App Descriptionswackett 2.0 for iPad
The Visual Weather Report
swackett® is a fun new way to look at the weather. We communicate weather forecasts visually by presenting people symbols (peeps) who always appear appropriately dressed for weather conditions. We convert complex weather data to easily-understood, visual weather reports suitable for people of every age.
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.
