Club MacStories Plan

Launched in 2015, Club MacStories has provided members with more of the content they know and love from every week for the low price of $5/month or $50/year.

Among the many benefits of joining the Club are:

MacStories Weekly

A newsletter produced roughly 48 weeks per year that is packed with apps and gear recommended by the MacStories team, themed app collections, Shortcuts and other automation how-tos, tips, giveaways, longform essays, interviews with developers and other community members, links to interesting stories around the web, the best app updates and releases of the week, and a whole lot more. MacStories Weekly is available by email and on at

Monthly Log

A monthly newsletter published 12 times per year that collects longform stories from the MacStories team. Like MacStories Weekly, the Log is available to Club members via email or

MacStories Unwind+

MacStories Unwind+ is a fun exploration of media and more. Each Friday, Federico and John explore the fun differences between American and Italian culture and recommend media they enjoy, whether it’s a book, movie, TV show, music, video game, or other media.

Also, once a month, Unwind is taken over by the MacStories AV Club, a sort of book club for all types of media that we host in our Club MacStories+ and Club PremierDiscord community. Discord members help us pick the media we enjoy as a group each month and can listen and participate in the monthly live recordings, which are then released on Friday as part of Unwind.

All Club members receive new episodes early, ad-free, and in high-bitrate audio.

Club MacStories+ and Club Premier members also have the chance to help choose our monthly AV Club media picks, participate in and listen to the live recording of our AV Club discussions, and chat about their favorite media in a dedicated AV Club section of our Discord community.

Perks and Freebies

Club members enjoy perks throughout the year such as:

  • eBook versions of Federico’s annual iOS and iPadOS review and other longform reviews published by the team
  • Wallpapers for mobile and desktop
  • Discounts on the MacStories Shortcuts Icons
  • Exclusive, time-limited discounts and giveaways of apps and web services throughout the year

With the introduction of the Club MacStories+ and Club Premier plans, the perks enjoyed by Club MacStories members have not changed.

In addition to everything listed above, Club members will also be able to browse entire past issues of MacStories Weekly and the Monthly Log in reverse chronological order using the Club’s new web app, which is responsive and supports light and dark modes, keyboard navigation, and Dynamic Type on iOS.
