RadarScope, a specialized utility for meteorologists and weather enthusiasts, allows you to view NEXRAD Level 3 or Super-Resolution radar data, as well as Tornado, Severe thunderstorm, Flash Flood, Special Marine Warnings and forecast storm tracks from the U.S. National Weather Service. It displays the most recent reflectivity, velocity and dual-polarization data from all NEXRAD and TDWR radar sites in the United States, Guam and Puerto Rico. Also, it can display data from Environment Canada or the Australian Bureau of Meteorology radars. These images are not smoothed; they are native radar data rendered in their original radial format to provide high levels of detail.
RadarScope allows you to see accurate weather radar data, whether you’re looking for the tell-tale hook echo of a mesocyclone, trying to locate the landfall of hurricane’s eyewall or small features such as velocity couplets within the storm relative velocity product.
RadarScope shows severe thunderstorms and flash floods as well as special marine warnings from the U.S. National Weather Service. You can view the active warnings list, choose a warning to see the details and zoom to the warning selected on the map.
To zoom in or out, pinch or stretch your finger. Scroll by dragging your finger across the map. To switch between radars, tap the radar sweep button located in the toolbar. Choose from one of 289 radars located in the United States, Canada and Australia, Korea, Puerto Rico or Guam. Tap the location button to plot your current location and report it to Spotter Network. To download and animate over images, tap the play button. Zoom in on the map to see the names of more than 25,000 towns and cities. Scroll down and zoom in. To see the data values, tap and hold the color legend.
RadarScope will continue to retrieve and display the latest data intelligently and automatically (approximately every two to ten minutes depending on the radar scan strategy).

RadarScope Pro, an optional auto-renewing subscription, has two tiers.
RadarScope Pro Tier 1 is an annual subscription. It provides access to lightning data in the U.S., Canada, and up to 30 frames. This data animates with the radar loop. Subscribers in Tier One can access a data interrogation tool that quickly determines data values for specific radar pixels. There is also an option to view two radar products simultaneously using the optional dual-pane mode.
RadarScope Pro Tier 2 is an annual or monthly subscription. It combines all of the features from Tier One with more advanced features such as SPC outlooks and local storm reports, hail-size and probability contours, azimuthal shear contours for the U.S., and a 30-day archive all radar products.
You will be charged for the RadarScope Pro subscription if you purchase it through your Google Play account. Subscriptions automatically renew and are charged at the start of each period. After purchase, subscriptions can be managed and auto-renewal may be disabled through your Google Play App.
