RadarScope is a specialized display utility for weather enthusiasts and meteorologists that allows you view NEXRAD Level 3 and Level 2 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, Finnish Meteorological Institute, 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 animated lightning data 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 50-frame loops, SPC outlooks, special weather statements, 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, a 2-year archive of NEXRAD Level 3 radar products, a full historical archive of NEXRAD Level 2 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.

Storm tracking accuracy

When the radar loops and storms are tracking…the direction of storms is not accurate. Please fix it. I must check other radar sites, to verify what direction the storm is going.

Best weather app

As a weather geek myself, I find this app very helpful when out chasing. Great, fast and reliable. I use this everyday to report. Love it. We’ve intercepted a few Tornadic supercells alone with some big hail cores. Great and reliable when chasing.

Number 1st Recommended Radar app

Best radar app out there. Worth the money. Even without the pro versions like tier 2 or tier 1 it is still good. It is basic, Easy, Fun, Accurate. If you are new to radar or weather and love weather, I recommend this. And if you are trying to get the groceries in before the rain starts ITS ALL EASY TO LEARN!

No better than FREE apps!!!

Wow, I read many reviews and believed the positive ones. This proved to be a huge mistake as this is wholly useless. It doesn’t show any future and what it does show isn’t realistic! It can show a storm and it clear at my location. Stay away unless you possess the magic needed to realize any value. Angry sucker here!!!

Radar is good but

The storm track is a joke.

Best radar I have found.

Radar low quality

The Weather Channels radar is way better than this app. $30 vs $100 for a year subscription. If the radar was higher quality it would be a good weather app, until then I wont be using this app.

Don’t waste your money

The app is only worth it if you buy the pro version. Wasting $10 on the app will give you access to basic features but if you want anything useful, you’ll have to pay extra. It feels terrible because the other apps cost money through a subscription to view the radar and go forward in time but this app has you pay for the app AND even more for the features. Don’t waste your $

Just purchased

Initial review I’m not a weather geek ,was just looking for a good quality radar with a decent image a couple hour history and some future forecast,I spent $10 on this got nothing for my money except more solicitations for another $10 for a pro and a $99/year for pro 2 upgrades (Wish I could return it for a refund). The storm radar from the weather channel(free version) offers the novice more usable features than this. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED at this point I consider this a waste of money,bordering on a bait and switch, but to be fair (and because I’ve already paid for it) I will try to get it to work for me and may amend my review later

THIS IS A MUST BUY APP!!! (iOS, Android, MacOS)

I started using this app on my iPhone many years ago... and was hooked. Since then I've added it to my Android head unit in my truck. This last time I downloaded it to my Macbook Pro. Living in "Tornado Alley" gives me more comfort when having this app. I don't even question it when I need it on a new device... IT IS A MUST BUY APP!
