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.

WIN windows performance on MAC
Turns your desktop to a cleaner and functional one: perfect for using multiple simple apps (like office apps, notes, messages) in one desktop.
Some apps still can’t be freely resizeable because it’s own (or the OS’) limitations, but in many cases it can be really helpful to look through the mess of open windows. Worth every penny: it can refund it’s price in a few workhours for you!
It's nice and it works pretty well
It's working as smoothly as possible and it doesn't even mess up the "hot corners" feature.
The only con is that you cannot hide it's icon on the menu bar. Sadly that is a deal breaker for people like me (who tries to keep these parts as clean as possible). I hope they will add an option for that.
Makes the Magic Mouse buggy
Ok, this is a fantastic app, BUT since I’ve installed it I had issues with my mouse, I’ve tried a bunch of solutions, reinstalled parts, reset system prefs, nothing helped.
Till I found out in a forum that Magnet can do such a thing with some apps…I’m experiencing this mainly in iTunes and Sketch (UI design app).
So, this is serius issue for me, I don’t want to turn on/off an app just because of a bug, until this is fixed I will use an other tool…
