My thanks to Unite for sponsoring The Loop this week. Unite 4 for macOS allows you to turn any website into an app on your Mac. Using a lightweight, WebKit powered browser as a backend, you can easily create isolated, customizable apps from any site.
Unite 4 includes dozens of new features, including support for native notifications, new customization options, M1 support, and much more. Unite apps also serve as a great alternative for resource hogging Electron apps or half-baked Catalyst apps.
Some examples of apps you could create in mere minutes with Unite:
- A Gmail web client that behaves like a native mail client.
- A status bar app for Apple Music or Overcast
- An isolated workspace for apps that may track you like Facebook
- A lightweight and power efficient version of Slack, Discord, or Whatsapp with full notification support
- A fully featured Instagram app that has a resizable window, unlike the M1 version.
- A Robinhood, Figma, or Roam Research app for your desktop.
The Loop readers get 20% off this week when you purchase Unite 4 or when you use the promo code ‘LOOPINSIGHT’ at checkout.
You can also try Unite for 14 days absolutely free or use it as part of your subscription if you’re a Setapp subscriber!
