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.
