great, except...

Blue Pine

Gorgeous app. I was enchanted by the beauty of the globe. I've tried all the settings and especially love viewing with "Earth" in "Hi Res" and "Sky" in "Long Exposure" and "Celestial Sphere."

But what undercut my joy with all the amazing aspects of this app, was the awful, pulsing target for your location. That horrible thing takes up at least 20% of the globe. And it won't stop PULSING. It absolutely ruins all the hard work they put into making everything else both functional and beautiful.

May I suggest that they use a SMALL, pale blue dot to show where you are.

The Living Earth app does that, and the pale blue dot is visible in clouds, in the day, on the night side, all the time. I like to cycle through a dozen locations around the earth, and the pale blue dot shows up in all those locations under all circumstances.

That app serves a different purpose than this one, but they both have a globe, and both try to show location.

The pulsing GIGANTIC annoying HUGE set of TARGET circles in this app is the worst possible choice. I CAN'T enjoy the app when my eyes are forced back to that thing every second.

I'll add back the missing star if this gets changed. However, if they don't change it, I'll start subtracting stars from this review after a couple of months, because I can't use my $5 purchase the way it is now.

Hi Blue Pine, There is a way to hide the pulsating position marker: press the Cosmic Watch logo (this is the minimal mode), now make your settings with the gear (bottom left corner) Hope this makes you happy :) If you want to give more feedback contact us on

I love this App — But....


As others have complained the locator dot blinks annoyingly. You cannot shut it off easily or change it. Why is it blinking? Things that blink should be important, requiring attention. Where you are is background once it is set. One might refer to it or change it but the constant reminder is redundant and visually disturbing. Please let users turn it off or change it to something less obtrusive.

Developer Response

Hi. There is a way to disable the position marker: press the Cosmic Watch logo icon (top left corner). That's the minimal mode, it's the best way to start playing with the settings. Enjoy!

Actually more cooler than expected

The more I looked - the more I found. Had to come up for air after a couple of hours of exploring the App (initially only intended a cursory investigation of the App and ended up amazed). Love the creativity (and obvious copious amount of User Centered Design planning which went into the project prior to releasing it to the market).
