By Xeric Design, Ltd.

EarthDesk is a map-lover's dream and a stunning replacement for your static desktop picture. Imagine gazing out the window of an orbiting spaceship. That's EarthDesk.

EarthDesk replaces your Macintosh desktop picture with a crisp, real-time dynamic image of our planet, continuously updating in the background while you work. The application uses current satellite weather data to display global cloud coverage with transparency and moonlight reflection as well as accurate sun, moon and city lighting.

• Choose from four beautiful high-resolution maps.
• Display real time lighting... sunlight, moonlight and city lights.
• View the world with twelve map projections including a brilliant globe.
• Track weather patterns... global cloud coverage updates every 3 hours.
• Center the map on thousands of cities worldwide.
• Use all your screens with full multiple monitor support.

EarthDesk can be installed on systems with multiple monitors. Each Macintosh desktop is independently configurable so that different maps can be shown on different screens... or you may choose to display map images only on certain monitors. Finally, the image can span all your screens, displaying a large, seamless map.

EarthDesk's wide variety of map projections and graphic styles give you complete control over the maps on your desktop. With so many options at your fingertips, gazing at the Earth from space has never been easier or more fun!

Data Subscriptions

An optional auto-renewing data subscription is available for 3, 6 and 12 month periods starting at $3.99. Data subscriptions include high-resolution cloud data (16 times more detail than standard cloud images) as well as near real-time earthquake, tropical storm and International Space Station tracking. If you purchase a data subscription, it will be billed through your iTunes account and automatically renew until cancelled.

Comments and Ratings for EarthDesk

After purchase on Appple’s App store you will have to call vender (7.0.3)

Once I got it working witht the fast help of the company that makes this, Xeric Design, Inc., It is a beautiful desktop walll paper that updates continually, I also purchased the data update so I can see clouds and storms in just about real time. There is a problem with Apple. In the app store version it doesn’t allow screen saver mode. When I contacted Xerric Design they quickly responded and showed me a work around. Other hight quality moving desktop wall papers and screen savers had had trouble with Apple. So I put the blame on Apple. There are many configurations. I love how I can label as many cities as I want. I can even watch where the Space Lab is in real time. I used it on my iMac 5K and the screen just pops with crisp color (adjustable) and it works very well on my MacBook Pro. The reason for 4 stars is because Apple has caused trouble, no the Xeric Design, Inc. company (they get 5 stars for their product and quick response.

Really cool app, great support (7.0.3)

I’m actually running v 7.1 of this app, slightly newer than the one in the app store. Lots of fun having this thing sit on your desktop or as a screen saver. Esy to configure, a surprising number of options. I also like that it can be configured for one monitor but not the other. I had some problems initially getting it to run correctly but the tech support was speedy and awesome.
