One of the best things about using a Mac is the quality of applications that are being written for it by the development community. Nowhere is it more apparent than with the iPhone, with over 50,000 applications that have been written in the last year.
Mac Software Bundles
Over the last year, I’ve taken advantage of several bundle sales for Mac software. With these bundles, you can buy a whole bunch of applications for one low price, which is typically the price you would pay for one of these apps, and usually much less than the price of some of the apps that are included.
After taking advantage of three bundle sales over the last year, I now own dozens of handy applications for my Mac. The reality of the situation is that I only use a few of them, but the ones that I do use, I find indispensable. Some of them I use occasionally, but it is so great to know that if there is anything I need to do on my Mac, I can do it. Here’s some of the kinds of apps I’ve received as part of bundles:
- Sound editing (Amadeus Pro)
- Photo editing (Pixelmator, Graphic Converter, Acorn)
- CSS Editing (CSSEdit, Esspresso)
- FTP (Fetch)
- Repair and diagnosis utilities
- Handy tools
- ... and much more
The Current MacUpdate Bundle
I’m about to purchase this one because it’s undeniably valuable. Parallels Desktop alone is worth $80. I have version 3 and use it all the time. The whole suite of tools for saving DVD movies to your Mac is another big win.
I also signed up as a promoter of the bundle so I can get some benefit from telling all my friends and family to buy it! Click the image below to check out the bundle and purchase it!
There’s only 3 days left in the huge MU Bundle, so grab it before June 12th!
