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
I use a Windows computer at work and got used to the aero snap on Win 10. I missed it a lot on my Mac and i was extremely excited to see that Magnet does the job perfectly. It would be absolutely awesome if when you snap a window you would get to choose a 2nd app to snap on the other side of the screen and have them side by side (again to make it look more like windows).
Easy to use, money well spent - 1 euro or more :)
It is great, but there is a problem with the mouse click if I use magnet and google chrome version 61. The click is not working sometimes. If I close magnet it’s all perfect. I don’t know if this issue is from Magnet current version or from Google Chrome. This is happen only if you have an external mouse attached, not on touchpad.
Otherwise is a great application.
Chrome + Magnet = No Love
Unfortunatley there is a huge issue with Chrome browser and Magnet app.
Long story short you can t use both… If magnet is running you will have huge click problems in chrome. More often than not the click won t work and you will have to prest 4-5 times for one action. If you do so the “productivity” kinda goes away.
I give it two stars couse other than that it seems to work just fine.
P.S i did a lot of research and many seem to have this kind of problem. Hoping for a fix!
