Setapp turns two

2 min read

So we have good news and good news. First, Setapp is officially two years old now. Second, there will be a celebration – Setapp Birthday Giveaway – and you’ve been invited.

On Jan 25, 2017, the first ever subscription service for Mac apps was born. Entering our third year of app business, we look back with lots of love and gratitude. Setapp has been an arduous task and a fascinating adventure at the same time. We couldn’t be more grateful for all of your support and trust on our common journey.


Year number 2 in retrospect

Apart from our clients – the key highlight of Setapp’s second (and every) year – here are some more that are worth recalling:

  • Extra seats for more Macs. For those who need more Setapp space, you can now add up to five Macs to your account – one for free and four for $4.99/month each.

  • Share the love. We launched Gift Cards for easy Setapp sharing.

  • Family plan. Starting October 2018, Setappians don’t have to worry about family budget anymore. Pay $19.99/month or $239.88/year to enjoy the perks of Family Plan. Family owners can use Setapp on two Macs and add up to three people with 1 Mac per person.

  • Enjoy the darkness. To ensure Setapp looks good in macOS Mojave, we added dark theme to your desktop app.

  • Keep your favorite apps on hand. With over 150 apps available, you should be able to set your faves apart. Hover over the app and click on the heart to save it to Favorites.

  • Improved app discovery experience. We changed the look and feel of the main menu in the desktop app as well as added app recommendations.
