    ok it's $97 and change now but $100 looked better in the title :D


    the only thing I bought so far is the bettersnap tool which was $1.99. it's pretty much the snapping feature thats found in windows 7. absolutely essential imo and should've been a feature in lion already.


    anything else you guys recommend?

    Possibly a little known fact:

    You can spend that credit on the iTunes store.

    :cool:

    If You Really Are Stuck

    I'd be happy to take it off your hands:) Lot's of good stuff out there though. What do you use? Hobbies and interests are well covered, and as mentioned in the previous post, you can redeem in iTunes too.

    2nd the recommendation on Galcon Fusion

    Also consider Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies if you're looking for some games. Maybe Aperture?

    Aperture

    Gets my vote, but it's really for keen photographers The updated version includes iCloud support too. It'll chew up most of the OP's credit though!

    You could always use it to purchase more iCloud storage.

    He has a virtual credit for iTunes & the Mac app store.

    Like the previous poster mentioned, if you find the iCloud storage handy, then you may want to look into buying more space.

    Do you have an iPad or any other iOS devices? You can use it on the iOS app store as well; plenty of cool games and apps there.

    If you want a really neat calendar/life manager, I highly recommend "Things". It won the Apple Developer award a few years ago and its very handy, especially if you have the iOS version as well.

    Cheers!

    -pages (20)
    -keynote (20)
    -angry Birds (5)

    I just bought Pixelmator for $30, since version 2 is supposed to come out soon and I heard it'll be $60, or a free upgrade for users of version 1. I use it the same way I used Photoshop, but for a fraction of the price.

    You should also check out Reeder- it saves a ton of time, and it's a slick way to read all of your daily websites.

    +1 for the 1Password recommendation.


    depending on what you do for work, some more "expensive" apps that I recommend:

    OmniFocus (Getting Things Done app), works well with an iPhone counterpart
    MindMap Pro
    Mavis Beacon (teaches touch typing)
    OmniPlan (project management app)
    Scrivener (writing app)
    Daisy Disk (visualized HD space)
