20MacApps Pre-Launch Event

I know that you all like a good deal when you see one, especially when it comes to (heavily) discounted Mac application, so this may be of interest to you. The really interesting ‘twist’ on this initiative is that they are having all the applications and games devloped specifically for this promotion.

At least you know that you wont already have them, although I think you will have to accept a few early release issues along the way.

Anyway this is very much a PRE LAUNCH opportunity. They are after your cash now, but you wont get any of the new applications now, but you will get the chance to play Cowboys with the Billy Frontier game this holiday season!

Site Information

Welcome to the 20MacApps Pre-Launch Event

Welcome to the Mac bundle of 2008, which we guarantee you has no repeats. Here’s why. Every application in this bundle is brand new. We’ve commisioned 20 great Macintosh developers, some big, some small, to create 20 amazing applications and games that’ll help you to have fun, increase your productivity, and much, much more. All of these great games and applications will be available at just $20 each with a new application or game arriving every fortnight from the 1st Feburary.

But, if you buy now, you can get all 20 applications for the price of 2 applications – a saving of 90% off the RRP! Those are the kinds of prices that aren’t just hard to beat, they’re impossible to beat! Especially as all of the applications are exclusive to us!

But we know that you don’t want to spend $40 of your hard earned cash now and get nothing until Febuary, so we’re chucking in a couple of bonuses that we think you’ll enjoy. Firstly, every single prepurchase customer will get a free copy of the sensational Billy Frontier from Pangea Software. That’ll be with you within 3 days of purchasing this pre-launch deal.

Secondly, you’ll get every single application 1 day before everyone else if you buy during the prelaunch event, so you’ll be the envy of family and friends. And finally, if you’re US based and over 18, you’ll be able to enter into our BETA test program (100 places) and try these amazing applications months before everyone else! You’d be crazy to miss out on these amazing savings, and we DO plan to increase that price every day – at $40, we’re barely turning a profit!

  1. Thanks for the heads up on that. I’ve not long ago splashed the cash on audio software from Ambrosia and Rogue Amoeba, plus Visual hub for video. I don’t see anything on the list to tempt me. Seems like a good deal though

  2. Anyone have any further information about this supposed great offer? Its well into February and it seems a large number of people have been scammed out of their money.

  3. Thank you for the effort. I have attempted to do the same but without the courtesy of a response. I have also contacted PayPal since the 20MacApps site appears to be still accepting payment. Anything that you might be able to find out will be greatly appreciated.

  4. [quote comment=””]Sure. I have all Mark’s contact details so will chase him up :-)[/quote]

    Yeah, right. Mark’s a scammer, and you know it. So did you chase him up at all? Lemme guess, his AIM account’s down for maintenance and email’s gone to the cleaners.

    And your name is????? Don’t tell me you are one of these ‘big’ guys that diss other people from behind the safety of a made up name?

    Calling someone out from behind the safety of a ‘false’ identity is just not going to cut it with me I am afraid …….

    And please …… don’t even start to tell me what I know or do not know 🙂

    How about his point though?

    You didn’t do squat to contact your protege, did you? Now that the 20macapps site is gone, and all the other crap is exposed, all you can do is try to divert ppl from yr connection to this scammer.

  7. Yeah right …. and why exactly would I do that!

    Let me run this by you …… I posted my views on someone that hid behind a false identity to Yeah Right, so your response? errrr to hide behind a false identity. What an amazing lack of imagination, creativity, and should I say balls you don’t have!!!

    You know nothing about what I have or have not done. To call anyone my protege is incorrect and unadvisable, and could only come from someone that knows absolutely nothing about me.

    Yes I did contact Mark – I am a man of my word.

    No I didn’t hear back from him, and have not seen him online for a long time so I assume he has taken time out. Whatever he has or has not done he has certianly taken a hammering for it – although mostly from people with the balls to tell their name, unlike you who seem to have no brains, no balls and no creativity.

    Thanks for one of the more entertaining posts on the site 🙂

  8. Chris, as you gave us the heads up on this deal, did you also pay for it?

    It bothers me that bloggers promote a lot of stuff but I wonder how much of it is from an objective viewpoint.

    I’m glad I didn’t (it all seemed too vague to me, I mean there was no real description of what was on offer)

    Nope I didn’t pay. As you said earlier, nothing appealed really, and to be honest I get so much software through to review that my personal needs are very limited to apps that I currently have and use.

    All I did was post about something that sounded like it might be of interest to people from a press release I got off prMac.

  11. thanks for your honest and frank reply

    I do feel however that you should be more open about things that you promote. Maybe a disclaimer would help.

    No problem – when I review something it is obvious that I have used the product. When I get paid to do a feature I declare it as a paid for feature. From time to time I stick stuff up that catches my eye and I think may be of interest. This is just one of those. As you know from the post none of the Apps were even developed at the time so I felt it was pretty obvious that it was just a information post.

    Will make them clearer in the future though 🙂

  13. Has ANYONE seen the last issue of iCreate?? (To be exact, it is issue 52. And, IMO, one of the best magazines for the Mac and related creativity.) This is not some fly-by-night outfit, but a well known, well established, and very well respected magazine published in England.

    Anyway, back to the point, they too promoted 20macapps. From their cover to the CD. Now I’ve got no clue whether the person behind 20macapps has taken a brief respite, or has fled the country, but I’ll gurantee that if a magazine like iCreate can be “taken in”, then anyone can.

    So what if someone has an e-mail relationship to someone else! To call them a scammer too just because of that, even though they have already said they would try to contact them with no promises, is just craven. (Look it up in the dictionary. Fits nicely, I think.)

  14. Quite a few podcasters were taken in by it too. Maybe the lesson to be learned from this is the old saying: “If a deal looks too good to be true then maybe it is!”

    Obviously the guy saw how gullible mac users can be, and how much publicity his ‘offer’ would get by the mac press, podcasters and bloggers.

    By the way Chris, can you remove the quote default thing. It bugs me that I have to delete the quote from the l previous message in this dialogue pane before I post my own message.

  15. Would love to remove the quote thing – but can’t figure out how!!! It isn’t a default setting that you can change.

    Am digging around to see how best to cure it.

  16. [quote comment=””]It didn’t use to be there until a few weeks ago. Who put that code in?[/quote]

    Is the way it it with the Plugin. The plugin got updated recently.

    Will figure it out. I have the same Plugin on the AL site and that used to show the quote as well, but then it just dissapeared. Is a weird one 🙁
