Thanks for taking the time to enter, and we’ll have another competition kicking off next week.

Today I’m pleased to announce that we have five copies of iStat Menus to give away, courtesy of the lovely folk at Bjango. We reviewed the latest release of iStat Menus earlier in the week, and were really impressed with the quality of the application.

iStat Menus keeps you informed with exactly what’s going on behind the scenes of your computer – CPU/memory usage, disk space, battery life – you name it, and you can keep track of it with iStat. All through a beautiful interface.

Entering only takes a few minutes. All you need to do is:

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

The competition will run for one week, and we’ll announce the winners on the Friday, 14th May. Good luck, and enjoy your weekend!

Bundles are controversial. Developers rarely get a good deal, and there’s a wealth of mixed opinion about whether they’re really such a good idea. Even if a certain percentage does go to charity.

Yesterday marked the start of The Humble Indie Bundle, a unique concept that lets you pay what you want for the applications on offer. You heard it right! If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $80 – but you get to set the price.

All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux, and there’s no middle-man. 100% of your purchase goes directly to the developers and non-profits as you specify (minus credit card fees).

So far, the bundle has sold over 35,000 times, and raised just under $300,000 – the figures may well be higher by the time this is published. It’s a great concept and, if you’d like to support the indie game developer community, be sure to find out more.

It’s competition time again, and today we’re giving away three licenses for Fontcase, a wonderful font management app for OS X. We recently revisited our review of Fontcase to take a look at a few of the new features added in the latest version (including auto-activation and duplicate detection).

Entering the competition is very straight-forward. All you need to do is:

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

The competition will run for one week, and we’ll announce the winners on the Thursday 15th April. Good luck, and enjoy your weekend!

We’re announcing a new type of post on AppStorm today: Quick Look. These short application overviews will give you a description, a few screenshots, and basic information about a particular piece of software. They’re sponsored, so developers pay a small fee to have their app featured in a Quick Look post.

At the end of each post we’ll have a poll for readers to vote in. If you like what you see, you can vote for us to write a full (completely unbiased) review of the software in question.

It’s a great way to find out about new applications you haven’t come across before and a great way for developers to get the word out about their new app. We’ll have a few of these posts appearing over the course of this week so you’ll be able to see how they work.

Quick Look posts will be in addition to our regular publishing schedule here at AppStorm. So you’ll continue getting the same great reviews, roundups and guides, plus you’ll now get Quick Looks at new and interesting apps!

We’re very excited by the prospect of showcasing more apps, finding AppStorm a new revenue source to help us grow, and giving developers a promotional tool to market their work. We’d love to hear your feedback on this addition, so feel free to leave a comment or send us an email.

If you’d like to have your application featured, Quick Look posts cost $49 and will help you reach an audience of people who love their Mac! Fill in this form to reserve a post.
