Toast 10 Titanium is headliner software in bundle
MacUpdate launches 10-title bundle of software for $50. Total cost would be $400, and two extra titles are available for early buyers.
MacUpdate has launched its latest highly discounted software bundle, with Toast 10 disk-burning software headlining the sale. The two-week promotion offers 10 Mac applications for $50. It starts today and runs through September 22. The sale includes 10 software titles, including Toast, and has two additional titles for early buyers -- the first 10,000 purchasers get two additional applications for free. Day one of the sale already has over 3,000 purchases.
The headliner, Toast Titanium 10 --$100-- burns DVDs, CDs and Blu-rays. Blu-ray burning is a rare feature on the Mac side, and Toast is easily the best-known software for burning the high-data disks, a capability that is still not included in bundled Mac software. It also converts old media to current forms and supports coding media for iOS devices.
