12 Mac applications for $50
MacUpdate Promo has unveiled its Winter 2010 Bundle, consisting of 10 Mac applications (plus two "bonus" apps) worth a combined $534 for $50. Buyers of the bundle can gift apps to others that they already have, but the individual applications are the same as the versions bought new at regular price. The sale began at midnight EST December 8th and runs for 15 days.
Regular apps included in the bundle include the latest versions of 1PassWord, DevonThink Personal, Swift Publisher, Mac Family Tree, Flux, Default Folder, the retail edition of Art Text which includes 100 fonts, Chronories, Interarchy and Typinator. All versions, upgrade paths and support are the same as they would be if purchased at the regular price. Buyers must also register (free) as members of MacUpdate. The first 10,000 bundle buyers also receive Mail Stationary and Star Wars: Jedi Knight II as bonus programs.
All the applications offered run on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. About half require at least OS X 10.4 or higher, and half require at least 10.5 or higher. Trial versions of all the apps are available in a 335MB download.
