Update (12/23 8:45am): The promo page has been updated with the following message: “The Special offer is suspended.” We’ll let you know if/when the promo becomes available again.

There are tons of apps on sale right now for the holidays, but this one may take the cake. Mac|Life is giving away free downloads of Pixelmator for Mac. You’ll have to do a bit of legwork (no personal information required!), but it’s definitely worth it. This blockbuster app usually sells for $30 and has never been priced below $15. Continue on for all the details: In order to get access to the free download all you have to do is head to this special promo page and answer a trivia question about the latest issue of Mac|Life magazine. If you’re not a Mac|Life subscriber, you can download the iOS app and activate a free trial, but honestly that’s probably not necessary. The questions aren’t difficult. I don’t have access to Mac|Life magazine and I was able to easily guess two different trivia questions.

Pixelmator with El Capitan Support

Full-featured and powerful image editing app for the Mac.

Pixelmator takes full advantage of the latest Mac features and technologies, giving you speedy, powerful tools that let you touch up and enhance images, draw or paint, apply dazzling effects, or create advanced compositions with ease. Once your images are ready, access them anywhere with iCloud, save them to Photos, share via email or social networks, print, or export to popular image formats. All right from Pixelmator.

The new Pixelmator 3.4 is redesigned to cohere with OS X El Capitan’s fresh and modern look, brings new OS X Continuity features, like Handoff and iCloud Drive support, and works wonderfully together with Pixelmator for iOS.
