We just closed our giveaway — congrats to our winners Marty and Mihir!

It’s Apple Special Announcement day, which likely means that you’re wanting to go buy some shiny new gadgets very soon. But hey, you’ve still got to have the apps you need to get your work done. So why not get the apps you need on the cheap with StackSocial’s Mac Bundle 3.0 — or perhaps win a free copy from AppStorm?

Just like with the popular Humble Bundles, the StackSocial Mac Bundle lets you pay what you want (starting at $1) for the first 3 apps in the bundle — Airy to download YouTube videos, My Living Desktop to bring your Mac’s background to life, and Compartments to catalogue everything in your house. Or, if you pay more than the average — or just over $13 right now — you can get all 10 of the apps in the bundle, including acclaimed apps like Camtasia 2, the $99 professional screencasting app, and CrossOver to run Windows apps on your Mac. That’s quite a steal.

We’ve just closed our BusyCal giveaway, and would like to say Congrats to our winners: Nuri, Trevor, and allenshull!

You’re busy, and you need a calendar. That much is apparent. What’s a bit tricker to figure out is what calendar app you should use to make your busy life more manageable. You could just stick with Calendar.app, corinthian leather and all, or get by with your calendar service’s barebones web app.

Or, you could get the calendar that has been the leading full-featured calendar app on the Mac for years: BusyCal. With a legacy dating back 4 years, it’s been the pro calendar alternate of choice ever since Apple decided to rebrand iCal. It’s easy to use, with a UI similar to the older iCal, but packed with extra features like customizable calendar views, built-in weather and moon phases, alarms and to-dos right alongside your calendar events, and more. It’s just been updated to support Exchange calendars, so it can help you keep track of your work events right alongside your personal calendars and todo lists.

All of that power normally comes at a cost — $29.99 to be precise — but this week we’ve got 3 copies of BusyCal to giveaway to our readers. All you have to do is leave a comment below letting us know what calendar app you currently use and why you want to switch to BusyCal, and you’ll be entered in the giveaway. Then, share the giveaway on your favorite social networks and share a link to the post in a second comment below for an extra entry in the giveaway.

If you still haven’t found the perfect notebook app to organize your thoughts and ideas along with the snippets of info you find online and more, then you need to try out NoteSuite. It’s a new notebook app that brings together rich-text notes with full formatting and images, to-dos, and web clippings in a nice interface. Combine it with its companion iPad app, and you’ve got a serious competitor for the notetaking crown.

We found it to be a powerful productivity tool in our NoteSuite review. It’s especially nice if you like the tabbed interface of apps like OneNote, but want the flexibility of an app like Evernote without relying on their cloud storage. It’s currently on sale for just $4.99 in the App Store, but we’ve got something even better: 10 copies to giveaway to our readers!

NoteSuite lets you bring everything together in your notes.

As with most of our giveaways, just leave a comment below and tell us why you want a copy of NoteSuite to enter our contest. Then, share the giveaway on your social networks and leave a second comment with a link to your post for an extra entry.

Hurry and get your entries in; we’re closing the giveaway on Wednesday, August 28th!

Also, our sister site iPad.AppStorm is running a NoteSuite for iPad giveaway as well; be sure to enter it also if you have an iPad!

Frustrated with all the blank music note covers on your albums? Combine that with messed up song info, and it can be terribly hard to find that song you’re looking for. If it’s easier to go grab the original CD than it is to find the song in iTunes, you need help. And that’s what TuneUp is for. It’s the iTunes plugin that’ll cleanup your library, adding album art and song metadata and getting rid of duplicate tracks in just one click with the just-released TuneUp 3. It’ll analyze your library, organize everything in easy-to-understand graphs about your music library, and make you wish you’d taken it for a spin sooner.

We called it “a great timesaver if, like most of us, your iTunes library is a mess” in our review, and that still holds true today — even more so with the revamped latest version.

TuneUp usually costs $49.95 for a lifetime license, but we’ve got 3 lifetime licenses of TuneUp 3 just for our readers this week. Sound like something you’d like to get your hands on? Then just leave a comment below and let us know how big your iTunes library is to get your entry in our giveaway. If you’d like an extra entry in the giveaway, just share this post on your favorite social network and add another comment below with a link to your post.

