Ears McCoy - Chasers Must Have
Been chasing for a few years now. This app makes the difference between catching great storms and wasting 14 hours of driving. Yearly subscription is nice but you can definitely do well with the standard version. I prefer the tier one and upgrade to tier two during chasing season for a couple months.
no past radar loops - Should have past radar loop
It’s good but it should offer a feature that lets you see past radar loops. And 8-12 hour past radar loops would be nice to see, especially if you are interested to see what happened overnight.
Savagebacon92 - Add placefiles?
This is a great tool that I use all of the time. I very highly recommend this app. The only improvement that I want is the ability to import placefiles. (Like GRlevelX) If that is implemented, the app will be the ultimate storm chasing tool!
Default Itunes User - Absolutely the best in the App Store
It's really quite simple, this App is hands down the most detailed available anywhere on the App Store. We as a family spend maybe $50/yr. between emergency radios, batteries, Application subscriptions. In Arkansas tornadoes happen frequently & never make it on the national news. It's just normal life our here... It helps you keep you assets safe under cover or put up when needed & shelter your family as well. You have to know a little meteorology to use the App but educating yourself never hurt anyone , I don't think....
Aitruss - Great!
Before I bought the app I watched how to use it I understand it
Man Texas storms are cray cray I got the pro tier 1
Perfect for storms I get super cells here. I love it! A few suggestions: why every time I see peters bury there’s a storm there when I look out side at peters burg it’s sunny you should fix it please. alright best weather app I seen thanks for making this pls
Do this suggestion.
harmacyist - THE radar app
Nothing can compare to Radarscope!
infinityends - Great, but...
The app is fantastic, fast refresh rates, great Storm details, very accurate. The things I wish for:
1) regional and national composite radar-the ability to watch big systems rolling towards us.
2) more detailed maps to allow precise positioning. The “I’m Here” marker is convenient but I also want to know where the storm is in relation to my kids, parents, family, friends, job sites
3) I live in North Carolina & am always keeping track of Hurricanes every year. The ability to select storms and receive regular updates and zoom to the hurricane would be fantastic.
Fawazrreerree - 👎
App not working good here in kuwait
Adenbug - It’s a Level 2 data viewer.
I’ll start this off by saying that if you’re looking for a way to view the highest res data available from the NWS’s network of radars on your phone, this does that, and it does it well enough, assuming only 5 frames of animation is fine with you.
However, I really am a bit back and forth about the pricing of the base app. It feels a bit steep considering there is functionality that’s not included out of the box. Yes, I understand that the cost of development and running their services is not free. However, considering what you get in the base app is practically just NEXRAD Level 2 data, which is provided to the public for free (do the research - the NWS has made it available in different ways and there’s different methods of viewing it, at least on a PC), it just doesn’t feel right, even with the data being redistributed by RadarScope.
I will still use RadarScope because I already spent the $10, and what is included in the base app is quality & convenient. But I have been exploring the data that is publicly available from the NWS, and I would implore others to do so as well.
nicknames times 2 - Disappointed
I have had a radar app that was very simple and accurate. Unfortunately that app had trouble with future weather due to failure of billing. This app simply does not deliver radar information that is helpful. Small areas only without input of incoming weather. No help.
A._B. - NWS instructor said this was the best
I took a National Weather Service weather spotter class (highly recommended for weather nerds). During class, I asked the instructor about apps; he didn’t want to be quoted favoring one over another. After class, he came up to me and said “Radar Scope”. I’ve played with all the advanced apps and this is one of the best, if not the best. The guy was a meteorologist.
“Do I go to the basement or not?” - a key question in tornado country when a weather alarm goes off. This and a few other apps give projected storm tracks. If I tap on the icon for the cell, I can pull up detail on storm characteristics. I can see when I need to go to the basement and when I can (warily) stay upstairs
JanaDyer - Must Have!!!
I downloaded this app for the first time back in 2010/2011 and absolutely love it!! Support is super responsive and they welcome feedback too. The features are great and they have so many different views and radars. I also live that Mping updates and you can also view local and spotter reports. I have ZERO complaints. LOVE this app! I have it on my phones, iPads and laptops and they work person all platforms. Keep up the amazing work!
Latenightninja - Great app, needs to fix the MPH part.
