MacHeist 3 released
MacHeist has launched MacHeist 3, the third time-limited software sale from the company. The bundle groups numerous apps together at an extreme discount, with early-bird and sales-goal additions of extra software, and a donation of 25 percent of funds towards charity. Big Bang Board Games is being offered to the first 25,000 purchasers as an early-bird option; the current package otherwise consists of iSale ($40), Picturesque ($35), SousChef ($30), World of Goo ($20), PhoneView ($20), LittleSnapper ($40), Acorn ($50) and Kinemac ($300).
WireTap Studio ($70) will be unlocked when charitable donations exceed $100,000; day-one figures are already said to be over $90,000. If a second level is reached BoinxTV ($200) will be added, and a third plateau may see the inclusion of both The Hit List ($70) and Espresso ($80). Details of the future expansions have not been released.
The MacHeist bundle is selling for $40, purchasing -- assuming all 12 apps become available -- a collection worth over $900. The sale ends April 7th at midnight EDT.
