FileBot on the Mac App Store

Post by rednoah » 16 Jun 2018, 09:22

FileBot is available on the Mac App Store (MAS) as well as an independent Mac app bundle.


Here are the key differences:
  • The MAS app works out of the box and does not require you to purchase a FileBot License.
  • The MAS app runs in a sandbox with limited system access. FileBot will have to ask for permissions before accessing files.
  • The MAS app does not support the filebot command-line tools due to Apple restrictions.
  • The MAS app does not support the FileBot Subtitles feature due to Apple restrictions.
  • The MAS app does not support the right-click "Send To" menu due to Apple restrictions.
  • Apple takes a 30% cut (as opposed to 5% + $0.50 per sale via Paddle) from each and every MAS purchase, so the MAS price is proportionally higher to account for that.

:idea: The independent Mac app bundle has no restrictions, but requires you to purchase a FileBot license.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