Hard to say anything is wrong with this app. I love it. But I’ve been told for years they were going to fix the MPH units on here. It used to work. Could be easy fix. But they answer back with excuses and “it’s coming soon”. It was already here....
Anyway, otherwise love it.
TStan97 - Wish there was an added feature
I love this radar app and it’s by far the best on the market. I have nothing to complain about, however I do wish there was one added feature that would greatly improve it. I enjoy watching the radar and looking at storms even when they’re not near me, especially tornado warned storms. The only problem is when I see the storms, I can only see the general location of the storm with respect to cities. I wish there was a feature that allowed me to see the precise location of where certain storms are. Even if it was just something where I pressed my finger and it pulled up the latitude and longitude coordinates so I could search them. It would make it a lot more enjoyable for me and would help me to know exactly what houses or businesses are being affected rather than general locations.
BradRiggan - Best Radar App
Stop looking for radar apps. You have found the absolute best with RadarScope. I’m been a ProTier 2 users for years now and it’s worth every penny. Living in tornado alley, this is a must have. Thanks to the RadarScope team for all you do!
umjams - Great app, incredible features, lacking 1 thing...
This app is amazing. The options for radars are incredible and are extremely helpful. This would very much get 5 stars if it wasn’t for the fact that my subscription doesn’t carry over to my iMac. Separate paid app on that platform.
Vmiyoshi - Too expensive
Whatever happened to weather underground? I use to love using the radar with all its feature on the website. Now the radars are saying down for maintenance for 3 year now. This app is 10 dollars, but you quickly learn its 100 dollars a year to get the features you really want. I want my money back!
More PI - Good radar for chasing and keeping the family safe
This is the best radar for keeping people safe including the 2011 tornadoes
B33L33vr - New 8 April, 2020 Apple iPad update keeps crashing on start
The new release crashes repeatedly on startup. Bad bug.
The window collapses to background and does it every time the window is brought up to focus.
bumpkidd13 - 5 Stars
Best radar app ever!!!
Stormchaser32 - Suggestion
I love the app and all of that. All I wish is that you guys would add a couple things like your able to change the refresh time so like you could have it set to liek 30 secs and if there’s a new scan it would pop up because now it takes like 4-8 mins and I think you guys should add special weather statements I think that would be cool too. And that your able to change the color of the warning so like if you want a blue outline for a confirmed tornado on the the ground or a pink outline for a tornado emergency or a different color for a svr thunderstorm warning if you want if that makes sense. And have hail tracks and see the size of it and you could see what percent of hail you could get and what size of hail it is if that makes sense and better road maps if that that makes sense but other than that I love your guys app and hopefully it will be better in the future
RezzDogs - My favorite app until last update
Edit: author fixed the crashing on ipad 3. Great response time. Best radar app out there in my opinion.
SAP0570 - Best Radar on App Store
Still the best Radar available for iOS. Worth every penny.
Mercy, Spfd. - Tornado alley
The best, most comprehensive radar/weather app I've seen.
Hoop there it is - Since the last update won't open.
The app won't open since the last update. I am using an iPad with iOS 10.3.4
Screen goes black, then back to home page. I deleted and reinstalled app with same results.
Any ideas? It my favorite weather app and going to need it real soon in the Midwest.
AbeBush - UPDATE 3/31: THANK YOU for bringing back the original convective outlook colors!
Best stormchasing and severe weather app out there. BUT I hate the “improved” Convective Outlook colors. They used to be brown for general thunderstorms, bright green for Marginal, yellow for Slight, Orange for Enhanced, red for Moderate, and magenta for High. But they changed them to faded looking very light pastel colors for ALL risks, and now it’s impossible to tell which risk areas are under unless you go to SPC’s website. I wish they’d go back to the original color scales; or even better, allow users to choose between a “menu” of color scales, or create their own.
Same goes for radar color scales! And Mesoscale Discussion color scale differentiation by type.
In addition add day 2, day 3, day 4-8 outlooks
Add 12 hour, 24 hour frontal boundaries.
Add COUNTIES to areal watches not just the parallelogram. Differentiate between ‘regular’ and PDS watch boxes.
allow background maps or AT LEAST more background color options besides just black.
Allow more land markers like highway and road markers, street names etc at least when you zoom down.
Also, watches do not work for me, only warnings. I usually have watches turned off both from the app and through Allisonhouse but when I turn them on via both data sources they don’t work at all. And yes I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app and that doesn’t fix it.
