[prMac.com] Incline Village, Nevada - Xeric Design today is proud to announce the release of EarthDesk 7, a major update to its award-winning, real-time dynamic desktop map. EarthDesk replaces your static desktop with an image of the Earth showing current sun, moon and city illumination, as well as real-time cloud coverage. A data subscription offers additional real-time information including earthquakes and named storms, allowing you to visualize hurricanes and other real-time events on your Macintosh 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).
EarthDesk 7 allows users to purchase a data subscription which offers up to 16 times as much detail in the cloud layer. In addition, this service displays real-time data including worldwide earthquakes, named storms (typhoons, hurricanes, etc.) and the position of the International Space Station.
Major new features introduced in EarthDesk 7:
* Greatly improved support for multiple screens and Retina displays
* Many new positioning options including centering on a specific lat/lon or real-time data such as the location of the most recent earthquake
* City labels now support multiple colors and different screens can show different sets of data
* All new city database with support for adding, editing and removing of cities
* Presets are exportable to easily move configurations between different computers
* And more
* Mac OS X 10.10 or later
Pricing and Availability:
Single user copies may be purchased for $24.99 (USD). Upgrades are available for $12.99 for licensed users of version 5 and 6.
