Swackett 1.0 in the Mac App Store, Circa 2011
Swackett has always been a whole new way to look at the weather. We convert complex, raw weather data into easily-understood, visual weather reports — designed for people of every age. Our unique approach is to combine raw weather data (current conditions, radar, and detailed forecasts) with thoughtfully crafted people symbols (called “peeps”) who always appear appropriately dressed for the weather.
In short, if Swackett Peeps appear sporting sunglasses, wearing a jacket, or carrying an umbrella — you probably should too.
It’s all about to change: Soon we’ll be launching Swackett for macOS — version 5 — an even newer way to look at the weather. Redesigned from the original sketches in 2010, the original Swackett team has been working on this evolution for more than two years. We can’t wait to share it with you.
Writing about Swackett? You’re not alone! Swackett apps have been featured on CNN, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, FORTUNE, Mashable, CNBC — and even the Wall Street Journal.
We want to thank you for taking the time to write about our apps — and have provided resources such as logos and screen shots to help your story.
These charts change by the hour — but were delighted to see Atmospheric™ in the Top 10 with some other great weather apps.
Thank you so very much for supporting our apps! — Team Swackett

Swackett® and 20th Century Fox are partnering to bring Swackett users exclusive access to smart, weather-aware clothing recommendations based on Michael “Mike” Thurmeier’s animated film “Ice Age: Collision Course”, which opens in theaters on July 22, 2016.
Starting today, Swackett users will have the opportunity to enable the Ice Age: Collision Course artwork (Swackett peeps) as Manny, Diego, and Sid join up with Buck to fend off a meteor strike that would destroy the world.
Swackett’s latest flagship weather app (Swackett 2) comes with a lot more screen real estate for showcasing peeps (Swackett people symbols). All of Swackett’s signature peep editions are being converted to high resolution artwork — and the Dog Walking Index is no exception. The Swackett Dog Walking index — now at version 2 — features bigger, crisper and more entertaining artwork than ever before.
Swackett Dog Walking index benefits Canine Companions for Independence. The premise for the partnership is swackett’s newly launched dog walking index, a feature that tells users when weather conditions are best for their dog on a scale of one to 10. The CCI brand will be represented on the dog images featured in the app to help raise awareness for the organization that provides highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities and to professional caregivers. Additionally, swackett users will be able to donate to CCI straight from the app by clicking on the dog images – an innovative fundraising approach.
