MacHeist nanoBundle At Zero Dollars
I witnessed the entire revealing of the MacHeist nanoBundle on UStream while also watching the stream of comments go by, mostly about how disappointing the bundle is. Most of them say they won’t pay for it, but guess what? You don’t have to pay for it!
6 apps with a combined price of $154 cost nothing the next 6 days. Get it while it last!
I am only happy with WriteRoom in the bundle. Tried ShoveBox (still prefer Evernote) and Twitterrific (now prefers Tweetie), but not the rest.
Here are the 6 apps you can get yourself without paying:
ShoveBox (developer’s site)
ShoveBox catches all those little scraps of information that you can’t act on now but would rather not forget. It sits up in your menubar, waiting for you to drag in text, images, urls, and more.
Writeroom is all about eliminating distractions. Unlike the cluttered word processors you’re used to, WriteRoom lets you focus on writing. What’s more you can take your writing on the go with the accompanying iPhone app
+ Mac lovers will be familiar with Twitterrific. It’s one of the first best performing Twitter app for the Mac. Twitterrific’s user interface is designed to let you view as much or as little information as you desire. The application shows a scrolling list of the latest tweets from either your friends or public feeds. Twitteriffic also has an iPhone version
TinyGrab is a simple yet extremely powerful utility for Mac OS X and Windows. Harnessing the power of pre-existing and new OS screenshot taking capabilities, TinyGrab instantly uploads and allows you to share with a small URL— all in under thirty-seconds.
A “Tower Defense” game in which you must build walls and lethal towers to defend your village from the Orcs emerging from, what the village elders call, “The Glowing Portal of Really Bad Things That We Should Have Bricked-Up a Long Time Ago.” Sadly, the Portal is un-bricked and the Orcs are very, very hungry. If 20 Orcs make it to your village, you’re toast.
Mariner Write is a powerful, yet streamlined word processor for Mac OS X for everyone from professional writers, to educators, students, to the average user. Boasting an elegant interface, as well as hundreds of intuitive features such as the ability to read Microsoft Word documents and produce customizable headers, footers, endnotes, and footnotes, Mariner Write has everything you need to turn out great-looking documents.
What do you think of the MacHeist nanoBundle? Will you download it?
