Turn websites into full-featured apps.

Overview

Unite 3 lets you turn websites into apps on your Mac and change the way you use your computer forever

Creating your app

It all starts with the new Unite creation tool. Simply enter a name for your app, enter a URL, pick an icon, and launch your app.

In addition to using a custom icon, Unite can automatically grab the HQ site favicon for you.

Lastly, you can choose some additional settings for your Unite app: status bar mode, compact mode, and intelligent whitelisting.

A full browser in every app

Every Unite app is powered by the Unite browser, which uses WebKit 2 to enable support for virtually all web standards and plugins.

It also supports custom features tailored specifically for Unite, like shortcuts, whitelisting, customization, and more - all in an incredibly lightweight package.

I've tested a handful of apps that turn web pages into stand-alone apps (including Fluid 2 and Microsoft Edge's peel-off "apps"), and this comes up short in a lot of respects: It's apps are larger (in MB) than others, its tab handling is poor, it lacks standard keyboard navigation (no back/forward, no switching between tabs), there are no favicons on tabs (can't tell your open Google Docs tabs from your Google Sheets tabs), and it doesn't remember its previous state between uses (defaulting to only one tab open on every launch). It's also bigger (MB) and slower than similar apps. I hope these features improve because Unite seems to be the only app of its kind in active development.

I have been using Unite 2 for several months now and cannot imagine having to work without it. Therefore, I am somewhat surprised by the low rating this app receives, because for me it has been nothing less than a time-saving and productivity beast. Sure, it is not a full-fletched browser with plugin support (not sure why this is a dealbreaker, as I believe it was never meant to work as a browser replacement in the first place anyway), but it allows me to quickly launch and switch between web-apps for which no desktop app has been designed. And to the best of my ability for testing performance, it is worth noting that I notice a clear performance improvement. When running often-used (heavy) web-apps as separate Unite apps next to my general multi-tab browsing in Safari or Chrome they remain stable and fast, (suprisingly, some websites run smoother and consume less RAM in Unite 2 than in Safari or Chome). I still have to figure out how to use user scripts, but I cannot find any documentation for this. Would be great if the developer provides some more documentation for this, preferably with some examples. Also, I cannot get the bookmarks bar to work (the bar remains empty when adding bookmarks, perhaps I do something wrong), but besides, it would be great to enter multiple tabbed websites when creating the app to have it always open multiple taps at startup. Anyway, great work! Best, Maru

I really want to like this app. It's a great idea. It is functional, but it is missing the ability to use extensions. I don't use a browser without being able to install a few key extensions like an ad blocker and Roboform. The apps that I created are all light on resources, but without extensions, I have no use for it.

I really hate this developer! Coherence, Coherence Pro, Unite? The developer did the similar things/apps, and earned three times the money. Maybe the developer will make Unite Pro, and earn money once again. Yuck!

Still not remembering window size in Mojave. Fluid.app, Coherence, every other app I use remembers the window size. I've been looking for updates now that Mojave is officially released.

It kind of works with some of my websites, but most of them just show the front page but none of the menu options or java script buttons do not work, so pretty much a waste of money and time which is pretty disappointing to just feel like I've just thrown money away, Should have been a demo to try out in the offer, could not find one and simply trusted the MacUpdate site to be selling a product that works which has always been the case up to this product.

Is there a trial version? This sounds interesting, but I'm not sure what it can actually do. Trial version would let me see... but there's so much crappy software out there, I can't afford to buy it all.

Could not find any informational help with this app and had problems getting it to function immediately after installing and buying it. It now works as advertised and for what it does, I am well pleased.

What are the chances that support for plugins will be added for this? An ad blocker would be particularly useful. I use ad blocking software on all browsers and ads appearing on app windows is annoying.

What is the difference between Unite and Coherence, made by the same company? They appear to do the same thing.

I just recently tried this and my initial comments after having used and somehow purchased it, is that there are some things that could be done better. Not sure if it's intentional that the sizes of the windows of the apps that are created with Unite can't be saved and always opens zoomed upwards to fill the screen size. I created a Facebook Messenger Unite app that should save the window size but certainly didn't. Also, the example with Facebook Messenger has a different issue that shows because often the Unite app window is entirely blank as if nothing is there, not even the Messenger URL. The app title when this happens is DefaultApp which is not "Facebook Messenger" like I called the Unite app. There's a slight animation failure after creating Unite app from the Unite window. I don't know what the animation actually is supposed to be. It appears as if Unite wants to send the Unite app directly to the Dock with a fancy animation, that perhaps glows. It doesn't give a good impression of an animation that is supposed to be smooth. It -could- be intentional, but I doubt it. All in all I should have tried the trial before shooting off my monies for this app. I would have had 3 tries to create an Unite app and that would probably have shown the defects of this application. It's a great app though - I bet that through its function I can have many great and fun hours with it. When it's updated I'll also look forward to spending more time with it.
