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.

How did you all manage to mess this app up? I have had it for years. It’s on my Home Screen and one of my most used apps. You changed the classic reflectivity tilt and it appears inaccurate as compared to other radar apps. Please go back to what you had!!! I live by this app.

Radar Scope Widget?!?

5
Hey! Love the app. I was wondering, with the new iPhone update, could we possibly see a Radar Scope widget? And on this widget you can have it show one specific station? So you can have a quick glance at your local radar or radar of choice from your Home Screen??😮 Carrington

Tornado tracks at pro tier 2

5
There have been 6 tornadoes on the ground within 50 miles of me this month. Including the two tornadoes 2 nights ago at 3 and 8 miles. One of those a month ago was reported on the tv live, the rest were in the 6 hour gap between the evening and morning news. RadarScope shows the storms as they develop rotation and “meso strength” above the clouds. My house does not have a tornado shelter, but with this information it is possible to dodge the tornadoes. Get it for free, or buy it. Even the pro plan is cheaper than driving to a hotel out of town due to tornadoes in town. This app provides better and more frequent tornado tracking than the local tv station as they cover a tornado “live”. Often times the a tornado will cover 30 miles as the tv station covers a hard luck story. This app lets me and my family stay safe.

Subscription service?

3
Look, pay .99 for an app, sure go ahead and slap a sub service on there. But pay $10 for an app, and still hold back features? That’s an a$$hole design.

Once forgotten, Now a lifetime subscription.

Why you might ask? Cuz I can change the colors of my widgets😏. Whoever lead the charge on that decision, kudos to you. Once word get out you’ll have every ex-Android user spending $25. Sometimes it’s just that simple. Oh and the weather works too 🥳

Great app!

I love this app and couldn’t say anything better about it except that it doesn’t have push notifications for warnings! Why? I would instant give it 5 stars if I got push notification of warnings I could select from. I.e. tornado, marine, flash flood, etc.. for a given selection of radar sites.

Best Radar App ever

5
Been an app owner for years and years. Hated to spend the money compared to others but once I did - I’ve never regretted it. One of the most accurate, responsive apps but it does miss the background street / map details that others have. However, I’m not really using it for pinpoint as much as I am a 10 mile radius and then zoom out to see what’s approaching.
