    The third week of Apple's "Get Stuff Done" Mac App Store promotion began today, dropping prices on a new set of apps. During the first week of the promotion Apple discounted several task management apps, and last week, several organizational apps went on sale.

    This week Apple is highlighting apps that fall into the Mac Utility category, such as login-saving app 1Password and popular calendar app Fantastical. Here's a full list of this week's sale apps along with pricing information:

    -1Password: $24.99 down from $49.99 [Direct Link]
    -Fantastical: $9.99 down from $19.99 [Direct Link]
    -PopClip: $2.99 down from $4.99 [Direct Link]
    -Soulver: $12.99 down from $19.99 [Direct Link]
    -Snagit: $24.99 down from $49.99 [Direct Link]
    -Clarify: $14.99 down from $29.99 [Direct Link]
    -mSecure: $9.99 down from $19.99 [Direct Link]

    Holy crap when the hell did 1Password become so expensive? I remember picking it up in one of the first MacHeist bundles for $45, which included Pixelmator and a bunch of other decent apps. Even the non-promo version of 1Password wasn't THAT expensive.

    I dont quite understand why people will pay that much for it, especially given there are a number of free ones now.

    No iWork?

    One would think Apple might discount Apple's own "get stuff done" apps...

    Yupp, pretty greedy folks if you ask me.

    Anyways, anyone should try PopClip.
    Can't imagine being without it anymore. In fact... It should be an OS X feature.
    Yes, it's that awesome. Totally love it, saving me tons of clicks and key presses.

    I already own most of these apps that have been featured in the promotion. :eek:

    PopClip is absolutely amazing though.
  6. macrumors 65816


    Yeah that's really the only thing stopping me from buying it. Sure, right now it's 25 bucks, which in reality, isn't that much, but it's no something I absolutely need. If it was around 5 even 10 bucks I would buy it in a second. But regularly 50? No way.
  7. macrumors 65816


    Ah, yes, let's hope this goes better than their 'Stop Being so Goddamn Lazy' promotion.

    1Password is phenomenal. I've had it since a bundle and have bought upgrades. It is extremely useful. At that price it is a steal. And the iOS companion app for iPhone and iPad that syncs via dropbox is very handy to have when you are traveling or otherwise mobile.

    Perhaps people don't want to rely on free apps for their sensitive data? :rolleyes:

    Anyone have feedback on Dropzone? That is the only one I don't have that I think I would use.

    SnagIt is, IMHO, overrated. I prefer Skitch (version 1, before Evernote destroyed it).

    mSecure I got during the Christmas sale and have to say am impressed with it.
  11. macrumors 603


    Because it works. Free is good long as your time is.


    Love PopClip and want to use it more.
  12. macrumors 603


    1Password is great. I've tried others, but 1password is better. There's also the mobile app too which compliments the desktop version.

    1Password has always been $39+.
  13. macrumors 6502a

    Just bought PopClip and Yoink.
    Both of them look really useful, as does Dropzone, but I'm not sure I'll utilize it enough to spend $5

    1Password is even better now with iCloud syncing. So much better than the dropbox syncing. Very easy to keep everything in sync; I couldn't imagine using a different password solution.
  15. macrumors 6502a


    Ill stick with my SplashID password app. Cheaper, and works well
  16. macrumors 6502a

    A Hebrew

    and 1Password has officially been purchased.
  17. macrumors 6502a


    Developer said on Twitter there will be an upgrade fee to Version 4 that is due to be released soon for Mac. I hope you knew that before you purchased version 3.
  18. macrumors 6502a

    That's wildly douchey since they've been saying for months that the App Store version gets a free upgrade to 4, and even have it on the website.

    I’d say... It should cost a couple of bucks.

    PopClip is probably the best thing I bought in the last 12 months. So great. Make sure you check out the plugins on the devs website.

    Dropzone seems like a good idea but I rarely use it.

    Fantastical is really nice but even at $9.99 its a little expensive. Some people love it.

    So even after you buy 1password for $25 you have to buy the iOS app for $18? How does it work when you are on say a work computer and you need to get onto amazon and your password is at home? Do they have a web locker?

    I have SplashID as well, but everyone always talks about the wonders of 1Password. Are there any real advantages?
  24. macrumors 68000


    Glad I waited

    Picked up the iOS version of 1Password last week whilst it was on sale, and now the Mac version comes on sale.

    About €20 seems a top price to me, for such an App. :D

    Unfortunately, 1Password for Mac still does not have iCloud syncing. I bought this last week along with the iOS versions and the Mac version is sorely missing it. Read the recent reviews. People are mentioning it.
