Swackett made it’s original debut on the Mac platform on January 6th, 2011. Building on that macOS heritage, Swackett for macOS has been
re-imagined to make the most of the latest macOS advancements —  including but not limited to — screen size.

Swackett for macOS is built to take full advantage of the Macintosh platform’s gorgeous high-resolution displays at every size and resolution.

Swackett for macOS features multiple viewportsthat display visual weather forecasting elements based on available screen size.

  • Viewport 1: Standard Mode
  • Viewport 2: Compact Mode for Smaller Screens
  • Viewport 3: WeatherStation Mode for Large Screens

Viewport selection is automatic — but you can force Swackett into different viewport configurations by simply resizing the app’s window or engaging full screen mode.

*WeatherStation mode requires a Swackett PRO subscription.

Partial Outage: Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Swackett servers in the eastern United States were not responding quickly enough between noon and 3 PM eastern time.

The problem has been corrected — and we will be watching the situation closely.

If you experience any issues please let us know,

Issue with Humidity Levels (Resolved)

Swackett engineers corrected a problem today that could allow humidity levels to appear as zero in the United States.  The issue was caused by humidity levels in our weather data feed reporting with more decimal places than expected — which could result in a rounding error in some cases. This effected all Swackett apps.

If your local humidity does not present as expected  — please let by know by submitting a tech support ticket.

We’re sorry for an inconvenience caused by this issue — and (as always) we appreciate your continued use of Swackett apps!
