Get all tooled up with the Humble Lifehacker Software Bundle

Posted by Firefly in Misc |  

Humble Bundle have unveiled their latest bundle, and unlike the usual game-related bundles that tend to be offered (not counting the Book bundles of course, which have had many different subjects including a lot that were non gaming-related), on offer this time are a a variety of utilities that aim to make your PC usage easier and more secure.

The lowest tier of $1 or more gives you keys for text expander software Breevy, shaded desktop area application Fences, wallpaper and screensaver customisation application DeskScapes (with both Fences and DeskScapes being by Stardock) and file manager (Windows Explorer) replacement Directory Opus 12 Light (albeit not a full replacement – see Light vs Pro).

Paying more than the average (which at time of writing is $7.49) also unlocks a key (a choice of either regular or Steam) for multi-monitor taskbar application DisplayFusion, a key for a 1-Year Subscription to cloud-based password management application LastPass Premium (limited to new users only) and a key for a 1-Year Subscription to Virtual Private Network (VPN) service CyberGhost (limited to new users only).

For the top tier of $15, you get keys for a 1-Year Subscription to system backup software Acronis True Image 2017 and a 1-Year Subscription to antivirus software Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2017.

As with any other Bundle (except the Humble Monthly Bundles), you have a choice of where your money goes to, with the Charities in place on this occasion being the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Child’s Play Charity and a charity of your own choice.

There are just over 13 days, 6 hours and 15 minutes to grab this bundle at time of writing, so be sure to do so at