Allow users to filter how much clutter they want to see or not see both with clear air mode and Precipitation mode.
WAY WAY WAY more color scales and user defined attributes for radar, NWS products, and maps!!!!!
Thytr - The best radar app for serious users
Although not a app I could recommend for a beginner, it is certainlythe most in depth and comprehensive app for the serious user or weather spotter. It offers views that are not available on other apps. Highly recommended!
Arkomo - Now crashes on IPad 3
After this update my favorite radar crashes every time and never opens. Hope they can fix it!
Don from KY - After most recent upgrade
After upgrade app will not stay on. Loss connection.
Great app before changes.
Tbtr - Fantastic
I’m going to keep this short. This radar is absolutely perfect for those who like to follow severe weather events. For $10 you get so many different types of useful maps (correlation coefficient, Velocity Scans, and high res reflectivity just to name a few).
If you aren’t familiar with reading more advanced weather maps, you probably won’t find use for this app. But if you are, wow. It’s just incredible. So easy and seem-less to follow severe weather events. 5/5
hashiragin - Ehhhh
Seems useless unless if you pay for the pro bundles.....
hollow7392 - Amazing app
This Radar app is the hands down best radar app out there on mobile.
RonR66 - RadarScope! Nothing better!
Hands down the best radar app.
Many radars to choose from!
Stretzo - Rip off
10 dollars for a sub par app that doesn’t fully work unless you pay monthly ! Thanks a lot guys! Way to rip off the public.
Whittier Weather Service - Top Notch! Nothing but the Best!
You can't get any better than this! Five Stars!!
Learn how to use the app before you rate it!!!
Flash_699 - Wonderful app, just needs to be CarPlay enabled
I’ve had this app for years. Depended on it for job related functions as well as home life. I live in the PNW mountains and no weather station has accurate forecasts so use the app to track snow and rain showers to time activities around. As basic as “should I let the dogs out now or wait for a bit until the rain lets up?” Years ago, I used the relative velocity display during a tornado watch and saw a rotation starting near my hotel. Opened the curtain to see a tornado touchdown a few hundred yards from me.
Would be great if they could CarPlay enable this. As an RV’er and someone who drives a lot, it would be great to quickly pull up on the vehicle display to see if I’m driving into light rain or a heavy storm cell, rain or snow, etc.
Fuzzq - Disappointed
I pay 99$ a year for pro. The first time a dangerous tornado comes close and the shear rings did not appear to support the data. Maybe don’t need to pay extra for Pro?
Roninator - Has historically been great but instantly crashes
I've got the latest iOS on my phone and the latest iPadOS on my iPad, running the latest version of RadarScope from the App Store and it crashes immediately upon launch. I've tried rebooting my devices too, with no luck.
Johnny Dont - Works great on old iPads
I have a retirement home for old iPads and I give them jobs to do. One is to display a continuous weather radar loop. I don’t know exactly how old these iPads are but they have the old pre-lightning cables and run 9.3.5.
This chore was previously accomplished by an app I won’t name but is the same as a domestic terrorist organization. Apparently marketing was all on vacation the day they chose a name. Anyway, recently they quit serving up the data for the app.
I looked for every possible app that would still install and run on 9.3.5 but they were all really primitive and/or crashed and/or had obnoxious ads. Then somehow this one popped up as recommended and claimed to run on 9.3.5. I took a huge risk because there was no trial version but I ponied up the ten bones and it paid off.
This app works great on my senior iPad and hasn’t crashed once. No ads! There are subscriptions but they’re not required for the basic features that I need. It’s not nagging me for anything. So far it just sits there, dependably displaying a radar loop, 24/7, no ads, no nags, just doing its job.
Adiaz84 - Suggestions
Please add a way to change the radar color tables also make this free make some features free please!!! Anyway good app!!!!
Seth David - RadarScope TV mirroring broken
Not working correctly on iPad, please fix (just see a tiny portion rendered on TV).
Also when you stop screen mirroring the city name font size is too large.
Somoma - A Must-Have for RV’ers
We have a motorhome which makes us vulnerable in extreme weather situation not only when driving but when parked. This app has been fantastic to help up drill down to our exact location and track storm paths to see if they are coming near us. Using this app, we are able to see if we should move to a building or is it ok to stay put. We also use it to see if coastal storms are going to ruin a visit to the beach or will track to the north. When driving, we can see the weather that is ahead of us and plan accordingly. I recommend this app to all my rving friends and encourage them to subscribe to the PRO version for the best info.
