Radar Pro is an interactive Weather Radar application for anyone with a need for graphical weather updates. It allows you to view the most up-to-date weather radar data direct from the United States National Weather Service NEXRAD Level 3 Radar Network. Coverage includes the entire 50 states and Puerto Rico.
What sets Radar Pro apart from other weather radar applications is that Radar Pro receives radar data directly from the National Weather Service operational servers. The images are in their true, original format and not a smoothed graphic - smoothing any data reduces its accuracy. This means the radar data is the most accurate view of precipitation freely available to the public.
All Severe Weather Warnings for Tornado (Red), Severe Thunderstorm (Yellow), and Flash Flood (Green) issued by the National Weather Service are displayed on the map and the warning's details can be easily viewed from the Warnings pane.
Know exactly where a storm is and where it's going and how it could impact you -- set the radar image in motion and easily begin an animation loop to view storm motion over the past several minutes.

Work in Progress... - Certainly a work in progress but the developer seems committed to making this the best OSX radar app on the market. He has responded quickly to any questions I have had. Great Product and Awesome developmental direction...
Worthless! - This is a useless app. I cannot pinpoint my location or any other location. I don't see what's so "Pro" about it. If I could get my $9.99 back I would.

WORTHLESS DO NOT BUY - Does not do anything helpful at all. The tilt levels show nothing on the screen. I can't find the highways that it says it is supposed to show. The display photos are fine and some activity can be detected on tilt 1 but definitely not worth the money. I also can't zoom out on the entire US and even if I could there would be no radar images sufficient to provide any information. I am better off just going to google and going straight to weather channel.
No "map view". Low-res weather radar - Click on the menu option "Map View" and get… nothing. Black screen. $9.99 down the tubes. Look at the radar loop for your area. Weird little concentric circles of squares. Yikes, Apple. Can you do better selecting software providers?
waste of money - I wished I could get a refund junk 9.99 is ridiculous for a app like this dont waste you time or money.
Does what this pilot needs - I see this is another “app" the internet trolls are doing their dirty deeds on!! I have long had and relied on RADAR PRO on my iPhone, iPad. Recently I added it to my MAC BOOK AIR! Does it work on the “Air” as well as the other devices? YES, once one configures it properly!! That did take a “little” figuring out,…but most apps are that way to make them work properly. As a pilot, I heavily rely on accurate information! RADAR PRO gives that to me, albeit a little differently on the “AIR” than the iPhone & iPad. I decided to put this app on the ”AIR” despite the awful reviews by “some!” I’m glad I disregarded “the trolls!”
DO NOT BUY!!!! YOU ARE WASTING MONEY!!!!! - this app really doesnt even help. i have a free radar app on my iphone that is seriously so much more useful. it is so hard to maneuver across the map. very unstable too. loaded the radar for charleston because i am by myrtle. tried loading the cleveland radar to see what was going on back at home and it just froze. this app is a waste of money. now i get to see if i get a refund.
