A few times a year, MacRumors partners with MacUpdate to promote a Mac app bundle deal. MacUpdate's current bundle, which was released this morning and is priced at $49.99, features 10 apps with a total retail value of $480 if purchased individually.

MacUpdate has created a video providing an overview of all of the apps included in the bundle:

The full list of apps included is as follows:

- Toast 12 Titanium ($99.99)
- NoteBook 4 ($49.95)
- Tonality Pro ($69.99)

The first 8,000 buyers also receive Realmac Software's digital scrapbooking app, Ember, which has a retail value of $49.99.

Buyers have the option to purchase an optional plug-in for Toast 12 Titanium to add the ability to copy and burn Blu-ray discs for an additional $9.99.

The deal runs through September 28, and MacRumors is a promotional partner with MacUpdate. Bundle sales through links in this article benefit MacRumors financially and provide a way for readers to directly support this site.

I purchased the last bundle. I personally don't see this bundle being worth it. DVD burning is a thing of the past..

This bundle is totally worth it.

If you are a writer (academic or otherwise) Scrivener is essential!

So if you need Scrivener... and one other app... you already save money!

Titanium is a weak material and is only worth using when alloyed with other elements.

What other elements do I need to add in to make Toast a worthwhile product?



...stop naming things titanium.

You still have to buy a plug-in if you want to burn Blu-rays with Toast.

TIP: If you have the Toast 11 Plugin it is the same, you can use that plugin again I think. (I bought the plugin in the bundle and registered it with Roxio, and the licence shows as "Toast 11 HD Plugin" just like the Toast 11 plugin I had before.) You may need to reinstall/activate the plugin after installing Toast 12 though

Does Toast 12 add back the option to save images as ISO files? if not then its still of no use to me.

I think I've just renamed the .toast to .iso and had it work in the past.
I haven't tried this on compressed disk images, etc... just the vanilla toast file

For once I need a virtualisation software, MU decided to let me down and not include Parallels... ;)



Quite good bundle, though, which I won't get as I already own most of the apps.

If you are in academia, Scrivener+Bookends is a must.

Not really into Toast+DVD Ripper, but someone may find it useful.
Notebook is useful for academia as well.
