Preserving Window Positions in Swackett 7 for macOS

Swackett 7 for macOS contains dozens of windows you can use to customize a weather forecast to your liking. Swackett can manage the placement of these windows to help make sure all windows are visible on the screen at the same time (to help limit overlap).

At the same time, Swackett will preserve window positions — remembering the size and placement of windows that you move. This enables you to build a custom display that suits your need and is the same day-to-day.

Swackett version 7 Series is Coming Soon

And it’s something special.

This new version of Swackett will be made available to all Swackett macOS version 5 users — including those marooned in the older 5.1.x versions as a result of our change in ownership (sandboxing issue).

Our latest flagship app for Mac builds on the strength of our IQ Weather Engine — and layers in the very best of Apple’s latest tech — including deep support for macOS Catalina, Big Sur and Swift UI. This combination of technology unlocks the true potential for apps like Swackett.

Coming soon. 😃

Known Issue: Data Center Upgrade

We are deploying new data centers in Europe (Ireland) and Asia/Pacific region (Sydney). We are making DNS changes in all data centers.

These events could cause temporary outages lasting only a few minutes.

If you experience any issues with your Swackett apps — simply relaunch the app.

This issue has been resolved.
