New Macheist Bundle Offers 12 Programs for $40

Even though I never use all the programs, I'm a bit addicted to the semi-annual-or-something Macheist bundles. For those who are new, Macheist rounds up a buncha software and sells it on the cheap.

This year you get at least 9 programs for $40, and probably more (12) if the company meets its sales goals. The list includes:

iSale (equinux, $39.95)
Picturesque (Acqualia Software, $34.95)
SousChef (Acacia Tree Software, $30)
World of Goo (2D Boy, $20)
PhoneView (Ecamm Network, $19.95)
LittleSnapper (Realmac Software, $39)
Acorn (flying meat inc., $49.95)
Kinemac (Kinemac, $299)
WireTap Studio (Ambrosia Software, $69)
BoinxTV Sponsored Edition (Boinx, $199)
The Hit List (Potion Factory, $69.95)
Espresso (MacRabbit, $80)

And 25% of all Macheist sales go to charity, which leaves us with a warm and fuzzy feeling. If anyone has tried any of the above apps, share your experiences in the comments. I'm on the fence, but I'll probably give in to the INCREDIBLE VALUE!!! [Macheist]