Hurry and get your entry in; we’ll close the giveaway on Friday, August 23rd. Oh, and for the record: my iTunes library currently weighs in at just over 6.2Gb, with around 1100 songs.

Growl, the original notifications app on the Mac, has been one of the mainstays in the realm of pro Mac apps for years now. If you want to keep up with everything that’s happening with your apps and accounts, you had Growl. It was also free, but a couple years ago started charging to support its updates — and not too long after, Apple added notifications to OS X, making Growl a harder sell.

But Growl‘s still great. With the apps that support it, you can tweak your notifications, get everything in one rolled-up list, or forward notifications to the OS X Notifications Center if you want. You can find out more about what’s going on with your Mac with addons like HardwareGrowler, and much more. It does plenty to justify the $3.99 it costs on the App Store.

And, even better, we’ve got 3 copies for our readers this week!

The new Growl — with OS X Notifications integration.

You’ll get iTeleport to connect to remote computers, A Better Finder Renamer to help you quickly rename and organize your files, Chronicle to keep up with your bills, Focus to tweak your photos, AppDelete to fully remove apps from your Mac, Animix to animate your photos, and Deal Alert to help you find the very best deals online. That’s a great deal for $10, but we’ve got 3 copies to giveaway to our readers for free!

We’ve just closed our giveaway; congrats to our winners —Emanuele, Stephanie, ooredroxoo, Maxim, and Carlos.

Keeping all of the info for your projects and tasks together in one place can be difficult, especially if you need to work on a Mac and a PC. I was so excited to see how well Pagico works for cross-platform productivity when I tried it out for our recent review. It more than met my expectations for a cross-platform productivity app, and is honestly one of the nicest team productivity apps for the Mac, period.

That’s why we’re excited to have 5 copies of Pagico Desktop to giveaway this week. You can use it on your Mac or PC — or even on Ubuntu — so this giveaway is something you can take advantage of even if you’re planning on getting a Mac sometime but don’t have one yet.

As normal, just leave a comment below and tell us why you’d be excited to get a free copy of Pagico to enter the giveaway. Then, share the giveaway on your favorite social networks and share a link to your post in a second comment below for an extra entry.

There’s been a ton of great bundles already this summer, but the best one yet just might be StackSocial’s Summer 2013 Mac Bundle. It’s got tons of great apps that we’d recommend any day: Parallels Desktop 8 to run other OSes on your Mac, SnagIt to capture and tweak screenshots like a pro, Typinator to keep you from wearing out your keyboard and fingers typing too much, Boom to make your MacBook’s speakers loud enough to watch a movie with friends, ColorStrokes to make your photos even more special, and more for just $49.99. That’s quite a steal.

If you’ve been wanting those apps, we’ve got the perfect chance for you, since we’ve got two copies of the full bundle to giveaway to our readers. And, even if you go ahead and buy a copy of the bundle today (or already bought a copy), you’ll get your full purchase refunded if you win. How’s that for an awesome giveaway?

There’s so many music streaming services, but good old fashioned radio is still one of the best ways to listen to music online. It’s free, curated by professionals, and isn’t locked down to specific countries as most online music services are. That’s why Radium 3 is one of my favorite tiny Mac apps. It lets me listen to internet radio right from my Mac’s menubar while I’m working, and makes it easy to discover new stations and songs.

We gave Radium 3 a high rating in our review, and continues to be the way I and many others on our team listen to internet radio. It’s gotten even better since its release, and now includes higher resolution album art and options to buy songs on Amazon in addition to iTunes. Combine that with its catalog of over 6,000 radio stations, AirPlay support, the Smart Equalizer, and a wish list of the songs you’ve heard and want to buy, and you couldn’t ask for a better Mac radio player.

Radium 3 usually costs $9.99 on the App Store, but we’ve got 3 codes to giveaway to our readers. If you don’t have Radium 3 yet, here’s your chance to get your own copy for free. Just comment below and let us know why you’d love to have a copy of Radium 3 to enter the giveaway. Then, share this page on your favorite social network and comment again with a link to your post for a bonus entry.
