Beat the Cold With the Swackett Weather-Clothing Web App

It looks cold outside, but exactly how cold is it? Should you pack the hat and mittens, or are they just going to get in the way when the sun comes out later in the afternoon? With the help of the visual weather report service provided by Swackett, you'll always be perfectly prepared.

Swackett stands for "Sweater, Jacket or Coat" and is a cool visual weather report created by AGLogic. Two figures appear on the site dressed in weather-appropriate clothing, so you're always prepared for the day's meteorological forecast.

The site relies on data by AccuWeather, "the World's Weather Authority," and provides "current conditions and forecasts for every zip code in America, and all major cities worldwide."

Its design is what sets it apart from other dress-related weather reports; the "peeps" are never the same two days in a row, sometimes appearing with funny comments or cultural easter eggs like Luke Skywalker riding a Tauntaun.

For a few extra bucks, you can get themed editions with different clothing and commentary, like the 1950s, British Invasion and la edición de américa latina. Swackett is also available for businesses and schools to license and broadcast, and they offer customized editions.

Swackett can be accessed via any web browser, and is also currently available on Mac Apps and other iDevices.

There are a lot of weather sites out there; how does Swackett compare?
