Black Friday bundle: Hype, iStat Menus, and Screens for $29

[Tweet : nvALT]

I don’t promote a lot of bundles — at least relative to the number I get notified about — and I leave gathering the best Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals to the bigger sites. But Creatable happens to be really great at asking those of us who link them what we’d like to see offered, so I’m excited about this deal.

The Black Friday Bundle only has three apps in it. And they’re all apps I can highly recommend.

Hpye 3 is a keyframe-based editor for HTML5/CSS animations. It has all the features you’d need, and makes animation tasks that normally require a lot of code into simple keyframe and drag transitions. You can also get Hype Reflect for previewing live on iOS.

iStat Menus 6 is pretty much the de facto standard in system monitoring tools. A customizable collection of charts and indicators that sit in your menu bar, reporting on stats such as CPU, GPU, network, and disk usage, and it can even do weather, calendar and time management tasks.

Screens 4. I love Screens 4. As a VNC (Remote Desktop) client for connecting to remote machines, Screens has been the my favorite 3rd-party tool for a long time, on both Mac and iOS. Version 4 added a few features that were notably missing versus Apple’s default screen sharing app, including drag-and-drop file transfer support. It also got a speed boost, resulting in reduced screen lag and ultra-sharp image.

The usual cost for all three of these is about $100. This bundle is priced at $29.99. It’s a good deal no matter how you look at it. If you need at least 2 of these apps, this would be a good time to buy.
