It seems like there is a sector of Mac software that can bring out the hidden enthusiast in any of us. There are media player apps, productivity apps, finance apps, and even apps to organize and catalog all of your real-world belongings. Sometimes, however, the most interesting apps are the ones that take an activity that we often don’t think about, and do something completely different. Today, the app in question caters to our inner weather junkie.
Swackett touts itself as “a different kind of weather app,” a category into which it fits quite nicely. Checking the weather before heading out for the day can be quite a time consuming task. When you live in a place where the weather could change at a moments notice, a “Today’s High” isn’t enough to determine what outfit will be appropriate. Swackett aims to remedy the tedium of climate calculation by presenting the day’s weather to you in terms of your wardrobe, rather than simply in degrees.
