Magnificent! Fascinating! - Living Earth is one of the most beautiful, fascinating applications/apps on all my Apple devices. I can't imagine the computing power required to update all the celestial, meteorological and earthly items in real time. As a former Navy pilot who marvels at the wondrous things that make up planet Earth, I feel like I'm in orbit watching it all unfold below.

Review by unhappy hank

DON'T GET It! - I installed yesterday on an iMac, OS 10.6.8 When the earth appears on my desktop (which is rare) it's often pixellated. And this thing freezes my computer every time it runs. The only way out is the power button

Review by West coast crush

Like a long lost friend, returned! :-) - I was finally reunited with my long lost friend, but MAN, has it gotten WAY BETTER over time with the help of Radiant Labs! Apps like this are very unique, particularly for those who truly appreciate all the beauty of space. I used to have one of those spinning earth apps. I bought it for ~ $45 back in … eh, well, very way back, like when I still used a windows machine, and yes, that far back. It app rotated, it showed countries, but that was about it, and I’m sure it probably still sits spinning in some cubicle somewhere, by someone who loves the 90’s. Then, a wonderful app called xQuake came along on Mac - and I absolutely loved it. It had a spinning earth map, PLUS earthquake information and weather. I don’t remember it having a full screensaver but to watch it was spectacular … and then it was discontinued. :-( Then, THIS app came along, and I've been struck with the visual appeal and simplicity of this app. The visual artistry, attention to detail, and software quality level that this app come together in this app in a fantastic visual treat and ease of use. A full nod to the people at Radiant Labs. You guys really did a fantastic job with this app. It’s limited, agreeably, but what works, works amazingly well, and that’s what separates good apps from great apps in my book. Like I said, I finally found an old friend again and I’m very glad it’s available on the most beautiful displays in the world (mac screens). :-)

Living Earth App - I’ve been looking for a Weather App that was really good and when I read the reviews on this I knew that this App was for me. I wanted up to date weather and the other apps I had before were not giving me the right readings for the weather. So I saw this, got it and now I like it very much. The only thing I wish it had a place to show the radar of the weather conditions where you live but overall I’m glad that I have this now. I’m happy with it. Maybe some time in the future you guys can be able to add radar to this app to see what the conditions are in your area. Thank you for making a great App.

It’s Awesome - Living Earth is way too cool. This is the desktop I’ve wanted ever since I got my first Mac, back in 1985. Our wonderful planet, in realtime—it’s perfect to remind a geek like myself that there’s a great big world out there.

Review by Telchure

Beautiful view of Earth but lacks features - The view of Earth and it’s weather patterns is spectacular which I would give it 5 stars (right up there with OSXPlanet). Also the Weather and time widget is small and nicely placed. The only con I can see is it doesn’t have in apps purchases for Earth quakes, Hurricanes and Sun and Moon locations (aka. Earthdesk). I think Earthdesk is very good with all the features but it lack the stunning view of Living Earth or OSXPlanet. Also if you like this you should check out Earth 3D specially on your TV monitor using AirPlay (located under Preferences-Displays).
