Xeric Design Releases EarthDesk 4.1
Xeric Design, Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of EarthDesk 4.1, its
award-winning, real-time dynamic desktop map, for Macintosh OS X.
EarthDesk 4.1 adds a new map option for a natural view of the Earth from
space and is fully compatible with Leopard (and Tiger).
EarthDesk replaces your static desktop with an image of the Earth showing
current sun, moon and city illumination, as well as real-time global cloud
coverage, allowing you to track hurricanes and other weather systems on
your Macintosh or Windows desktop.
The software operates silently in the background, keeping your desktop
updated while you work. Unlike a screen saver, which only appears when your
system is idle, EarthDesk’s dynamic desktop is continuously displayed as
your desktop background (and optionally as a screen saver).
New in version 4.1:
– Addition of Natural map option, an unretouched satellite view.
– Fully compatible with Leopard (OS X 10.5).
– Interface change to allow greater control from the EarthDesk menu item.
– Several minor bug fixes.
EarthDesk is the only application of its kind to support accurate
moonlight, multiple monitors and eleven different map projections, as well
as political, enhanced satellite and natural views.
EarthDesk requires Mac OS X 10.4 or newer. Single user copies may be
purchased online for $23.95. Upgrades are available for $11.95.
