Now that the application bundle has taken off as a common method of selling Mac applications, you can't go more than a few months without hearing about the latest software offering. Now, there's a new bundle in town called the Mac Bundle Box, which offers 15 applications for $50 and includes a few new applications to boot.
The big question is, of course, just which applications are included. First up, there are two games: the Risk-like iConquer and Mahjong Forests. Also included are photo organizer ShoeboxExpress, image editor Compositor, drawing tool Scribbles, and video capture application DreamCapture. If you like to tweak your Mac, the handy MacPilot makes an appearance, as does RSS application Headline. If you need to keep track of your money, there's… Money, and if you need to keep track of all the stuff that's in your head, you can use an app called Caboodle. Rounding things out are alarm clock Aurora, the Sofa Control remote control application, project planning program Operation, and last but not least, the distraction-free WriteRoom.
If you haven't purchased one of the other bundles that have been offered in the past few months, there's some good stuff in the Mac Bundle Box. Unfortunately, the Mac Bundle Box seems to be following the same formula as previous bundles have by offering certain categories of applications. Previous bundles have featured personal finance applications, "brain organizers," alarm clocks, games, image editors, and multimedia applications, so people may already have similar applications depending on what they've purchased in the past. Still, $50 isn't a bad price if you like a few of these apps, so give the Mac Bundle Box a look.
