MacUpdate is a real site. They're one of the foremost Mac software sites outside of Apple.

Surely you jest!

Updating (or finding apps.) through MacUpdate is head and shoulders above using the app store!

Duff-Man says...Macupdate is very reputable. The do deals with assorted developers to offer discounts every day, and those bundles such as the one you saw are offered several times a year as well. I've bought several bundles and countless discounted apps through them, and watch the site daily for updates and new items - it's almost an essential tool for the Mac user....oh yeah!
