    "The Visual Weather Report"

    In the end, what's the point of looking at weather forecast? Most of the time is knowing what to dress since that affects what you can do under specific weather conditions. AGLogic's Swackett presents you with the information in a way you can understand.

    In other words, Swackett process raw weather data and returns just the info in an understandable along with a crafted people symbol ("peeps") dressed in accordance with the weather conditions. In addition, you can switch views: forecast summary, peeps, imagery and alerts.

    Check the weather at a glance and know what to dress immediately.

    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.

    Had this app for awhile on my Moto G4+. Now the alerts and radar won't load. Sent and email and they said they were updating the hd radar nothing yet. Still don't work! Update, I'm running Nougat 7.0 and the radar doesn't work! Is there no fix or update for this problem with Android. Please get this fixed. I've loved this app in the past but now I'm using other weather apps.
