Version 5.0

May 30, 2018

What’s new version 5? Everything!

Swackett has been re-imagined 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!
