New in Swackett 6 for iOS 13: Weather Widget Collections

Choose the weather information you want to view — and how you see it. It’s like crafting your own weather app.

Over the years people have been very vocal about their Peeps in Swackett apps. Some people adore them. Other people think they are a distraction. With Swackett 6 the user can decide which user interface objects to turn on — so you can have your Peeps (and any other Swackett widget) just the way want them.

Swackett 6 apps feature dozens of weather widgets grouped into stylized collections. Widget collections can be enabled with a single tap — and widgets from different collections can be mixed and matched to suit any need. 

Because widgets can change their appearance based on the data they are displaying — and because of the sheer number of available widgets — the ability to display a widget’s name and ID is available in Settings. Making the widget name and ID visible can aid in organizing widgets to suite a user’s taste.

Widget names and IDs are hidden by default, but can be made visible when needed. Visibility is controlled in the Layout and Skins section of the Setting tab.

Available now the App Store.

New for Swackett 6 and iOS 13: The Little Peeple Edition

A little version of Swackett specifically designed for the young people in our lives! Featuring little peeps engaged in weather-appropriate activities, this lil’ edition is fun, fast and accurate.

Designed for children ages 4 – 9 this edition can be helpful with decision making and building independence. Children are able to open the app by themselves, view the daily weather symbols, and use that information to choose appropriate clothing to wear. Parents and caregivers appreciate that it lightens their daily workload.

Features appealing to young people are the child-like figures dressed in clothing that currently correspond to the weather and colorful graphics.

Available now in Swackett 6-Series Apps.

New for Swackett 6 and iOS 13: The Pittsburghese Edition

Yinzer (noun): Historically used to identify the people from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania region who often speak with a heavy Pittsburghese accent. As Team Swackett is born and bred in Western Pennsylvania — we couldn’t wait to add a special Pittsburghese Edition so our peeps would be all like “Swackett n’at — the quirky little weather app for Yinzers”.

Available now in Swackett 6-Series Apps.
