SetApp overview

What is SetApp?

Setapp is a cloud-based software designed to help businesses of all sizes gain access to a collection of Mac and iOS applications to aid with productivity and optimize tasks. It enables users to select applications from various categories including maintenance, creativity, productivity, lifestyle, web development, writing, education, personal finance, and more.

Employees can use the application to track projects, create mind maps or strategic plans, view files in a single or dual pane layout, and maintain schedules via a calendar. Setapp allows professionals to automatically update applications and avoid viewing in-app purchases or advertisements. The platform lets users synchronize data across Mac or iOS devices, share business documents with team members, and monitor system health in real-time.

Setapp also enables organizations to search documents across remote servers by file names, extensions, or tags and collect data to track usage. Other features include data storage management, a drag-and-drop interface, archiving, productivity tracking, automated alerts, access control, data backup, task management, and more.

We've been using Setapp for nearly a year now in our company and they really deliver on their promises. My team happily uses the big selection of apps (there is something for everyone) and we are always eager to check out the new apps that pop up every few weeks. Generally the apps are of high quality, but some haven't been updated in while and a few are very bare bones. They conducted customer research sessions with me and took all my feedback seriously - they really care for their users. Overall really good value for the price point.

Pros
- Contains many high quality apps - Pricing is very reasonable - Includes iOS and Mac apps - Mac app is nicely done - Great customer support

Cons
- Some apps haven't been updated in a while - Would be great to have a roadmap of what's to come (apps, features) in the future - No Android apps for now - Setapp Mac app sometimes uses too many system resources in the background - Few low quality apps - Switching existing users from one organisation to another can be a bit fiddly

Incredible, growing collection of apps for a flat rate - great way to save some $

Pros
Setapp is always my first stop when looking for an app that I need. They've curated an incredible assortment of apps, and there is literally something in their library for pretty much anything you need to do on your mac. At one flat subscription for all apps, this is one of the best deals out there, especially for small business owners still developing workflows and infrastructure.

Cons
Hard to think of anything I don't like. Some of the apps have an update process that's a bit more cumbersome than something you might purchase in the app store, but when I've run into this, the customer support for those apps has been very helpful.

Great value for the small price (but only if you get used to it)

Overall — I loved the ability to get an app that I need at a particular moment very quickly. I enjoyed it while I was using it. And if it wasn't for the lack of apps that I do find on the MacAppStore or very "niche" oriented (they are important in my workflow) — I would definitely continue as a paid subscriber. You have to try it for yourself and see if Setapp has you covered.

Pros
Setapp was very easy to install and start-up. It was a simple process when I needed to add more team members to our account. Getting the desired apps from their collection feels "integrated" and natural in a sense. Doesn't feel like you have to go through too many cluttered steps in order to get your solution.

Cons
The lack of apps that I truly want to see, and that I use daily — they are not there. Though, this is definitely subjective, and you have you try it on your own to see if the existing collection fits your daily/weekly needs.

The Timing App is Worth The Cost of Subscription

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

Ulysses, Paste, Timing, Cleanshot are the must have apps in this suite.

Pros
The amount of software in the software is significant. The timing app along is worth the cost of admission.

Cons
Licensing across most of my devices gets tedious. Can get more expensive with multiple devices. The usefulness of 60% of the software on here is questionable and looks to only be added to increase the software number.

I can recommend it with clean conscience.

Pros
There's a lot of small apps that are useful, but not used everyday. Besides, there are some more apps that I use regularly and their singular licenses would cost me much, much more.

Cons
The programs base could be wider. It would be great to have all the software that is needed, I could even pay more to access other apps like Photoshop or other more advanced applications.
