Font manager on a subscription
As a fellow Mac user I know the current trend for Mac apps is to transfer to a subscription based plan — use the app, pay per month and get updates for free. While this might be beneficial and more sustainable to the developer, I don’t think this is the most user friendly way of selling apps to customers.
It’s hard to keep track of every little app you’re using on a separate subscription, and having a few of those apps quickly accumulates to spending a large sum of money at the end of the month.
Typeface has always been an affordable font manager for Mac. You know what you get, there are no hidden in-app purchases and the upgrade to the redesigned version 2 was free for every existing customer. However the up-front payment might still be something that holds back new users. That’s why Typeface is now available together with more than 120 awesome apps for only $9.99 per month on Setapp — a single subscription with a lot of value.
Hassle-free Mac apps
The biggest advantage of Setapp is that you don’t need to worry about managing different subscriptions, passwords, licenses, in-app-purchases, updates — it’s all taken care of. It’s super convenient to have all your apps in one place! Just download Setapp (there is a free trial) and the full suite with 120+ high quality apps is available to you instantly.
