There are cases when apps leave the Setapp suite and become unavailable for new Setapp members.
Why do apps leave? The reasons are various. These are just a few: developers stop supporting and updating the app or retire it at all; an app switches to another distribution model or becomes free.
But here's what always matters: in Setapp, we care about the best possible quality and user experience for our members. If we can’t guarantee that for an app, despite all efforts, we sadly say Goodbye.
What happens when an app leaves Setapp? The app is no longer updated nor maintained in Setapp; it gradually becomes obsolete and, most probably, loses compatibility with the newer versions of macOS. As long as you keep an app installed, it remains functional for you via Setapp.
However, in case of uninstallation, you will no longer be able to install it again. And, of course, you can always look for a good alternative in Setapp.
Here's the list of apps that have been removed from Setapp and our replacement recommendations.
Alternatives: Strike, Focused, Marked, and other apps in the Writing & Blogging collection.

Sadly, the app was one of a kind in Setapp, so we can't recommend any alternatives.
