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 arent 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 mesocyclones tell-tale hook echo, trying to pinpoint the landfall of a hurricanes 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 NOAAs 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 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. 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 combines all the features in Tier 1 with more advanced features, including 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.

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.

Missing tilt options

Sometimes radar tilt options will be there, sometimes they wont.


Great app! I live in Florida and work outside. I use radarscope nearly everyday to track storm fronts. Radarscope costs more than what a person would usually pay for an app, but its worth the money. Remember, you get what you pay for!

Dont be scared of price

All the other radar apps use whats called "smoothed over" radar scans, RadarScope does not, which means its 100% spot on. They also offer many types of radar. Velocity (to find tornadic rotation), echo tops to see storm heights, correlation coefficient which can be used to see hail, etc. Plus it shows lightning strikes, which Ill see a flash and 1 min later the bolts exact location will show up. They also integrate storm spotter locations so I can view all storm spotters in the country. Their newest feature is my favorite, which allows split screen radar. I mean seriously, this app should be leading in the App Store by a mile. Theres a reason all the professionals have this on their phone.


If you are a Meteorologist or a Weather Enthusiast, this app is PERFECT for you!

If I could give radar scope 6 stars I would

I have used this app since it first came out but unfortunately never wrote a review. This app pretty much speaks for itself. You either know what all the options are or you dont. This app is for serious weather geeks and is not for a casual person looking to see if it is going to rain tomorrow. If you are serious about weather, know how to read radar data and dont have this app yet, what are you waiting for? Best $10 ever spent in the app store, PERIOD.

The best, most accurate radar app!

RadarScope is by far the best and most accurate radar app on the market. Been a user for many years now. Shows unfiltered radar data direct from the source. No blending, smoothing, or alterations. If you are a weather enthusiast it is a must have. Down to the second live radar images coupled with numerous other feeds such as velocity and vertically integrated liquid. This app allows you to see inside the storm to see if there is any hail or rotation that would warrant a tornado warning. Some may be hesitant to purchase because of the price but its cheaper than a nice 12 pack of beer! The pro subscription is absolutely worth the price in order to see up to 20 frames, lightning, and split screen between two sets of data. Keep up the good work guys! You have saved my behind many times at work, on the trail, and in the yard!

my go to app

love this app. im a bit concerned about summer weather living in Florida. this app gives me all i need to know in an EASY and ACCURATE way. cannot say enough on how reliable and simple this is. hats off to the developers!
