Moom allows you to easily move and zoom windows—on one display, or to another display—using either the mouse or the keyboard. Moom lets you...
• Hover over the green button and choose from five preset size/location options in a pop-up palette
• Use a grid to 'draw' a window's desired size and location
• Define custom controls to move and zoom, move to other display, center, resize, and more
• Chain custom controls together to execute complex window management tasks
• Save window layouts to easily recreate a desired window arrangement at any time
• Automatically activate saved window layouts on changes in monitor layout, as in when you disconnect from your work display and then open your laptop at home
• Use keyboard mode to do all of this, and more, without ever touching a mouse
Once you've tried Mooming your windows, you'll never go back to simply moving and zooming them again.
What's New in Version 3.1

• Resolved some issues with saved window layouts and Terminal windows
• Other minor fixes
Makes life so easy
This app is awesome. It makes screen real estate priorities super simple. It takes a little getting used to the macros, but it’s super easy to customize window sizing and controls.
Suggestions (sorry if these are already features, but I can’t seem to figure them out): Allow me to set arrangement for multiple desktops with one shortcut, allow me to use the keyboard to send windows from one desktop to another. Allow me to rearrange my desktops with the keyboard, send them to other displays, etc. Would love it if Moom recognized the apps I regularly have open and automatically placed them in their prearranged spot based on where I have them for certain contexts (1 display, 2, 3, etc).
Thanks for the support, you’ve made a great app with tons more potential.
Pro: The layouts are easily customizable in that you don’t have to read textual descriptions but rather view graphic depictions of the layout you want to use for each window—which can be done simply by hovering over the green maximize button on the corner of each window.
Cons: The pricepoint of this app seems relatively expensive for its performance. Windows for apps such as Keynote don’t cooperate fully with the command to align to a certain place on the screen. For instance, when splitting the screen to have one window on the left and one window on the right, Keynote overlaps the other window and blocks whatever I need to see with the two windows up simultaneously.
One of my Favorite Utilities
Definitely one of my favorite Mac utility apps. It makes screen snapping extremelly easy and quick. I love that I can use both keyboard shortcuts and mouseover/mouse movements with this app - especially when I’m on my MacBook vs. iMac or differently when my MacBook is docked with an external screen and keyboard vs. traveling.
My only complaint is the manual change for the hotkeys needed between use modes (docked/traveling) on my MacBook. I prefer using the number pad on my larger keyboard when docked where the MBP built-in keyboard of course doesn’t have that.
