••• Cinch is compatible with OS X 10.10 Yosemite •••

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

• Compatibility improvement for OS X 10.10 Yosemite including a new menu bar icon.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

I just swtiched from a pc to a mac this month (December 2014) and the ONE THING I was SOOOOO hating was there was no window snap! You have just made me 100% happier knowing that I made good choice in switching from pc to mac. The app was easy to install and it works just fine on every program/window I opened except Photoshop and Lightroom. But there really is no reason to use it on those programs I just wanted to see if it would work on those programs. As far as Cinch working on Safari, iTunes, App Store, Mail, iPhoto, Calendar, Maps, Pages, Numbers, Calculator, Contacts, Notes it worked PERFECTLY!!!!!!! If you have just switched from a pc to mac make sure to BUY this APP FIRST! That is IF Apple ever decides to add that feature into their operating systems.


Works as advertised.

Cinch does what it says it will do with no fuss. I use it constantly on Yosemite with a 24” LG, and don’t even think it is not part of the OS (which it should be!). Work on the left; movie on the right. ;-) Requires Accessibility.

I work a lot on iOS, so it seem a little pricey at $7; but, for some reasons, Mac apps are all expensive.

Runing Cinch in Yosemite

Soory, for any inconvence it was. As we used to say OE (Operator Error).They showed me how to use Cinch. The last post was very very wrong. If you are running Cinch in Yosemite DON’T. I have been using Cinch for years and never had a problem with it. It might be Cinch and not Yosemite. Don’t know yet emailed custumer support and no response yet. The new verison is Junk if you ask me.
