Managing windows can be frustrating, requiring precision control of your mouse or trackpad for clicking, dragging, pushing and pulling your windows to the size and position you desire. Even with all this work, it’s very difficult to get windows exactly where you want them, so most of the time windows are left scattered all over the screen.
Divvy, a solution for both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, is an entirely new way of managing your windows. It allows you to quickly and efficiently "divvy up" your screen into exact portions. This lets you take maximum advantage of your screen real estate without any hassle at all. Window management has never been this easy.
With Divvy, it’s as simple as a single click and drag in the Divvy interface and your window will be resized and moved to a relative portion of the screen. If that seems like too much work, you can go ahead and create as many different shortcuts as you'd like that resize and move your windows.
Divvy is designed to be quick, simple and elegant, staying out of your way as much as possible while providing the most powerful window management available today.

Absolutely mission critical! A tool so useful I forget it’s not part of OSX.
Clicking the green plus sign on an app delivers unpredictable results. Maybe now the app is half screen, maybe it’s full screen. Different apps behave differently, and if you want to move them around, you have to click and drag, click and drag…
:Infomercial voice: There’s GOTTA be a better way!
Divvy sets up a user-defined grid that allows you to move things around with ease. But wait, there’s more! With keyboard shortcuts, you can define grid settings and move things with a keystroke (I use t = top half, b= bottom half, a = full screen, 1 = top left corner, 2 = top right corner, as well as others. So when I launch an collection of apps, like a browser, a text editor and a terminal, I can see everything easily. When I use Logic, I can move my mixer around depending on what I’m working on.
It works great with multiple monitors as well.
I use Divvy LITERALLY hundreds of times a day, and it is absolutely mission critical to the way I work. I HIGHLY recommend this app to anybody who has lots of screen real estate, runs multiple programs at once, or is just very particular about how things are laid out. It will save you a ton of time.
Perfect window manager for my needs!
I’ve been using Divvy for years. It does exactly what I need it to do, which is allow me to create global shortcuts to quickly arrange windows. Sounds simple, but it’s a fundamental part of how I work. The grid layout is intuitive, and when I bought a laptop with a smaller screen I was happy to find that you can add rows/columns, giving you fine-grained control of window sizes. I was devastated when an update to OS X took the app out of commission, but the devs released a fix in less than two days! What more could you ask for?
The Best Windows Manager on App store!!!!!!
Divvy was one the first apps I ever downloaded from the app store back in 2011! Thank you for fixing bug, I was freaking out a bit, because its capabilities to shortcut precise customized screen placement is not matched by any other window management app on the store. I have actually tested a few out—for a fee—and come back to Divvy everytime! I’m not sure were my productivity level would be without this invaluable tool!!!!!
