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, as well as reflectivity and velocity data from Environment Canada 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 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. It 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.
RadarScope Pro subscribers can also access RadarScope for Apple Watch and a data interrogation tool to quickly determine data values for specific radar pixels.

Best iPhone app I own
I'm not a Wx professional and I live in a boring place for Wx (Arizona), but I love this app!! The design is top-notch, the colors and layout are phenomenal, and the detail is remarkable. I open this app so much just to check around. I really enjoy all the professional radar selections. I purchased the pro version and feel that it's worth it. The app itself is worth the money - it's not buggy, runs smooth, looks amazing, and provides so much info. The lightening strikes and extended frames are worth it in my opinion. Update: 2.4 is a nice upgrade. Data inspector helps with matching values and data. Overall this is still my favorite iPhone app. Thanks for fixing the font issue on iPhone 6s Plus.
New update is great!
The new update is great! Just give the app a few moments to reset, otherwise you'll contact support and sound like an idtiot by telling them the app is busted when it isn't lol! Note: When I emailed support they replied to me within 30 seconds... 30 SECONDS! Can you believe that!?!?!?! Awsome suppot to go along with an awesome app!
AppleWatch app won't communicate
After contacting the developer, they quickly offered a solution. Happily, it worked. The AppleWatch app is as good as I'd hoped.
This version lost connectivity between the watch and phone.
The phone app is great, but...
