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.

IMac Swackett Update
Don’t get me wrong, this is a good app; however with the last update it now is only refreshing every 20 to 30 minutes. Trying to make decisions during weather extremes is impossible as the information is usually outdated as soon as it is posted to the screen. A faster refresh rate would be appreciated, maybe every 5 minutes vice 30 minutes. Even when you key the manual refresh rate it will not change the information for 20 to 30 minutes. Please fix this or send me the information on how I can. Thank you very much.
Good but distracting
I've been using this app for three years now.
The easter eggs are cute, but when I log onto this application I want to see the kind of thing I should be wearing and that is it. I have to reload the weather so I can get an accurate picture of what I should be wearing.
I really like this app- but it frustrates me to no end sometimes.
It's nice when they give you the outlook, but I'd like to see if hour by hour, it's hard especially in the morning when the temp changes.
Both Fun and Effective
I love Swackett! It is, as my title states, fun and effective. Not only does it accuratly tell you the weather, but what to wear in order to be the most comfortable. Unlke most weather apps, Swackett also gives you easy access to the general weather country wide, as well as any alarming or emergency news involving the weather. This app is easy to use and enjoyable to look at! If you need a weather app, this one is quite amazing.
