Today's deal is for The Complete iOS 8 + Swift Developers Course (Pre-Order) from Bitfountain, a $998 developer course that you can preorder through our deal for $79. This is a learning-by-doing course designed to teach you how to code for iOS 8 using Apple's new Swift developing language. It includes more than 350 videos with 36.5 hours of content. During the course, you'll make 14 iOS 8 apps and learn how to connect with third party APIs, use Appel's graphical interface builder, work with core data, and a lot more. The course will be released once Apple releases iOS 8 to the public, and this preorder price makes it inexpensive.
We have a great deal on macTuneUp and DiskTools Pro from Macware today. Regularly priced at $110, you can get them through our deal for $24.99. macTuneUp keeps your Mac running fast and it can fix problems with your system, too.

This deal ends in 4 days.
If you're like me, you sing in the shower and fancy yourself as sounding super awesome. It's a pain to pipe music into your bathroom—you know, because you need a backing track—but Bluetooth has changed that. We have a deal today for a Bluetooth speaker that has a suction cup on the back, is water resistant, and was designed for use in your shower. Better yet, it has a built-in microphone that allows you to use Siri to control music playback in the midst of your shower! Through our deal, you can get it for $39, a substantial discount from the $99 retail price.
I have a deal for Mac gamers today, The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy Bundle. This is three games, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. That's a lot of first person shooting fun, and you get all three titles for US$39.99, and it's half the retail price. The games come via download through Steam, so you won't have to wait long after buying the bundle to start playing.
I've gathered 37 different Bitcoin "faucets"—websites that pay out free Bitcoins just for loading up a page full of ads—and tested them to make sure they actually pay out. I started off with eight sites, but this update adds several more and removes some faucets that have gone dark for a total of 37 different Bitcoin faucets that really pay, plus a Dogecoin faucet and a Litecoin faucet.
Hey iPhone photography enthusiasts, I have a cool lens for today's deal. Called the Super Fisheye Clip-On Lens, it offers you 235° of image for a super fisheye effect. As the name suggests, it's a clip-on lens, and it's designed to work with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch (with rear camera), and even HTC and Samsung Android smartphones with rear lenses. It's made of aluminum and glass, and it has a focal length of 0.2x. The regular price is $49, but thanks to our friends at StackSocial, we're able to offer it for $29.
We have another bundle for animators, the CrazyTalk 7 Pro Super Bundle for Mac. This is the professional flip side to the CrazyTalk Animator bundle we ran a few weeks ago, and it includes CrazyTalk 7 Pro for Mac, the Bouncy Buddies Character Pack, the Auto Animation Library, Organic Auto Motion Samples, and the three hour CrazyTalk 7 Training Video. CrazyTalk 7 is for serious animators with a focus on facial animation. The bundle has a retail price of $235, but through our deal, you can get it for $99.95.
Longtime readers know that I love toys, especially when they're controlled from my iPhone or iPad. Check out the SmartPlane, a biwing airplane that can be controlled from most iOS devices and some Android devices. It uses Bluetooth LE (Bluetooth Smart) for controlling, and the company said pairing is easy from the custom control app. It works with iphone 4S or newer; iPod touch 5th Gen or newer; iPad 3rd Gen or newer; iPad mini. On the Android side, you need Bluetooth Smart and Android 4.3 or newer. There's a video showing the plane in use, but please don't be that guy that buzzes passersby. Through our deal, the SmartPlane is $49.99.
