Permissions - Lightning Bug currently requires the following permissions on your Android device.
Your Location – course (network-based) location
Only used if you enable Lightning Bug’s local weather feature which is disabled by default. If you enable the local weather feature, only your latitude and longitude are sent to a trusted weather reporting service.
Network Communications – full Internet access
Required for downloading extra content including sound, image, and program files from 1908 Media servers. If you have Lightning Bug’s local weather feature enabled, Internet access is also required for contacting a 3rd party weather reporting service.
Storage – modify/delete SD card contents
Required for storing and managing extra content including sound, image, and program files.
Phone Calls – read phone state and identity
Required so that scene and alarm audio can be ducked (partially to fully muted) during phone calls.
System Tools – disable keylock, prevent phone from sleeping
Keylock control is required by Lightning Bug’s alarm system. Screen and sleep controls are required to keep the Lightning Bug digital clock and\or scene player visible (this is the default behavior, however you can override using Lightning Bug’s Screen Timeout feature)
System Tools – send sticky broadcast
Lightning Bug uses ‘Sticky Intents’ as a part of its alarm system. The app broadcasts a single sticky intent whenever the alarm clock goes off. This is a standard permission among most android applications providing alarm clock features.
System Tools – automatically start at boot
Lightning Bug very briefly runs at boot to synchronize it’s alarm system with the system clock. This process is required to ensure alarms go off at the correct time and is designed to have minimal impact on your device’s startup time. This is a standard permission among most android applications providing alarm clock features.

Best ambience app on the market for the price, which is free. Puts me to sleep most every night. Droid incredible

Top quality sounds, although lacks the simple ability to save custom presets. Works flawlessly w/ and w/o premium plugins. (Droid Incredible)

This app is pretty slick and straight forward. I like it. But it's too simple to love. *Would be better w/ an auto-start option.

A very good program to make you relax. Haven't had any problems with this program. I recommend installing / buying addons for extra sounds though.

I've tried at least ten other rain/thunder apps to put me to sleep but none have come close to this one! Awesome app, thanks a mill!!!

What's not to love? Thank you fit such an amazing free app. I now sleep better nights. :)
Absolutely incredible free app! Dont pay for a white noise app like i did, this one is better for free! Now Im angry - how can I sleep?

Fantastic! This is by far, the best relaxing technique I've used. There are so many options in the settings to make it your own.
I have mine set with a 15 minute timer, and I usually fall asleep within minutes or seconds of listening! Love the thunder & rain! GREAT APP
