The Mac Gems blog is all about reviews of great, inexpensive software, but I occasionally highlight a good deal on Gems, as well. Today is one of those times, as I’ve got a couple notable promotions to cover.
First, the time-sensitive one: Over at $2 Tuesday, you can get two past Mac Gems and a future Gem (though you didn’t hear that from me) for the paltry sum of $2 each:
Dropzone makes it easy to move, upload, or share files using a simple, drag-and-drop interface.
Compartments (; 2010 review) is a nifty home-inventory app that makes it easy to catalog your belongings, as well as to track product warranties.
Socialite (; 2010 review) lets you follow your favorite people and sites on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Digg, Google Reader, and RSS—all from within a single app. Socialite also makes it easy to share the stuff you find.
Second, for the next month, the current bundle from the folks over at The Mac Bundles consists entirely of previous Mac Gems. For $40, you get these ten apps:
Bevy (; 2009 review) is similar to LaunchPad, but it debuted years before Lion. And it betters LaunchPad by letting you more easily organize items and by making them easier to find.
Amazon Shop buttons are programmatically attached to all reviews, regardless of products' final review scores. Our parent company, IDG, receives advertisement revenue for shopping activity generated by the links. Because the buttons are attached programmatically, they should not be interpreted as editorial endorsements.
