UPDATE: THIS PROMOTION HAS NOW CLOSED.
Black Friday is almost upon us and we’ve seen a whopping good deal for Mac users. Parallels are currently offering 8 apps worth $519 for just $79.99 – and not just any apps. If you buy Parallels 11 for $79.99, they’re throwing in 1Password, Evernote Premium, Camtasia, Pocket Premium, PDFPen Pro 7, SnagIt and Parallels Access for free. These are all top applications and $79.99 is an absolute bargain when you consider to buy each of them separately would cost $519.92 in total – a massive 90% saving. If you’ve already got Parallels, you can upgrade to Parallels 11 for $49.99 and also take advantage of the offer.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you get:
Parallels: Definitely worth having if you ever need to run Windows on your Mac. Makes it incredibly easy to use Windows applications within OS X without rebooting.
1Password: Arguably the best password manager available for Mac – no need to mess around with multiple passwords. You’ll be amazed at how time saving this is.
Evernote Premium: An excellent note taking application that’s up there with OneNote. Organize your clippings, articles and brainstorm ideas more efficiently. We wrote a little about OneNote alternatives including Evernote here.
Camtasia: Brilliant app for recording video on your desktop. If you ever need to make screencasts or video on your desktop, it’s invaluable and easy to use
Pocket Premium: Excellent bookmarking application which allows you to bookmark and save articles on your Mac for reading later on your iPhone or iPad.
PDFPen Pro 7: If you’ve ever needed to edit or create a PDF document on your Mac, this is a brilliant tool which allow you to annotate and edit PDFs with ease.
SnagIt: One of the best screen capture tools around. Very powerful and makes it easy to take screenshots, edit them and annotate them.
