orbit
Orbit got an update with some new features. This update brings it to v1.1. Orbit lets you see the planet in 3D, check out the weather and the sunrise/sunset across the globe plus more.

What’s in the update?
Our astronauts have installed new satellite optics, giving you a 4x sharper image of the planet. We have also enhanced way we draw the earth with some advanced illumination techniques and Hollywood special effects. You can almost feel the ridges of the mountains, the sand of the deserts and the leaves in the rainforests under your finger. The ice in Greenland looks almost good enough to eat
We’ve added 136.000 more cities, including local forecasts and current conditions where available. Tap the search button and enter part of the location name. Then tap the “Search Online” button. Long place names are handled more intelligently too, and we also search alternate and localized spellings
Orbit now has an active frame (window cover) that displays the weather and time for the currently selected location. It updates automatically, and we’ve made sure your battery is used as economically as possible

The adjustment panel has had a redesign with funky new rotary controls – much easier for 1-handed operation
Some users were a little confused by the retrograde orbit of our satellite, thinking the earth was spinning the wrong way. We made the orbit configurable via the Settings screen
