The version 2.01 (or 2.1) works for Snow Leopard. Go to the developer's site under downloads.

Developer site has a download for a snow leopard version (same version number, apparently), but little info otherwise on the update. Before buying, it would be nice to know more about the development state, since the last version update was back in 2007. The developer sites Freefall page has a "manual" link to the manual for version 1 of Freefall, which doesn't inspire much confidence.

I bought this application just so I could have the screensaver feature. I still have a free version of the screensaver (PPC only) running on a G3 iBook, got it through my .Mac membership some years ago. I have really missed it on my Intel Macs. Absolutely my favorite screensaver.

"is this even in active development anymore?"

Shame if it isn't. I got a free (limited?) copy a few years ago (?) with my .mac subscription and the screensaver feature was the best screensaver I ever saw. I'd been hoping it would be released as a Universal binary because I've been running an Intel Mac for the past several months.

Maybe we should email the developer(s) and ask about the further development of this app... I'd like to buy a version that runs on Intel Macs.

Funny. Works absolutely fine on my machine. Must definitely be a problem with the software, though. Couldn't be a problem with you. No question.

Freefall puts the wonders of satellite exploration at your fingertips, simulating the flight path of more than 650 actual satellites Global Positioning Systems, GOES, NOAA and other unclassified orbiters used by amateur radio stations, weather services, search and rescue teams and more.

Rich with simulated space views of earth and its orbiters, Freefall is a stand-alone satellite discovery and exploration application that utilizes the power of Mac OS X to seamlessly transition from one perspective to another, soaring over the continents and oceans of the world, using political and coastline data from the United Nations and earth imagery from NASA.

The 3-D viewer interacts directly with the simulator, letting you control dozens of preferences and perspectives. Create and save your own unique simulation experiences or choose from one of 8 built-in simulations, then save your journey as a screensaver.

Turn any geographic location into a ground link, watch satellites fly by each location. Choose from a database of over 28,000 cities or define your own using latitude and longitude.

See detailed information about each satellite including altitude, speed, coordinates, launch data, and mission background. All satellite data can be automatically updated daily via the Internet. Purchase includes a one-year subscription to the cloud-cover data service. Music playback feature requires a current version of iTunes or QuickTime. Real-time predictions require a registered Space-Track account (free).
