MacHeist 3 bundle expected to be worth over $900

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.

    by the time this was published on MacNN, WireTap Studio has been unlocked. the next milestone is at $400,000 raised for charities--and at the rate at which bundles are getting sold right now, it'll very likely reach that goal by week's end (it's currently at $124K).

    a very nice bundle this year--lots to get excited about. for those who don't have $700 to drop on Photoshop, Acorn is a great alternative and normally runs $50 alone. even if you don't think you'll use the other apps much, consider this a $10 savings on Acorn with much, much more thrown in for free. PhoneView looks like it could become indispensable for me, and i'd been keeping my eye on iSale for a while now.

    during the purchase process, you get the option to "gift" applications to someone else as well as select one particular charity to donate to (or spread evenly over all). some very nice charities will be benefitting from this.

    If you are a MacHeist member and have been following and completing the various puzzle-based missions, up to $8 additional discount was available, reducing the bundle price to a mere $31 plus additional software rewards for completing the various tasks!

    Nice bundle

    I hope there not complaining about the $1 apps for the iPhone, have a good central selling point like the appstore and make it up in volume.
