Scrivener from Literature & Latte is an amazing piece of software for writers. I've been using it for years for several fiction projects, including a novel—I can't imagine trying to organize any large writing project without it. John Martellaro reviewed it for TMO, and he loves it, too. The best thing, though, is that we have a deal on Scrivener for you today. It retails for $44.99, but through our deal you can get it for $19.50. If you've ever even thought about writing, you should get Scrivener today. This deal is good for OS X or Windows—there's a pulldown menu on the deal listing for you to choose which version you want, but our link goes straight to the Mac version.
Check out the Twist Plus World Charging Station, a global charging station for your MacBook and your mobile devices, too. It includes retractable prongs for the world's major voltage systems (hence the world charging), all made compact and portable through a twisting mechanism. It also includes four ports for your mobile devices around the twisting ring. That's clever. Through our deal, you can get Twist for $34.99. Check out the video on the deal page for more on that.
Smile Software is one of my favorite Mac (and iOS) software developers, and I'm delighted that we're able to offer you a deal on TextExpander 5 for Mac. This software allows you to create snippets of commonly used text and then call that snippet up with a few keystrokes. Use it and you'll love it. It retails for $45, but through our deal it's yours for $31. Check out the details on the deal listing.

I love this drone, the Code Black HD Camera Drone. I personally have the SD version, and it's a ton of fun. We have a deal today on the Limited Edition version with an HD camera. It's palm-sized, has a flight time of 10 minutes, and is a ton of fun. Through our friends at Stack Social, you can get it for $69, which is 65 percent off retail. Grab it while you can.
The Mac Power User Bundle features ten apps designed to make your Mac more productive and useful. Pay anything, even a penny, and you get two of the apps. If you beat the average price, you get all ten. And if you hit the top ten at any point in the deal, you get five entries in our iPad Air 2 giveaway. But, this is the last chance to get it, as it expires in two days. Check out the details on the deal listing.
Today we have a deal on the AluPen Digital Fine-Point Stylus for your iOS device. It will work with Android devices, too, if that's your thing. It features a retractable tip, and doesn't require Bluetooth paring or a special app. This stylus retails for $50, but through our deal you can get it for $34.95.
TMO contributor Jim Tanous has produced another exhaustive benchmark piece over at his own site, TekRevue. This one pits VMware Fusion 8 against Fusion 7 and Boot Camp, and Jim put together 15 pages looking at a series of performance areas, including methodology and a conclusion. This is a must-read if virtualization matters to you.
Check out the All-Inclusive iOS 9 & Swift 2 Course Bundle. This developer training deal includes the Complete iOS 9 Developer Course and the Complete iOS 8 & Swift Course. Separately they retail for $398, but through our deal you can get them for $49. Check out the deal listing for more details.
Check out this Mac app deal we have called Supercharge Your Mac Bundle. It includes 9 apps—Flux V5.5, Pagico, DeltaWalker Pro, Emulsion, SpotDox Pro, HydraPro, MotionComposer, PulpMotion, DiscLabel—all for $39.99. These productivity apps do everything from Web design, organizing, file management, animation, and moviemaking. The retail price for all of them would be $554, making our deal a bargain.
