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. 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.

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!

Didn’t know how much i needed this until i tried it. Superb.


I knew this app was a good idea but it wasn’t until I got fed up juggling between screens late one night during a Coursera hands-on training (taking notes in browser tab, watching videos, clicking links to new resources and navigating new software for prac exercises) that I finally clicked the Magnet icon patiently waiting at the top of my screen and found sweet screen-real-estate relief in under a second.

How did I go without this for so long?

If you are like me and working on a small laptop full-time (13 inch MBP) across multiple apps/software/browser tabs/activities and are sick of constantly resizing and juggling windows you will be AMAZED at how easy and fast Magnet makes your workflow now.

Apparently the human brain processes visual information 60,000x faster than text. This must be why the visual menu is so rapid to use. The icons in the menu are so well designed it is faster and easier to understand than most everyday household appliances which means you can arrange open tabs and windows repeatedly without even thinking about it with a rapid click of one of the menu pictures.

This app is probably going to be with me forever now and live in the top 5 frequently used and loved.

Just what the doctor ordered


I’ve been a Mac user since 2007 and managed to avoid being pulled back to regular MS Windows use until 2016. Unfortunetly, I was dragged back for work. The only feature of Windows that I found myself missing when sitting back down at my Mac’s was the ability to snap windows to specific locations. This solves my very first-world problem incredibly well, and is one of the first bits of software I will install when setting up any new Mac. If you haven’t tried it, this really is just what the doctor ordered...
