BetterSnapTool allows you to easily manage your window positions and sizes by either dragging them to one of the screen's corners or to the top, left or right side of the screen. This enables you to easily maximize your windows, position them side by side or even resize them to quarters of the screen.

If you need even more than those standard snap areas, BetterSnapTool now allows you to create your own, custom snap areas anywhere on your display.

To be even more productive you can also set custom keyboard shortcuts in order to move and resize your windows.

Because there are so many positions available, BetterSnapTool can also pop up an overview menu from which you can select the one position you want.

You can also customize what happens after right-clicking on one of the buttons on the top left of a window.

More features included are:
• move or resize the window below the cursor while holding customizable modifier keys.
• select what happens when double-clicking a windows titlebar

BetterSnapTool is very customizable and will change the way you work with your Mac!

It supports multiple monitors, hidden docks etc..
You can change the design of the preview overlays and even set application specific snapping sizes!

BetterSnapTool works with almost every application, only some apps with non-standard windows can't be supported.

I'm always open for new ideas, so don't hesitate and ask!

This review is long overdue because I’ve been happy with BetterSnapTool for so long. The app is perfect for what I need and the customisations are very nice. I use it to make smaller windows and full screen windows. This sounds like a simple thing but I’ve never been able to do this easily with a Mac. However, this app fixed that for me. When I bought this app several years ago, I didn’t expect it to be constantly updated and supported for so long. It has outlived my mac and I currently use it on my new mac. It is such an amazing app and I believe it should be an essential for any mac installation!

Elegant solution to window management - excellent!


This indispensible app is among the first apps I install when setting up a new computer! User customisable snap areas allow you to tailor layouts to suit your needs, making it easy to set up your workspace/desktop when using larger or wider monitors.

Love it


If you are a windows user who wants to be able to be able to snap windows to half or full screen (and plenty of other options), this app does it. Also allows you to maximise without going full screen. I love it.
