update 3.9.2 did not fix the problem with this app crashing or freezing up. it was working fine prior to the 3.9.1 update. After several back and forth communications with WDT support it should have been fixed. I will be contacting them again in frustration. UPDATE 09/26/19 Most recent update fixed problem. APP is working again. It is truly the best radar app available and I am happy to have it working again.

Very disappointed at this point, was working well on my Android 4 Samsung Galaxy 3 until 3.9.1 ... since then for two months and two updates it still does not let me resize the display without crashing. Sept 22 update has resolved the issue. Thank You

This app is amazing. I have been through multiple hurricanes and tornadoes. This app allowed me to track exactly where the storms are and general arrival time. I've used this app to wake family up in another state and it saved their life. I love that this app also works on newer Chromebooks. There is a learning curve and it would be great if there was a better users guide. This app has so many options to provide excellent information.

Awesome app! I have used this app for at least 3 years. It's always great when you're out and about and cant pull out a laptop. I would like to see this with Android Auto so I can pull the radar up when driving down the road and not have to use my phone while driving. (Is this in the works or have been thought of? Currently Android Auto does not have any weather apps, it would be cool to see this be the first app.)

A true Doppler Weather Radar app! I just installed this app on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with Android 9 Pie and the latest security patch, and everything works great with fast redraws, and very nice zoom detail in the app's Super-Res modes with my Note 8's screen resolution set to medium (FHD+, 2220 x 1080). I elevated to the RadarScopePro Tier 1 data subscription, which is very reasonable at $10/yr. This gives me near real-time lightning reporting integrated with radar animation, which is important to me since I work with SCADA systems using wireless digital narrow band. While testing the Extended Playback feature out on the road I have noticed that my AT&T prepaid plan has poor network performance, so if you are out of the office frequently it might make sense to get a premium Verizon data plan. The RadarScopePro is a serious data rendering tool. It is not your typical emotional weather app showing a fluffy dog and kids running through the lawn sprinklers to depict a summer day.

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.
