Review of Setapp
Scummy company, misleading/false advertisement (they claim you dont need a cc for the trial, then ask for a cc once you've signed up and soft enrolled into their email list, which sends out several emails a day, with no unsubscribe button.
Lacks community
Negative company mission
Weak customer support
Weak visual design
Hard to use
Too expensive

Review of Setapp
Everything was fine until I decided to cancel. (Cancellation was easy, getting SetApp out of my life hasn’t been.) After properly uninstalling the SetApp apps using the built-in uninstaller, and fully uninstalling SetApp using App Cleaner, Launchpad filled with dead shortcuts to all SetApp apps, even those I never installed. I reset the Launchpad database via Terminal, and was able to get back to normal - for a day. Now the nonexistent app shortcuts are back again. I’m going to have to wipe my MacBook Pro, it seems. Ran a full virus scan with. BitDefender, which is usually overzealous, and it found nothing. The empty, logo-marked SetApp folder keeps reappearing on my SSD. And now I’m going to have to pay to upgrade my occasional backup Software, Carbon Copy Cloner, to the latest version, so that I don’t have to wait ages for my Backblaze online backup to download my data. Then, I have to reinstall MacOS from scratch. Why does this software keep fighting me? I can’t think of any benefit to the company, so it makes me believe there’s some major flaw in their code. Worst of all, I’ve found numerous horror stories like this about SetApp, clearly written by intelligent people who performed uninstalls the right way, based on their descriptions. I’m usually skeptical of other reviewers who leave negative reviews, assuming they did something wrong. If I had ignored a review like this a while back, I would not be happy with myself right now.
