If anyone took the time to add up the apps' prices (like I did), they do not add up to $609--it's actually $481. They should try not lying and include better apps that came out in the last 5 years!

The $609 includes Live Interior 3d Pro which is $129.95 - the advertised price is correct for the 12 apps.
