MarsEdit is Now Available on Setapp

May 16th, 2019

Great news for Setapp users: MarsEdit is now available as part of the lineup of apps. This means that Setapp subscribers can use the app, with all its functionality unlocked, for free.

Sign up for a free Setapp trial.

If you aren’t already a Setapp subscriber, using the link above to sign up will help me. Try it out for free, and if you end up subscribing, I will receive a perpetual commission from Setapp based on your $9.99/month membership fee.

I have been thinking for years that it would be great to offer an alternative subscription pricing version of MarsEdit. I may still pursue that, but offering the app via Setapp seems like a great way to bundle it with several apps that my potential customers may already be using.
