When I was introduced to macZOT a few days ago, I was very excited. Seemed like a great site with an interesting twist. However, I realize now that MyzteryZOTs are not for me.
The deal was over $130 dollars in software for $15. What the software was, I didn’t know. It sounded like fun so I went for it.
Here is what I got:
- World of Where – Geography game that matches cities and state and other capitals world wide. Haven’t tried it but it doesn’t really appeal to me.
- Pzizz – Some weird power napping software. I don’t think it’ll look good sleeping on the job.
- Matinee – DVD organizer for your Mac. Organizes actually DVDs that were ripped to my machine. Sorry, but I don’t feel like putting 50 DVDs on my hard drive.
- iScooper – Software that downloads image galleries from a website so you don’t have to constantly click on a thumbnail and see a larger version, then hit the back button to try it again. I’ve had a VERY hard time getting this to work with any sites. It’s very picky and annoying me.
- Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab – Probably the best piece of software in this package. It’s got one game in four different versions. Like Tetris only different. Kind of fun, but I’m not addicted yet.
- Multimedia Tiler – Allows you to fill your screen with many types of media files, such as mpegs, still pictures, PDFs, etc. I fail to see the point.
- CastEay – Podcast software to create and organize Podcasts. Sounds cool and I have a little interest, but I’m not big into Podcasts. Might come in handy in the future.
Overall this MyzteryZOT was not for me. I didn’t get one program that I think is great. Maybe they will grow on me but I probably won’t do a MyzteryZOT again unless I know what’s included.
I’ll keep my eye on macZOT for deals, but I’m not a fan of the MyzteryZOT thing.
Slightly off topic, I wonder if this will win the Best Testimonial for their contest. 😉
