    TLDR: Setapp brings together more than 200 fantastic and fully vetted Mac and iOS apps for users to download, now at almost half off the regular price.

    If you need an app to edit some photos or manage passwords or track your finances on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, where do you turn? 

    If you plunge into the Apple App Store and start searching, there’s a decent chance you might find an app that could suit your needs. But…did you really? Once you’ve downloaded and installed an app, it isn’t uncommon to discover it might not do the specific job you hoped it would — or it might not do that job very well. 

    Fly-by-night apps are everywhere now. With a one-year subscription to Setapp ($69, 42 percent off, from TNW Deals), Mac and iOS users can take a lot of the guesswork out of hunting for just the app you need.

    Dubbed the Spotify of Mac apps by TechCrunch, Setapp is a clearing house for only the absolute best apps for facilitating any project you need done. Rather than thinking of them as a service, think of Setapp as a trusted advisor, unfurling a curated collection of over 210 apps that have all been vetted and tested to work fast and work well.

    For a single price, you download any and all the apps you need — and you can rest assured they’ll be ready to take on your tasks.

    If you want to keep your device running at peak performance, you can get something like Gemini to remove duplicate files, Disk Drill to recover lost data, or CleanMyMac X to free up disk space and speed up your machine. 

    If you need productivity help, you can grab Dropshare to quickly share any file or folder, or Pagico to manage tasks and projects.

    Or install whatever you need from all kinds of different categories, including developer tools, education, task management, creativity, and more.

    Setapp apps are always premium level tools, always free of ads, in-app purchases, or other junk that can show up in free versions. 

    If you’ve never tried it before, you can lock in 12 months of Setapp service right now on your device of choice for almost half off its regular price, only $69.
