Here’s a Mac bundle from ProductiveMacsÂ that should appeal to Mac users who want to get stuff done. For $29.99, you get 9 mac apps, the total value of which is $239. The most notable from the lot include the truly handy and popularÂ TextExpander (expand custom keyboard shortcuts into often-used text and images), Path Finder (anÂ award winning file browser and management app for Mac) and TaskPaper (a simple yet effectiveÂ to-do list that lets you createÂ projects, tasks, or notes without all the usual distractions. TaskPaperÂ is also available for the iPhone and iPadÂ for $9.99). I’ve been a long time user of TextExpander and it’s certainly saved me time and typing with all the shortcuts I’ve created on my iMac, be it addresses, urls, common phrases or even chunks of text. This normally goes for $35 alone, so for 5 bucks less you actually get 8 other apps as well.
