Well, it seems I’m the odd man out. I really like the subscription model of Setapp. Rapidweaver updated slicker than snot.
Setapp isn’t the only subscription service I use. I also use Allegorthmic service for Substance Painter and Designer, and the subscription service for the Unity game engine. Cost wise it’s a wash. The good part is software is always up-to-date without licensing hassles.
Setapp has introduced me to apps I never considered before, such as Ulysses which has now replaced Scrivener.
My view is if a service makes my life easier, then I’ll use it. Sure, anything can happen. Setapp could fail just like any other service or company. I could also die in a car accident. However, cars make things a lot easier, so I risk it. The worst that can happen with Setapp is it ceases to exist resulting in the need to go back to manually upgrading. I’ll risk it.
Took me quite a while to even try Setapp because I was stubborn. Damn human nature. Now I wish I had subscribed earlier. So far Setapp is still around, so I’m good to go.
