Every time you move a content from one app to the other, compare data side by side or multitask in any other way, you need all the windows arranged accordingly. Magnet makes this process clean and simple.
In one drag to the edge, you size a window into half of your screen. And by dragging windows to the corners, you snap them into quarters. Slide them to the bottom edge of your display to create thirds. Do the same on your ultra-wide monitor and arrange windows into sixths. Taking advantage of such arrangements eliminates app switching and greatly enhances workspace efficiency.
Magnet supports keyboard shortcuts as well, for every command it has to offer. There is that little icon sitting in the Menu Bar where you can find a predefined set or create yours.

Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic app, however..
This is a great app and makes arranging your workflow super easy.
One feature of the latest version is the suitability of ultrawide monitors. This allows you to divide the screen into 6 parts. Although sound in theory, each part is very small and may have limited functionality. It would be useful to have the ability to turn this feature off. I click to fit my windows using my mouse and never use the keyboard shortcuts, therefore I now have the added issue of ensuring that my window doesn’t snap to a 6th size. This take longer and is a little frustrating.
If you don’t have this app at all, get it! It’s awesome. If you have the older version and use it like I do, skip this upgrade.
I had to enter my time machine and restore the previous version, however for those that do not have this ability, allowing users to turn this feature off or install legacy versions would be a useful one.
Great App - Can't imagine going back to it
(Trust me, I hardly ever write reviews & always click "next time" or "don't ask me again") At first, I thought I wasted my money on a really simple app, and so I requested a refund on my first purchase. My life went downhill from then. It became extremely frustrating for me to click/drag my screens all the time! So I purchased it again a couple of days ago - it was the best $1.50 I have ever spent. I use it literally every single day when I need to be looking at multiple windows at once - I'm using it right now as well. It's a great way to neatly and quickly organise your screen. It may appear as an awfully simple app, but it's superb because it's simple and easy to use. Seriously, you will not regret investing your money into buying this app. A big thanks to the developers of this app! :)
Just what I needed
Coming from Windows PCs this is one of the features of Windows that I missed the most, and I’m so happy to have found magnet that does the almost-exact same job, but better! Happy to have gotten it during discount too (thanks to the dev team!). Honestly one of the best purchases I’ve made on the Mac App Store.
Sometimes the window won’t resize to one of the smaller settings because it can’t go any smaller which is a shame…but guess it can’t be helped. So if you run a lot of apps that you know can’t resize very small you might want to check before you commit to the purchase; that said, this is not a problem that could be solved by other similar apps and there aren’t that many apps that can’t resize small (and you probbaly don’t need most apps to be tiny anyway)
Thank you so much for this great app!
