ABOUT MACPAW SETAPP

Setapp is Macpaw’s Subscription-Based ‘App Store’ containing a variety of popular Apps like Yummy, Shimo , CleanMyMac and 58 more apps. Its like another App Store but now filled with Macpaw’s app selection. You may ask yourself, ‘Whats in it for me’ to join this subscription based store? Well Macpaw offers a on-growing selection of minor and quality applications ready for download and use for a monthly fee of $9,99 giving you unlimited access and latest updates.

The Macpaw App Store which is a more appropriate name for the Setapp is truly easy to use and provides information about an App once clicked on. An Apple Store like popup-screen opens describing and showing the application chosen.

You’ll be able to use Setapp on two different Mac computers with one subscription. MacPaw is working on adding a Family Share plan in the future, which will allow for more machines, but will cost more. Using Setapp is like any other application and downloaded and installed applications can be uninstalled as you always do but will still remain in your Setapp folder for later use.

APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE

Setapp covers most application area’s right now. Once you activated your SETAPP account on the web, start downloading the SetApp.dmg file from ‘downloads’. The installation will create a special Setapp folder in your Finder containing all presently available applications.
It works quite easy in your Finder and on your desktop .

Hit an application and the activated program reveals information about its purpose and choose ‘open’ if you want to download and activate it. In your computers finder, you’ll find a special Setapp folder containing all ready to download applications.
So you’ve got quite a selection of apps to your disposal right now, but they are NOT yours ! You get the privilege of using them as long as your account is valid. They will be updated automatically by Macpaw, and NO serials are required.

VERDICT

So Setapp has come to light at last. But does it shine? It certainly does, if you scroll in the Setapp- listing and find numerous applications you are definitely interested in. So you get what you pay for? Well yes and no, because you will not own the applications yourself, but may use them as long as you are subscribed to Setapp. The Setapp-list has nearly $1,300 worth of apps, so at $9.99 per-month your subscription to Setapp will do for many years. That’s not a bad bargain at all. It all comes down to simple calculations, and the Setapp-list is on-growing and will hopefully never end growing which gives you more and more Apps for your money.
