A few times a year, MacRumors partners with MacUpdate to promote a Mac app bundle deal. MacUpdate's current bundle, which was released this morning and is priced at $49.99, features 10 apps with a total retail value of $480 if purchased individually.

MacUpdate has created a video providing an overview of all of the apps included in the bundle:



The full list of apps included is as follows:

- Toast 12 Titanium ($99.99)
- NoteBook 4 ($49.95)
- Tonality Pro ($69.99)
- Scrivener 2.5 ($44.95)
- Bookends 12 ($59.99)
- Mac DVDRipper Pro 5 ($24.95)
- NetShade 6 ($45.00)
- iStat Menus 5 ($19.00)
- SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition ($19.99)

The first 8,000 buyers also receive Realmac Software's digital scrapbooking app, Ember, which has a retail value of $49.99.

Buyers have the option to purchase an optional plug-in for Toast 12 Titanium to add the ability to copy and burn Blu-ray discs for an additional $9.99.

The deal runs through September 28, and MacRumors is a promotional partner with MacUpdate. Bundle sales through links in this article benefit MacRumors financially and provide a way for readers to directly support this site.

I purchased the last bundle. I personally don't see this bundle being worth it. DVD burning is a thing of the past..

Are these available through mac App Store? I have 2 MacBooks, will I need to purchase these twice or are they tied to apple ID?

This bundle is totally worth it.

If you are a writer (academic or otherwise) Scrivener is essential!

So if you need Scrivener... and one other app... you already save money!

I already have most of these. Nice selection of stuff.

They are tied to your e-mail and use a serial. Shouldn't have issues activating on multiple machines. I have Scrivener on three even.

Note that these don't have iCloud access.

I miss the days when at least 3-4 of the apps listed where useful.

Now its just cheaper to buy individually the ones I want, ie iStat Pro.

I rather have them offer 25 apps, and you pick 5 of the ones you want for $50.00

I remember when I used toast almost every day. I haven't made a DVD/CD in more years than I can remember.

Looking at that iStat update, so I'm interested. Have to usually find at least two other apps to make it worth the money though. Don't have a copy of Toast but I haven't had a need to make a disc since college.

Great timing. I was looking at purchasing Ember and iStat Pro so this works for me. I have not looked at the licensing, however does anyone know if I can use these apps on my iMac and MBP? Is there anything stopping me from doing this?

As a student this is useful for me right? Especially looking at the reference management software.

Notebook I don't like but I suppose I could get used to.

Does anyone still burn DVDs nowadays?

DVD's, CD's, BR's, lots of people still burn them for various reasons.
I like BR's as I burn critical files to them and go lock them away in my safety deposit box. I may be out of my time but I prefer that over "renting" cloud space for storage of critical things and I don't want those same things stored only on magnetic/electronic media.

There's still plenty of uses for many people. I also like Toast for how it handles disk images, mounting, etc...

This is a great bundle. I would buy it just for Scrivener, Notebook and Bookends, which are all great piece of software, if I already didn't have them. On second thought, I may buy the bundle so I have a spare copy of them.

You still have to buy a plug-in if you want to burn Blu-rays with Toast.

I tried to buy this, and the page just hangs on 'Processing...'

I guess there's a rush to get this?

Did it work? When I purchased it. It was hanging for about 10-15 seconds and went through. Wait it out I bit.
