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 PNG or GIF 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 in the information sidebar, select a warning to view the details, and even zoom to the selected warning on the map. Zoom in and out on the map using the mouse or pinch gestures on multi-touch trackpads. Click and drag to scroll around the map. Select one of the 289 different radars in the United States, Canada, Australia, Korea, Puerto Rico, Guam, or Okinawa. 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. Move the cursor over the color legend to see the data value associated with each color. You can also export the currently displayed map to several common image formats. 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. 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 optional dual-pane and quad-pane modes for viewing multiple 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.

Excellent Radar App

I've had this app for several years and it is my goto app for weather/storms/snow/etc. clear and excellent maps with zoom in/out and wide view of U.S. Shows weather flow and direction, good for tracking pop up storms. A bit expensive but it the app wetaher professionals use.

Great Software But Not Support

I had a terrible experience with their so-called tech support. So as long as you don't have a problem you should be all set.
By Joe Pillera

Well done as far as it goes...

PROs: Superb for looking at any one radar site and all the different kinds of data that site outputs in full resolutionl. If you're interest in radar goes no further than one radar site, this is the app for you. CONs: No composite view of all sites. Come on RadarScope, this is entry level stuff that is freely available elsewhere. If you're interested in exploring radar here and there, it will be tiresome. Next, loops are only 5 images, about 5 minutes worth. That's a big limitation for me and for anyone who is interested in the big picture. Finally, the base map is just just county lines. If its not your local area, you may find it hard to tell where things are at. Overall, what you get is done superb. It's what you don't get, that's disappointing for a paid app in this price range. Of course they offer more features, that will fix what they have crippled in this software, for a monthly or yearly fee. For me it feels like I'm being squeezed for more dough a little too much.

Radar ripoff

Tried this radar app only to discover that it does very liittle, costs too much and Apple won't give me a refund. Developer can't help you either (Apple wants to keep their 30% commission.) All in all a simplistic product that can be easily duplicated with free apps from other developers. Don't waste you money buying this one.

I love this app on my iPhone and iPad. But I am disappointed to find out that I have to purchase another pro subscription if I want to use it on the Mac version. I am regretting spending the $29.99. I would give this a 5 Star rating but can't.

As Expected

Have the same app on my Windows desktop, iPhone, and now MacOs. Although I do wish that RadarScope will have options to pick different color -tables.

I hate to give it 1 star ...

I LOVE Radarscope and have used it for years. I’ve purchased this Mac desktop app (as well as the iOS iphone and iPad apps) and now I went to open it and it had reverted to the old free version with limited frames and other features I’d already paid for. So I go to the App Store to try updating it and I see they want me to pay another $30?? I thought the first “one-time fee” was the last? I’ve tried to figure this out on my own to no avail. But I’m not spending $30 on something I’ve already paid for.

Amazing App

As a student pilot and waether junkie who loves tracking weather, this app makes it easy to do just that straight from my Mac ( yes, with full screen!) however i wish you can add a couple of features like; stichiting togethrt radars to create one radar, and some sort of wind forecast map. (How about an Apple Tv App?) thanks for your service

Go out ’n work/play.

Subscribed to this app some time ago. Very valuable. Use the app sometimes to show Digital Vertical Integrated Liquid layer. The interpretation of the colors reveal hail and intensity. The Super Res radar layer as a general purpose view is great for watching and anticipating when you need shelter. Great app. Well worth the cost. Get the Lightning data, its good.

Great, but not perfect

I have been a user of the iOS app for about a year now and love it. The desktop version for the Mac is just as good, although there is no way to see your current location on the desktop version. The addition of this feature would be excellent! Otherwise it offers the same great features that the mobile app does. Another thing that would make both better woild be the addition of a more detailed map.
