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.
Swackett 1.0 in the Mac App Store, Circa 2011
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. Swackett for macOS will be the first new app to utilize the IQ Weather Engine — and will add a fun new dimension to Swackett peeps. We can’t wait to share it with you!
