RadarScope App Description

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 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, select a warning to 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 289 different radars in the United States, Canada, Australia, Korea, Puerto Rico, Guam, or Okinawa. 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 radar data from our servers, NOAA's public access web site, or your Allison House subscriber account. Spotter Network members can report their location and view the locations of other spotters. 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 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. 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.

  • The Best

    5
    By Mike Neuby
    RadarScope is hands down the best weather radar out there. It gives you a level of detail not matched by other competitors. One of my wish lists for radar scope is for it to be a native app on the Tesla’s main display. As of today, Tesla has opened up its API to third parley developers to creat third party apps for its main screen. Having RadarScope on that beautiful center display would be simply unbeatable.
  • A live look at weather data

    By cstephensondotco
    I'm a novice user, learning about the different readings coming from the radar, but even with currently only understanding percipitation and velocity, this app is a million times better than any other radar app because the data is live. During a storm, it doesn't help much to see radar data that is ten to thirty minutes old unless you're looking at tracking info. I'm a map geek, and I love data, both likely important to why I love this app. Also, this app only provides data. I believe it's some of the same data that helps meteorologists forecast weather, but the app doesn't forecast. So if you only want to know what the weather will be like later today or tomorrow, I doubt this app is for you.
  • Minimal features for $10

    Not worth it if just buying the app. They’re more annual and monthly subscriptions in the app that has access to more features. If I could get my money back for returning an app I would.
  • Don’t listen to the 1 and 2 star reviews. Please read

    By ChrisW2364
    First off, the people who are giving 1 stars probably don’t have a clue what they are looking at, the issues most people have on here are not radarscope’s fault, if your not even remotely into weather it can prove more difficult to interpret. That’s not radarscopes fault it’s the fault of the user. Radars are tools used by professionals, amateurs and ordinary people, the radar doesn’t lie on what it sees. If a radar isn’t updating it’s possible the NWS location (which is where the ap gets the data from) has issues, that’s not the apps fault. Sure the ap isn’t perfect but it’s hands down, it’s the best radar available on a phone or iPad. No other can even scratch the surface of what radarscope provides. For weather nerds is worth every dime. Easily able to add other data to get even more out of the radar.
  • Update please!!!

    Excellent app but it has to improve on the map, have options on the color since it is always black.🤦‍♂️ You could have a white one as an option and use a more detailed map like the google ones. I hope you can help with my suggestion.Thanks!!!
  • Real Time Precise Information

    5
    By Cirquerider
    I purchased this app in 2009 had it has been my go-to for critical weather information on the motorcycle and boat. When you’re exposed to the elements you need to know precise information of whether to go through the storm or seek shelter. radarscope has never failed to give me the information I need to evaluate my risks, and the speed direction, intensity and hail of a system. No other program I am aware of gives this real-time detail. This is not the national weather or what will happen tomorrow, but if you need precise location, speed, intensity and direction right now, RadarScope delivers.
  • Love it!!

    This app is by far THE BEST weather app if you know how to read radar imagery! I seriously open this app (watch, iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro) whenever I have any questions about the weather. It’s saved me more times than I can count, and was an EXCELLENT resource during Hurricane Irma! Love you guys!
  • THIS APP IS FOR MORE EXPERIENCED PEOPLE

    By shadowbandit91(youtube)
    Like I stated in the caption this app is meant for more like professional and experienced storm spotters and storm chasers that know how to read it now with that being said I don’t know how to use this particular radar 100% I bought it because I liked a lot of the features I like how it has a measuring tool for how far away you are from the storm it’s got a future track to show where it’s going it breaks down the storm it’s very quick on giving you the latest radar image I do believe it’s every two or three minutes There’s a lot of different radar layers You can check and look at like the wind speed velocity and you can check the moisture And it shows how much moisture is putting out you can look at different tils Or however you spell that and If you have poor data you can Change it to make it a little more pixelated but does it use much data to give you the current readings I like the fact that you can have a Cone that shows what direction you’re facing and what direction you’re heading I do enjoy it I’ve always wanted to be into weather and just watch the storms But I have a lot to learn So if you’re willing to give it a try and you’re not scared to spend $9 To try it out and once you pay for it it’s paid for so you want to buy that again but there are pro versions one and two that are pretty much like subscriptions annual monthly gives a lot more to work with and do You can see and do a lot more See you were the storm chasers and spotters are A bunch of extra stuff that’s definitely helpful I am just using the app itself after paying nine dollars so like I said I like it I just got a used to it and understand it THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE I would REALLY LIKE to see a option to get notifications Via Phone when there’s severe weather or a slight or moderate or Enhanced RISK for the next day or today or thunderstorm warnings lightning strike tornado warnings They have that in the app and it shows you every warning they have out in the United States pretty much but I can’t seem to get notifications for my favorite locations that I have saved or if I have location on if I’m near that area it should automatically say hey there’s bad weather in your area Without me having to open the app and like check it and I understand this might be because of the professional status of this so you’re constantly looking at radar but it would be something nice to see if this is an option I have not found it But you do get notifications on the app itself of every single weather related warning and watch and everything in between it’s almost like a silent notification you just don’t get on your notifications screen on your phone And I guess the only thing I can think of And again this is probably just me not knowing what the hell I’m doing but I having a little bit I was smoother radar imagery it’s a little pixelated which kind of bothers me because I’m so used to the other apps that have HD or smooth radars Options or layers and again this is a professional raw radar I would just like to see A option to have a smoother for the non-pro user just buying the app itself I will update this if I find and understand some things a little better but this is definitely an app that I would use if I was getting into Meteorology and I was going to school for it I would totally use this and I’m sure once I get used to using it I’ll be able to understand it a little bit more but like I said it’s worth it definitely Very Good tool to have
  • Amazing app

    By no tornadoes please
    I really, really like this app. Great for severe weather. However, this is not for someone who is looking for an average radar app. If you don’t know what base velocity is, you probably shouldn’t get this app. Definite 5 stars.
  • Fantastic app! But,

    This app is absolutely amazing for tracking storms! I love the option where users can submit weather reports. However, the option to report rain is absolutely ridiculous. We do not need to know if a severe storm has rain. It clutters the radar
