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 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.

Always loved this app.
It works really well, it's accurate and, easy to use. I also really like the raw data instead of the composites they use on tv. Having said that, it would be cool if you could some how interpolate multiple sources at the same time. I don't even know if that's possible to do. Smartphones are fairly stout nowadays.
Adding to the list of likes: all the different tilts and the available number of frames plus, the tools for distance and location are really nice and can help develop a relationship with the sky you're under. Well worth unlocking.
UPDATE: STILL THE BEST Wx app there is; and that's saying quite a bit for the ever-upgraded and new Wx apps out there. I would normally go back and forth between this and the "STORM" app (because I live in tornado alley), but I have even given the lowest rating to "STORM" because they just added ads to the PAID version, and they take between 8-11 minutes to update the radar!
THE BEST! Most accurate and reliable WX app out there! Updates every two minutes! DUAL-RADAR!
Not exactly as advertised
This is a good radar app and certainly worth the purchase price but some of the features advertised are only available with a subscription. I was expecting all of the features to be functional since there is no mention of the subscription requirement. It should be clearly stated that some features require a subscription. I consider this deceptive marketing. You got my money but not my respect ... and no, I will not spend for your subscription.
