Activating your license.

When you first launch Blocs you will be asked if you would like to run the app as a trial or if you would like to activate the full app using a valid license number. If you have purchased a license from us, after you have completed your transaction, you will have been automatically redirected to a page containing your number. As well as this, you will also receive an email from us containing your license number.

Didn't get an email?

If you didn’t receive a license number via email, please check your spam inbox. Our emails can occasionally be mistaken for spam due to the fact they contain odd character combinations, i.e. your license number..

Activating Your License

Activating your copy of Blocs is very simple. When you choose to activate your license, you will be presented with the License Details window.


In the first input field labelled License Number, enter your valid Blocs license number. In the second input field labelled Email, enter the email address used when you purchased your copy of Blocs.


After you have populated both input fields, click the button labelled Activate License. Blocs will now run on your Mac as a fully licensed copy.

Blocs Plus – In App Upgrade

If you upgraded to Blocs Plus, after initially purchasing Blocs, then you will receive an additional license number via email that unlocks the extra Blocs Plus features. During the in-app upgrade process, Blocs will automatically use this new license number to instantly switch on the Blocs Plus features. However, if you move Macs and need to access the Blocs Plus features on a fresh install, you will first need to activate Blocs with your initial Blocs license number and restart Blocs.

Once Blocs has been restarted, head up to the upgrade to Blocs Plus option, found in the help menu and click the button labelled Enter License, located in the bottom right corner.


This will present you with additional input fields to enter the Blocs Plus license number you received when you used the in-app upgrade method to access the additional Blocs Plus features. Once you have entered your Blocs Plus license number and purchase email address, click the button labelled Activate License.
