Seems functional enough, but 1) the entries seem to be manually added (today the deal it reports from MacZOT is not the deal actually offered there); and 2) there's no convenient way to close the app and get it out of the menu bar (you have to kill the processes the hard way). Also, the drop-down window frequently sticks and is difficult to get rid of.

It would be useful to have a way to mark bundles as checked out already, since I don't always remember from day to day what I've already looked at.

This is the first app I look at each day, I find it to be extremely easy to use and the bundle info is in one place. Great app and I look forward to seeing its continued development.

There is no uninstall that I can see. If the developer doesn't reply with an uninstall update or directions to uninstall then I will have to rate this app with a single star. I would rather not, but if they are not actively responding to posts here then that would be another reason to rate it low.

Sorry for the delay. Do uninstall, quit the app first from the context menu in the deals list (open the deals, right or control click). Then you can just move it to the Trash.

To get the fastest response for feature requests and comments, please use the feedback mechanism inside the app or on the website as I check here only so often.

I think this application could be very popular if you also add mac app store app store deals that are ridiculously good, like free for a day or something like that. There are so many "deals" that listing them all is not worth it and would clutter the app but to mention major one day, few hour, events I think it's worth looking into, you could probably have devs give deals right through the app if it gets popular. Nice job overall but I'd like to see single apps not just bundles too. Maybe just me... Keep it up!

For the Mac App Store daily discounts and free deals, check the recently released Store News app from Christian Kienle. Available through MacUpdate here: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/36713/store-news or through the official website: http://store-news-app.com/.

If you run a 32-bit Intel Mac, please read the MacUpdate comments before installing.

It would be nice if that were added to THIS app, even if Store News has it.

Mid-courses aren't always a good idea. But I might be happiest with a pop up for a bundle, but a icon color change for a daily deal. Daily deals happen... daily. That's a little too often for me to have to deal with a pop up.

There are more bundles than I'd care to track myself, more than DealMac picks up. So your whatever-it-is is useful.

A good start but needs a little work. Rather than a LARGE and ANNOYING (and difficult to dismiss) notice that a new deal has been found, why not just change the icon color (a la MUMenu?).

Looking forward to seeing more bundles/deals added!

Yes, I've thought about simply changing the menu icon. I'll probably go for a compromise, offer both ways and make it configurable. -Rico

Very nice app. Good to have all the deals in one place.
Are you going to include support for other pages with bundles soon?

Yes, I try to list all current Mac bundles sites. I'm working on adding more daily deals as well.

Who is the developer of this program? The domain info is private and there is no real contact information on the developer's web page.

May I introduce myself: Mac Bundle Watcher is brought to you by Rico Gundermann from sunny Bochum, Germany. I added a link to the "about" page to the site. Thanks for pointing that out.
