12 Top Mac Apps on the Cheap!

Posted on 12 April 2008 by admin

MacHeist is at it again. They've just released their new bundle chock-full of great Mac shareware for $49! This isn't a sponsored post... I just use many of these apps, and wish I knew this bundle was coming out. I easily spent the $49 on just a few of the apps listed.

To introduce you to mac shareware, they've put together a bundle of some of the best software offerings from the Mac community, and discounted the whole package to an insane amount. Online sales of the MacHeist Retail Bundle will only be for a limited time.

Here is a list of the apps included in this bundle:


awaken1 awaken2

Awaken is a digital alarm clock that wakes you up by playing the iTunes playlist of your choice or choose from a selection of built in alarm sounds. Alarms can be created to alert you on a weekly basis at a set time, or at any specific date and time. You can also fall asleep to your favorite music using the sleep timer.

I was starting to sleep through my alarm, so I purchased this app, and have loved it ever since.

Cha-Ching is a fun and easy to use money manager, with a slick interface that uses advanced functionality built into OS X. I have been using this for about 6 months, and find it very easy to use.

We all love music. Whether we're browsing the Internet, editing some pictures in Photoshop or writing the next bestseller in Pages, music is always by our side.

But isn't it annoying to switch to iTunes just to select a different song or pause playback?

CoverSutra gives you a handy and attractive way to control iTunes without having to leave your current application.

See what's currently playing or enjoy your album artwork. Don't let yourself be distracted from your work... CoverSutra is never in your way but always by your side.

DEVONthink Personal

Everyone forgets stuff. That's why Wallet is so great. Can't seem to remember your account for that one site you almost never visit? Need to re-install some software you lost the serial number for? Well, you're in trouble. But had you entered that data in Wallet beforehand, you'd be able to retrieve that information instantly. Best of all: because of Wallet's flexibility, it can be used to keep almost any sort of data you can think of! Grocery lists, day agendas, the locations of downtown WiFi hotspots, etc. are just some of the possibilities when using Wallet. You'll never have an excuse to forget things again.

A place to sit down and write

Walk into WriteRoom, and watch your distractions fade away. Now it's just you and your text. WriteRoom is a place where your mind clears and your work gets done. When your writing is complete, exit WriteRoom and re-enter the busy world with your work in hand.

For writing, and nothing more

WriteRoom is not Microsoft Word. It won't generate a table of contents, it won't place borders around your documents, and it doesn't have an animated paper-clip looking over your shoulder. Instead WriteRoom just provides the essential features required to get words on the page. Stay focused with WriteRoom's distraction free environment. Stay on track with word count. Stay safe with autosave. You just type, and WriteRoom will do its best to stay out of your way.



Enigmo is the most unique game that Pangea Software has ever created, and it is a departure from our action-adventure games which we are known for. Enigmo is a 3D puzzle game where you move various streams of flowing liquid so that the droplets get to their destination. Liquids (water, oil, and lava) fall from "droppers" and will bounce around the walls of a mechanism. You move and rotate into position various types of bumpers, sliders, accelerators, and sponges in order to divert the flow of the falling droplets. The faster you complete each level, the more bonus you will receive.

In addition to the 70 levels (50 normal + 20 kiddie mode) that come with Enigmo, there is also a built-in level editor which allows you to create your own entire games. You can then email these games to your friends to try playing, or even post them to your web site. We expect that as users create their own games and we link to them, there will eventually be thousands of levels for you to download and play with Enigmo!

Bugdom 2

bugdom1.jpg bugdom2.jpg

It has been three years since Rollie McFly rid the Bugdom of the evil King Thorax and his minions, but the Bugdom can still be dangerous place as our new hero Skip is about to find out. While on his way to visit his family on the far side of the Bugdom, a Bully Bee swooped down and stole Skip�s knapsack. Your job as Skip is to track down the Bully Bee and get your knapsack back. The chase takes place mostly in and around a house.

You will make new friends in the Bugdom who will help you through each area. Keep an eye out for Sam the Snail and Sally the Chipmunk. Sam will usually make you prove your worthiness before he will help you, but Sally is just interested in gathering acorns, so be sure to brings lots of those to her. Additionally, the same Buddy Bugs that helped Rollie McFly defeat King Thorax will help you defeat most mean enemy bugs that you encounter.

Bugdom 2 is a 3D action-adventure game suitable for all ages.

Nanosaur 2


Nanosaur 2 is a continuation of the original Nanosaur storyline, yet this time you get to fly a pteradactyl who's loaded with hi-tech weaponry, and the game is much larger than the original 1998 game. In addition to the three level adventure mode where you blast enemy dinos and save eggs, there are also six two-player levels including racing, capture-the-flag, and battle.

    There is no doubt our health care system is in dire need of change. However, there is a troubling problem - namely, Who is in charge of determining what is evidence? Many US medical professionals who are currently in positions of deciding what is and is not "evidence", have long histories of ties with insurers, other stakeholder industries and Big Tobacco. They and the medical associations that they govern also have much influence into government medical policies established through the CDC, NIOSH, HHS, NIH, NIEHS and the EPA. It is a grave concern among many, that patients such as Dr. Wolfberg's 5 year old daughter, are not able to obtain proper treatment because we have given too much power to those with financial interests in determining what is viable medical treatment. It is a concern that we have given the Proverbial Foxes the Keys to the Evidence Based Medicine Hen House.For more on the subject of conflicts of interest involving those who are controlling national medical protocol, read the following links:
