App Deal Whale for Mac
Like any other store, the Apple Mac App Store provides new deals every day: to make the most advantageous purchases make sure that you always learn about the available discounts in time. App Deal Whale is a small Mac OS X status bar menu app that can prove to be a great tool in this situation.
Since the app is actually a menulet, it will stay out out your way most of the time. However, by default, App Deal Whale displays notifications when a new deal arrives and you can press on the status bar menu icon to reveal a panel that includes the latest deals organized in a list.
Of course, these notification can be disabled via the App Deal Whale Preferences window or you can choose to receive them only once a day. The same area also allows you to apply various filters to your list: you can choose to view all app deals, only the good / best deals, only the apps that have become free or all that have a discounted price.
For your convenience, you can have the App Deal Whale application launched at login: this way you will receive notifications about the available deals without having to interact with the application unnecessarily.
What’s more, you can sign up for an AppStream account free of charge and create your own watchlist: if the current discount is not satisfactory, you can monitor the app further hoping the the developer will offer a better price at a later time.
Note that App Deal Whale also comes with Facebook, Twitter and Google+ integration: you can easily share the discount news with your friends via your social media accounts.
To conclude, App Deal Whale is a small but very efficient application that can be used to track the best Mac App Store deals from the commodity of a status bar menu.
