My MacHeist Bundle

After writing about the new MacHeist Bundle, Jonathan Davies left a very interesting comment:

I wasn’t to impressed with the bundle, I already have most of the apps with the last Mac Heist so I don’t have much of a need to get the retail package – but I am looking forward to the next MH.

What apps would you like to see, Daniel, in the next MH?

I did offer a response in a comment, but I’d like to elaborate on the subject much more.

Wouldn’t everyone like to see $3,000 USD Apps bundled together for $49 USD? C’mon now, who wouldn’t? Adobe CS3 being part of MacHeist Bundle is an amazing selling point. You combine applications and tools like these, and not only does this help MacHeist, but it of course helps Adobe.

MacUpdate is holding its own bundle, but of course, MacHeist is cheaper.

Here are some other apps I would like to see in the next MacHeist Bundle:

  • VMWare Fussion — Get the best of both the Mac and PC worlds with VMware Fusion. With an intuitive Mac-native interface and a wide array of powerful features, VMware Fusion provides the most seamless way to run Windows applications on your Mac.
  • Sound Studio 3 — The audio recording and editing application that I use for all my recording needs. Easy to use, and gets the job done. MacUpdate is selling this app in their bundle, but MacHeist would do better 🙂
  • Final Cut Express from Apple — Apple’s powerful moviemaking package now supports the latest AVCHD cameras, features an open format Timeline, provides iMovie ’08 compatibility, and offers sophisticated effects and filters. I use this for movie editing, and I think its great!

This is just a brief list, but as you can see, MacHeist Bundle can definitely do some good with these applications. At this point, we can only wait and see what the MacHeist Team comes up with next.

What do you think should be in the next bundle? Let us know in a comment below.
