Macpaw’s Setapp adds an inbuilt app search and discovery tool

Setapp, Macpaw’s app subscription service, has launched a user face enhancement: an inbuilt app search and discovery tool. In response to the top requested feature by current customers, it offers quick access to the collection of all the apps in a single window by introducing an in-built App Discovery tool.

Setapp classifies all the apps in 10 categories: Creativity, Developer Tools, Education & Research, Lifestyle, Mac Hacks, Maintenance, Personal Finance, Productivity, Task Management, Writing & Blogging. New features include:

  • App categories (all apps are neatly organized);
  • Brief summaries (no previews needed:; you see what apps do at a glance);
  • A catalogue (you can flip through categories and apps within them;
  • Apps already installed are grouped separately for easy access).

Setapp is available for a $9.99 monthly fee. It’s an “unstore” alternative to Apple’s Mac App Store. With its referral program, you can get up to six months of free subscription. 

Currently, Setapp has 73 app from 65 vendors. After you install the client, it will create a lightweight folder in Finder. This is where all apps are. Click any app to open it.
