Sweater, Jacket or Coat?

In 2010 Swackett (sweater, jacket or coat) redefined the weather report for millions of people in 67 countries worldwide. We convert complex weather data into easily-understood visual weather reports — designed for people of every age.

An instant hit, Swackett saw 30,000 new users on launch day — 100,000 users after 10 days — and more than 1 million unique user accounts during it’s first year on the market.

Swackett Peeps (People Symbols)

Swackett’s unique approach to reporting the weather is to combine raw weather data (current conditions, radar, satellite imagery and detailed forecast data) with thoughtfully crafted people symbols (affectionately called “Peeps“) who always appear appropriately dressed for the weather.

Swackett Peeps are available in Editions — enabling you to choose peeps that are meaningful to you personally. You can choose from generic “classic” peeps, peeps tailored to your city, pets (including a Dog Walking Index) and even custom weather-aware images of your family members.

Swackett Apps

Swackett apps are available for your favorite devices including iPhone, Mac, iPad, your favorite web browser — and code snippets to plug in to your very own web site.

How Swackett Works

Weather reports can be a little boring. 72° and sunny in Los Angeles? Again? Been there, done that. Swackett keeps it fresh by using visual indicators (people symbols or peeps) to intuitively communicate weather conditions at a glance — with an extra dose of humor.

The bottom line: If Swackett Peeps appear sporting sunglasses, wearing a jacket, or carrying an umbrellayou probably should too.

Swackett Peep Art and Easter Eggs

Swackett apps feature a vast assortment of Easter Eggs — specialty peeps — representing current events, famous people, famous places, and political satire.

Over time Swackett Easter Egg “peeps” evolved into an art form. Some of these specialty peeps are so intricate — so precise — that they have been framed and sold as physical works of art.

Personalize your Swackett experience with Peep Editions that fit your life (and make you smile).
