Every Mac user with power user inclinations has the same problem. The Mac’s screen real estate can get clogged up with too many apps and their windows. From big screen iMacs to MacBook Pro models with Retina display, there are just not enough pixels on a screen to handle the app window clutter for those of us who slave over a hot keyboard all day and into the night.
End the screen clutter with an elegant Mac utility which massages the OCD gene into submission. It’s called SizeUp and it works so well that those who use it wish Apple would incorporated the features into OS X. It’s the missing window manager for OS X.
Of all the window managers for the Mac this is the one I recommend because it’s simple to setup and use and just works. Click the Menubar to select a screen location for an app window.
Instead of dragging app windows around the screen to get them out of the way or sized up one next to the other, SizeUp does it instantly.
Windows can be placed half screen, left or right, top or bottom. Or, quarter screen in any quadrant of the Mac’s screen. It works on the Mac’s screen, connected displays, and even on Spaces.
Mac power users will appreciate the global keyboard shortcuts, and the options to set the edge margins. There are settings to put an app window dead center on the Mac’s screen, a SnapBack option to restore a window to its original size and location, and go to fullscreen mode, too.
SizeUp improves your workflow because you can set app windows to be placed in a specific screen location so they’re always there, always available, only a click away– but they go back when you’re done.
If there’s anything missing, and this is more of a nit than anything, it would be an option to simply ‘click’ (or hit a keyboard shortcut) and have all open windows become nicely tiled into quadrants, but I prefer to put windows where I want them to go.
Nicely done. Works well.
