New 6-Panel Option for macOS

 

In June 2018 Swackett’s version 5-series included new PRO weather gauges originally designed for large screens. Never intended to be used on smaller screens — users made it clear they wanted to see these new gauges on any size screen.

We heard you. 🙂

Version 5.1 includes a new option adding 2 panels to the classic Swackett 4-panel design. These new panels house these PRO weather gauges on two different tabs — even on the smallest MacBooks.

May 30, 2018

What’s new version 5? Everything!

Swackett has been re-imaged for modern macOS computers, small screens and large. We’ve given the famous Swackett people symbols (peeps) a new place to share their dynamic visual weather forecasts — and with the new PRO upgrade — Swackett peeps appear not only appropriately dressed for the weather, but suggesting weather-appropriate activities.

For the first time, Swackett works with the Touch Bar on your MacBook Pro. Also for the first time, Swackett now supports small screens without scrolling. And in PRO mode Swackett takes full advantage of large screens to showcase WeatherStation gauges, This Day in Weather History, and more.

There is no other weather app like Swackett. Test drive the most innovative weather app ever created today — for free!

Known Issue: Peep Clothing Calibration in Select Locations (Celsius Temperature Selected)

It appears there was a glitch in the custom Celsius temperature settings in the Personalization Center.

Peeps would sometimes appear with the wrong clothing — and spine badges were incorrect (off by 30 degrees or so).

Engineering has deployed a fix now — and will investigate further to make sure the issue is solved everywhere.

This issue has been resolved. We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused by this issue — and (as always) we appreciate your continued use of Swackett apps!

Known Issue: Processing Complex GPS Codes

Please do not include the degree symbol (°) in custom locations.

Please do not include N, S, W or E direction designators in custom locations.

And if in the western hemisphere, please include the dash () for latitude coordinates.

For example, Denver has an GPS coordinate of:

39.7392° N, 104.9903° W

But should be entered in the Personalization Center as:

Latitude: 39.7392

Longitude: -104.9903

This work-around will get you up and running while we address this problem on our servers.

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

Swackett 5: WeatherStation Mode

Swackett for macOS features a special WeatherStation Mode as a Dark Mode option. Built for large screens, WeatherStation Mode adds standard weather gauges (as found in Atmospheric™ by Swackett®) to the expanded Swackett IU.  These weather gauges show conditions for the selected location.

*WeatherStation mode requires a Swackett PRO subscription.

Swackett 5: View Ports

Swackett for macOS features multiple viewports to make the most of available screen real estate on all popular Apple Mac, iMac and Macbook computers.

Built for macOS

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.
