Let’s take a look at just a few of the things Setapp has to offer in different categories:


Setapp has a bunch of apps that will keep your Mac running sweet and fast, as well as getting rid of desktop junk, duplicate files, and recovering lost data.

CleanMyMac X packs a lot of punch, and it will optimize Mac, uninstall apps, find and remove malware, as well as protecting your sensitive data and freeing up disk space.

iStatMenus is a genius app that lives in your Mac menu bar and gives you all the important info about your system at a glance when you click on the dropdown.

Use it as a CPU monitor, and keep an eye on your memory load, system temperature, disk space, and battery life, as well as other important info.

In the Maintenance category, there’s also apps for backing up your Mac, extending the battery life, and managing and backing up from iOS and Android devices on your Mac, as well as several more (I haven’t got the space to go into detail on each one, but you get the picture!)


We all love lifestyle apps, don’t we! Setapp has gathered a huge amount of useful lifestyle apps together, and they are all neatly kept inside Setapp so you will always be able to find the one you want fast.

There’s photo editing software, such as TouchRetouch to edit photos exactly how you want them, and if you want to organize photos, then meet Emulsion - your new photo manager!

If you want to download media from the web there’s Downie, and some of the other apps include MacGourmet Deluxe for recipes, MoneyWiz for keeping your finances on track, and many others for every imaginable lifestyle need.


Productivity apps are another category we all seem to love, and there’s no shortage of them in Setapp!

If task focus is required, HazeOver is a good productivity app, and Switchem lets you group your apps by task so you can switch seamlessly from one workspace to another.

If you’re after a clipboard manager, Paste and Unclutter are two very good choices. Paste will make fast work of your copy-pasting, and Unclutter is also a desktop sticky-notes app and a drag-and-drop file manager.

Numi is a super-powered calculator, and Mate Translate is your handy translator. There are apps for your calendar organization, creating mind maps, speeding up your typing, time tracking, and file sharing, among others.

If you want to unleash your inner creative, then the apps in the Creativity category were made for you.
