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 enters 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 exactly half the screen, allowing you to easily compare two windows side-by-side (splitscreen). Cinching to the top edge of the screen will resize the window to fill the entire screen (fullscreen). Dragging a window away from its cinched position will restore the window to its original size.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!!!!

I love this tweak! It's hard to believe Windows would have a feature so useful that Apple has yet to implement. This does exactly what you are used to in the newer versions of Windows. It makes quick work out of sizing up two windows side-by-side on your desktop. Don't let the line about using Spaces scare you off - it works fine on my old 13" plastic Snow Leopard Macbook. If you hold the window to the right border of the screen momentarily it will take that window over to a new Space. If you simply pull the window to the right and let go it quickly it magically autosizes the window to 1/2 the screen. I've written far too many college papers before I discovered this app. It seems expensive for what it does, but what it does it does well. Thanks, developers.

Does what it needs to do for the most part

Doesn’t work with the App Store so I imagine it won’t work with a few other windows as well. But overall it does what it needs do. Unlike some other cheaper apps I feel that this one has long term support which was a big reason why I got it. The cheaper ones needed terminal commands or modifcations to bash. If I wanted to work on my system at that level to just install an app I would have gone to Linux.

Had trial…bought full version

I had the trial version for a while, but decided to buy the full version because the developers deserve compensation for such a useful app. I downloaded the trial from their website and then bought the full version on the App Store. It didnt work at first but the Irradiated Software website had troubleshooting for this exact problem and it works great as always. Totally worth it.
