New! A classic, hand-crafted combination flashlight and weather observation app created by swackett.
Most iPhone users carry both a flashlight app and a weather app on their phone; swackett now delivers both in a single app with Flashometer.
Flashometer 100 is a bright, instant-on flashlight combined with the famous swackett visual weather report. Peeps are included at no extra charge. A retro 1950′s-era battery gauge spins up whenever the flashlight is illuminated, giving this app the look and feel of a vintage mechanical instrument.
Replicating the look and feel of a mechanical device in every detail, Flashometer’s vintage gauges and dials are faithfully reproduced in stunning high resolution. Special attention is paid to mechanical functionality — with the gauge needles even responding to subtle bumps and inertia on iPhone 4 and newer devices.
And of course, Flashometer is designed specifically for retina display.
A True swackett App
Brought to you by the design team behind swackett, Flashometer 100 also features the famous swackett peeps — who always appear dressed appropriately for the weather. swackett user accounts are fully supported: including your custom locations, temperature and language preferences, and your purchased swackett editions. Naturally, Flashometer 100 sports its very own brand of swackett Easter Eggs.
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 debuted in the Mac App Store on January 6th, 2011. Today more than 1.2 million unique users turn to swackett for their daily weather forecast.
