Description

RadarScope is a specialized display utility for weather enthusiasts and meteorologists that allows you view NEXRAD Level 3 and super-resolution radar data along with tornado, severe thunderstorm, flash flood, special marine and snow squall warnings, and predicted storm tracks issued by the U.S. National Weather Service. It can display the latest reflectivity, velocity, dual-polarization, and other products from any NEXRAD or TDWR radar site in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, Korea, and Okinawa, as well as data from Environment Canada, Australian Bureau of Meteorology and German Weather Service radars. These aren't smoothed images, this is native radar data rendered in its original radial format for a high level of detail. Whether you are scanning reflectivity for a mesocyclone's tell-tale hook echo, trying to pinpoint the landfall of a hurricane's eye wall, or looking for small features like velocity couplets in the storm relative radial velocity product, RadarScope gives you the power to view true radial weather radar data. RadarScope displays tornado, severe thunderstorm, flash flood, special marine, and snow squall warnings issued by the U.S. National Weather Service. You can browse the list of active warnings, select a warning to view the details, and even zoom to the selected warning on the map. Pinch or stretch to zoom in and out. Drag your finger around the map to scroll. Tap the radar sweep button in the toolbar to switch radars. Select one of the 289 different radars in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, Korea, Puerto Rico, Guam, or Okinawa. Plot your current location by tapping the location button and optionally report it to the Spotter Network. Tap the play button to download and animate over recent images. Display the names of over 25,000 cities and towns on the map as you zoom and scroll. Tap and hold the color legend to see the data values. Meanwhile, RadarScope will retrieve and display updated data automatically and intelligently (approximately every 2 to 10 minutes, depending on the radar scan strategy). You can display radar data from our servers, NOAA's public access web site, or your Allison House subscriber account. Spotter Network members can report their location and view the locations of other spotters. RadarScope Pro is an optional auto-renewing subscription with two different tiers to choose from. RadarScope Pro Tier One is an annual subscription that provides access to real-time lightning data in the U.S. and Canada that animates along with the radar loop and up to 30 frames of radar data, including extended loops of super-resolution data. Tier One subscribers can also access a data interrogation tool to quickly determine data values for specific radar pixels and an optional dual-pane mode for viewing two radar products side-by-side. RadarScope Pro Tier Two is an annual or monthly subscription that combines all the features in Tier One with more advanced features, including SPC outlooks, mesoscale discussions, local storm reports, hail size and probability contours, and azimuthal shear contours in the U.S., a 30-day archive of all radar products, and the ability to use subscription features across multiple platforms. If you choose to buy the RadarScope Pro subscription, it will charged to your iTunes account. The subscription will be auto-renewed within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period at the same price you originally paid. Subscriptions may be managed and auto-renewal disabled via your iTunes Account Settings after the purchase. Once purchased, the subscription cannot be cancelled during the active subscription period.

No need for future radar.

2
Congrats! You ruined my favorite weather radar app. I have no need for the future radar and I can’t find a setting to turn it off. I have used this app for several years and loved it. Now I have to put up with seven hours of future radar. Show me where the rain was and where it is and I can tell where it will be in an hour. I work outside and rely on this app. Please allow users to turn the future radar feature off. PLEASE!

Terrible app, at least at lowest paid tier

Maybe the subscription plans are better. IP12PM maps are pixilated messes.

What a mistake purchasing this app was

1
The radar is good, but certainly not worth the cost. I looked at the app when I first purchased it and realized it was not for me. It is not easy get out of a $10 mistake. I had hoped that a $10 radar app would also include a view of cloud cover. On top of this, they want another $10 to see lightning strikes. GO TO NOAA’s SITE FOR VIRTUALLY THE SAME INFO.

BEST RADAR APP

5
I currently use the RadarScope Pro Tier 1 subscription and it’s amazing. I recommend Tier 1 as it’s the best value, but if you can afford Tier it’s way better. I hope to upgrade in the near future!! So far the best app for everything severe weather tracking.

Best weather app thank you for the hard work in to making this app

Great but needs to allow family sharing subscription

I love the app and have been paying for pro for years. It’s totally worth it if you’re looking for a good radar app. I just wish my wife could access the subscription too. It would be great if the app supported family sharing of the subscription now that iOS can do it.

Best Radar App

5
I’m an Oklahoman who is very intrigued by weather. This app will give you so much more information than other radars. It’s definitely more expensive but it’s worth the price. Its precision and reliability has saved my butt a good few times. One I can remember is on a road trip, we were about to drive into a tornado warning that we had no clue about, but I was aware using the app. Everyone else’s radars were less accurate when we compared them too. Great app. No complaints on my end.

Absolutely the Best

Love this app. I am a weather enthusiast and this app hasn’t let me down once. All the details you will ever need, clearly displayed, and working flawlessly.

Useless? Same is free from NWS

5
The best $10 scam on the Internet. Can get same from NWS for free. The radar does not show location good enough to locate yourself wrt incoming storm. This app is just a library of bookmarks for radar provided for free by NWS.
