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 and Apple Watch.
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, 30 other radar sites in Canada, and 2 in the Republic of Korea. 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 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 auto-renewing subscription for $9.99/year. It provides access to real-time 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 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.
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 original 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.

Most accurate weather radar app available
This app provides the most accurate and up to the minute radar feeds of any app I've seen and used in the field. It gives the true radar view from NOAA, not a cartoonish simplification radar seen in other major name weather apps. I hesitated because of the price, but I use this app almost more than any other on my phone, and has more than paid for itself averting disaster with the updated radar feeds. Customer support is better than any other app, or company, I've dealt with. Had a small issue (turned out to be user error) so sent an email, expecting to hear back 24-48 hours, they responded in less than 10 minutes with a full explanation on how to fix the problem. Was also not a canned response email, was unique and tailored to my situation. Their support response prompted me to write the review, first review of 100's of apps I've used since the App Store launched. Cannot go wrong with RadarScope.
Also, the Pro features are definitely worth it with lightning data and split screen alone.
Continues To Remain #1 Doppler Radar App
RadarScope continues to be the number one mobile app for Doppler Radar. Other radar sources may provide fancy layering but if you are looking for access to the highest resolution radar data available publicly (Level 2), you need this app. I've been a user for 4+ years and WDT continues to update and add innovative features never before seen on a mobile/tablet device. Upload GIF or Video animations to Twitter or save locally for import into any other application that accepts GIF or Video files. The severe thunderstorm, tornado, and flash flood polygons are updated faster than any other app I have used. You can click on a warning and get the detailed statement from the NWS. If you are a professional, enthusiast, public official, decision maker, event planner, or even the public, RadarScope has a purpose for your device. It's the only application I visit daily (other than my alarm clock).
It doesn't get any better for IOS
Plain and simple, $10 to purchase and $10/year for pro features such as dual plane to review both radar and velocity at the same time which zooms in and out at the same time on both planes. It doesn't get any better for IOS weather apps but this is for the weather enthusiast who wants to know more about a storm and what it is doing accurately. The pro subscription gives you airport TDW radar which is extremely accurate and high resolution. If you live anywhere near a airport take advantage of the higher resolution radar available for pilots and related.
