(with some very special Xtras)


swackett X for mac: os X lion savvy

  • **The #1 weather app for the Mac in 67 countries, with more than 1 million users worldwide and over 2,500 5-star ratings.
  • **swackett X named a “Best of Mac App Store 2011” app!

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.
