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 and Special Marine 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 and Australian Bureau of Meteorology 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, and special marine 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, 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, 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.

Should have past radar loop

3
It’s good but it should offer a feature that lets you see past radar loops. And 8-12 hour past radar loops would be nice to see, especially if you are interested to see what happened overnight.
By no past radar loops

Add placefiles?

5
This is a great tool that I use all of the time. I very highly recommend this app. The only improvement that I want is the ability to import placefiles. (Like GRlevelX) If that is implemented, the app will be the ultimate storm chasing tool!

Absolutely the best in the App Store

5
It's really quite simple, this App is hands down the most detailed available anywhere on the App Store. We as a family spend maybe $50/yr. between emergency radios, batteries, Application subscriptions. In Arkansas tornadoes happen frequently & never make it on the national news. It's just normal life our here... It helps you keep you assets safe under cover or put up when needed & shelter your family as well. You have to know a little meteorology to use the App but educating yourself never hurt anyone , I don't think....

Great!

Before I bought the app I watched how to use it I understand it Man Texas storms are cray cray I got the pro tier 1 Perfect for storms I get super cells here. I love it! A few suggestions: why every time I see peters bury there’s a storm there when I look out side at peters burg it’s sunny you should fix it please. alright best weather app I seen thanks for making this pls Do this suggestion.

THE radar app

Nothing can compare to Radarscope!

Great, but...

The app is fantastic, fast refresh rates, great Storm details, very accurate. The things I wish for: 1) regional and national composite radar-the ability to watch big systems rolling towards us. 2) more detailed maps to allow precise positioning. The “I’m Here” marker is convenient but I also want to know where the storm is in relation to my kids, parents, family, friends, job sites 3) I live in North Carolina & am always keeping track of Hurricanes every year. The ability to select storms and receive regular updates and zoom to the hurricane would be fantastic.

App not working good here in kuwait

It’s a Level 2 data viewer.

I’ll start this off by saying that if you’re looking for a way to view the highest res data available from the NWS’s network of radars on your phone, this does that, and it does it well enough, assuming only 5 frames of animation is fine with you. However, I really am a bit back and forth about the pricing of the base app. It feels a bit steep considering there is functionality that’s not included out of the box. Yes, I understand that the cost of development and running their services is not free. However, considering what you get in the base app is practically just NEXRAD Level 2 data, which is provided to the public for free (do the research - the NWS has made it available in different ways and there’s different methods of viewing it, at least on a PC), it just doesn’t feel right, even with the data being redistributed by RadarScope. I will still use RadarScope because I already spent the $10, and what is included in the base app is quality & convenient. But I have been exploring the data that is publicly available from the NWS, and I would implore others to do so as well.

Disappointed

I have had a radar app that was very simple and accurate. Unfortunately that app had trouble with future weather due to failure of billing. This app simply does not deliver radar information that is helpful. Small areas only without input of incoming weather. No help.

NWS instructor said this was the best

5
I took a National Weather Service weather spotter class (highly recommended for weather nerds). During class, I asked the instructor about apps; he didn’t want to be quoted favoring one over another. After class, he came up to me and said “Radar Scope”. I’ve played with all the advanced apps and this is one of the best, if not the best. The guy was a meteorologist. “Do I go to the basement or not?” - a key question in tornado country when a weather alarm goes off. This and a few other apps give projected storm tracks. If I tap on the icon for the cell, I can pull up detail on storm characteristics. I can see when I need to go to the basement and when I can (warily) stay upstairs
