WDT's RadarScope app is the standard for professional-quality radar visualization on mobile devices. Our WeatherOps app provides accurate and timely alerting for NWS advisories, lightning, and other weather events to help business clients protect their employees and assets. Each app is optimized to do certain things well, but most customers can benefit from the features of both apps. Combining them into a single app would add complexity to both the user experience and the maintenance process. Through the use of custom URL schemes and deep linking, the user experience can be integrated to facilitate fluid transitions between the two apps, providing the benefits of integration while allowing each app to focus on its strengths.
