Swackett Classic includes all the functionality of free version of Swackett® plus some very special extras, including:
• Completely Ad-Free (no ads)
• Select Animated Peeps (falling rain, falling snow, wind , you can see the breath of peeps on cold day, plus lots of extra surprises)
• Gorgeous HD Wallpapers (Weather Photo Backgrounds)

Swackett® is a fun 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.
