New Macfriendly software bundle offers great savings
By David Dahlquist, Macworld
MacFriendly, a company known for releasing bundles of apps at far lower prices than their combined values,
has released its latest bundle of goods, MacFriendly 3. This latest bundle consists of 12 handy applications for Mac users. While the bundle is valued at over $400, MacFriendly is selling it for $50, which represents a savings of over 85 percent off the list prices. Of course, the catch is that you might not actually want to use all of the apps.
If a few of the bundled apps do happen to catch your fancy, you could be in for some pretty nice savings. For example,
Twisted Wave, an audio-editing app included in the bundle, retails for $80 on its own—so if you’re interested in just that particular app, MacFriendly will actually save you money. Other app highlights include
CrossOver Mac, a Windows-to-Macintosh compatibility tool;
Calico Panorama, an automatic multi-row panorama stitcher; and
MovieSherlock, which lets you download and convert YouTube movies. The different apps have varying system requirements, but most seem to support OS X 10.4.x or higher.
MacFriendly is sweetening the deal even more by donating a portion of each sale to support animal rescue programs. MacFriendly bundles might not have everything you’re looking for, but they’re always worth checking out—if you’re interested in more than a few of the apps, you’re likely to save big. Alas, good things don’t last forever, and this current offer will end on February 26th.
