StackSocial launched its fifth 'Name Your Own Price' Mac Bundle earlier this week that offers up to nine apps and an online iOS development course for purchase with 10% of all sales going to charity.

nyopmacbundle5

There are two apps and an online iOS development course that all buyers receive:

MacX Mobile Video Converter ($50)
PDF Converter Pro for Mac ($80)
Projects in iOS E-learning Course ($147)

If a buyer pays more than the current average price shown on StackSocial's sales page for the bundle ($8.00 at the time of this post), the buyer will receive all nine apps offered which includes the three items listed above plus the following apps:

RapidWeaver 5 ($79)
Tune Up ($50)
CrossOver 13 ($60)
Disk Drill Pro 2.0 ($99)
Voila ($30)
Snapheal Pro ($40)
mSecure for Mac ($20)

The total retail value of the entire bundle is $807. To encourage higher purchase prices, StackSocial is giving away an 11-inch MacBook Air in a random drawing with entries earned by taking a position on the price leaderboard at any time during the sale. At the time of this post, the person in the top position on the leaderboard paid $94 for the bundle.

The bundle will be on sale until May 7.

I don't see what the complaints are with these bundles.
Sure the software isn't always top of the line stuff, but there is more often than not 'something' in there that justifies the price.

If you get in early you can always pick it all up for a few dollars, no more than a packet of cigs, beer or coffee (whatever your poison is.)

If you don't want it, then don't buy it.

The software developers need to make a living, why the hate?

Because we care. ;)

It is very easy for people to get suckered into these "deals", especially when they're posted by the big sites like MacRumors.

Developers don't need bundles to make a living. Software sells itself when it's actually good, and to the right people.

MacRumors is an affiliate partner of XXX.

This is what we want to see more often. We know this kind of thing happens here more times than it's acknowledged. And we are not against it happening. We are however against it happening without MR owning up to it in the article.

I'm glad MR did the right thing in this article. But can MR keep doing the right thing in all similar articles in the future?
The MacRumors editorial staff will always acknowledge if it's an article about an affiliate partner.

No. We always identify our promotional arrangements, and we don't post undisclosed paid stories.

If we think you'll be interested in a particular story about a Mac or iOS app, or a commercial product, site, or service, then we'll post it. But we've never posted ads that masquerade as stories, and we never will.

Is it worth $807 - obviously not; if it's too good to be true, it is. Is it worth the $10 I paid? Possibly... and if not, I've only lost $10. A couple of things looked of interest to me, and if they prove to be rubbish, no big deal. At least, that's the way I see it.
