When you’re caught in a lightning storm there’s nothing left to do but stay dry, keep away from tall metal objects, and take pictures. And even though you probably wouldn’t be carrying your DSLR with you in such bad weather you can always use your iPhone as a last resort.
Unfortunately the iPhone doesn’t typically fare too well outdoors, especially when you’re trying to capture images of lightning. But that’s the problem Ubertronix has tackled head on with their new Strike Finder app.
All you need to do to catch awe-inspiring lightning shots is point your iPhone towards the storm, and let the app do everything else. It’s not limited to lightning either, Strike Finder can also be used to take pictures of fireworks.
The app works with all camera capable devices with iOS 4.0 or greater, and is available on the iTunes App Store for $1.99.
