••• 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.


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.

Works but is a little glitchy

The app works well most of the time and fills a need which apple overlooked. However, at times there are a few problems i have noticed. For instance it often does not resize certien windows such as the contacts. Also, sometimes I have trouble with web browsers. I have a singel tab opened in a web browser (firefox and chrome) and I go to size it but it will not generate the dotted lines. The workaround is that I drag and drop the tab like I am splitting it into another window. Afterwards cinch will work with the browser fine until I quit and relaunch it.

But bottom line, for the price, the program works well enough that I would recomend getting it.
