Are there any differences between the version from the website and the one from the App Store?

Whether you download Merlin Project for your Mac from our website or from the App Store, the scope of functions and also the price is identical for both versions. The subscription is an in-app purchase.

Due to Apple's requirements, it is not allowed to unlock the App Store version with the subscription from our website, or vice versa.
