••• Cinch is compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan •••

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 1.2.1

• Critical fix for Cinch not working after November 10th, 2015.
• Fix for animation flicker on El Capitan.
• Fix for slow resizing on El Capitan.
• Improved app icon to better fit look of Yosemite and El Capitan.

Customer Reviews

Performs as promised

Way better than apple’s update that includes this feature to full screen two apps. It doesn’t support all applications, but Cinch does! I love it and use it everyday without even thinking about it.

Great App - Always Updating to Work with the Latest OS

This app is one of the best apps I’ve ever bought on the app store. The developers do a great job at keeping the app updated so that it works when new Operating Systems are released. Keep up the great work!

Always Use It

Great app. Would be tougher OS to use without it, as I use multiple windows at once & Cinch makes process of putting windows in their places easier and faster.
