Mac software bundles are big business these days, and new ones seem to be cropping up on a regular basis. Spawned by the still-popular MacHeist in 2006, bundle software sales always generate a stir in the Mac user community.

Whether this is down to the excitement of gaining a bunch of software for a really low price, or in kickback to the often poor deals given to the developers, most Mac users have an opinion on the issue in one form or another.

Whichever camp you fall into, you’ll be interested to know that two popular Mac bundles are drawing to a close over the next few days.

We recently published a Quick Look at TrackRecord, and I’m pleased to let you know that we have five licenses available to give away today!

TrackRecord is a new time monitoring application for Mac OS X that integrates with 37Signal’s Basecamp. TrackRecord lets you track and manage the time you’re spending, filter your Basecamp account to see as much or as little as you like, and even edit and delete the time you’ve already posted to Basecamp.

It usually costs $20, but you have the chance to bag one of five copies for free! Entering is really easy. 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 I’ll pick five winning comments at random on Friday 24th September. Best of luck!

Quick Look posts are paid submissions offering only a brief overview of an app. Vote in the polls below if you think this app is worth an in-depth AppStorm review!

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Bazinga 4 Mac. The developer describes Bazinga 4 Mac as an app which can turn any web site, web page or web app into a native mac application. This allows you to access your favorite web sites quickly and easily without relying on your web browser.

Read on for more information and screenshots!

Update: We messed up with the price on this one! We’d like to make it clear that Bazinga is completely free, not $49.99 as originally stated. Sorry for the confusion!

In recent years, countless Mac Twitter applications have sprung up seemingly in an instant and died just as quickly. One app that has stayed strong ever since the beginning of the Twitter application revolution is TweetDeck. Its powerful feature set and intense multi-column format, though hated by some, is still a favorite among many power users.

Today we’ll go over ten simple tips that will help new and advanced users alike get the most out of using TweetDeck as the ultimate social media application.

Think about the sheer amount of media content you have stored on your Mac and any backup drives you have. Chances are, the combination of video, music and photos in your personal collection is staggering, but the real problem is sharing it with friends and family.

In an effort to offer a solution that can work on a variety of different Web-connected devices, an Israeli developer came up with Libox as a simpler method to uploading and sharing content without any storage limitations. The coolest part of the app is that it can do this easily with high-definition files as well. Let’s see how it all plays out.

We’re kicking off a new weekly poll today, getting our readers opinion on a different topic each week. Hopefully this will give us all a chance to talk about a relevant issue, share our thoughts, and generally have a chat in the comments!

Today I’m asking something fairly general – how many people have you converted to the Mac platform? I’ve almost lost count of the number of people I’ve tried to haggle and persuade into buying a Mac – friends, family, colleagues – no-one is safe from my persistent nagging!

Do they all make the switch? Not everyone. But I reckon the number of loyal switchers I’ve managed to convert made the jump into double figures quite some time ago.

It’s just a shame that Apple don’t offer a commission every time you drag someone down to the local Apple Store…

Are you the same? Let us know – and do share your thoughts in the comments!

Quick Look posts are paid submissions offering only a brief overview of an app. Vote in the polls below if you think this app is worth an in-depth AppStorm review!

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Resize. The developer of Resize says that when doing web design, it’s critical to test how your page looks under different screen resolutions. Since the mobile web is exploding fast, you have to test against the mobile devices too. Resize is a Safari Extension that to make the process dead easy.
