Editors' Review

by   / October 22, 2012

Swackett is a weather app. Sounds exciting, huh? But surprisingly, Swackett does a great job at relaying what other sites don't really make clear, which is what the weather really will be like. Instead of complex weather data and a radar image, Swackett produces a condensed version with pictographs and a simple layout that gives you the weather forecast at a glance.

Swackett's simple interface gives you a picture of what the weather will be like using a simple image (for a hot day you see two cartoon figures dressed with hats and light clothes, holding suntan lotion and water) and there are color-coded tabs on either side, showing the current and future forecasts. Weather junkies can access the raw data behind the images, which Swackett downloads from various sites and analyzes, but the simplicity of the presentation is what most users will like.

We didn't really expect to get hooked on Swackett, but we did. We ended up checking it almost every day for the forecast as part of our morning routine. Swackett is a fun app and one you should try if you want an alternative to stuffy weather forecasters.
