I get a weird error when I try to download earthscape:

"This item is being modified. Please try again later."

Anyone else getting this?

I just got it to work from the mobile app store. Odd that it doesn't seem to work from iTunes...

Earthscape doesn't seem to be working very well for me. It wont load the maps at any resolution higher then the basic one, so everything is just a blurry mess. I'm on a wifi connection too so i don't get what the problem is. I tried a restart as well. Anyone else have this problem?

I had the same problem even on my wifi connection. I read their support page, which suggested rebooting the iPhone. This worked for me, and cleared the images right up. Still a little slow loading though, and honestly, I am less than impressed with the app. It is slightly fun, and has some cool features like photos, wikipedia references, but that's really all it has, and I guess I got bored of it too quickly. Hey, no complaints though the price was right. After trying it for free, I can decisively coclude that I would not have paid $9.99 or even $4.99 for this particular app. That is my personal preference, though, because it is still a very well done app I suppose.

It started working correctly on the 2nd restart. Strange.

It did end up not being as cool as i thought it would be, so i'm glad i was able to try it for free. The fact that you can't manually look up a location seems like a major flaw, and the 3D view is kind of unimpressive unless your looking at an extremely mountainous area.

Air Sharing looks cool and is free for "two weeks." I don't know when that ends. After that it'll be $6.99

i think in a few more days it will end, Sept 8th + 14 free days is Sept 22nd

Good Find,

Its a powerful app, I use it for school to view all the teachers lectures, pdf's and powerpoints

and as for Earthscape, I only used it that one time, it loaded okay, googlemaps loads a lot faster and does almost the same thing...still its not bad for being free right now
