Takes over the Mac - there’s no way to quit - This thing takes over your Mac. After I launched the app it worked fine. But when I tried to quit it, I couldn’t turn it off. In the ‘Force Quit’ window it doesn’t show up. It doesn’t appear in the desktop screen saver window. There is no icon in the dock. No app controls whatsoever. When I tired to drag the App to the trash it wouldn’t let me because it “was in use”. I finally had to to drag all the contents from from the OS into the trash and reboot my Mac to turn this thing off. This is ridiculous. There is no QUIT button? I just trashed the whole thing.

Breathtaking - Just so beautiful, it is a wonder how someone could take and process all of the wonderful pictures that we would not be able to see or take ourselves from the perspective of so few

Love the Rotatoing Earth - This app is amazing!! I just love it. The Earth rotating on my dest top is very intriguing, it appears like what the space shuttle orbiting Earth wouls see as the Earth rotates. As an Astronomy Nerd, this just fits the bill for me in having the Earth rotate on my computer screen. I have a macbook pro, and it looks very nice. You will not be dissapointed.

Earth 3D Light... - I downloaded this in anticipation of finding a new "ScreenSaver" for my computer. Although the imagery is great, it's not a screensaver that can be used AS a screensaver. The only way that it can be used AS a SCREENSAVER, is if the app is active. It cannot be imported, and/or installed into my computer system, software for the screensaver. This same observation also goes for the "Lost Watch 3D App." Neither of them are screensavers even though they are listed and claimed as screensavers. Disappointing, and I uninstalled and deleted both programs... Also, to get other features, you are expected to pay for them. All you get is a basic program that really amounts to nothing much at all. This is crap!

Great app! - This is a fun idea. It simulates the feeling of begin in a space shuttle. The lite version is actually better for me because high up in space, you can’t see that much detail, which makes the experience even more real. (the pro version has buildings and wheather on it-supposedly for functional use) You can (pretend) travel over the Earth at a leisurely speed without the app getting unstable or stuck. The best thing I like about it, though, is that it is totally unobtrusive. Truly, it only changes your home screen, nothing else. So you can have a look at the wallpaper when you want to and even make it a screensaver! (that’s really nice too) Great, if you could add higher definition to the wallpaper, would be a superb app!
