Managing windows can be frustrating, requiring precision control of your mouse or trackpad for clicking, dragging, pushing and pulling your windows to the size and position you desire. Even with all this work, it’s very difficult to get windows exactly where you want them, so most of the time windows are left scattered all over the screen.
Divvy, a solution for both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, is an entirely new way of managing your windows. It allows you to quickly and efficiently "divvy up" your screen into exact portions. This lets you take maximum advantage of your screen real estate without any hassle at all. Window management has never been this easy.
With Divvy, it’s as simple as a single click and drag in the Divvy interface and your window will be resized and moved to a relative portion of the screen. If that seems like too much work, you can go ahead and create as many different shortcuts as you'd like that resize and move your windows.
Divvy is designed to be quick, simple and elegant, staying out of your way as much as possible while providing the most powerful window management available today.

Ok, but not worth $14
I bought this because of everyones glowing reviews, but I was a little disappointed.
I use multiple monitors, and I switch my windows between monitors all day. I really only needed this tool to do 1 thing, be able to split windows into 50% left and right, and to full screen the window (as in full width). Should be pretty simple for a tool like this except when switching between windows on different monitors it constantly get's the resize wrong and I find I need to move and Shift+Click the green maximize button to fix it, which kind of defeats the purpose of this tool.
For example, I have a browser open on my 30" monitor, I press my hot key for full screen and it works fine. I move the window down onto my 13" retina display and press the same hot key and it now sizes the window about 200px too big to fit and I lose my tool bar and have to manually resize the window.
Now Iv just introduced a second step into my window resizing process that wasn't there before. In the end, I just end up doing it my self manually.
Sometimes it does this, sometime's it doesn't. I can't figure out why. If I'm only using 1 monitor, then the problem goes away. So obviously the switch between retina and non-retina is less than perfect.
Bit annoyed I spent $14
Minor Issue, Great Service
The software and service are both top notch. I have been using Divvy with no issues at all for years. I recently had a minor issue on first install on my new Macbook Pro Retina, but after emailing support and receiving a recommendation on a resolution within a few hours, it’s working flawlessly and I’m once again a happy customer. Divvy is such an essential part of my workflow, it was one of the first things I installed on my new machine.
I’m definitely a “power user” and have multiple windows open on my Mac at all times. I find that Divvy is a great tool to keep them all managed. At first I thought, “wow, I dunno if it’s worth that much money”, but I went ahead and gave them the benefit of the doubt. You know what? I’m glad I did. It’s worth the money you pay.
