The Visual Weather Report
We’re different! Unlike other weather apps that show current weather conditions — something you can get by looking out the window — Swackett® shows you weather conditions for your entire day at a glance (current weather conditions are also available with a single click or tap). If it’s sunny out right now but Swackett is showing rain — you best take an umbrella with you — because rain for in the forecast.
With Swackett you'll know if you need a sweater, jacket or coat today, tonight or tomorrow — with a glance. You’ll know if you'll want to have an umbrella handy today — or if weather conditions are just right for your dog to enjoy a walk with you. All of this information is available with a casual glance at Swackett’s visual weather report.
Swackett is deep weather tech. All Swackett apps feature AccuWeather radar imagery (where available), National Weather Service watches and warnings sent via push notification, 5-day forecasts, lifestyle indices, weather history and more.
Millions of people have downloaded Swackett apps. We use crowdsourcing to cultivate fashion choices for our avatars — and host a thriving community at swackett.com. Upload your style ideas and win free cool stuff every day.
Swackett — a fun new way to look at the weather — and a perfect weather-pairing every time.
Under the Hood
Swackett apps 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.

Ads in paid app
I paid $2.99 for this app a few years ago and thought it was worth it. But then they redesigned it and I stopped using it. I downloaded it again to give it another try and it's full of ads! I clicked "restore purchases" but since I never actually paid for ad removal, I'm stuck with the ads unless I pay more money to have them removed from an app I bought that was ad-free. No, thanks. I wouldn't do that even if the forecast were accurate, which it isn't. It's telling me that it's 70F and sunny right now when actually it's pouring down rain and the temp is hovering around 50F.
APP CRASHES AFTER LATEST UPDATE
This app used to be a lifesaver when I was traveling and needed to pack for a weekend abroad. But now, whenever I open the app it crashes immediately. I see from other reviewers that I am not the only one this has happened to. I deleted it, and won't reinstall it until a new update is released that fixes the bug. I also sent a request to Swackett to have it fixed and haven't heard from them yet.
Great app but keeps crashing right after opening.
I've been using this app for a long time- even had it on my mac before it became a phone app. I'm very disappointed that the bugs haven't been fixed since it was last updated- it keeps crashing right after it opens. Please fix!!!!
