MacHeist Retail Bundle revealed…

So here’s more info on the MacHeist Retail bundle.  

There are 12 apps included.  Here’s the rundown along with a few comments. Being an avid MacHeister, I already have most of these apps.  There’s more info about the individual apps at the MacHeist site.

Awaken – This is one I didn’t think much about that was in the most recent MacHeist bundle.  I probably never would have tried this on my own.  However, I absolutely love it and use it every day.  Support from the developer, Jerry Brace, is nothing short of phenomenal!  You’ll love this one.

Wallet – This was included in a Christmas referral bonus.  If you don’t want or need the robustness of something like 1Password, this is a great little program.  I set it up for my dad and my cousin for them to keep track of passwords, serial numbers, etc.

Xslimmer – I just recently started using this one.  It has already freed up several gigabytes of space on the smaller hard drive of my aging 4-year old G4 laptop.  

WriteRoom – This is a good one for folks who just want to write without being distracted by a lot of bells and whistles.  It just lets you write.

Overflow – This one is indispensable to me.  I had so many apps in my dock that I couldn’t even figure out what they were because they were so small.  Now there’s only a handful in the dock, and Overflow has them all managed by category.

Cha-Ching – I got burned out on Quicken and wanted something easier but that would still do the job.  This was another recent MacHeist app.  I like the interface and the ease of use of this one.

DEVONthink Personal – Honestly, I’ve been using Notebook for a long time, and I didn’t see the need to use both.  I have several friends that use this one though, and they love it.

iClip – This is a great clipboard app.  Easy to use, very functional.  If you copy and paste a lot, you need this one.

Bugdom 2 – Cute game first introduced several years ago.  I’d actually forgotten about it.  Give it a shot.

Nanosaur 2 – I might be wrong, but I think a trial of the original version used to come on new Macs.  I’ll enjoy getting back into this one.

CoverSutra – Wow.  You just have to use this one a time or two to be hooked.  The search feature is killer. Control iTunes without having to leave the app you’re currently working in.  Beautiful app.

Enigmo – Deceptive in its simplicity.  Addictive little puzzle game.

So, that’s the package.  Quite a good line-up.  We hardcore MacHeisters were hoping for a new bundle, not a “Greatest Hits” package, but we’ll just have to keep looking forward to MacHeist 3 later this year.  MacHeist is continuing their altruistic endeavors by donating 25% of the proceeds to charity.

They have a cool referral program in place with some great prizes up for grabs.  If you’re interested, please click on this link to head over to MacHeist to check it out.  Thanks!