Chftyrhdjf - A serious app for serious people
I have yet to see a 1- or 2-star review from a RS user worth reading, let alone taking seriously. This app is powerful, highly usable, and packed with value. Many people will pay more for their next latte, so I'm not impressed with whining about the cost, either. Bottom line: Look at the substance of the positive vs negative reviews, and then make the right choice -- download the app and support its devs with a few dollars. You won't find a better radar app at ANY price.
the original sxm - Something is missing
So far I really like this app. However, I can’t figure out how to see a broader view of the radar. For instance, if I’m outside Philly I get the local DIX radar. But that only goes so far and I can’t see what’s coming in from State College. Can you only see one radar station at a time? There’s no regional view? National view?
Ozdude|a/c2 - It’s ok but not that great next to storm.
I went out and purchased thinking would be better than storm radar after an article on best radar apps. But honestly not that exciting for the cost...rather us Storm
DunnAwayWithYou - Weekly Forecast
Good app overall I guess. Why is there no 5 day forecast I paid more than any other weather app and didn’t know there wasn’t a extended day forecast on here.
rpgj - Was Good: Now Only Force Crashes On Opening
No way to even use the app anymore. Update didn’t work. Force crash on iPad Pro.
Tacitdrop - Cear Air Mode
I’ve had and relied on this app for many years. However, what’s with the “clear air mode” that many radar locations display now? I understand what it is but don’t understand why a radar location is in clear air mode when there is moderate to heavy rain.
Brainal - A few tweaks and we have a 5 star
RadarScope is the best radar app out their for the serious weather geek. It however is missing a few things. 1.CONUS Radar view. 2. VAD Wind Profile 3. Rocker Looping 4. Lower the price on pro tier 2. 5. The ability to set perimeters and specific locations.
oceangopher - This is the best radar app on the market.
No other radar app gives you the data to view, manipulate, and overlay like radar scope. I have followed many individual thunderstorms, tropical cyclones, and mesoscale features, and it is a good way to assess high humidity near the surface. It works. If you don’t understand weather radar you will not appreciate this app.

Naughty Garfield - No 30 Frames Radar
Subbed for Pro and you are able to select only NOAA’s 30 Frames. RadarScope only has 6 Frames. Even with NOAA 30 Frames Radar, the app only plays 6 and the Radar looks so granny it’s not even high res.
Benyyboyy - Not worth $10
If you buy just the app what you get is VERY limited. You can’t even get a regional radar. You have to select each radar site to view a whole storm. No dew points, no wind speeds, no temps. You probably have to subscribe to the monthly subscription to get those. This app is nothing but selecting between radar sites and various settings per radar. Oh but you can draw on it. Wow. Usually I’m quite savvy and once I explored all the app and what just the $10 app purchase would get me, I feel very ripped off. I used to use MyRadar and vs. what you get with $10 on RadarScope. MyRadar is by far the best option. Should have went with MyRadar pro.
PatrickEbertz - This is the best weather app
This is the best weather app and give the best accuracy in Minnesota it’s always right and it doesn’t lie and sometimes it can but always 100% right for Weather I love this app hope this app gets updates every day and hope it stays strong and hope it’s fast and you should make everything free in the apps in New York to pay for anything it’s kind of dumb they have to pay in the app Make the app free so you don’t have to pay for anything please only in the app but if you’re in the App Store you have to pay for it but only if you’re an app you do not have to pay for if you buy it so you don’t have to pay for any extra prescription plans and make them free
Mesocyclone - 4.5 Really
I would really like to see watch boxes, a composite view of the U. S. And the ability to to toggle the information to make it 5 stars for $100. A quick note is that I-22 between Memphis TN metro and Birmingham AL is in open now.
294bss - Only one detail missing for 5 stars
I have been waiting for a week for some feedback but the staff has not answered; maybe an early Thanksgiving; quite justified
Shiney Lil Gallo - Best radar app
Best radar app I’ve used.
Merc88 - Question
Why is there no radar on Apple or Google CarPlay functions... it’s not like we don’t look at the screen anyway. Is this a lawyer function? “Too risky?”
