About this app

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 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 and Australian Bureau of Meteorology 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, and special marine 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, 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 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.

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, 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 be charged to your Google Play account. Subscriptions renew automatically, and you're charged at the beginning of each subscription period. Subscriptions may be managed and auto-renewal disabled via your Google Play app after the purchase.

RadarScope for Android includes RadarScope for Wear OS devices. The Wear app does not support Pro Tier One or Tier Two features.

This app is great. The only thing(s) I'd change is the ability to mirror the split-screen. I use this app for teaching, and split screen isn't available. Also, cross-platform compatibility would be nice. I have to pay for this app twice a year - once on Google Play and again on Apple's Appstore. I want it on PC, too, but paying THREE subscriptions a year? C'mon!

Lots of bugs over the years, seems like more and more. The largest is having to reopen the app multiple times to get the radar to refresh, since last year. The icing on the cake was the subscription issue. I switched cards and when the renewal came up I couldn't renew. Google said I had a month to fix it, way too long... I was giving it 10 days until payday. But the service was abruptly stopped just in time for south MS's severe weather. Patiently waiting for a competing app to come along.

RadarScope was formerly the undisputed top radar app for mobile, but I can confidently say that they are in dire need of competition, as the developers seem to be asleep at the wheel. I am a former pro subscriber now, as the amount of bugs and glitches have completely turned me off and have me looking for an alternative. Far too often the app has completely wrecked my day in the field, failing to load the latest radar images (with excellent data service too).
