Good deal: name your own price on this Mac software bundle

mac bundle 3

Good news Mac owners, Stack Social is running another one of its popular “name your own price” software promotions. There are 11 apps in the bundle, worth some $400, and like the name suggests you can literally pay whatever you want.

Is there a catch? A small one. The deal site keeps a running average of what people are paying for the package, which is currently at $8.95. Pay below the average, and you’ll only get 4 of the apps; you must pay $8.96 or higher to get all 11…

And now that the fine print is out of the way, let’s look at a breakdown of the apps including in the bundle.

  • Snagit For Mac – record screen videos and enhance your images with the ultimate screen Capture Tool
  • Flux 4 – powerful mac web design made easy
  • Jump Desktop – a remote desktop application that will let you securely connect to any computer in the world
  • MacX Video Converter Pro – a quick, easy way to convert any video to over 180 video formats
  • Tunes Cleaner – delete duplicate songs and revitalize your iTunes library
  • Boom For Mac – system-wide Mac volume boost for a richer sounding experience
  • Mariner Write – an elegant and efficient word processing tool for your Mac
  • CameraBag 2 – a powerful and beautiful photo app that brings a new approach to editing your pictures
  • Chronicle 5 – an app that reminds you to pay your bills, even when it isn’t running
  • Folx Pro – an easier and faster way to download files
  • Elite Keylogger Pro – an undetectable keystroke logger for Mac

Again, if you pay less than the average price, you’ll only receive 4 apps: CameraBag 2, Chronicle 5, Folx Pro and Elite Keylogger Pro. This is to help build incentive for users to bid more than just $0.01, helping the site maintain a healthy price point.

To be honest, though, with the average price being $8.96, so all you have to do is offer say $9, and all 11 apps—worth over $400—are yours. But if you really don’t want to spend that much, $1 for the 4 above apps is still a great deal, so win-win.

Actually it’s more like a win-win-win, because Stack Social has partnered with charities, which you can choose to give 10% of your offer to. So you get a sweet deal, the site sells some bundles, and a charity gets a donation to keep doing cool stuff.
