, without limitations on the number of customers. Free DevMate gives a set of necessary tools to sell applications outside the Mac App Store for both indie developers and established Mac software vendors.
has a set of advanced free tools for full-cycle app development (licensing, crash reporting, update delivery, and feedback collection). DevMate’s single SDK saves hours of coding and primes an application for release.
Oleksandr Kosovan, CEO of MacPaw: “Lots of developers understand that there is a huge market opportunity outside the Mac App Store. A developer faces a tough road ahead when developing an app. It takes money and time to code from scratch the separate frameworks for licensing, updates, crash reports and user feedback. DevMate offers a developer everything one needs to prepare an app for release, including hosting and a CDN to provide app availability, version management, and an e-commerce solution for selling. Here at MacPaw we’d like to help other Mac app developers and give them what they need —for free. Moreover, that’s what we use ourselves as a backbone for our products.”
With over 8 years of experience in app development and a heavy focus on OS X utilities, MacPaw has achieved significant results in delivering the best experience to Mac users. Initially driven by the Mac App Store restrictions, DevMate was developed for the in-house needs of MacPaw (to develop and distribute CleanMyMac outside the Mac App Store) and in 4 years it evolved into a reliable and advanced tool. Well-established companies like Realmac Software, DigiDNA, Smile, Readdle are already on board.
Thus, DevMate is a reliable tool for established Mac app developers and those trying to break into the market.
