With the announcement of macOS Sonoma at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), the tech giant introduced the ability to convert websites into "web apps." Not to be outdone, Unite, a software that offers similar functionalities, has launched Unite 5 with a slew of powerful features.
Developed by Binyamin Goldman, Unite 5 is a significant update and comes with a host of new capabilities. Users can easily create a web app by simply adding a URL and selecting a logo. Additional options like link forwarding, compact mode, and menu bar app are also available.
Unite 5 goes beyond mere app creation. It offers a curated suggestion feature, presenting users with popular sites in categories like social media, email, and entertainment. An app library further simplifies the management of these web apps, allowing users to launch, edit, or remove them seamlessly.
The software introduces custom link forwarding, enabling users to set default redirections for specific links. This opens up the possibility to have links open in other apps or even in browsers. Browser-based functionalities such as toolbar and title bar customization and multi-tab apps are also on offer.
Goldman has revealed that he is working on launching a "Unite for Teams" version next year, promising even more flexibility and customizations.
Unite 5 is priced at $29.99 for a single Mac license, and existing Unite 4 users can upgrade for just $19.99.
By releasing Unite 5, Binyamin Goldman has indeed filled the gap that macOS Sonoma left open, offering users powerful customization options for web app creation. The new features are a big leap from the previous version, and with more updates coming, Unite 5 is set to change the way we interact with web apps on macOS.
