You’ve got a nicely curated collection of apps on your phone, but your Mac is likely feeling left out. The Pay What You Want 2018 Super Mac Bundle will give its application folder a shot of life with ten award-winning, critically acclaimed Mac apps for just a few bucks.
Here’s how it works: Name your price and if it beats the average price, you get all ten apps. If you beats the leader’s price, you get entered to win a Nintendo SNES Classic system. Even if you only have $1 to spare, you’ll still walk away with something great. But we think you’ll be willing to up the ante once you see what this bundle brings:
Spruce up your snaps
If your photos are looking a little blah, bring them to life with a pro-level HDR photo editor that Apple itself named an Editor’s Choice and a Mac App Store Best Of. Aurora HDR makes it dead simple to load in TIFFs, JPEGs, or PNGs — either single photos or multiple brackets — and craft stunning HDR images. You can even use the app’s library of editing tools to tweak your pics just the way you like them.
Take back the ‘Tube
Sure, YouTube will let you offline your favorite videos so you can watch them later. If, that is, you’re a subscriber to YouTube Red. For everyone else, there’s Softorino YouTube Converter. It lets you download and import YouTube videos right into iTunes on your Mac or iPhone — no internet connection required. You can import music videos as MP3s, or even offline movies in 4K. And when you’ve harvested all the free content YouTube has to offer, you can do the same on other platforms, since Softorino YouTube Converter works on Facebook, Vimeo, and Instagram, too.
Code like a pro
Love to develop and design websites, but hate when code editing apps trigger your ADD with confusing interfaces and annoying bells and whistles? Are you even still reading this? Hey, pay attention! We’re trying to tell you about skEdit, the robust yet simple web and HTML editor for Mac. This highly customizable app’s powerful snippet and code system, and intuitive automation features, let you work faster and smarter. skEdit also supports other third-party design tools, like Apache Subversion for source control management, and HTML Tidy for cleaning up your markup.
Dust off your drive
Just like your basement, your Mac’s hard drive has likely accumulated a lot of junk and dust over the years. But while your basement is probably not getting cleaned anytime soon, you can de-clutter your Mac in minutes with Movavi Mac Cleaner. It hones in on the redundant cache files, logs, app localizations, and image files that are clogging your computer’s arteries and flushes them into the digital ether with just a few clicks.
Make your mobile immaculate
Don’t stop your cleaning streak at your Mac. Get your iPhone spic’n’span too, with iCareFone. It provides one-click organization of your contacts, photos, apps, and music, as well as simplified management of your iPhone’s files. With iCareFone on the job, you can revive your sluggish iOS devices and beat back the threat of planned obsolescence for good (or at least until the next iPhone is announced).
Turbo-charge your transfers
You wouldn’t hire a narcoleptic babysitter. You wouldn’t let a dog drive your Uber. You wouldn’t commute to work on a tricycle. So why would you entrust your most important files to the mercy of slow, stubborn, inefficient FTP software? With Yummy FTP Pro, you’ll never have to. This acclaimed FTP/S, SFTP, and WebDAV/S file transfer app can guide your data from A to B with lightning speed and rock-solid reliability.
Bring your HD back from the dead
Do you have an old busted hard drive stashed away somewhere, in the hope that you can one day recover its data? Don’t worry, we’re not going to ask what’s on it. We’re simply suggesting that you use Disk Drill PRO 3 to resurrect it. This magical piece of software specializes in the recovery of documents, music, photos, videos, and even whole partitions that you assumed were long gone. All it takes is one click, and Disk Drill can locate and reconstruct over 200 file types.
Digitize your DVDs
DVDs have just about gone the way of the Dodo, so if you’re still holding on to your collection, it may be time to convert to digital. MacX DVD Ripper Pro is the premiere software for bringing your favorite movies from disc to your devices. Whether you want to watch on your iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, or Android Devices, this app will help you make the switch. It exports to a range of popular audio and video formats, decrypts copy-protected DVDs, and comes with editing tools so you can tinker with the footage you rip.
De-clutter your contacts
If you’ve got 27 Mikes in your phone and you can’t tell if you’re texting your boss Mike or your buddy Mike, it may be time to tidy up your contact list. ContactsMate 4 can help you do that in minutes. With this best selling contacts manager, you can import your address book via CSV or vCard files and sync them to all your devices with your cloud service of choice. It also makes it easy to view, add, edit, group or tag those contacts, and delete any duplicates you’ve accumulated.
Revitalize your writing
Even in the age of acronyms and emoji, spelling, grammar, and punctuation still matter. A single misspelled word on a resume can mean the difference between landing your dream job and landing in the reject pile. A missing comma can cause major corporations to lose millions.
