Home is everywhere and nowhere.
99% of the apps for Windows are garbage.
Fixed (that for you)

I slightly agree with iOS, lots of Garbage, not so on the Mac though.



Garbage? Malware. It's malware.
It took me forever to scrape that stupid program out of my system.
I agree.

That includes Adobe then, it puts stuff everywhere, even after uninstalling it leaves lots of traces/a footprint.

Charge Running, the app that gives live coaching for runners (think Peloton for Running) is also having it's first ever sale, and knocking 25% off it's annual subscription.

As someone who runs with them 3x a week, it's a damn good deal!

How does one buy iPad apps on the iPhone or the Mac (Catalina) now? I want to pick up Pixelmator Photo.
On Catalina, you need to use the Retroactive app to install iTunes 12.6.

Ironically, for those that don't currently have an iPad, I think it might be easier to buy the app on a Windows computer these days than on a Mac.

If someone has a better way, I'd love to hear it.

We are growing further and further apart from the days of “it just works” and “oh, they’ve thought of that”.

Apple’s own ecosystem is becoming restrictive of itself within the ecosystem. It’s...sad.

I'm not sure if Apple did this intentionally or it's an oversight from a different change.

I can believe that it's intentionally difficult to "buy" iPad-only apps on any other device. It can result in a poor user experience for those that don't understand what they are doing, and it makes it more difficult for savvy users to take advantage of sales such as these - makes it more difficult to get good apps when the price is temporarily free and warehouse them for when/if a compatible device is purchased.

On the flip side, it could just be an oversight left over from when they revamped the app store. To be fair, a similar problem used to exist on Xbox where you had to physically sign-in on an Xbox to take advantage of the free-with-gold deals. It was years before they made it possible to get those deals through the webstore.

Not seeing any discount on lifetime premium for 1blocker, I guess the discount is only for subscription.

I don't think there is an iOS version of iMazing -- just mac, which is well worth the $.

iStat Menus is $4.99 right now. I wouldn't wait until the price increases for Black Friday.