Texan1977 - Emergency Management Preferred Radar App
We have been utilizing RadarScope since launched at the Navarro County, TX - Office of Emergency Management. The products offered in both the base app and Pro version are excellent for units when mobile or working away from the operations center. I would highly recommend everyone who has at least basic knowledge of reading radar data and derived products to give this a shot!
Wolf By The Ears - No radar app can hold a candle to this one
I have been a weather nerd since I was a little kid, and I’m a trained Skywarn Storm Spotter. I first downloaded this app in 2013 when a meteorologist mentioned it after I was complaining about how I struggled to find a decent one. Most radar apps have a smoothing algorithm that obliterates storm structure. This app does a beautiful job with with its radar display. I’ve struggled to find certain details like specific rotation data inside a supercell storm, the correlation coefficient to detect tornado debris, decent hurricane reflectivity to see structure of the rain bands as well as the rotation within (I live in Florida), or just basic resolution to see what part of the storm will hit my location. This app does it all and so much more that I could write a book on it. The features of data are endless. I’ve used it through Hurricane Matthew, Irma, and Dorian (and plenty of other tropical storms). The storm season here has me tracking several hundred storms over the years. I have it on my MacBook Pro and my iPhone. There’s a reason all the professionals, scientists, and storm chasers use this app. It’s the best $10 I’ve ever spent.
DaSchnuz - A very good app but needs better map definition
I was PRO level 1 for a few years before upgrading to PRO level 2. This is the best weather app on the market!! There is only one hitch, lack of road support.. You would think you could see where the bad weather was located, NOOO, you just get a generalization!!! So you could actually drive into a dangerous storm, because the map is that general. I would’ve thought with PRO level 2, it would’ve had a better map. Apparently you don’t have the ability to provide a Top Tier weather app, with a top tier road map! Please Fix, kindly...
PMichael-49 - PMichael-49
I live in North Texas, part of Tornado Alley. I’ve had this app for more than three years and I consider it a “must have” if you live in this area or anywhere that is prone to severe weather. It takes a while to learn how to use it but it is literally a life saver.
JJstar - Uh Oh
The KBOX radar site is not currently working?
voldigar1 - They increased monthly subscribers!
Why did you guys increase your monthly subscription? This is stupid.
iPhone Duke - Pro Options Lacking
I’m paying $100/yr for the pro tier two and can’t even get an option to change the freaking radar playback speed? Seriously? Though honestly it should probably be a standard option like many other radar apps. Even the desktop version of RadarScope has had this for ages. What’s taking so long? I’ll update this review back to five stars once we get this option we should’ve had years ago. I hate how slow it is playing back 30 frames on Pro. Also the Apple Watch app needs an overhaul. I use it all the time and it’s buggy and slow, even on new hardware and fast internet.
lukewl - Been using for 6+ years
Love this app and all of the continuation of updates and features. The only added feature I wish that would be added would be the option to see where a watch area has been issued. Maybe a faded overlay with different colors for the types of watch. The only feature I would like to see in the future!
Max Decool - Good app!
I enjoy this app a lot but recently KATX is not giving me anything to look at and it’s been like that for a little more than a week now. Please fix this radar soon as you can!!
Rg3xwees - Horrible Pricing
I payed 10$ just to download the app to find out everything is is hidden behind a subscription wall. What was to point of paying the 10$ to download if your toning to hit me with subscriptions. #highwayrobery maybe think about charging less for the app so people will get the subscriptions
phrz - Apple says it "works great" on watchOS...
Apple advertises this app as a great example of a standalone app on the new watchOS, whose main feature is standalone apps, but the app falls flat without the iPhone app to set favorite locations, which is not adequate UX for a $10 app.
The same issue occurs on tvOS, where it's even less understandable given the broad screen real estate and built in text entry APIs.
Worst, the interface these other hampered-functionality apps reference on the iPhone version is basically impossible to find.
Jmonahan12 - Good
Please add a widget
@Codylox - Really great app for tracking
The only problem l really have with this app is that you can’t zoom into locations close enough to get an exact location
X4$5;17 - KFWS RADAR
28hrs behind , how fix this , update ?
lovely593 - Problem
I had RadarScope for a while now and when I got a new phone I can’t remember what email address I used to log in with.
spring grl - Lost in the update
Wow, this update stinks. Took away most of the features and lost resolution. Are you making us pay $100 per year for what I had before? Really?
