Social distancing means we’re all spending more time in the house than ever… But once you’ve played every board game you own, replayed the entire Halo series on Xbox, and turned your backyard into botanical gardens, what else are supposed to do with your time?
Perhaps this is the moment to spread your wings and learn something new? If you’re itching for some projects to get stuck into, check out our social distancing subscription bundle.
We’ve teamed up with our partners to offer MUO readers a mega saving on three premium apps:
- Rosetta Stone
- KeepSolid VPN Unlimited
- 12min Premium Micro Book Library
Combined, the apps are worth nearly $850. As a MakeUseOf reader, you can pick up the entire bundle for just $199—a 76 percent discount on the regular price.
Why Use Rosetta Stone?
Rosetta Stone is one of the most comprehensive language-learning suites in the world. It caters for all levels and comes with a variety of learning aids. The program’s aim is to make you absorb your target language in the same way that you do when you’re a child.
In total, 24 languages are offered on the platform, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, and Russian.
This deal gives you lifetime access to all 24 languages on both desktop and mobile.
You’ll also be able to practice your pronunciation with Rosetta Stone’s TruAccent speech recognition technology and, when you feel comfortable enough, use the advanced speech engine to compare your accent with native speakers.
KeepSolid VPN Unlimited
The lockdown has meant we’ve all been binge-watching TV and movies more than ever. That’s where the next tool in the bundle—KeepSolid VPN Unlimited—is useful.
As any regular MakeUseOf reader knows, using a VPN lets you bypass geoblocking that streaming services put in place. It means you can access the Netflix catalog from another country, stream live TV from BBC iPlayer if you’re based outside the UK, and even sign up for paid subscriptions with video-on-demand providers from elsewhere in the world.
Of course, a VPN is also an essential security tool. You can protect yourself on public Wi-Fi, prevent your ISP and local government from seeing your web traffic, and encrypt all your internet data.
KeepSolid VPN Unlimited has servers in more than 80 countries and supports the major VPN protocols such as IKEv2, OpenVPN, and L2TP/IPSec.
Once again, this deal will bag you a lifetime subscription.
12min Premium Micro Book Library
The final lifetime subscription in our social distancing bundle is 12min Premium Micro Book Library.
One of the curious truths about 2020’s lockdown is that while we might all be spending more time in our homes, many of us also have less free time than ever. Anyone with kids knows what we’re talking about.
If you’re a book lover who’s not had time to read any new material in 2020, 12min Premium Micro Book Library might offer a solution. The app’s specialty is providing digestible overviews of long books. In theory, each overview only takes 12 minutes to read. Audio and text versions are available.
In total, more than 380 overviews are on the platform, with 30+ new titles added every month.
Make Social Distancing Fun!
More knowledge, more entertainment, more security. The perfect lockdown combination. If you’d like to get lifetime access to these three premium apps, make sure you grab the bundle while it’s still available—the deal expires on August 15th, 2020.
