The Visual Weather Report

swackett® is a fun new way to look at the weather. We convert complex weather data to easily-understood, visual weather reports designed for people of every age. Our unique approach is to combine raw weather data (current conditions, radar, and detailed forecasts) with thoughtfully crafted people symbols (called “peeps”) who always appear appropriately dressed for the weather.

If it happens to be cold outside, swackett® peeps appear dressed in winter hats, coats and boots. A hot, sunny day? swackett® peeps appear wearing shorts and sunglasses — and they even remember to bring along drinking water and sunblock. Rain? swackett® peeps appear with rain jackets and an umbrella.

This is a fun, fresh and truly useful weather report experience for people of any age.

    I would love to give this app a five-star rating for its great features and design but the login requirement every couple of days is just annoying. Don't nobody got time for all dat! Lol. I'm trying out a different app bc of it.

    Nice clean, minimal interface design. Love the 'feels like' temperature and the clothing recommendations help me decide what to wear :) Would recommend!

    Use on Mac, iOS and Android. Was a good app but lately all 5 of my devices refuse to show centigrade. Very slow to refresh. Emailed developers twice with no reply. Hence 2 stars - now given up, deleted.
