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.

"Looks visually UGLY unless UPAY MORE FOR Hi-Res Clouds!"

June 18, 2012  |  By redmarble

 |  Version: EarthDesk 5.8.5

Pros

Easy to install.

Cons

NOW, need to pay more for "Hi-Res" clouds! (This used to be free until recent update!)

Looks visually HORRIBLE unless you PAY MORE for the hi-resolution clouds.

Low-res clouds are now included with the price of the app.

Summary

I bought this app for its visually appealing look. Hi-res clouds were included with the paid app. UNFORTUNATELY, low-resolution clouds are included and you WILL NEED to PAY MORE for Hi-Res clouds!

Without Hi-Res clouds, this app now looks HORRIBLE!!
