RadarScope App Details

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 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, Puerto Rico, Korea, and Okinawa, 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), Flash Flood Warnings (GREEN polygons), or Special Marine Warnings (ORANGE 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 with two different tiers to choose from. Super-res products are still available to all RadarScope users without purchasing a subscription. RadarScope Pro Tier 1 is an annual subscription that provides access to real-time lightning data that animates along with the radar loop and up to 30 frames of radar data, including extended loops of Super-Res Level 2 data. Tier 1 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 2 is an annual or monthly subscription that combines all the features in Tier 1 with more advanced features, including SPC outlooks, local storm reports, a 30-day archive of all radar products, estimated hail size contours, rotation (azimuthal shear) contours, and the ability to use subscription features across multiple platforms. RadarScope Pro subscriptions are charged to your App Store account. It 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.

    As someone who is constantly upgrading devices when Apple releases them, it’s super nice having the app optimized for them so quickly! This is a very polished app and I would recommend to any weather professional.
  • Don’t be fooled

    This app is ineffective for the 10dollars spent. The app requires 100+ dollars for full function. Run away folks.
  • Very good radar

    Overall is probably the most detailed and accurate radar out there compared to other apps on the AppStore.
  • Unhappy

    I have had this app for a long time and loved it! Recently it has been very slow and doesn’t show the information in real time.
  • Great app for weather enthusiasts/professionals

    It’s the best app out there for enthusiasts and professionals. I would love to be able to view multiple radars at one time then this app would be perfect. Also Siri shortcuts would also be a great benefit. Stickers should include a static radar image like the Weather Channel.
  • Wonderful!

    Wonderful radar app. Use it daily. Keep up the fantastic work.
  • If you are able to understand the different radar types then buy it! I love it!

    I’ve been using this app since March, because a fellow friend of mine, who is also a meteorologist recommended this app to me. I’m in love with this app. I don’t believe that you need to pay anymore than what you need to. The price it asks for is the price it really is. You don’t need to pay extra for pro stages if you don’t want those stages. You have access to every nexRad radar. You can see a variety of things I didn’t know was there. There is Velocity (rotation), reflectivity (normal radar), correlation coefficient (shows any non-meteorological debris), etc. I love it. I have payed for any of the pro tiers, and I don’t plan too. Even without lightning, I am able to tell if it has a lot of lightning in it.
  • Lacking support from help tab

    Love the app but am still learning how to use and understand it. Last 3 times I have gone to the helps tab to get information, I only get a blank screen. I have up dated my phone and restarted it thinking the problem was on my end...obviously it is not.
  • Worth the buy & tier 1!

    If you’re a huge fan of the weather, especially when it comes to looking at the radar, this app is heaven for you! I recently upgraded to tier 1 for dual-pane radar, lightning, and inspector tools, and I outta say it’s been well worth it! A request to RadarScope, You probably won’t see this but could you add the town of Alto, Michigan if possible to the map? It makes for a great middle town between Grand Rapids, Clarksville, Lowell, and Caledonia Michigan. I also request this because the town has seen some nasty weather over the years and there’s been no proof to pinpoint the town on radar... just had to take a guess on it’s location. On top of that, there are quite a few residents in the town. It’s no ordinary one street pass-through. Thanks otherwise!
  • Great app!

    You guys have been my go-to for years! Wish list: * Composite images. I’d love to be able to see KATX and KLGX at the same time. * 20 frame loops on Apple Watch for Pro subscribers. If this feature already exists, it’s hard to find.
