"Cloud overlay is NOT real time. See disclaimer below."

February 21, 2016  |  By sroconnell

2016-02-21 11:07:04  |  By sroconnell

 |  Version: Living Earth Desktop 7.2.3

Pros

4. CLOUD IMAGES ARE PROVIDED BY EXTERNAL SERVERS THAT WE DO NOT CONTROL. WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE QUALITY, AVAILABILITY OR ACCESSIBLITY OF CLOUD IMAGES. IF FOR ANY REASON, THE QUALITY OF IMAGES IS NOT GOOD OR CLOUD IMAGES ARE NOT AVAILABLE OR ACCESSIBLE, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER.

Cons

Cloud overlay is one of several STOCK IMAGES. I've had this program for several years and the images are ALWAYS the same - they do not correlate to real time satellite info. The EULA explicits absolves gimmegoody of any responsibility - see above

Summary

The stock image of the cloud overlay gives the impression of current satellite visible info, but THERE IS NO REAL TIME SATELLITE IMAGERY AS IMPLIED.

I paid $25 several years ago; I'm the idiot

my version is 7.4.2

Updated on Feb 28, 2016

to clarify:
95% of the time this program applies the SAME cloud overlay image - over a more than 5 year period the same image is applied. Occasionally, less than 5% of the time, a different image pops up that quickly disappears and is replaced by the image that i've been looking at for 5 years - laughable.
Desktop Earth (Anka.me) is one that I've just downloaded (for FREE) and seems to show real time clouds. I am not affiliated with Desktop Earth in any way.

"Maybe I'm an idiot"

 |  Version: Living Earth Desktop 7.2.3

Pros

Cool picturs

Cons

It doesn't reflect correct time or date and very difficult to figure out how to correct it. Hitting reset doesn't fix the problem. Maybe I'm just not techie enough to figure it out

Summary

No a fan but would like to be
