More like the Wall Maps of the World and Globes of yesteryear

Earth 3D is a great addition to any mac where you need a motivator to keep a clean desktop so you can watch the earth revolve before your very eyes. I’ve learned so much more about the world’s geography with this app.

Graphics look like a Sid Meir Game Map. The city icons are cute, but I wish you could toggle specific ones on and off. Maybe allow folks to build city models you can download for your favorite hometown.

I ended up buying the weather pak $2.99 which was marginally helpful. It adds cloud and moon icons along with the current temp.
The political map pak purchase was great $1.99. It makes the world look like a wall map with brightly colored countries.
I didn’t go for the $3.99 photos and info pak because it would be easy to just use the web for this level of info.

I would love to see an option for a true view of the world as high res retina satellite imagery with real cloud cover and daylight/darkness added.

I was kind of hoping that this app would also show up in System Preferences > Desktops & Screensavers rather than being its own standalone app only thing.

Better and Better

Each update, each version gets better and better. The maps are absolutely riveting. It is really great fun to see the world from different angles - quitre challenging sometimes to work out where in the world we are flying over.

Great Graphics, CPU hog, Needs newer computer

Pros:
Fantastic Graphics - looks stunning on double monitors
Great addition is the star field and moving objects like planes and ships.
Outstanding screen saver mode with music
Put it on your large Flat screen TV is awesome!
Cons:
On my 2.4Ghz Core 2 duo MacBook Pro it is a CPU hog.
CPU meter show 5x CPU usage,
Temps go from 117 to 220F. Hot enough to burn your lap.
Don’t use on battery - drains it fast.

Wish List: Superimposed Realtime cloud map (Like OSX Planet)
Superimposed new Earthquake epicenters
Swich to turn on true sun light-Day and dark night areas.
