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 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!

Best Dollar Ever Spent

When I switched jobs my new workplace gave us all macbook airs over the traditional Lenovos. I had never used a mac before, but my son had. After my initial frsutration with the OS, my son told me that I had to get this app. This was the first app that i ever got, and I use it multiple times a day every day. It has never let me down, and is simple to install and use. Makes the mac feel just that little bit more inviting to use.

Great app, could be excellent

This all does what it claims to do just fine. However, to make a great app excellent, one thing comes to my mind. Please, add the support to remember particular window layout and restore it by dropping that window onto a particular snap area. I mean, unique one-on-one relationship that would trigger remembering and re-laying out exact columns, their widths and visibility of them. That would be EXCELLENT!


At work I use two monitors, so positioning windows is no big deal. On my iMac at home it is. This app makes it so fast to use multiple apps at the same time! I’m an IT professional and an experienced MAC OS user and I highly recommend this.
