Setapp Introduces an In-built App Discovery Tool for Quick App Search and Suggestions

Setapp, the first Mac app-subscription service rolls out a substantial UI revamp an inbuilt App Discovery tool. With the launch of  the new, improved desktop client, Setapp offers handy and quick access to all the apps in one window. The improvement aims to make app discovery easier and faster.

“We’ve built strong relationships with our customers since Setapp beta launch. As developers, we solicited and encouraged feedback at different product stages”, says Oleksandr Kosovan, founder and CEO of Setapp. “Our users asked for a better structure, a simpler discovery mechanism in Setapp (46,38% of users surveyed requested it). As a customer centric company, we couldn’t but implement that feature. We believe that well-structured Setapp will give better user experience to the customers.”

The new Setapp is no longer a folder. It’s a catalogue with categories and brief app summaries.

What’s new in the new Setapp:

  • App categories (All apps are neatly organized now)
  • Brief summaries (No previews needed)
  • Handy catalogue (Explore categories and apps within)
  • Installed apps at hand (Apps already installed are grouped separately for easy access).

Based on common function, type, or field of use and/or occupation Setapp classifies the apps in 10 categories:

  • Creativity
  • Developer Tools
  • Education & Research
  • Lifestyle
  • Mac Hacks
  • Maintenance
  • Personal Finance
  • Productivity
  • Task Management
  • Writing & Blogging
