What Do You Think?

A few of the apps included in the bundle look great, but I’m already very happy with my “graphics editing workflow”. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts – will you be handing over $39.99 for the package of apps on offer?

    I would like to see a bundle that allowed us to mix and match apps. I already own Picturesque and Graphic Converter, but Graphic Designer Toolbox looks really interesting. It’s price is more than the bundle, but honestly I don’t have time to try out multiple apps. especially considering the Macupdate bundle was free!

    I think it looks great. MacHeist already had a package with Picturesque in it so a lot of people probably already have the app, but 1 out of 7 isn’t bad.

    I will probably hand over my $39.99 simply for DrawIt. It’s an app I have wanted to try for some time. All the others for an extra $0.99 you can’t go wrong.

    I used GraphicConverter back when I was around twelve, and before I’d discovered Photoshop…
