App Store Description

Summon a thunderstorm on your smart device. Relax and fall fast asleep to the sounds of rain and thunder. The screen or camera flashes when lightning strikes.*

*Defaults to screen for lightning light effects if camera flash is not available.

• Turn Screen Black button adds a black overlay and sets your mobile device to the minimum brightness. Screen Brightness Delay setting compensates for the minimum to maximum brightness delay on some mobile devices. Set to .25-1 second if the screen lightning light effects do not reach peak brightness when lightning is the closest, i.e., thunder is the loudest.
• Keep Awake setting prevents your mobile device from going to sleep so you can continue seeing the lightning light effects
• Hide Status Bar setting maximizes the mobile screen real estate for the screen lightning light effects
