MacHeist nanoBundle makes great Mac software available for free

Mac users may be familiar with the great deals that have come from MacHeist. In this day of great software becoming available at insanely great prices, ranging from $0.00 to $40, rather than $400 to $1,000, the folks at MacHeist had the breakthrough idea of bundling a big bunch of great Mac titles, and making them all available at a greatly discounted price. Even me, the once and future free software advocate, has bought into that. And why not? You get as many as ten great programs for a small fraction of the price it would cost you to buy each one individually. Which you probably wouldn’t do anyway.

But now MacHeist has topped themselves. They’ve got six quality Mac titles, all available for free. (That’s free as in beer, not speech.) Five of the six titles are unlocked: ShoveBox (list $25), WriteRoom (list $25 — and I like this one!), Twitterific (list $15), TinyGrab (list $14) and Hordes of Orcs (list $25). The last, Mariner Write word processor, will be unlocked when they reach 500,000 registrants.

So if you’ve got a Mac running OS X, go for it! It’s a great way to get good software for cheap. What’s better than that?
