The thing I don't get is why there are times when we barely see any bundle and months when there are 5 of them at the same time. It doesn't make any sense for a small company to offer a bundle while bigger competitors are offering theirs.
Who's gonna buy this when MacUpdate, MacLegion and BundleHunt's bundles are up?
Anyway, I wish you the best of luck with your sale.

Wupper wondershare is a well known spammer and scum bag.

These apps are not worth the time if they were free.

I dunno...I bought MacLegion and BundleHunt and I'm perfectly willing to buy any compelling bundle out there. However, MacUpdate's and this bundle just don't appeal to me at all. If MacUpdate had thrown in either Parallels or Fusion along with Toast, I would have bought that, too (I know, not likely to happen.)

Anyway, if another great bundle comes along, I'd definitely bite.

Very true.

For those unfamiliar with this these sorts of companies will usually make cheap software (usually utilizing one or more free/open-source tools, like ffmpeg, without giving credit) with a basic GUI, then sell them for far beyond a reasonable price. Ask them about it and they'll usually flatly deny using the libraries while giving you a sad story about how hard it is to do what they did.

The fact that even one of these apps is in this bundle, let alone every single one, is enough to make me question MacBundleStop's business ethics. Before you run a bundle, make sure you know the companies. And regardless, doing a single bundle with all products from one company looks very, very bad.

Hi all, I'm Bob DeMoulin from Wondershare and would like to clear the air on a few points.  While it's true that Wondershare did engage in some bad behavior in the past, the company has turned a corner and is producing some very high quality Windows & Mac apps and coming soon some new iOS apps that are very cool.  If you take a look on PC World.com, Lockergnome.com and other well respected media sites you can see Wondershare products are reviewed favorably and we have hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers and Millions of positive comments.  Regarding the open source issue; we have in fact released our open source code for those products where open source components were used, please search and see for yourself.  Wondershare is advertising in legitimate media outlets and I'm unaware of any spamming going on now, but if I'm wrong please point it out.  As the new General Manager for Wondershare in the US, I welcome your comments and feedback, and ask you to give the company a fresh look.  Thanks!  Bob

So what do you call having dozens (or hundreds) of websites, all offering the same products under different names and different prices?

I'm not sure MacWorld would agree with that - http://www.macworld.com/article/153685/ … mmers.html

Are you still spamming their editors for reviews?

Me again, that MacWorld article is old news.  Since then we have hired an actual PR agency who is having good success in getting honest-to-goodness editorial reviews.  PC World recently published a review of our MobileGo app and MacWorld is reviewing one of our PDF editing products.  As I said, we've turned an important corner here and spamming is no longer happening.  For photography enthusiasts.....keep an eye out in the iTunes store in the weeks ahead for a very cool new camera app.

Please differentiate Wondershare products from iSkySoft products.

Agreed here.
Also, a whois on Wondershare and iSkySoft is very telling. Miah can probably dig up some very useful info there… wink

This is what I was asking before but he chose to not answer it. iSkySoft is just one of dozens of "companies" with the same products as Wondershare. http://oncallnerd.com/blog-spam-hunt/ has a list of many of them, but it hasn't been updated in a while and there are much more now.

Also, the spamming has not stopped. I can attest to it from comments posted on my own website, which is why I never write about Wondershare "deals" anymore.