Gimpelson96 - Best of the best
Great app, not for beginners as you need to have more than a basic knowledge of how to read and interpret radar on the map. Once you are able to understand you will discover how much this app has to offer. I have the base app without a subscription and that is good enough for me. Radar updates very quickly. Kansas City was nearly slammed with an EF4 tornado in May of this year (2019) and RadarScope displayed accurate velocity to pinpoint where the mile wide tornado was located. I was able to monitor the debris field as well using correlation coefficient. This app is strictly radar and is best used with other apps such as The Weather Channel for forecasts. This is my go to radar app. Fantastic. The only change I would make would be a more detailed map.
Asphalt-man - Best Weather Radar App
There’s a reason you see so many pros including NOAA using Radsrscope in their tweets, it’s simply the best. It’s technical so if you don’t need that it’s not worth the cost beyond the free, but if you rely on radar, it doesn’t get any better than this app. Remember all radar sources are the same, its each app that takes that data and deciphers it, well RadarScope hits a home run.
Paul the ripped off - Not what I wanted
I wanted a super radar composite but got a single radar that does not show the whole picture. Unless you are a scientist, don’t waste your money
dtxrider - Have been using Radar Scope For 7 years ?
real time weather ground and above ground exponential earth climate events
Tga 2001 - ?
iPhone unable to install latest update. Says it is not available but it’s in my update list from 8-26.
NOLA Drew - Great app
Love the app
Wish you had Bahamas radars!!
lihan161051 - Must-have tool
This app packs more info into a screen than any other I’ve used, including the NWS radar pages. I recommend Pro Tier 1 for the lightning strike layer, it’s one of the best ways to spot active convection there is. That and the storm tracks are my two favorite features.
I would like some way to filter the warnings by region, though. Without that, the count of warnings isn’t very helpful to me. Filtering by region and type would make that feature much more useful.
AW Bugs - Needs Improvement...
This app needs 2 major features that most radar apps already include:
#1 Hybrid Satellite Map - Display sat image and road network. Currently the “map” consists only of a black background with state/county border lines and major hwys. It’s 2019!
#2 National Radar Combined - Display all radars rather than isolating a single site. While it may be faster to load, it can be confusing when trying to view radar in a certain location only to realize the area you’re viewing is not included in the active radar site range.
These 2 items should at least be options, which could be turned on/off rather than omitting them altogether.
upssnowman - Best for Chasing
Used it a long time for storm chasing just simply the best there is
Homiej23 - Best radar app around.
This radar app has features found on no other radar apps. From velocity to correlation coefficient to echo tops, it has tools that allow people who have a decent knowledge on how to understand radar to accurately analyze storms. Only issues I have is storm relative velocity is very low resolution compared to the base velocity and the lack of the road networks.
Toristorii - Fantastic!
I help run a helicopter touring company and we use RadarScope exclusively when we’re watching the radar closely during the summer thunderstorm season. I have no complaints at all! It’s a great app!
8waxahachie - IFR pilot
If you are not a true radar expert- don’t purchase this as most likely you will not be able to use it to your satisfaction.
I myself am satisfied with the purchase as I always read the reviews and know what I am purchasing. I strongly recommend something much more simple for the people that just want to see the local weather.
The app developers should be more forthcoming on the use. I truly understand the different displays and i use the terms daily and honestly believe I got my money worth .
I am rating it low as I really don’t believe it’s anything beneficial to the average person.
sasha_nola - Fantastic, except for Apple Watch version
The iPad version of RadarScope is unsurpassed for this weather geek; haven’t seen anything better. However the Apple Watch app version is very disappointing. I have removed it. It does not know what it wants to be. I need an untethered Watch radar app to use when out on a run, walking the dog, or on a ride. Although it is intended to work while untethered, with my usage and Verizon etc, it loads a radar image less than 10% of the time I try to use it untethered. 90% of the time it loads nothing or occasionally returns a “failure to to connect to parent app” error. I have gotten caught in downbursts that I could have avoided if the app would have shown me local radar and/or lightning when I needed the info. In addition, I do not need to see, on my tiny watch screen, the myriad different products available from my local radar station (KLIX); that is what my iPad/phone version is for. Finally, I do not find the watch app to be useful in tethered mode either; I inevitably would rather have a look at the radar on my phone instead. Please redesign the watch app to be reliable in untethered mode even if it means losing many of the specialist radar products.
