The Visual Weather Report
swackett® is a whole 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.

Solid app but...
I emailed the developed twice about the teeny tiny 8 point text used for the storm warnings.
Minutes after I emailed a product manager emailed back saying, wow, that really is small. That's no big deal we can change it right away, Nothing happened. So I replied to his reply months later, asking what happened with this change. No response.
My conclusion: Swackett X app features a solid functionality and an unresponsive developer.
Swackett Servers Stopped Working
Nice, fun little app, until last week when Swackett turned off their servers - the app only occasionaly connects at this time. You might want to wait until they either get things working, or go out of business...
Love this app
Works and looks great!
I use it everyday. It’s one of my favorite apps.
