There are cases when apps are removed from the Setapp suite and become unavailable for new Setapp members.
Why? The reasons for leaving are various. These are just a few: developers stop supporting and updating the app — or retire it; an app becomes free or switches to another distribution model.
Still, one thing 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 our efforts, we sadly say Goodbye.
What happens when an app leaves Setapp? The app is no longer updated nor maintained; it gradually becomes obsolete and, most probably, loses compatibility with the newer versions of macOS.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.
