One of the things missing from Apple’s Mac App Store was the ability for developers to offer app bundles and free apps with subscriptions, even though those features have long been available in the iOS App Store. Apple announced today on its Developer Portal that the Mac App Store will now support both features.
App bundles make it easy for customers to buy up to 10 of your apps in a single purchase. And now, you can create app bundles for Mac apps or free apps that offer an auto-renewable subscription to access all apps in the bundle. Learn how to set up app bundles and effectively market them on your App Store product page.
Developers can now offer bundles of up to 10 of a single developer’s apps at a discount in one purchase. They will also be able to offer free apps for download that will offer auto-renewable subscription. Both features have been available in the iOS App Store, although bundling is restricted to paid iOS apps.
The new Mac App Store comes close on the heels of the recent revamping of the store alongside the release of macOS Mojave 10.14. The redesign was intended to make it easier for customers to find and download new Mac apps. However, the redesign has been met with mixed reviews.
