Many people ask where should they buy SideNotes from: our website, App Store or Setapp. Basically these apps are the same. The difference is in license managing system and notes location (the directory where they are saved) on your computer.
Although all ways to buy SideNotes are good, our suggestion is to buy the app directly from our website. It's much easier for us to support a user this way.
When you buy the app from SideNotes website, you can get a trial version and try the app before you decide to buy it. We provide free minor updates during the trial period. The license allows you to activate the app on 2 devices. Moreover, users who bought the app here are the first to get a new update. It's especially important in case of bug fixes: we are able to distribute a fixed version right away.
If you are a student, you can also get a nice discount!
Many people buy our apps from Mac App Store. It's the easies way. Just click install, wait and the app is ready to use.
You will get all the minor updates for free. You can use the app on as many devices as the App Store allows you.
The disadvantage is that it doesn't offer a trial version, and we can't publish updates right away. It always needs to be checked and accepted by App Store first.
Setapp is a service that allows you to get access to over two hundred of really great Mac apps. You just pay $9.99 USD once a month and that's it. We distribute Expressions, Workspaces and TeaCode this way, so if you have Setapp, you don't have to buy these apps. You can use them as long as you pay for the service.
