    Worth it for Evernote alone

    $29 for 15 months of Evernote Premium is worth it alone. I probably won't even download the rest of the crap.

    Yep, Evernote Premium is the best reason for getting this...

    I've liked Artboard, but I have it already so that's not much of a selling point...

    Scrivener is a really great application. I paid $45 for it a few months ago.

    Absolutely worth it for Scrivener and Evernote alone. And with NaNoWriMo just around the corner, now is absolutely the perfect time to buy.

    The only app that interests me is the PDF signer app... And it can be had for $10 on it's own.

    If you just need it to put your John Doe under some documents, Preview.app does it for free.

    I'm quite disappointed with the bundle. Not going to buy it this time. Some of the mission loot is fine, though.

    I like filling out applications and forms that come in PDF format. I once used an online service that did it and charged me a fee to print it. But the software seems like a much better deal.

    Scrivener, FTW

    Scrivener is a very nice app for writing of any kind: novels, nonfiction, papers for class, etc. The developer is working on an iPad app which will be available within the next 6 months or so.

    IMHO, Scrivener is vastly superior for Word/Pages/etc. for performing research and structuring your writing. That's about 90% of the job.

    Was hoping for a killer app like past bundles, which had VMWare or Parallels, but the "biggest" app for me personally (I don't do heavy writing, and I personally have zero use for Evernote, nor do I really understand its massive appeal) is the Disk management app, and thats not even really useful. Too many games and one-off novelty apps for me.

    I think I'll grab this bundle, Evernote alone pays for the rest. Anyone know If you purchase the bundle and the others become unlocked do you get them too? I've been looking to purchase Bioshock 2.

    What is so good about evernote? I don't understand how having all your documents in a different place from normal is easier to manage etc.

    Does MacHeist still ignore any customer questions/emails? I bought one of these bundles a while back and could never get an answer from them after numerous tries.

    yeah they ignore still.

    ----------

    it says after 25k bundles are sold all purchasers will get everything. so far it is about 6k

    What was the question? Did you read the FAQ? Did you post in one of their forums?

    Bit of a disappointing selection this time 'round. Nothing that jumps out at me.

    I would have preferred iDraw to Artboard. Can't find any info about Corel lite (seems they made it just for the bundle).

    I may still go for it if Bioshock is redeemed over Steam.

    Buying outside the Mac App Store

    Why? I don't have money outside my App Store account. So I can't buy any of such things, too bad.

    I use Scrivener professionally. It's an outstanding application for writing and I wholeheartedly endorse it. If you don't own it, the bundle is worth it for Scrivener alone.

    MacHeist 4 has been a long time coming but unfortunately this bundle is very underwhelming, IMO.

    The Strong Bad / Homestar Runner app (game) looks very cool. Loved their old web cartoons - didn't realize they had a game out until now. But the graphics and humor/attitude look loyal to the original toons. Around ~$30 -- so basically free with this bundle (if you we're already going to buy one of the other apps anyway).
