MacUpdate recently posted their latest bundle of Mac software. Included among the $450 worth of software in the MacUpdate Holiday Bundle are must-haves like Drive Genius 2, DefaultFolder X 4, LittleSnitch 2 and WhatSize 4. If it included only those four items, it would still be a savings of $126.90…but it also includes 6 other apps. Here’s the full list:
- Drive Genius 2 ($99): Currently the highest-rated disk utility on the market and used by Mac Geniuses at Apple Stores, Drive Genius diagnoses and repairs problems with your hard drive, optimizes your system, and much more. Buyers will receive a link to download a bootable DVD image of the software to burn, which can be used to boot and fix any Mac that can run Mac OS X 10.5, including Apple’s newest laptops.
- DefaultFolder X 4 ($34.95): Fly through Open & Save dialog boxes at lightning speed.
- VirusBarrier X 10.5 ($69.95): Fast, simple, and non-intrusive anti-virus software for your Mac and iPhone
- RapidWeaver 4 ($79): Create powerful, professional-looking Web sites quickly and easily.
- MacGourmet Deluxe ($44.95): Like iTunes for food, track recipes, plan meals, manage wines, and more.
- LittleSnitch 2 ($29.95): Monitors your network connection to make sure your Mac only sends out what you want it to.
- KeyCue 4 ($27): Displays full keyboard shortcuts for all your applications; learn them and work faster.
- MacPilot 3 ($19.95): Access hundreds of hidden features to customize and improve your Mac OS X experience.
- WhatSize 4 ($12.99): Effortlessly identify files that are hogging disk space and that you don’t need anymore.e
- iVolume 3 ($29.95): Ensures all your iTunes tracks play back at the same level, so you never have to adjust the volume individually.
My only reluctance in buying these bundles lately has been that I already have licenses for so many of the applications already. I’m sure you have the same problem if you’ve bought a few MacUpdate bundles or MacHeist bundles in the past.
