So, are you sick of paying large one-off costs for productivity apps or even a recurring subscription for loads of them? And you’re just getting started in a business, or maybe a freelancer, or you’re just looking to save some money, some dollars. Then the Setapp could be an application for you, and today we’re going to review it, see whether it’s right for you, and give you the pros and cons of using this app.
Welcome back, So guys in case you’re new over here, my name is Shahid and I have been a blogger for sense 4 years. Also, I’ve been an Apple iOS and Android user for the past 10 years. Also, I love to write blogs to share my knowledge in the form of blogs with more and more people.
So Setapp is a really interesting application. It’s one that’s developed by a company called MacP. I’ve known this company for quite a while, and they’ve got a great reputation. They came up with CleanMyMac and a lot of other experiences as well. But Setapp is basically like Netflix for apps because you pay for one subscription.
That subscription is now priced at $12.49 a month for the medium pricing plan that gives you access to iOS and Mac in terms of getting access to those applications. It gives you 240 apps that you can download and install within that subscription. And each time, if you’re curious how the monetization model works, each time you use a certain application, that developer gets a portion of the money, which is much better than necessarily paying huge amounts upfront for these apps.
Now these apps range from a wide variety of apps that can convert stuff for you. For example, a timer application, but they really span all the way to email, to project management software, and there’s a real range of them. And you’re pretty much going to get any tool for the job in one subscription, which a lot of people like instead of having to make that investment upfront.
This is especially good for freelancers or people who are starting a business more recently, and they’re looking to save all of that fee upfront and just pay one subscription as they go. The other con to this experience is that ownership isn’t something you have. It’s like Netflix, it’s like Prime Video.
You are renting it per month, and if that subscription ends, you do not have access to it. In terms of your data, I believe it’s stored locally. I’ll double-check on that because I’m not a data expert, but at the same time, it is that nature of having another subscription, but this one is housing 240 apps, which is not bad at all.
Talking about AI assistance, there is a function in this that helps you basically being able to save time in finding an app that’s right for you in a certain scenario. So you could ask it how to speed up your Mac, or how to add widgets to your Mac, and it will find an app that’s suitable for you. We want to try and beat that over on Tool Finder.
We’ve got every productivity app you can think of, and we’re adding loads more. So jump over to it. Make sure you do so. The AI function is fairly new, but it’s actually really powerful for that. There’s also some really neat productivity apps on here. I want to dive into five of my favorite ones.
- Session is a really good example of a great timer application.
- Be Focused Pro is another one of those but focuses much more on Pomodoro Technique.
- Mind Node is great for visually mapping things.
- Craft is a well-known sort of document application. This is scaled down a little bit more than for Setapp.
- NotePlan as well, which is great for task calendars and notes as well as for managing them in markdown.
It is a really interesting way to save a bit of money, and it’s going to be a good bet. But if you’re somebody who’s sick of subscriptions and wants ownership, this probably isn’t the app for you. But if you’re one that wants to save a bit of time in installing things and getting ownership and licenses and paying large upfront sums, this could be for you. So it’s worth taking a look at if you’re interested.
I probably recommend this more for those who are freelancers or starting a business. So folks, hopefully, you found this useful in diving into some apps. This is an app of an app. It’s an app of the app. It’s Inception, this one. So hopefully, you found it interesting.
