StackSocial Offers 'Pay What You Want' Bundle for 10 Popular Mac Apps

by

StackSocial has launched a new "Pay What You Want" Mac software bundle, offering a selection of 10 apps to users who match or exceed the average payment price. Currently, the average price is at $5.56, significantly less than the $383 retail price for the apps, but it will go up as the sale goes on.

A payment higher than the average price earns users access to all apps, while smaller donations will unlock fewer apps. 10 percent of the proceeds from the sale will go to non-profit organization Creative Commons. A full list of apps included in the bundle is below:

- CrossOver 14 Mac ($59.95) - Lets Windows apps be run on the Mac.
- RapidWeaver 6 ($89.99) - Theme-based website development software.
- BusyCal ($49.99) - Calendar app for the Mac that replaces the default app.
- WinZip 4 Mac ($29.95) - Zips and unzips files.
- WALTR ($29.95) - Transfers and converts media files in any format to a format playable on iOS devices.
- RoboForm Everwhere: 1-Year Subscription ($19.95) - Cross-platform password management service.
- Scapple ($14.99) - Freeform mind-mapping software for jotting down ideas and finding connections.
- StuffIt Deluxe 16 for Mac ($49.99) - Compresses files to shrink size.
- Screens ($29.99) - Virtual network client (VNC) and screen sharing app that gives remote access to multiple computers.
- Find Any File ($7.99) - Spotlight alternative for searching through files.

To encourage higher purchase prices, StackSocial is giving away an iPad Air 2 through a random drawing. Entries are earned by paying a high enough price to make it onto the price leaderboard at any time during the sale. The top payment at the time of this post was $45.

StackSocial's "Pay What You Want" bundle will be available for purchase until September 5.

I'm surprised to see WinZip 4 Mac and StuffIt Deluxe in the same bundle. Wouldn't one or the other be good enough? They both compress/uncompress files, have cloud service connections, offer encryption, etc.

It doesn't hurt to have more tools at your disposal, but it might have been more useful to include some other kind of utility in place of one of these.

WALTR alone made it worth it for me, everything else was a cherry on a cake :)

I even used that 10% discount for $0.56 off the order, Don't Judge me! :p

The default option is "beat the average price". [ ... ]
So either click "beat the average price" or pay a higher price if you are feeling generous, and you will get all 10 apps

I paid $6 and got all the apps. As long as you meet/exceed the average you'll get the lot.

Thank you both for the explanation--I was a little confused with their graphics and the explanation they gave. This cleared it up.
