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.

swackett for iPhone adds mobility to swackett: you can now check the weather wherever you happen to be. And swackett for iPhone adds new Smart Slots that show a variety of content ranging from other family members to suggested activities (based on current weather conditions). You’ve got to try it!

swackett® is available for free (supported via mobile ads), but you can turn ads off via an in-app purchase.
