So you’re thinking about buying a Mac app or two for your iMac/Macbook in the coming days. But before you do, you could potentially save yourself some money by checking out some of the Mac Bundles being offered at this time. For instance, with the MacUpdate Bundle, you get Parallels 8 Desktop ($79.99 on its own) and 9 other great Mac apps for just $49.99. Or the MacLegion Bundle for the same price and number of apps, which includes Roxio Toast 11 Titanium, Launcher and others. Then there’s the Pick a Bundle (choose 10 apps you want) we covered previously. There are several more featured in this roundup we’ve put together, so take a look within and see if there’s a bundle that tickles your fancy.
Users looking to get more out of their iMacs and Macbooks will find plenty to love about the Lifehack Mac Bundle, where 9 handy Mac apps are now on sale for just $49.99 (a $310 retail value). Apps that are part of this bundle include Mac Pilot 5 (easily enable and disable hundreds of hidden features in Mac OS X, among other things), TechTool Pro 6 (complete diagnostic checks, drive repair and data recovery) and one of my favorites, TextExpander 4 (create custom keyboard shortcuts for “expanding” user-defined text). To take advantage of this great bundle, head over to Stacksocial (deal ends in 18 days) to add some or all of these apps to your desktop workflow. And if you’re feeling lucky, several Giveaways are still ongoing, including 2 iPad minis, a Dropbox Pro account for life and The Omni Group bundle.
We’ve covered a number of Mac Bundles in the past, and this is first time I can recall that it’s being given away absolutely for free. Held over at Stacksocial, there are 8 Mac apps found in the bundle and they include Ondesoft Screen Capture ($30), ClipBuddy ($30, a great tool that saves all the clips you make) and Image Smith ($16). The only thing that’s required is for you to have a free Stacksocial account, and then Like/Share it either via Facebook or Twitter. The total value of the Mac Freebie Bundle is $117, and there should be at the very least an app or two that you’ll find useful.
The giveaway ends in 14 days, on Jan 30th. A break down of all apps included after the gap.
