The only 3D radar on iPhone® and iPad®, Weather Lab is for people that want to get the most out of weather radar. Dive deep and analyze real-time NEXRAD Level 2 data in rich, interactive perspectives. Requires iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 or newer. WHAT'S IN THE BOX There are two levels of Weather Lab. Keep it simple or go deeper with advanced radar inspection tools and access to more NEXRAD Level 2 products. Both give you the richness, power, and fluid control you demand to help you gain an enhanced mental model of your surroundings. Weather Lab: Offers reflectivity and the radar views of scan (lowest scan) and volume. Weather Lab PRO: Access all five NEXRAD Level 2 products and all radar views (including all angle scans). THE POWER OF 3D The Earth is not flat. Neither is the weather. The ability to view radar in 3D — the space in which it was captured — helps create a better mental model and improves situational awareness. Interacting with a more natural and fluid 3D environment assists you with the analysis of this complex visual information. To make this possible, we built it using Apple's high-performance Metal graphics layer. VIEWS Gain deeper insights by displaying and cutting through radar volumes in different ways: Scan - Display radar in the form in which it was captured: A full circle scan pointing into the sky at a constant elevation angle. [Weather Lab: Lowest scan. Weather Lab PRO: Any scan in the current VCP.] Volume - View the radar as four combined 3D isosurfaces, giving you the at-a-glance ability to understand the big picture. Horizontal Slice (Weather Lab PRO) - Since any given scan ascends through the altitudes at an angle, a mental leap is required to understand what is happening at a single altitude. Now you have the ability to see a specific altitude. Vertical Slice (Weather Lab PRO) - Cut through the radar volume vertically, creating a "wall" of data to allow instant interpretation of what is happening through all altitudes at once. PRODUCTS Level 2 NEXRAD Radar: - Reflectivity - Velocity (Weather Lab PRO) - Differential Reflectivity (Weather Lab PRO) - Correlation Coefficient (Weather Lab PRO) - Spectrum Width (Weather Lab PRO) COVERAGE SITES Contiguous United States: 143 Alaska: 7 Hawaii: 4 Republic of Korea: 2 Guam: 1 Japan: 1 Puerto Rico: 1 Total: 159 DATA ACCESS NEXRAD radars continuously scan a 3D picture of the skies using one of several predetermined volume coverage patterns (VCP). Weather Lab provides you access to all scans in the volume, giving you the full spatial picture from which to visualize the structure of a storm.

I liked what I saw in the short description in App Store and paid for this app. Come to find out to do things you see you have to pay even more money for it, we call that a hustle folks! Got me.

Advanced user

If you’d like to see and predict weather in the same way meteorologists do and better understand what is outside your window, this remarkable app does what most don’t and provides essential data in an elegant interface.

Great Radar App!

Just needs a few minor tweaks.

With the new update nothing works. Can not set location and I have paid for a year subscription. Worked before the new update now nothing
By HorseshoerDan

Very nice

This is a very good Radar App. Just a few suggestions that could make this app top notch. 1. Adding County boundaries. 2. Adding the option to see city names. 3. Adding the option to see Interstates and major Highways. Worth the initial price. Not sure about the yearly subscription add on yet.

Best 3D weather app

I highly recommend this weather app to you as I am a pilot as well as a weather enthusiast!!! Thank you for an awesome app!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

WARNING: Make sure you have compatible device or else app may not work.

I have an iPad Mini 2 and the app crashes on startup. There is nothing in the description to indicate the app isn’t compatible with older devices. You have to go to their website to see which devices have support for the app (some older devices evidently aren’t compatible). Developer should indicate which devices are compatible in the description.

Great visuals, useful tools, no ads

I’ve been a developer for 17 years and I know how hard it is to make something with this kind of quality. This app is worth every penny. I also appreciate the focus on keeping things serious. Great visuals, useful tools, no ads, etc. keep up the awesome work.
