Weather apps come and go while WDT's RadarScope continues to be a favorite among meteorologists. Design challenges arise as we seek to add features such as new product types, subscription data feeds, animated image exporting, and timeline scrubbing while maintaining ease of use. As the smartphone and app markets mature, new approaches are required to maintain a successful product. We present the latest additions to the app and discuss our efforts to meet the challenges associated with continued development and support of RadarScope in its seventh year on the App Store.
