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.

I like the App very much and use it whenever I need an alarm. It would be great if you added the alarm time under the alarm bell symbol.

Frustrating I have used Lightning Bug for over a year. Haven't had a problem until a few months ago. The widgets are not working. No sound and no pictures. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and it was working fine again. Two nights ago it started messing up again. No sound and no pictures. FIX IT PLEASE!!! *uninstalling app* messed up again after 2 nights. Not getting this again. I would give it a negative 5 stars if I could.

Great App, Better than Ambio... I've used this app for a couple of years as my sleep clock. Very easy to make a custom, soothing blend of sounds and a nice bedside clock. I use an app called "Screen Filter" to get the brightness very low on the display of my MotoX when I use this app at night. I tried Ambio, but it's more complicated and doesn't work as well as LighningBug.

. Since the update I can't lock my phone whilst lightening bug is playing, it audio jumps and then cuts out after a minute or so, with or without beta

This is crap to faithful users! I bought every plug in! Now you make a new app and as a "gift" give us one credit so we get one sound per group instead of giving the all to us since we've already paid for them. So unfair to cuatomers. Creators are just in it for money. So what happens when/if I buy all these and you do it again?! Going to find another app you are doing wrong by your users! And to think of all the people I told how great this app was. I was duped!
