••• Cinch is compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan •••

Cinch gives you simple, mouse or trackpad-driven window management by defining the left, right, and top edges of your screen as 'hot zones'. Drag a window until the cursor hits one of these zones then drop the window to have it cinch into place.

Cinching to the left or right edges of the screen will resize the window to fill half the screen, allowing you to easily compare two windows side-by-side (splitscreen).

Cinching to the top edge of the screen will maximize the window to fill the entire screen (fullscreen).

Dragging a window away from its cinched position will restore the window to its original size.

What's New in Version 1.2.1

• Critical fix for Cinch not working after November 10th, 2015.
• Fix for animation flicker on El Capitan.
• Fix for slow resizing on El Capitan.
• Improved app icon to better fit look of Yosemite and El Capitan.

Customer Reviews

Great support

I was surpised at how fast this guy response to email support.
I like the app and recommended this to everyone of my friends.


Indispensable app

I’ve been using Cinch for a few years now. I thought the window resizing feature in El Capitan would make Cinch obsolete - but nope - Cinch is still the far more intuitive implementation of window seizing/alignment. Apple’s version is overthought and crappy. Cinch does one thing great - and its amazing how such a simple app can prove to be so useful over time. Simplicity takes a lot of work and Cinch is an example of that.

Too expensive

I honestly cannot find anything that justifies the price for such a simple app with limited options. BetterSnap Tool is way cheaper (less than a third of the price) and offers a lot more customization and settings. I knew about BetterSnap before I bought this app.
