First 10,000 purchasers get 3 free applications

MacUpdate has launched its latest software package, the Holiday Bundle for 2009, which features 11 applications for $50. The third-annual promotion offers a 90 percent savings compared to the retail cost of purchasing each title alone. The first 10,000 purchasers will receive three additional programs including PowerTunes ($20), which organizes and shares multiple iTunes libraries; Holliday DVD Templates ($105), which allows users to design DVD menu themes; and FlagIt ($15), which adds multicolored flags to Apple's Mail.

The bundled software titles, with their original prices, include Pathfinder ($40), a Mac Finder alternative; Socialite ($20), which tracks social networks; and Yep ($40), which organizes documents. Also included is Radio Gaga ($40), an Internet radio recorder featuring over 10,000 stations; Garage Sale ($35), a utility for creating eBay auctions; DragThing ($30), an application launcher; and Speed Download ($25), a tool for managing and accelerating downloads. Rounding out the cast are HealthNut ($20), a calorie and nutrient tracker; PCalc ($19), a fully featured scientific calculator; Machinarium ($20), a puzzle/adventure game; and iRip ($20), which can be used to transfer songs from an iPod to a Mac.

The total cost of the 11 applications would be $310 at retail, while the list price for the 14-title package rises to $450. The promotion began Wednesday and runs through December 23. For customers looking for multiple licenses or buying gift sets, MacUpdate is offering a free bundle for every three bundles purchased.

    Usually these deals are pretty good. Yet there isn't anything in this one that jumps out at me. Well, Yep does, but I got that already in one of the previous deals.

    If someone does not have DragThing yet, I would encourage them to purchase this bundle. I have used that program for 10 years now and have a hard time using Macs without it. It is awesome. I wish Apple would just buy it from the developer and replace the Dock with it.
