I’m always thrilled to see Mac software being used for a charitable goal. A recent email from Jim Whimpey drew my attention to his Mac software raffle, with all proceeds going towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. JDRF is one of the biggest organizations around committed to fighting type 1 diabetes.

Every $10 you donate to Jim’s Ride to Cure Diabetes between September 1st and 14th will get you a chance to win one of two great Mac software bundles.

The software included seems to be growing every day, and includes Things, MarsEdit, Black Ink, Scribbles, Tweetie, Clipstart, Wii Transfer, TimeBoxed, 1Password, and Family.

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning, and do something for a great cause, head over and donate your $10!

Ember is a new web application, recently launched to complement the excellent LittleSnapper. I’m thrilled to let you know that our sister site, Web.AppStorm, has announced a great competition to win two copies of LittleSnapper and five Ember Pro licenses.

It’s a great chance to get your hands on a solid inspiration-gathering system, and entering is simple. Just read through the competition announcement at Web.AppStorm for all the details.

Good luck!

It will be continuing for the foreseeable future, and if you have any suggestions, comments or questions, please feel free to email me.

We’re kicking off another big software giveaway today, with two copies of VoodooPad and ten Pathfinder licenses up for grabs.

We have recently reviewed VoodooPad – a place to dump all your information, no matter how obscure. The application is elastic, and can stretch to meet your needs, and shrink accordingly.

Pathfinder featured in our roundup of Finder alternatives, coming out as the most powerful and full-featured of those on offer.

Entering is simple. All you need to do is:

  • Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  • Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link!

The competition will run for one week, and we’ll randomly select three winners on Wednesday 9th September. Good luck!

Since we launched Mac.AppStorm early this year it’s been growing really rapidly and rapidly getting a reputation as the leading blog on Mac Apps. This is in no small part due to our very talented editor David Appleyard who has steered this blog from strength to strength. With Mac.AppStorm doing so well, we’ve decided it’s time to branch out into another great area of apps – the Web! Meet Web.AppStorm. (more…)

I’d like to hear your thoughts on the MacTastik comic – is it something you have a good laugh at each week, or would you prefer the site focuses solely on Mac app information?

It’s been a hectic 3 days for us here at Envato. We’ve had a massively successful Birthday Bundle (over 5,000 sales in 3 days), lots of giveaways, a fantastic Tuts+ tutorial set up for free download and our first video interview. Here in the office we’ve also been celebrating today with a big lunch and lots of network gaming! With the birthday all wrapped up now though I thought I’d give you a very quick preview of what’s coming up in September…
