Update: So much for my powers of prognostication. The requisite 5,999 bundles have been sold and all 10 applications are now included bringing the retail value of this bundle up to $433.82. The promotion has been extended for 3 more days so you still have time to nab a great deal for you Mac if you're so inclined.
I'm a sucker for these bundle promotions. I admit it. Last year's MacHeist bundle got me and so did the current (and about to end) MacUpdate promotion. This one's quite a nice deal if you're looking for an ecelectic but very useful collection of Mac applications and utilities at a significant discount. The bundle includes:
- Little Snitch: a firewall enhancement to monitor and restrict outbound connections.
- GraphicConverter: A legendary utility that converts between downs of graphic file formats and provides tools for lightweight image correction and editing.
- Fetch: Another legendary utility – this one for FTP and SFTP file transfers.
- iWOW: an iTunes add-in that significantly improves the quality of audio output on your Mac.
- GarageSale: an eBay auction builder and manager.
- Cocktail: a maintenance utility that provides a graphic front-end to a number of *NIX command-line utilities.
- ProfCast: a presentation recorder that allows you to integrate PowerPoint and Keynote slides into your podcasts.
- Amadeus Pro: a powerful audio editor.
and, if sales targets are hit, Intaglio (a vector drawing program) and TechTool Pro (a maintenance and repair suite for the Mac). The targets were revised downwards yesterday to make it possible for these last two apps to get unlocked. If I had to bet, I'd say Intaglio is a shoo-in but TechTool Pro looks like a bit of a stretch.
The bundle costs $49.99. Retail value (as of now with the core apps and Little Snitch having been unlocked) is $244.83. As of the time I'm posting this, there's about 15 hours left on the promo.
