We’ve just closed our giveaway; congrats to our winners Alex, Valter, dion, Nuri, and jdnorthwest!

Apple spoiled us all last week by releasing OS X Mavericks and the new iLife and iWork apps all for free. That should have freed up some of your pennies to get some great indie apps for your Mac — and we’ve got a great bundle to share where you can get a ton of apps for said pennies.

Paddle’s newest Pay What You Want bundle includes 16 apps that are ready for your Mac with OS X Mavericks, including the Bits diary app we’ve just reviewed and Shortcat, the awesome keyboard shortcut app that was developed by a former Envato team member. There’s more, too: MenuEverywhere to get your Mac menus right inside your apps, Focus to improve your photos, Code Collector Pro to backup your code snippets, Slink to securely connect to remote networks, and more. All that for the low price of whatever you’d like to pay.

Or, you could get it for free, since we have 5 of the bundles to giveaway. Just comment below and let us know what apps you’d like most in this bundle to enter — then share the giveaway on your favorite social networks and leave another comment with a link to your shared post for an extra entry.

Hurry and get your entry in — the giveaway closes on Friday, November 1st!

Envato staff or those who have written more than two articles or tutorials for AppStorm are ineligible to enter.

Mac app bundles are a great way to get a ton of apps on the cheap, but usually they’re filled with aging apps that are ripe for an update. Not this time. Paddle’s Cheaper by the Dozen bundle this week includes 4 debut apps that just launched — and you can get them and the other apps in the bundle for just $34.99 right now, or possibly for free with our giveaway.

This bundle includes Bluetail, the brand-new vector app we gave an 8/10 last week, and the just-launched Marked 2 that’ll help you proof and export your Markdown writing that’s nice enough to get a 9/10 in our review. You’ll also find the somewhat older Raskin for viewing your Finder files in unique ways, MenuMate to make menus more accessible in your apps, the new GoodDay that brings mobile web apps to your Mac’s menubar, and the beautiful EarthDesk to turn your Mac’s background into a stunning dynamic image of the Earth. And more!

Everyone loves bundles, but how about 3 new bundles? That’s what our friends at Paddle have this week. They’ve got two new games bundles — the Pay What You Want Variety Games Bundle and the Fall Pay What You Want Game Bundle — with 5 games each for Mac and PC, as well as a bundle of Mac apps from Little App Factory.

Each of the bundles are a great deal since they’re pay-what-you-want bundles like the popular Humble Bundles, but we’ve got something even better: 5 copies of the bundles for our readers. 5 lucky readers are going to win all 3 of these bundles this week.

It’s the eve of WWDC 2013, and Apple’s cloud sync platform, iCloud, is one of the highest priorities in every developer’s mind. It’s been 603 days since iCloud‘s launch and exactly 1 year 5 months after the App Store burst onto the Mac scene, and yet both feel like they’ve hardly moved forward at all.

Sure, they’re both widely successful, and the App Store especially has change the way we approach buying apps. But the App Store has also made it tough for developers to make upgraded versions of apps economically feasible, leading them to add in-app purchases for new features, or add their own subscription-based services to make money. Of the two, though, iCloud has been the most problematic, leading developers like The Soulmen to have to rewrite major parts of iCloud sync code to get it to work in their apps (Ulysses III, in this case).

We’re all hoping Apple significantly improves iCloud this year, and perhaps there’ll be major announcements about both it and the App Store next week. But there’s also alternates now. Aside from just relying on Dropbox for sync, the Omni Group has built their own iCloud competitor, OmniPresence, and Paddle is making it simpler for indie devs to sell their own apps with in-app purchases, outside of the App Store.
