Norman, OK, December 22, 2011—Winter weather can ruin the best planned holiday and business travel plans. So, what could be a better last minute holiday gift than a premium weather application? Just ask the Capitol Weather Gang at the Washington Post who recommended two apps from Weather Decision Technologies — iMapWeather Radio and RadarScope.
iMapWeather Radio, puts the power of a weather radio in the palm of your hand. With iMapWeather Radio you receive critical voice and text alerts for life threatening weather events. The application "follows" you to make sure you are alerted to threats that could directly affect you wherever you are, plus allows for 5 saved locations. The application is offered on iTunes for $9.99.
In addition to iMapWeather Radio, Weather Decision Technologies offers what is arguably the best radar application on iTunes and Android, RadarScope.
"For a serious storm tracker, this is the best radar application — it offers an interactive, professional quality radar for all NWS radar sites in the U.S.," writes James Samenow with the Washington Post.
"Both apps are designed to give users the very best weather data to keep them informed when they need information most," said Ian Stinson, Sr. Vice President of Mobile Strategies, WDT.
The RadarScope application is offered on iTunes and Android for $9.99 and the Mac App Store for $29.99.

RadarScope is a specialized display utility for weather enthusiasts and meteorologists to allow mobile and Mac users to view NEXRAD radar data and severe weather warnings. It can display the latest reflectivity, velocity, and other radar products from any NEXRAD radar site in the United States, Guam and Puerto Rico. Unlike other weather applications, RadarScope goes beyond displaying smoothed PNG or GIF images, offering instead real raw radar data, rendered in its original radial format for a high level of detail. Radarscope is available for $29.99 on the Mac Store, and $9.99 on the iTunes Store and Android Market. More info: RadarScope for iOS; RadarScope for Android, and RadarScope for Mac.
