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. This is a fun, fresh and truly useful weather report experience for people of any age.
swackett® does include detailed weather information for the weather junkie (including AccuWeather "real feel" temperatures, humidity, dew point, wind direction and speed, weather timelines, animated satellite and radar imagery) but our forecasts are tailor-made for the time-starved person who needs essential weather information fast.
swackett® weather reports can be viewed by any member of the family, including the very young and very old, those with disabilities — anyone who might be short on time and in need of a quick, easy-to-read weather forecast.
The bottom line: swackett® is the simplest, most easy to understand, most accurate weather forecast available.
swackett® is available for free (supported via Smart Ads). For an ad-free version of swackett, packed with very special Xtras, please see swackett X™. An in-depth feature comparison is available at www.swackett.com/the411
