Blah blah Macheist 2, blah blah bundle blah blah January. Malcor, hoax, disappointment. Charity 25%, bargain Shareware, controversy, variously upset and happy developers, blah blah blah. $200,000 raised for "important causes": United Way Int'l, Direct Relief Int'l, AIDS Research Alliance, PreventCan...

Graphic Converter from Lemkesoft is an arguably under-appreciated photo editor and basic organizer for Mac OS X. Provided free on some (maybe all?) Macs that Apple ships, it is a quietly powerful app for performing a good number of photo editing and basic retouching, and it even includes a basic ...

One of the appeals of MacHeist that a few participating developers cited for their participation is residual sales. Things like upgrade licenses, extra plugins and add-ons can all be big boosts to a 3rd party developer's revenue, and some of MacHeist's participating devs have certainly hit the groun...
