xScope is a practical set of measuring tools for designers and developers. They’re great for aligning and inspecting on-screen graphics and layouts.

iStopMotion - almost everyone has a favorite stop motion film, from classics like Gumby to more recent productions like Coraline. If you’ve ever dreamed of directing your own stop motion feature, iStopMotion gives you all the tools you need to create a masterpiece.

What better way to spend a rainy day than creating a story, and memories, with your child and their favorite toys.

Totals - If you’ve struggled to create professional looking documents in Pages or Word, you’ll appreciate the ease with which you can generate slick, customized invoices with Totals.

Never forget who owes you money again. With Totals, all your outstanding invoices and estimates are tracked automatically.

Clarify Clarify makes it easy to create gorgeous tutorials and how-to’s. When you need to add a bit of explanation to your screenshots, Clarify is the all in one tool to simplify the process.

Use Clarify whether you need to take a new screenshot or add an existing image, annotate with an arrow or use more advanced options like step numbers, highlights or text. If you have multiple screenshots to illustrate a process, it’s easy to organize each one into it’s own step of the process and then export slick PDF documents that are easy to read by the less technologically gifted.

Fantasical Admit it, you hate iCal… But you don’t have to suffer any longer! Presenting Fantastical, a neat little app that streamlines your schedule.

With Fantastical, simply type in the details as a sentence and it automatically detects and schedules your event. It also acts as a hub for your reminders, eliminating the need to juggle multiple programs with different lists.

CleanMyMac 2 Has your Mac been feeling a bit slow lately? CleanMyMac 2 automatically gets rid of bloated, useless files and speeds up your system.

CleanMyMac 2 also has a host of other tools to help you keep your Mac in shape! Quickly uninstall apps you don’t use anymore, disable or uninstall extensions, widgets, or preference panes, and securely erase anything you don’t want anyone else to find.

Little InfernoExcite your inner pyromaniac! Throw your toys into the fire, and play with them as they burn.

Burn flaming logs, screaming robots, credit cards, batteries, exploding fish, unstable nuclear devices, and tiny galaxies. An adventure that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace - about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall.

Path FinderIf you’ve ever wished that the Finder supported tabs like a web browser, Path Finder is the tool for you. It also boasts some other features previously confined to web browsing, like bookmarking for your favorite files and folders.

And if you want even more control over your files, you can take advantage of advanced features like batch renaming, file tagging, and advanced searching based on criteria. Customize your experience with the modular interface and spend less time looking for the files you need.

Heads up, for those interested in xScope Mirror functionality, it is written in several places including inside the xScope app that the companion app "xScope Mirror" for iPhone and iPad is supposed to be free, but it's showing up as $1.99 in the app store for me.

Looks like they increased the price from free to 1.99 on Apr 14, 2013, just in time for this macheist bundle.

I remember 4-5 years ago when these bundles actually had useful apps.

I bought the MacHeist 4 bundle several months ago, playing the games so I got a discount (there's no game on this bundle, but if you buy this you'll hear about the larger bundle).

Like the other bundle, these are lesser known programs, that I believe the authors include to get some exposure. Not all are stellar, but at least 4 of the programs are in the Mac App Store, and you can read their reviews and see that they really do sell for that price. Normally the bundle is worth it for just one or two of the programs.

With the MacHeist 4 bundle, I actually got the program Netshade for FREE just for playing a game, which sells for $29.95. Most people might not find that program useful, but living in Italy, I can watch Hulu and Netflix, which normally are blocked to people outside of the US. This program alone was worth the bundle, even though it was free. I also got a 15 months of Evernote Premium, Firetask, Printopia, DiskTools Pro, and Scrivner, to name just some of the programs.

Anyway, this is one of the very few bundles from MacHeist I actually find somewhat useful. However, MacHeist always seems to have a catch regarding the licenses. Usually they are outdated versions or they will be in the very near future (aka there is an upcoming release) and you get a license that is not upgradable to the newer version. I wonder if that has changed yet. Anyone?


Last Macheist bundle I bought had Scrivener, Tuneup for Itunes, and 15 months of Evernote Premium, not counting 20 other apps and games I am not naming at the moment.

Zero problems so far updates on any of them.

Only thing I am aware of is that unlike sites like Stacksocial, Macheist states they do not keep your serials on hand forever. So I made a pdf copy and have it upload to both my dropbox and skydrive for backup.

I've long been interested in CleanMyMac,

I would not recommend CleanMyMac or its variants, based on the number of complaints (http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=14132129&postcount=37) that have been posted in this forum and elsewhere. As an example: CleanMyMac cleaned too much (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=709930). Here's (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1501557) a recent example. While you may not have experienced problems yet, enough people have that it's wise to avoid it, especially since there are free alternatives that have better reputations, such as Onyx (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11582/onyx).

You don't need "cleaner" or "maintenance" apps to keep your Mac running well, and some of these apps can do more harm than good. Most only remove files/folders or unused languages or architectures, which does nothing more than free up some drive space, with the risk of deleting something important in the process.

These apps will not make your Mac run faster or more efficiently, since having stuff stored on a drive does not impact performance, unless you're running out of drive space. In fact, deleting some caches can hurt performance, rather than help it, since more system resources are used and performance suffers while each cache is being rebuilt.

Many of these tasks should only be done selectively to troubleshoot specific problems, not en masse as routine maintenance.

Mac OS X does a good job of taking care of itself, without the need for 3rd party software. Among other things, it has its own maintenance scripts that run silently in the background on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, without user intervention.
