I like radarscope the best, it is just radar and not weather. It kept me out of the storms on Lake Travis last Saturday.

whats the best radar app?? Trying to use safari to pull up the closest radar on the local news station is a total hassle. We just need it to see where the rain is this time of year.

Weather channel has their own app that works well.

From the reviews I read, none of the radar apps are that good. I just added a bookmark in Safari to take me straight to my local radar on Accuweather. Works great.
