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, special marine and snow squall 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, Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Finnish Meteorological Institute, and German Weather Service 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, special marine, and snow squall 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, Germany, 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, mesoscale discussions, 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.

  • Great App, Double Charged

    By nicolejeanne
    This is definitely one of the top radar apps out there, and has some great advanced features. One of my favorite is the storm tracks and ability to draw on the radar itself (this in in addition to the multitude of radar “types” and tilts on each. This is for more advanced users, so may be overkill if you just want a general idea when precip is coming, but is top notch for advanced users, and Skywarn Spotters. For those willing to learn, however, this is one of two I primarily use. That said, be aware, you will be charged twice. Once when you download the app (for recurring subscription apps, normally this is your first week/month/year of service) you get charged, but then once you open the app, you have to pay again for the subscription. (At least this is all I can assume, as Apple denied my request for refund twice, after I was charged a second time, of course with no explanation). I love the app and will continue to use it, but be aware that you will pay double your first year if you want the advanced features.
  • Totally worth the money

    Has everything you could possibly want in a compact radar and even has an app on the Apple Watch
  • Lightning data just keeps getting worse

    Seriously, claiming you get lightning data when paying is nearly false advertising. I can hear the thunder, see the lightning, but RadarScope tells me the nearest strike is 1000 miles away. What a joke.
  • Save your money. Better apps out there for way less

    I thought I would give this app a try. It’s 9.99 just for the app. You’d think it would include lightning or the like. No, you’re wrong z you have to go PRO and pay a minimum of $9.99 per year to a maximum of $180.00. For the 9.99 purchase of the app it should have at least included lightning. There is another app out there that does all that this one does for a fraction of the cost.
  • Love this App

    We had 4 tornados touch down in Ohio yesterday and this app was so convenient and helped us know where the storm was headed and we was able to track any and all tornados that did touch down. Only thing that would make this app even better is if it would have the capability of notifications
  • Great radar app perfect for Weather Enthusiasts!

    To start off with I’m actually 11 and don’t underestimate me I went to meteorology summer school and I’ve pretty much been interested in weather since on November 17th 2013 in Washington Illinois when me and my family were hit by an EF4 Tornado with 190 Mph winds and basically lost our whole house. But this radar app is perfect for tracking tornadoes and the nice thing is you can zoom in to the street like recently we got a tornado warning and it turned out that the tornado was heading directly for us and we luckily saw this and took cover! But overall great app and also great alternative to PC’s 100$ Weather Wall Radar App or the 12$ Radar Mobile (same app but ones for iPad)
  • Storm tracking accuracy

    When the radar loops and storms are tracking…the direction of storms is not accurate. Please fix it.
  • One suggestion

    5
    By TKKRutger
    This was the first app I downloaded on my first iPhone 3….and is undoubtedly my most used of all time . It has proven to be the most accurate radar app I’ve ever tried or seen and I have zero complaints,however, I do have a suggestion…it would be far easier to use the “ storm total accumulation “ map if the color sample thumbnail was border less. I find it difficult to distinguish correct colors because of the dark border on the thumbnail . Perhaps there is a setting for this ,but I haven’t found it.Thanks
  • Best of the best!

    This is hands down the best mobile radar on the market. Period. It’ll always be my one and only ***lately Ive noticed if Ive had it closed for a couple hours it takes a VERY long time to update to the current scan, even if I restart two or three times. This has never been an issue until the last few versions ***
  • Best weather tracking app

    This app isn’t for normal people trying to plan their day so unless your a storm tracker, spotter, or chaser don’t download this. However I am a chaser and this is honestly the best app to have and it’s the easiest and I only have pro 1. Great app that’s always getting better.
