Editors' Review

+

A static desktop image, although pretty, often loses its luster in a short time. EarthDesk, with multiple, real-time updated views of Earth, presents the perfect replacement for the stale, static image on your screen. In addition to the stunning views of Earth, the program features numerous options for configuring map images, giving you complete control over the maps on your screen. We like the variety of views and 3D renderings of the globe as seen from space. Maps also can be centered on a particular city. You can watch as the map remains stationary while the sun and moon move about your home location as the center point, for example. EarthDesk's customization options and ease of use make it not only educational, but fun for anyone with an interest in our planet.

"Suspicious"

December 16, 2010  |  By herbincowboyz

 |  Version: EarthDesk 5.5.1

Pros

Can't say I have one.

Cons

I like the person who said they did not like the way it acted like a virus, found the way this could not just be trashed was a little suspicious. Had to go to System Preferences... and find it in Other.. and then delete it.

Summary

I would like to read more postings on this product, as my security system and the Mac security system found this product a bit suspicious.

Pros

I cannot write anything good this time

Cons

I downloaded for a try, then tried to trash it but it keeps popping as desktop background and the folder never gets deleted. It has done something to the system, I don't know what it is. I would appreciate if somebody could help me with this.

Summary
