MacHeist is back Posted on Monday, September 24th, 2012 at 11:06 am. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple It’s amazing how big this thing has gotten. Peter Cohen That’s what SHE said. Bob I’m still waiting till these guys are going to get their act together and finish mydreamapp. John C. Welch I have some bad news for you… JimD Any goofball could see that project was doomed from the start. John C. Welch Hey, it looks like they figured out you can have a fun, entertaining PR campaign and not be raging douches about it. Good for them! JimD Every year they’ve had MacHeist I’ve been introduced to a new app or developer that I eventually ended up purchasing more from – and that’s just the “freebies” they give out, nobody involved with the final bundle.The first MacHeist was my intro to 1Password. This year, I’ve already found Calendar Plus to be exactly what I was looking for.And thus far, the puzzles have been a lot of fun. Regardless of the whole “business model” argument over the years, you can’t say that the peeps behind MacHeist don’t put a lot of effort into it.
