Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
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's 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!
What's New in Version 1.4.1
Fixed some compatibility issues with the new OS X
Just the app for having 2 apps side by side
This provides the same functionality that I miss from Windows 7 - being able to quickly put a window on one half of the screen. If your desktop spans 2 monitors you will need to create a new snap area within the app. Useful app if you've gone with one high-res monitor rather than 2 monitors.
Windows Snap-To comes to the Mac
Excellent app. Does exactly what it says. For me, the ability to define custom regions to snap-to is the top feature.
This app is well worth the purchase! Love the split feature, very useful if you have a big screen.
