Orbit is a spectacular virtual earth, a weather app and a world clock in one. With Orbit, you have the world in your pocket! Explore our beautiful planet in magnificent, live 3D while it slowly spins through space. Fly around the earth in your own virtual satellite, watch the sun rise and set, see the city lights come on at night!.

Orbit is great fun to play with, but it is much more than a toy. It gives you instant access to the time and weather of over 137.000 major cities worldwide, including a detailed 10-day forecast. Show a world clock of all your favorite cities, then go there with a simple tap on the screen.

NASA and NOAA satellite images are used to show live cloud cover. Adjust the cloud layer to get a better view of the geography. You can even zoom in to take a closer look and see the mountains cast a shadow at sunset.
