Everyone likes getting something for nothing, especially when there's no or relatively few catches. Freebie Friday is the post where the MacNN staff find stuff that you can get, and possibly make use of this weekend, without spending a single penny. The freebies this time include a bunch of free apps for your Mac, and from the App Store, a tactical top-down game based in space for you to download.
If you have recently acquired your first Mac, you may need a bit of help getting some apps for it. On MacNN Deals, the Mighty Mac App Bundle
provides a collection of ten apps that you may find extremely useful. The collection includes iTunes Converter, WinX DVD Ripper, Synergy, AirRadar, Window Tidy, Autograph Signature, ZipZapMac's Memory Cleaner, Invisible, Yummy FTP, and Privatus Automated Privacy Protection.
Also available for free from the MacNN Deals store is LEAW's Blu-ray Player
, a tool that allows you to not only play back Blu-ray movies, but also ISO files and other formats, complete with support for various popular audio technologies. If you like ebooks, consider Epubor Ultimate for Mac
, a tool for converting your reading material from one format to another, so you can move your digital library between multiple devices.
The current Free App of the Week on the App Store is Space Marshals
, an episodic story stars Burton, a specialist the player must control to hunt down fugitives following a disastrous prison break. This is a top-down tactical game where players can use their environment to their advantage to defeat enemies, by out-flanking them, taking cover, or moving covertly.
Also available at no charge on the App Store is Rainbow
, a software keyboard that you can customize to the color you want. Calendarium
is a calendar app that also provides fun facts associated with each day. Lastly, Kalculator
is a calculator for your iOS devices that can perform complex calculations and stores your operation history.
