Ratings and Reviews

Earthlapsea - 5 Stars At Least


I was impressed when these folks released Magic Windows, which just got better and better with each update, and everyone I showed it to agreed.

But they've outdone themselves with the release of Earthlapse. Visually stunning, especially on an iPad3 retina screen. Take-your-breath-away time lapse video from the space station like you've never seen before, includimg aurora borealis from the top down. Controls aren't yet as feature rich as Magic Windows, but for a first cut, well done Jetson Creative.

How long till we can add additional packs?

Earth lapse


Totally stunning, beautiful....words fail me! Magic Window, the partner app, is a joy. To hook up the iPad to a flat screen TV, put on the surround sound, and experience the world's achingly wondrous natural beauty from your armchair after a hard day's grind at work....enchantment extraordinaire!! Can't thank the app development team enough.



The scenes are incredible...just not enough of them.What about a sunrise or sunset view from the iss? How about the view of a hurricane or tropical storm from the iss perspective?
