Reviews From google play store

Great app. I use it all the time.

Love this app. Has great data, and it has inspired me to purchase a Blitzortung Lightning Detector to contribute to the data. I wish everyone would get over the openmap situation, if you don't like it go and find an app that provides the 'boring outdated google maps' that costs the developer to provide to you, at cost. I am very happy with this app and will continue to contribute to this amazing science hobby. Thanks guys great work on keeping up with all the bad reviews, and thank you for this app.

Best app ever until the recent map update. What have you done. The satellite map was clear and excellent. This new map is absolutely awful low resolution and places written in local dialect? It looks like a child drew it. Why ? Please bring back the old map Google satellite may be outdated but its clear and precise. At least give us the choice. Trust me you've shot yourself in the foot with this one

Bring back satellite maps! I love this app. Well I did until this update! The map no longer has the option for satellite view. The new style looks awful.Every major road is a wishy washy red and look like veins. I never thought I minded the look of veins until now! Or it looks like the stuff in War of the World's that creeps over the ground although that makes it sound cooler than it is. As other users have said, it's now painfully slow to load and the colours on the map are the same as strikes!

I have used Blitz happily for years. It appears that the developers have taken it off Play store and turned off data delivery, so my beloved app no longer works. Supposedly it has been migrated to some place called F-droid. But I cant find any way to download a replacement app or even figure out how to use F-droid. So it appears that this wonderful app is effectively no longer available, even for us loyal users. Such a shame.

Previously rated this app a 1 star due to the map changing from an informative Google earth style to a childish difficult to read OS style. Today I have come to use it and its not displaying any lightning information and an exclamation mark triangle in the top right. This app has been great for ages and now it seems wrecked. I've downloaded blitzortung from the play store from a different author and guess what. It's working and it's a Google earth style map...... Bye bye guys..... Uninstalled!!!

The lightning tracking is accurate and sophisticated, but the map is very slow to load (even on fast wifi) and just looks like a blurred pixellated mess. Previous map for older version was significantly better and loaded/zoomed instantly. UPDATE following reply - as constructive feedback, why not have a 'download offline map' option as part of the app? Much better than the first impression of a really fuzzy map.

Hey there. On your site it says that you're retired from Google Play, but as I can see you still answer the questions, and there's no dates as to when. BTW if you're still can ignore the feedback here but don't leave us without updates please :) I would have missed a couple of thunderstorms passing by if I didn't have your app with alerts set up...

Update from my previous review: Maps are crude and low res and lack contrast...horrible to look at. Rude reply by developer which is a shame. The resolution is so poor you cannot read some of the town names (what few there are) even with the resolution at highest. (as per their suggestion) Only just seen previous reviews by others. Sad. Going to delete app. Pity. RIP

edit from 4 to 1 star: this app works when it wants. I can't get any infomation and wants location acces. So... i can't see the database without providing location. Data mining or stupid design? I don't care aboute notofication and i don't think this stupid operating system needs location acces to have a map with 150 logos on it.

requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
