Partial Outage: Sunday, July 14th, 2019

Updated 1:30 PM EDT

Swackett servers in the eastern United States are currently experiencing a very heavy load — more than 20-times normal. This is causing sporadic outages for some users (if your Swackett app tries to connect to one of these servers).

We are deploying extra resources now — and we are watching the situation closely.

If you experience any issues please let us know, Our tech support lines are open!

To activate the new location, simply open the Locations Shortcut panel (Step 01 above) and tap the city name.
