MacHeist, usually known for making available a bundle of Mac applications at heavily discounted prices, is offering a smaller bundle absolutely free. With a retail value of $154, this nanoBundle is being offered free of charge, a departure from MacHeist's usual twelve applications at a discounted price. But, users will have to hurry as there are only six days remaining to get the deal.
Shovebox: Drag text, images, or URLs to an icon on your menu bar and Shovebox will save it for later.
WriteRoom: A simple, but powerful, text editor that provides users with a distraction-free writing environment.
Twitteriffic: A great desktop Twitter client by Iconfactory that is easy to use and saves important desk space.
TinyGrab: Simple screenshot sharing with the ability to automatically upload shots to an FTP server.
Hordes of Orcs: A tower defense game where players must build walls and defenses to save their town from infiltrating Orcs gone rogue.
And, once the nanoBundle has 500,000 participants, users get access to Mariner Write: "The easiest to use Mac word processor."
Simply provide MacHeist with your name and email address and they will give you a download page with all the necessary serial numbers for your software. It is quick and easy and worth a look if you are hanging out on your Mac this weekend.
