Spark™ for App Developers


If You're An App Developer... 
Imagine a personal lightning detector that tells you in real-time, minute by minute, mile by mile, how close lightning is to you, right now, via the location based service on your smartphone. Now imagine this capability, which we call Spark Lightning Alerts, available directly within your own app, at no cost to you, so your consumers can stay safe and engage more frequently with your app.
Our HTML 5 app widget version of Spark would provide an incremental revenue stream for you (from us) while it boosts the value and monetization of your app. Implementation is quick and easy, so you can start benefiting from Spark right away!
A word about the technology behind Spark: only our proprietary sensor network, the largest in the world, detects total lightning, making it the most powerful and safest way to gauge lightning relative to where you are. In fact, the U.S. National Weather Service just became a customer of our lightning data, but they do not warn customers about lightning threats.

5 Key Reasons You Want Spark in Your Application:

•  Helps your customers stay safe from lightning related injury
•  Value-add feature that provides a 'sticky' experience to engage your customers
•  Extremely easy implementation
•  Additional income generated for you
•  Differentiate your app from your competition


Get Spark in 3 Easy Steps:
1.  Register for Spark  on our developer site
2.  Obtain the URL to access the Spark mobile widget widget
3.  Integrate Spark into your mobile app and  delight your users and help them stay  safer while you enjoy a rev-share from  the ad-supported widget!
