Paw is a REST client that allows you to test your API calls. This client is a premium full-featured tool available only on Mac OS.

Unlike other competitors like Postman and Insomnia, Paw is Mac OS native code which leaves a look-and-feel that blends with the system.

Top features include:

  • The HTTP client which allows making all kind of HTTP requests.
  • API description that enables the description and typing of each parameter and is fully compliant with Swagger, RAML, and API Blueprint description files.
  • Works well with teams, you can share all your APIs descriptions, sync your projects, and create snapshots so you can rollback if something does not work well for you.
  • Paw also allows you to create branches, so you can modify your API as you like without compromising your team's work.

Paw does not offer a free version, although it provides a 30-day trial. You can then purchase the full version for $49.99. The software also provides a 30% student discount.

It seems like a stable app. Something I did notice is that the client does not frequently update, unlike their competition, which updates most of the time at least once a month.
