One notable Mac trend of the 21st century is the proliferation of apps. Open apps. Apps with windows that are stacked behind windows behind even more app windows.
The Mac’s screen– MacBook or iMac or 27-inch Cinema Display– hasn’t grown in size in relation to the number of frequently used apps and windows.
Even worse, Mac OS X doesn’t always remember where app windows were last placed, which only adds to the clutter.
Windownaut to the rescue. Yes, your Mac does windows of a different kind. App window organization. Think about this typical scenario.
You have a dozen Mac apps open and running, and, as you work, you switch back and forth between apps, and documents, and their windows, and suddenly– clutter is everywhere. Window clutter.
Windownaut lets you place app windows in specific locations on the screen and remembers where they were placed.
Keyboard shortcuts let you define any one of eight locations on your Mac’s screen.
That makes it easy to move app windows wherever you need, and Windownaut remembers where they are.
Remember that little green zoom button in the upper left corner of every Mac app window? Yeah, the one that no one uses any more because it’s mostly worthless.
Windownaut makes it useful. Click and select one of the window placement options (no need to remember the keyboard shortcuts).
Windownaut also lets you point to an app window and use the keyboard to move and place the window wherever you want.
The only limitation is Windownaut’s grid. You get eight screen positions from which to choose. App windows simply snap into place. That helps you rid the Mac’s screen of the growing clutter of app windows.
