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.

  • App not working

    By MIDIator
    I downloaded this app at the recommendation of a friend. After installing, I got the What’s New screen. When I tapped Done,I was taken to just a map, with a small pencil at the top left corner. My friend sent me a picture of his app, and I had none of the menu options at all but he does. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app thinking there may be a glitch. This time it was worse than the first, because the blue pencil didn’t show up until I tapped around the screen in various places. I’m going to press for a refund, because this is obviously not a working application for me. I have a screenshot if that was available. **Update- I just went to their app support, and watched one of the videos for iOS. I get nothing on my screen like what is demonstrated there.

    This has saved me so many times. I use this while boating and I can literally see the weather coming in real time. The precision is amazing.

    This is by far the best weather app I have ever used. As a professional pilot, weather is super important to me. This app has helped me every day when it comes to making weather decisions (go/no go). I’ve never seen another weather app that is so professional and accurate.
  • No rain(?)

    I see almost no rain on the east coast. There are multiple storms - on shore and off shore. Useless app. If it’s a setting I have wrong, even more useless. Waste of money.
  • DO NOT BUY !!!

    Once you pay $9.99 for the app you need to pay $80-$100 for all of the perks - per year ! Or $12+ per month and even then it only works in areas with a perfect signal. Doesn’t work at all in areas with storm outages !!! Save your money - use online live Doppler feed maps for free !
  • iPhone X NO SPOTTER DOT

    By Thisguysaidso
    No idea why but when turned on the dot never shows up unless I turn the phone off and then use wifi after turning it back on. Bad Form as most other dots seem to work when turned on.
  • Great but limited for outrageous pricing

    I get developers spend many hours making data useable in an app. But the fact the US government generates all the data for free that RadarScope takes and then charges for in an app-format, makes it really hard to swallow how much they’re charging. I would say the $10 basic app is somewhat fair, but but high. But go to Pivotal weather, who admittedly uses ads, and see the completely robust analytical tools (that they also take from the gov and put in a more user-friendly format) and tell me how RadarScope should be changing $100/year for a fraction of what that website provides. I mean that’s almost as much as my Internet bill. In short this app is nice but *way* overpriced. Hopefully it’s just a matter of time before a competitor seizes on their greed and brings them back down to earth.
