Stop using that static, unchanging picture on your desktop, and put on a dynamic image of the earth that updates as the world turns!

  • Updated DST rules for USA/Canada, Western Australia, Uruguay, Kazakhstan, Tunisia
  • Added support for 1280x800 and more...

No problem w/h Rosetta??

Pity that Rosetta keeps a lot of computer resources (RAM, processor cycles, etc...) just for him(her? :-)

My opinion is I like the idea of the app but I don't like a lazy developer who has not respect for his possible customers. What is the problem of using the new dev tools for assembling the app when building it?
They are free.

I reject this behave.

HWLDP (They really need to come up with a simpler name), is quite a bit nicer than OSXPlanet, the maps are higher quality and there is time zone info as well. It does feel a bit old with the white prefs window. OSXPlanet does have clouds... hopefully HWLDP and EarthDesk will get clouds too as they have nicer maps overall.

I concur. OSXPlanet. Way better and free. I just donated to Gabriel, the developer. You should do the same if you like it and use it.

I have made my choice : OSXPlanet is great ; don't forget you can donate via PayPal. The developper is a 14 years old boy.

Not worth $20!

Instad, go for a free version that is essentially the same. OSXplanet can be found on this site, and it is FREE!!

Love the App. As a Geochron owner for many years, this is right down my ally. However, developer should consider a price reduction. Looks great on a 23" Cinema display.

Not worth the money. I change desktop more often than changing my underwear (at least for me). I'd rather to pay $25 for DragThing and $15 for DockIt. $25 for the world map??? That's a tank of gas.

It's OK. It's cool to look at but unless you really need to do something that requires you to know the position of the earth, It's not worth $20.
