Cult of Mac Deals has done it again. You loved the last two “name your own price” bundles, so they’ve brought it back! This time, they’ve put together their best bundle yet!
Once again they’ve delivered 10 top Mac apps for a price that only you can name with The Name Your Own Price Mac Bundle 3.0! Headlining this bundle is Camtasia 2, an incredible screencasting app for Mac. Normally $99 by itself, you can get it along with CrossOver and 8 other apps for a fraction of the price! All you have to do is beat the average price of the bundle. Note: This deal ends at midnight tonight!
The new iPhones have arrived and there’s no time like the present to ensure that you protect your new device from wear and tear. Cult of Mac Deals has a great offer lined up for those who’ve picked up an iPhone 5S (or have an iPhone 5) so that they can protect from even the worst of scenarios.
Spigen has been developing some top-notch products (check out a review of one of its screen protectors here) and for a limited time we’ve got the latest offering from the company: The iPhone 5S Tough Armor Bundle - featuring the Tough Armor case & popular all glass screen protector (GLAS.t). And, we’ve got it for 50% off the regular price – just $36.99.
I spend a ton of time at the computer keyboard, typing consistently as I write post after post. But there are times when I like to get hands-on with another activity that I enjoy: playing guitar.
Now I’m not that great of a guitarist (I can handle myself sitting around a campfire and have learned to play quite a few tunes), so taking some instructional classes wouldn’t be all that bad of an idea. And doing so from the comfort of my home would be an even better idea. It’d be even better if I could take them whenever I wanted.
This offer from Cult of Mac Deals makes all of that possible. With The Complete Guitar Lessons Course you can learn how to play the guitar at your own speed for only $59 – a savings of 70%!
You know, sometimes we long for the days of the old handheld phone, where all we did was hold the handset up to you ear and simply spoke into the receiver…and not worrying about any kind of potentially harmful emissions coming from it as you did so. And just as recognizable as a smartphone is today, the handset on the phone was completely recognizable no matter where you were in the house or office.
Fast forward to today. We are now using our cell phones as our main phones, forgoing the use of land lines. But that doesn’t mean we should have forgo the benefits of what the old school phone had to offer. That’s where the ePure handset comes in. And Cult of Mac Deals has the ePure handset on sale right now for only $59.99 – a savings of 60% – and this offer includes free shipping!
I’ve got a Bluetooth speaker…and I love it. But when my family and I went camping this summer I left it at home. Why? Because I wasn’t convinced that the environment it would be in was going to serve it all that well. I could have used something more rugged, and even more versatile.
I could have used the Boombot REX.
With a ruggedized ABS housing, Boombot REX goes anywhere, but it also features full fidelity stereo sound, is water-resistant and plays for up to eight hours on a single charge – it’s built tough to withstand the demands of your active lifestyle. And Cult of Mac Deals has it for 23% off the regular price – just $99.99!
I remember playing Call of Duty a few years back, killing soldiers (and time) every other day. I was never all that good at it – especially playing against others – but I did have a lot of fun. Thanks to Cult of Mac Deals, I can get back to having that kind of fun again with The Call of Duty Bundle!
The bundle includes 3 Call of Duty games and 2 expansion packs for Call of Duty: Black Ops. And they’re downloadable through Steam, so if you want to use a Windows machine to game on then that’s no problem either. And the bundle only costs $39.99 – a savings of 69%!
The Mac has been aluded as a machine that can really help you get things done. As a convert from a Windows machine to a Mac, I can attest that I am definitely more efficient and effective with my work – and life. The Mac platform has a number of apps that are solid choices to help you get more productive, and Cult of Mac Deals has an offer that contains a few of them this time around. Now, you can get 16 mac apps for 90% off at Cult of Mac Deals.
Upset with how expensive Adobe Cretive Cloud is? Us too! That’s why we at Cult of Mac Deals brought you a solution. With Flux 4 you can easily build professional-looking website creation for only $49.99 (a savings of 64%). The interface is more design-oriented than “code-oriented”, which allows for a much easier learning curve than other apps in this space.
With the release of Adobe Creative Cloud, having Dreamweaver for $50/month is just too expensive! Flux 4 is the perfect replacement for design focused web design – agile, simple, and powerful. Plus, no coding is required! This deal ends tonight at midnight, so grab it while you can!
Gaming on the Mac got a whole lot better once Steam (by the fine folks at Valve) entered the equation. With the addition of this gaming portal, game development for the Mac rose to new heights, with games like Portal and others that were previously not as easy to port over to OS X becoming available.
Borderlands 2 is an example of one such game, and Cult of Mac Deals has it for $11.99 for a limited time [ends tonight at midnight!].
Every time a new iOS device is released, there’s going to be new adopters. With new adopters come new opportunities to create apps that appeal to them. iOS 7 is an all new look for the devices, and there’s a lot of new things to learn about it. This offer from Cult of Mac Deals and iOS Centric is going to help you learn everything you need to know about iOS 7 so that you can make the best use of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
This deal gives you a lifetime video subscription to iOS Centric – and for the low price of just $19.99. That’s a savings of 80%!
