lightning. RMB

Couldn't update this app on first try. There was some issue at first. Tried again later and it worked. Now all is well.
