The Swackett Weather App is a Fun & Quirky Way of Reading the Forecast

Add some fun to reading the weather outside with the cartoon Swackett Weather App, a very fresh and fun new way of getting the day's temperature.

The geeky term "swackett" stands for "sweater, jacket or coat." Specific letters from these three terms are combined into one word to represent the name of this quirky app. Swackett literally provides a whole new way of looking at the weather in its fun, cartoon visualization. Using toon characters called "peeps," which are outfitted according to how it feels outside, the illustrations form a detailed forecast for the day. Winter hats, coats and boots, or shorts and sunglasses tell you whether it's hot or cold out. You can add even more pizzazz by substituting the standard characters with pop-culture cartoons.

No matter how bad the weather is outside, the whimsical Swackett Weather App will still bring a smile to your face.
