Membership in A.P.P.L.E.
Apple Pugetsound Program Library Exchange (A.P.P.L.E.) was one of the first official Apple User Groups in the United States. Founded in February 1978 by Val J. Golding, A.P.P.L.E. grew quickly and grew to almost 50,000 members by 1985. Since many of our members have been Apple users since the first computers were produced, we have one of the most knowledgeable groups in the world.
The base level membership is only $27.95 per year and is always due on the month you pay. Higher levels of membership are considered donation levels – the service provided is the same, but you get the satisfaction of knowing that your membership is helping to bring more software and other resources online. To join, please click the SUBSCRIBE button on the right side of this page. If you’re already a member – thank you – please click the LOGIN button above and enjoy the extra menu contents.
A.P.P.L.E. supports users of all Apple computers and devices, both vintage systems like the Apple II and Macintosh and modern platforms like iOS. Through the “Users Helping Users” concept, our group provides a great resource for information, hardware, software, and documentation for Apple products.
