MacUpdate is offering 9 solid Mac Apps valued at $131 for free. Normally, I’d throw in a “you get what you pay for” clause in here but there are some seriously useful tools on offer. Grappler is fantastic for pulling audio off the web. Backblaze for 3 months is way better than their normal 15 day free trial. Video Rotate, and SnapNDrag always helpful for correcting iPhone videos as are Color Strokes, LightFrame and PhotoBatch for images. Others here are great utilities (especially MacCleanse and Data Guardian).

Don’t forget there are 2 days left on MacUpdate’s Parallels 8/DevonTHINK 10 app bundle as well. Details below or at MacUpdate:
