[prMac.com] Edmond, Oklahoma - Two Dollar Tuesday launched a Mac App Store mini-bundle today, with three top-ranking Mac App Store apps available for 60% to 90% off - only $1.99 USD each. Each application has at least a 4.5 star average rating in the Mac App Store, and is regularly priced at at $4.99 to $19.99 USD.
The apps available in today's promotion include:
PandaBar (regularly $4.99) plays Pandora radio from the users Mac menu bar. Unlike other solutions, PandaBar does not require Adobe Air or Adobe Flash - it is a truly native Mac app. It also allows the user to use the Apple media keys to control playback, and supports Growl notifications and Apple remote controls.
Patterno (regularly $19.99) is a tiled pattern and background image generator for OS X. It allows the user to create repeating patterned images that can then be used as website or Twitter page background, desktop wallpapers, and more. It includes over 70 templates to use as a starting point, with features like gradients, sunburst-style rays, stripes, bokeh, repeating text and much more. To adjust the design, it is as simple as dragging sliders. Users can also import their own graphics objects.
Mousepose (regularly $4.99) is a tool for any user who does presentations or demos. When turned on, it dims the screen and puts a spotlight on the area around the mouse pointer, easily guiding the audience's attention to an area of interest. The desktop behind it remains functional, so that apps can be used while Mousepose is turned on. Mousepose 3 also allows the user to visualize the mouse clicks by drawing red circles around the mouse. And thanks to keystroke visualisation the audience is able see what keys are pressed.
All three apps are available from Two Dollar Tuesday, but unlike other deal sites, purchases are routed through the Mac App Store, so customers are getting the full Mac App Store deal.
Since Two Dollar Tuesday apps are available directly from the Mac App Store, users never have to remember or enter product serial numbers. "Customers prefer to purchase apps in the Mac App Store," says Two Dollar Tuesday founder Mike Dattolo, "Because they enjoy the convenience of having all their app purchases in one place, and they don't have to mess with serial numbers."
In addition to being consumer-friendly, founder Mike Dattolo says that Two Dollar Tuesday is beneficial to developers. "The hardest problem independent developers have to tackle is is obscurity - finding a way to get their apps noticed," he says. Since Two Dollar Tuesday apps are sold through the Mac App Store, the increased purchases help propel the applications up to higher spots in the App Store charts, making more people aware of them.
