Dozens out there, Steve, but the one I have used daily for years is:

MyRadar Pro
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/myra...325683306?mt=8

(recently I paid the $6 more for the reflective AND DOPPLER raw NEXRAD feeds that I can look at different angles in)

That and the VAF Wx page: http://www.vansairforce.net/weather.htm of course <g>.

v/r,
dr

+1 for MyRadar. Great for radar and winds. Worth the upgrade cost for extra features but otherwise free.

Don't pass up looking at VAF weather page, accessible from the upper left corner of the home page. It's very complete and I use it most often.

http://www.vansairforce.net/weather.htm

Additionally, I use RadarScope on my iPhone (I don't know if it's available for others)

I didn't even know that existed. Thanks for pointing it out.

+1 MyRadar Pro. Free. I use it as a quick weather check. For flight planning I use ForeFlight (subscription).
