MacVoices #16206: The MacJury Discusses Setapp from MacPaw

MacPaw has a new idea in software sales and distribution called Setapp. Described as a “Netflix for software”, Setapp gives you access to (right now) over sixty different software packages for a low monthly subscription price. MacPaw CEO Oleksandr Kosovan joined MacJury panel members Jeff Gamet, Brett Terpstra and host Chuck Joiner to discuss how Setapp benefits both developers and customers by introducing a service that focuses on high quality software titles that are kept up to date and are available on demand for the user. Currently in beta, Setapp may represent one of the futures of software distribution. Get the answers to all of your questions, then sign up to give it a try.
