Free is good, right? It is better to give than to receive, right? All that glitters is not gold, but free gold still glitters. Alright, I made up that last one.
Unless you’re reading Mac360 for the pithy writing style, you’re a Mac user who knows a good bargain when you see one. Sit back and let our resident Value Vixen™ show you how it’s done, son. It’s time to let freedom ring. The truth shall set your Mac free.
The Best Things In Life Are Free
Our Macs are not free, though we consider them to be a good value, even when compared to lesser priced Windows PCs that last a mere year or two. Likewise, many popular Mac apps are not free, either.
However, free templates for our Mac’s most used apps makes the heart rejoice.
What’s not to like about a Mac app with something to enhance the experience but at no cost to you? Get ready, ‘cause here it comes. Freebies. Goodies. Good freebies.
If there’s only one additional link you click in your browser for the rest of the day or this week, make it a click to Jumsoft’s Goodies page. Why? Must I repeat myself? Freebies. Goodies. Good freebies.
Jumsoft is a Mac apps developer with a whole stable of commercial apps with good reputations. There’s Money to manage your money. Duh. Relationship manages your customer contact info. And Process manages, uh, well, your processes.
These apps are all well and good and commercial. But what you really want is the good stuff—the freebies. Click to the Goodies page.
Gimme The Good Goodies
If it’s true that the best things in life are free, and these Goodies are free, then Mac users are truly blessed. Especially if you use Mail on your Mac. Or, iWork on your Mac.
Keynote – The goodies include a set of 500 high quality photo backgrounds and still life images for Keynote. It’s a free way to spice up your presentations without depleting your checking account.
Numbers – Everyone talks about spreadsheets but no one does anything about them. Numbers Templates ends that with nine templates that are already constructed and ready to use—lists, tables, charts, eye candy. And free.
Mail – Yes, Virginia, there is boring email, but with Mail Stationery you can end the hum drum of boring messages with a kit of 10 spectacular templates for, well, 10 special occasions.
Keynote #2 – If photos are not enough to spice up your Keynote presentations, try the Keynote Objects—a bunch of high quality 3-D objects to drag and drop into your Keynote pages, so, well, you know, you can look all professionally and such.
Keynote #3 – Keynote is the Mac user’s presentation app of choice, and Apple generously provides us with a bunch of classy templates.
The same templates that everyone else in the known Keynote universe uses. Think Different with 10 more Keynote Themes to stand apart from the madding crowd of Keynote users.
Sandvox – No freebie package is complete without an odd man out. Sandvox is a Mac web page builder that’s more capable than iWeb, so Jumsoft created a few Sandvox templates to show their love for other Mac folks.
The Goodies features six free packages to help enhance your Mac life. It takes a single click to the Goodies link to see all six, and then, well, six more clicks to download each. Outside of the time and effort there’s no additional cost.
Templates are all well and good, of course, and a decent way to get started using some of iWork or enhance your Mac’s Mail, but I’d like to see other goodies, too. Goodies for iWeb, so, you know, your web page doesn’t look like the other 30-million Mac users’ web pages.
Or, maybe a dozen Garageband templates to help get you started on a music production career. Or, maybe some photo templates of family members for iPhoto, so lonely Mac users can print them out and put them on the refrigerator door so visitors will know you have a family that loves you even though they live in a galaxy far, far away.
I’m so thrilled that Jumsoft provides Mac users with such a bonanza of freebies that I’m sending them a package of Mum-mums baby snacks to show my appreciation. My kids will never miss ‘em.
