MacUpdate Promo Spring Sale

Mac Heads take note: The new MacUpdate Promo Spring Bundle is here, and it brings with it $521.71 worth of apps for just $49.99.

Included in this promo bundle are top shelf apps like Parallels Desktop and TechTool Pro 5, along with apps like NetBarrier X5, Multiplex, RipIt, Paperless, Posterino, and MoneyWell. Plus, unlike some of the other bundle deals, these are all regular, full-octane versions of each app, so there’s no worries about updating or other maintenance needs.

If this sounds like a deal that you’d like to take advantage of though, then you better hurry, because there’s only about nine days left to grab one of your very own.

…Tap Tap Tap loves the iPhone?

iPhone Mosaic

To celebrate the 10,000+ apps now in Apple’s iPhone App Store, Tap Tap Tap put together a mosaic of the iPhone that uses the icons from each one of those 10,000 apps to form one giant iPhone.

It’s available on Flickr in its original size if you’d like to print out your very own copy, and definitely puts the number of apps currently available in perspective for those that have trouble grasping numbers with more than four digits.

…iPhone Apps are going to be amazing?

If you’re wondering what kind of capabilities and unique features iPhone Apps are going to have, look no further than OmniFocus and Schmap.

OmniFocus

OmniFocus is a professional-grade personal task manager that taps into the iPhone’s GPS to provide you with location based task lists.

OmniFocus Demo

At the store?

OmniFocus automatically pops up with the grocery list that you put together when you drive up.

Back at work?

OmniFocus automatically switches over to your list that you put together with work related tasks.

Neat, huh?

Schmap Logo

The second application, Schmap, which is actually a currently available web application, though it will no doubt be something that takes advantage of becoming a native App as well, uses the iPhone’s gyro sensor to automatically change the view based on how you are holding the phone.

Schmap Demo

Hold it vertical, and a list of available destinations pops up; but switch and hold it horizontal, and you’re automatically presented with a map of locations and additional information.

What will they think of next?

…iPhone Apps = Apple Games?

iPhone Doom

Food for thought: Despite the fervor surrounding Apple’s announcement today, and the thousands of rumors that have surfaced as a result, the biggest change to the iPhone is going to be an already announced feature: Apps.

Many of these apps are going to be games, and so far, it looks like many of the major game manufactures are on-board and developing for the new platform, which got me thinking; could these partnerships develop into full gaming support for Apple’s full-sized computers as well?

Gaming has long been a missing aspect of the Mac experience, but a few key converts could change all that, meaning the iPhone Apps could be a door for Apple to use to enter the lucrative gaming market that it needs if it’s going to continue its growth and market share acquisition.

Makes you wonder…
