The subscription model is sweeping content of all kinds, and it makes a lot of sense. Pay a small monthly fee for access to a whole menu of stuff from which you can pick and choose. Movies and TV made it big at first, and now the subscription model has come to Mac apps.
Setapp bills itself as the first subscription service for Mac apps. It offers a curated library of more than 60 apps for a small monthly fee. Each app is found in an easily navigable library, covering everything for Mac maintenance, lifestyle, productivity, task management, developer tools, creativity, personal finance, and lots more. Additionally, since you’re paying for their use, there are no distracting ads or in-app purchases, and each app is automatically updated. You can use the apps on up to two computers.
