Browsing the App Store can feel like staring into an endless abyss. With so much software to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start. So it makes sense that the Netflix-style subscription model has come to offer an alternative to scrolling through an endless stream of apps, prices and reviews.

The Mac App Store is rubbish! Rent apps instead with Setapp [Reviews]

Apple’s Mac App Store is broken. For developers and Mac users alike, the online store just isn’t working.

It’s too hard for buyers to find good software. And, thanks to Apple’s picky restrictions, the Mac App Store can make life difficult for developers.

Setapp, a Netflix-style subscription service for Mac apps, offers an innovative alternative. Instead of buying apps individually, you rent a bunch of them for $9.99 a month.

While it might sound unnerving to anyone accustomed to the idea of buying Mac apps outright, after using the service for two months, I found it liberating. Setup is dead-easy. And the selection is fantastic. Setapp serves up more than 60 Mac apps, all handpicked by MacPaw, the Mac development company that dreamed up the service.
