Tis the season for bundles

With these two added to the mix there are now 5 Mac bundles going on. A bit insane. Mac Legion, BundleHunt, MacFriendly [which ends in 7 hours, has the font pack and is $10 cheaper], plus the two listed here. And there were 2 others that just ended, plus Mac Bundler is about to begin.

Oh, and The Mac Bundles is going on now too.

I have affiliate links to all of these, but I'm not putting them in this post - just google the terms to find the sites.

Oh, and Deals2Have is also having some Mac software on sale. Oh, and Cult of Mac has a 11-app bundle too. Crazy!

The only real apps I use outside of the default apple ones are Day One (journal app) and Onyx (system cleaner). I have yet to find a mac app besides those two that win over the default load out.

Definitely one of the things I REALLY dislike about my Windoze machines. I'm always having to download third party applications or buy software, when my Mac has that exact same functionality built in!

Firstly, does anyone else find it strange/silly that there are two calendar based apps? Meaning whatever happens, you're not going to use at least one of them.

I've never seen the point in things like a 'home inventory' app or yet another notebook app.

Just seems like people are making these things to be cool and in with the latest trend. I guess I'm not the kind of person who wants to have every second of my day planned and can cope with a whiteboard and notepad! I get so much more satisfaction at being able to physically cross out or wipe off a task when its done.

Actually, the two apps do different things, so you might definitely do both.

BusyCal is a replacement for iCal. Some folks like it a lot more than iCal.

Fantastical is an app that you would use with either calendar. It gives you a menu bar icon that lets you look at your calendar quickly, and has a great freeform text entry of events. It's sort of like Lion's quick entry where you can say "Have lunch Friday evening at DeCecco's" but it will show you what pieces go into what fields as you type so you know it's right.

I don't have BusyCal, but I do have Fantastical and love it.

I ended up buying the MacUpdate bundle. I was interested in the Labels program and the fonts. I've used TTPro's predecessor and it was decent. I might find a use for the others.
