Setapp Confirms App Subscriptions Are Here to Stay
There’s been an ongoing debate about the value of software subscriptions, but Mac software service Setapp has confirmed that subscriptions are here to stay. In an interview with TheNextWeb, Setapp said that it was experiencing significant growth in its user base and revenue streams from the subscription-based business model. Rather than relying on one-time purchases, Setapp has found that users are more likely to return for future updates if they have to pay less per month to access their software rather than paying once upfront.
The History of App Subscriptions
In-app subscriptions may have started in the gaming world, but they’ve quickly spread into other forms of software and have disrupted the entertainment industry as a whole. Apple had also proven that app subscriptions could work with their release of Apple Music. IOS devices now come preloaded with subscription management services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. These trends should lead you to believe that app subscriptions are here to stay – they seem well on their way towards dominating the market in years to come.
The Benefits of App Subscriptions
There are many benefits of using a service like Setapp or any other. The first and foremost being that you don’t have to worry about apps all the time. Paying for a year of Netflix, Spotify, and Apple Music at once is cheaper than the three separate payments they would take up in a year, which can go towards other things you need. You also won’t run into bad surprises like your favorite app going off the market and taking your money with it.
How Can a Startup Get Started?
First and foremost, you’ll need a product. In order to take the next step of turning your idea into a reality, you’ll need some savings or an investment from someone else. Beyond these two things, what else is needed for startup success? The answer may be simpler than you think – passion. A company can’t succeed without being driven by its creators’ passions for what they’re doing.
Why App Subscription Pricing Works So Well For Users
No one likes having to download a free app, install it, then only use it once or twice before deleting it from their Mac or iPhone. But with the recent launch of Setapp, this is no longer a problem for anyone. The service offers you access to hundreds of professional-grade software apps for a subscription fee that’s less than the cost of buying any individual app outright.
What Does This Mean for Apple Users?
For Apple users, this could mean that some popular applications will be released as a standalone application through the Mac App Store instead of being included with the macOS. For those wanting a yearly license or updates, it’s likely they’ll have to purchase the program separately in addition to macOS on its own.
