••• 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.
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.
THANK YOU AGAIN!!!!
Just like it’s part of the system
This app works without any issues that i’ve seen. It starts with the computer just like anything else. I use 3 screens in total, and it allows me to move everything to the right place and size with ease. There’s that old saying “if you’ve done something right it’s like you’ve don’t nothing at all” That’s how smooth it runs. I forget it’s even a third party app. Also when I installed I contacted customer service to get the uninstall details from the free version I was using, and they were fast, and on point. Super happy with this app. I hope they make some package deals of there other programs to buy in the future as I would like to add on more later.
Great Extra Functionality
This app implements a feature that ought to be built-in anyway, as it is in Windows. Window snapping is extremely convenient when working, say with numerical data in Excel while writing a report on that data in word, or editing HTML next to a browser window.
I would really love to see, though, an option in Cinch’s preferences to divide the screen up four ways if so desired by the user.
