If there’s a hallmark distinction for using a Mac in the 21st century it’s the proliferation of apps. There are more apps than ever. The Mac’s Dock is crowded. The Menubar is crowded. The screen is crowded with app windows and they’re scattered all over.
Fullscreen mode in OS X helps to relieve some of the window clutter, but makes it impossible to bounce from one app window to another. For that you need a Window Magnet.
Even though our Mac’s screens are larger than ever, the screen real estate is limited, but the number of open apps (and their windows) is growing. The least expensive way to organize windows is to move them around manually but Window Magnet automates the process.
Drag an app’s window into the left, right, top or bottom half or a corner of the screen and the window snaps into place and stays there.
Window Magnet has it’s own version of full screen. Simply drag a window to the top of the screen and it snaps into position– full screen, but with the Menubar.
Speaking of Menubar, that’s where all the features and preferences reside, but you can setup and use keyboard shortcuts to move app windows into a section of the screen without using the mouse or trackpad.
Everything you need to manage windows is contained in the Menubar pull down menus. Set the keyboard shortcuts. Manage windows on external displays (great for a MacBook with a display attached).
One cool feature is the easy restore option. Drag a window away from the docked location and it snaps back into the original shape and size.
There’s no trial-before-you-buy option for Window Magnet but at 99-cents there’s not much to complain about.
