I downloaded this"DEMO" only to find it is in fact an UPGRADE and not as advertised.

Something certainly amiss here.

So, no trial, no review.

After a month of using this application I can say this: It's pretty - gorgeous even - but it simply doesn't do very much.

The weather function? The app shows clouds and it displays the temperature of the city selected on the icon. Atlas? It shows countries on mouseover. Wow.

I like the screensaver it comes with though - looks great.

I love both maps and weather thus this piece of software was very attractive to me. As far as they go, the graphics are very good and the spinning 3D globe with cloud animation is a sight to behold.

However, once you get used to the razzle dazzle, a number short coming become apparent. Both the maps and the weather features are mediocre. The maps don't go any further than satellite view detail. In that regard, as an atlas, your inexpensive print bound Hammond atlas is far far far more useful. The software is an "atlas" in only broadest sense of the word. Mackiev could really raise the level of this product by making it a genuine electronic atlas.

The weather forecasting feature is equally as weak. It provides a USA Today blurbs level of forecasting, the hi / low and a graphic saying "cloudy". It would be much improved if the software provided access to Weather Underground or National Weather Service type of detail. I want to know when the front is expected to hit, how much rain or snow is expected, etc.

Because of these limitations I find myself going to a real atlas on my shelf or to genuine weather websites instead of using this flashy, yet hobbled (in terms of information) piece of software.

Universal Binary? Ha, it doesn't work on my Quad. Too bad, looks neat.
