So what is “RadarScope”? RadarScope is a very advanced radar app for iPhones and Androids as well as PC's. This is NOT a cheap app when it comes to weather radar apps. It is $10, but if you know how to use it, it’s well worth it!
For example, as most of were woken up by the winds around 3 am this morning, I turned right to this app for answers. By looking at its advance radar technology, I could see where the “squall line” was and where it was heading in its basic mode (SuperRes Reflectivity Tilt 1). But that’s not all. There is another mode that is even more impressive, the “Base Velocity Tilt 1” mode. This mode can show an accurate visible line of where the strongest winds were.
So the bottom line, if you just look at the radar for a few seconds to find out if it’s going to rain this app it probably too advanced for you and not worth the ten dollars, but if you love tracking storms and understand how to use this very technical app like myself then the ten bucks is well worth what this app has to offer!
