There are four more apps included in the bundle that will be unlocked based on the amount of money raised for charity (you get to choose from a selection of charities when you make your purchase).&nbsp; The four "to be unlocked" apps are WireTap Studio, BoinxTV, The Hit List, and Espresso.To be honest, the reason I jumped at the chance to grab this year's bundle was because of those last four.&nbsp; The Hit List will make managing my day a lot easier, and I am anxious to work with WireTap Studio and BoinxTV, but I really, really, want Espresso.&nbsp; I'm a code monkey at heart and Espresso is pulling my strings.</p><p>Why not jump over to MacHeist and grab a bundle for yourself.&nbsp; It's only available for 14 days, you'll be helping people in need, and you'll get some great applications to make your Mac even better than it is today.</p>
