I evaluated Aninoquisi's Lightning/2000 application and Astrogenic's NexStorm application.
My previously stated conclusion was that they are both most excellent, for different reasons.
The data from Lightning/2000 is, to my mind, more accurate than that from NexStorm, but Lightning/2000's interface is not as polished as NexStorm's, and it lacks the super cool web functionality of the latter.
OTOH, NexStorm, while uber slick and all, seems to be lacking when it comes to overall quality of data, at least when compared with Lightning/2000.
Since I have no particular interest in sharing my lightning fun with others, and because I am interested in the intricate nuts 'n' bolts of lightning, I prefer Lightning/2000 to NexStorm. If my aim was to provide live lightning data online, I'd be usin' NexStorm.
Both programs are really great at the things they do best. Some guys have different priorities, mine bein' a data obsession, which is why I chose Lightning/2000, but folk who are big on things Internet know that NexStorm is a better choice for them.
And I have ZERO affiliation with either Aninoquisi or Astrogenic, although they both got cash outta me, directly or indirectly!
See, that's what I said and am sayin': One is good for this, the other is good for that. Neither suck. No more, no less. Yet some of you fellas have been howling like boiled monkeys all coz I dared to go with "the enemy" application, instead of promoting NexStorm, and you brand me a troll.
So what does that make you? I know what I am: I'm honest.
