Aura 2

Tuesday 21 February, 2017

Aura 2 is now available. This is a big update, and Aura is becoming an even more powerful way to work with your Gmail.

So, what's new?

Aura is leaving the Mac App Store. I now believe that the store is not the best place to distribute Mac software, or the best way to provide a good experience for customers. Aura v1.3 will remain on the App Store till Friday 3 March.

While there is a free trial of Aura, there is no longer a free version. Aura is moving to subscription pricing, and after 30 days will cost $2.99 per month. After much consideration, this seems the fairest way to provide a continually improving app. I'm putting my efforts into making better software rather than launching an ad-supported or otherwise restricted version.

Everyone who purchased v1.x of Aura Pro gets Aura 2 free for one year. Just forward your App Store receipt to help@auraformac.com and I'll set you up.

There is no way right now to sign up for a subscription, but I'll provide one shortly and everyone using Aura will have the opportunity to sign up before the trial runs out.