JordanRil - Could be more personal to your location.
It would be helpful for alerts to be for your specific location only, not the entire United States.
Carrington Woods - Perfect for a pilot!
I am young student pilot! As we know, pilot’s flying in the air must know about the weather and the atmospheric conditions just as well as meteorologists on the ground. Though I may be a lot more into weather than other Pilot’s I know, it is still important to know about storm intensities, cell movement, etc. I am only 19 and my understanding of meteorology is average compared to professionals, but with the help of this app, my knowledge has and will continue to grow very quickly!
I’ve downloaded many apps in the past and was disappointed by the apps and their small capabilities. I love the work, dedication and time the developers of RadarScope put into this app. Definitely worth the money! I will tell my fellow pilots about it!
E LEE B - Not happy
This app cost money and then wants a subscription on top of that!! My free weather radar apps are better. Don’t waste your money.
UC+pilot - Great app for Skywarn
I use this app while doing Skywarn weather tracking because it has all the tools you need in one package. Wish it was CarPlay compatible, but a great app otherwise. If you want local high resolution detail of what a storm is doing, this app gets you there. If you want to see what the overall national map looks like, go to the NWS website or get an different app to work alongside this one. The Pro levels give you added goodies like lightning tracking and other handy tools in the tool box. Well worth it...🌪🚗
Respectfully - Good but...
Edit - Problem resolved. Thank you!
Edit - Currently on RadarScope,KBOX is displaying data which is 11.5 hrs. old. However, two other radar apps are displaying current KBOX scans.
Radar Scope continues to provide its users with an ever expanding array of weather data. However, the increase in time it takes to generate each new volume scan comes at a cost. Over the years, the lag time between what you see on your phone and what you observe out your window has noticeably increased. Today the skies opened up and delivered a torrential downpour while RadarScope displayed six or more minutes of clear sky before eventually catching up and showing the storm move over the area.
Usskywatch - Perfect!
Title says it all. Great app and watch companion app. Thank you!
Billbuck88 - $9.99 and then they want more!
Pay up front and then they want a subscription for basics that other apps include for a one time fee. Only reason I got it was for the Apple Watch ability. Total waste of money..
royal088 - Better apps for less money
You should listen to the negative reviews. This app is too narrow in scope of what a decent radar should show you. I don’t get to see the entire nation in one image only individual sites. Useless! Who wants to see only 6 frames of one radar site.
ChaseAdam4545 - Favorite radar app
We live in NE Iowa in a small town I was hit by 3 squalls this year it’s so weird! Anyway this helps me see winds (using Velocity) and it’s better than the weather app Storm Track 7! A NE Iowa weather app! I like the classic radar type not to much though!
Cherokee T - RadarScope
I love RadarScope but I wish it had street maps.
JSchnee21 - Perfect — Except
I really wish there was an option to merge the radar feeds from multiple stations to provide a regional radar overview. As is, I need to use other apps to get this representation.
You would not need to support all of the radar products, nor refresh the feed as often. But I just want to easily see the larger radar storm picture to the West of my home (into the next state or two)
Currently, this means browsing the feeds of 3 or 4 different stations and then forming a mental picture in my minds eye (-:
Or using a different App )-:
stanw55 - This has been a wonderful app.
No complaints until about a week ago when the radar data stopped being displayed. Now I’m looking for a replacement.
Rh800 - Not forecasting Barry storm
My free local station app provides radar info for storm Barry with rain and tracking, but this app only shows small/tiny icon(s). Save your money. I assume I must pay additional to turn on radar for this area of the US map.
Jared #884 - Best radar app
Been using this for a solid 3 months and I can’t help watching it constantly. Perfect app for one who loves tracking storms. Though I have one question: are Watches going to be added (Tornado Watch, Severe Thunderstorm Watch, etc)?

@spann RadarScope for the win! Is Tier II worth it?
@KarliRitter +1 for using RadarScope!!!

@bradbesial @NWSKansasCity RadarScope isn't great when it comes to calculation of storm relative velocities. Would…
Hail core incoming could see some quarters and 60 mph winds.

I have no idea if you can hack RadarScope reports but this is something else!
