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 Warnings, and predicted storm tracks issued by the US 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 and Puerto Rico. 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 NEXRAD weather radar on your iOS device.
When there are any Tornado Warnings (outlined in RED), Severe Thunderstorm Warnings (YELLOW polygons), or Flash Flood Warnings (GREEN polygons) in effect throughout the US, tap the warning button in the top right corner to browse the list of current warnings, 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 156 different NEXRAD radar sites and 45 Terminal Doppler radars in the US and 30 other radar sites in Canada, with the rotating radar beam representing each radar's approximate coverage area. 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 the last six 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 3 to 10 minutes, depending on the radar scan strategy).
You can display data from NOAA's public access web site, our optional WDT feed (the default), or your AllisonHouse subscriber account. Spotter Network members can report their location and view the locations of other spotters.
The RadarScope Pro subscription is an optional add-on data set and provides access to real lightning data that animates along with the radar loop and up to 20 frames of radar data, including *extended loops* of "Super Res" Level 2 data. Super Res Level 2 data is still available to all RadarScope users without purchasing a subscription.
Please visit our web site for more information.
What's New in Version 2.2.4
Version 2.2.4 includes:
• Support for iOS8
• Support for new iPhone 6 and 6+ displays
The new subscription option has created some confusion. Please be aware that super res data and all features available in previous versions of the app are still available to all users and don't require a subscription. We added several new products as a free update. The new subscription option adds lightning data and extended loops of super res products, but it is not required to continuing using all of the features you've used in the past.

#1 weather/radar app hands down
I've had this app for a couple of years on my phone and the development team puts in the work with updates (no additional cost) resulting in a product that is without question superior to anything out there to date. The $$ may turn off some people but this is so far advanced, simple to use, and gives you a clear picture what is coming your way minus all the BS like ads, temps, and dew points etc. Their cust service is excellent. Radarscope is also fantastic on the iPad. I Highly recommend this product
This is a great, very accurate radar app. I would give it 5 stars but the only reason is that I wish the app had a couple more features, such as possibly a help menu for the different radars so the "average everyday" user can get a better understanding on how to read the different radars. Also I wish, an would be nice to see in an update is to have a winter/snow mode for the radar so you have a better idea as to what is about to hit you! Other than those two things the app itself looks great on the iPhone 6!
YEP! THE MOST ACCURATE!!
I've used this app for years. I haven't found a more reliable app than this, when it comes to actual precipitation, when and where! People get mad when I say that rain will be here in 10 minutes... It's NOT me! I just looked at the Doppler. The only downfall is when the "station" is down. That's NOT the developers fault, I know, but still annoying! It happens so rare tho!
