TL;DR: Run Windows apps on your Mac seamlessly with CrossOver, on sale for 49% off. As of April 12, get a license for only $19.99.
Whether you’re a diehard Mac user or a PC forever kind of person, you have to admit that there are some programs made for the other you wish you could use. While it’s fairly easy to use a Mac program on a PC, when the tables are turned, the result is far from sunshine and rainbows. A Mac is like an alien world, and Windows software just doesn’t know its planetary language.
While it’s difficult to get these two opposing systems on the same page, it’s not impossible. You just need a translator, which is where CrossOver comes in. Unlike an emulator, CrossOver actually does the work of translating Windows commands in software, a utility, or even a game into Mac commands.
This app has been around for over a decade and was recently updated to work with the newest macOS environments — from High Sierra to Big Sur. So if you’ve recently upgraded to the newest MacBook Pro, you should still enjoy a seamless software experience.
Whether you’re looking to run Windows productivity apps for work-related stuff or get down and dirty with your favorite PC games, CrossOver lets you do so on your Mac in a way that won’t slow you down.
For a limited time, you can snag a license for just $19.99 — nearly half off the usual cost. Only one person may use CrossOver per license, but you can install it on as many machines as you like.
