Every time you move a content from one app to the other, compare data side by side or multitask in any other way, you need all the windows arranged accordingly. Magnet makes this process clean and simple.

In one drag to the edge, you size a window into half of your screen. And by dragging windows to the corners, you snap them into quarters. Slide them to the bottom edge of your display to create thirds. Do the same on your ultra-wide monitor and arrange windows into sixths. Taking advantage of such arrangements eliminates app switching and greatly enhances workspace efficiency.

Magnet supports keyboard shortcuts as well, for every command it has to offer. There is that little icon sitting in the Menu Bar where you can find a predefined set or create yours.

Great. Slightly glitchy

As a former user of Cinch (also good), I like this because it allows quadrants (i.e. up to four panels in corners) rather than just left/right like Cinch. The app is a bit glitchy. If you have hot corners setup (like me) then some weird resizing/resolution issues ensue if you simulatenouslly set off both hot corners and Magnet. Overall, great app, though. This functionality should have been built into macOS, but good for the third parties for stepping in and fixing the poor design!

I was skeptical. But this app is very versatile and useful -- particularly on a laptop where the real estate on the screen is limited. It saves a lot of hassle from having to frequently open and close windows.
