Jira Discontinues Catalyst Mac App


Our sole focus is ensuring you have the best possible experience with Jira so for that reason we are sunsetting the Jira Cloud for Mac app and focusing all energy on building outstanding performance across the most powerful versions of Jira Cloud.


Change is never easy, but the good news is that not only will your experience with Jira’s web and native mobile apps be just as good as the Mac app[…]

Konrad Kołakowski:

Ugh, bad news for Mac Catalyst unfortunately, and a bad news for all JIRA users on the Mac. Sure, desktop app wasn’t feature complete, but it was way faster (!) and consumed less memory[…]

Steve Troughton-Smith:

Bad news for the Mac if Apple’s two new UI frameworks, and an exciting CPU transition, aren’t enough to get companies to care about it

JIRA cloud is the only web app I use that requires a fibre connection to approximate any sense of speed. Reloading a tab to a ticket super imposed over the board view easily takes 5 seconds on my gigabit connection over wifi.

The max app was several times faster however it was unable to consistently position the cursor in a textarea and there were other basic problems that revealed not enough card and attention was budgeted.
