With all the hype centered yearly around MacHeist, it’s common for other bundles to be easily overlooked. One great deal announced yesterday is The Mac Sale, offering ten highly acclaimed applications for $49.99.
The software included in the bundle is:
- Flux – An all-in-one web design app which handles CSS, WYSIWYG, coding, debugging, publishing, and even basic image editing (see our review)
- Scribbles – Whether you want to sketch a cartoon, draw a birthday card or jot down some design ideas, Scribbles can help bring your imagination to life.
- Interarchy – An advanced file-transfer system for OS X, including a brand new protocol built upon SSH.
- Iris – A powerful, intuitive, and easy-to-use solution for all your photo editing needs.
- WriteRoom – An application which takes a completely different approach to writing, stripping away all the distractions you commonly find yourself faced with when using a Mac (see our review)
- REALBasic – A software development tool for creating high-quality applications.
- Houdah Spot – The bestselling file search tool for the Mac, unleashing the full power of Spotlight.
- Stuf – The professional clipboard manager built for the modern Mac.
- TaskPaper – A task manager that recognizes and automatically formats projects, tasks, notes, and tags.
- MarinerCalc – A powerful spreadsheet that can “turn data into information” with powerful tools to analyze, communicate, and share.
The sale has started already and will continue to run until the 18th August. An asking price of $49.99 is a real bargain for the applications on offer, and I’d certainly recommend taking a closer look to decide whether the bundle is worth snapping up.

There has been a great deal of recent talk about the new version of OS X, scheduled for release in September. Called Snow Leopard, it aims to offer a range of speed and performance improvements, improve the architecture upon which your applications run, and offer better Exchange support for businesses.
Due to the lack of many new end-user features, it’s set to be the cheapest upgrade to date – priced at only $29. This article will go into detail about the improvements to expect in Snow Leopard, along with offering a few reasons to upgrade.
Apple have just released a new version of Safari. It brings a whole host of improvements including noticeable speed enhancements, new ways to browse and search sites, and a range of interface changes. A few new features to look out for are:
- Very noticeable speed improvements
- Top Sites – a way to browse your most commonly frequented sites
- Cover Flow implementation throughout the browser
- Tabs are now placed at the top of the window (akin to Google Chrome)
A full list of changes has been posted on the what’s new page. I’m really pleased with the speed improvements, and feel that it’s a worthy Version 4 release. Head over to the download page and let me know what you think!
