BetterSnapTool allows you to easily manage your window positions and sizes by either dragging them to one of the screen's corners or to the top, left or right side of the screen. This enables you to easily maximize your windows, position them side by side or even resize them to quarters of the screen.

If you need even more than those standard snap areas, BetterSnapTool now allows you to create your own, custom snap areas anywhere on your display.

To be even more productive you can also set custom keyboard shortcuts in order to move and resize your windows.

Because there are so many positions available, BetterSnapTool can also pop up an overview menu from which you can select the one position you want.

You can also customize what should happen after right-clicking one of the buttons on the top left of a window.

More features included are:
• move or resize the window below the cursor while holding customizable modifier keys.
• select what happens when double-clicking a window's titlebar

BetterSnapTool is very customizable and will change the way you work with your Mac!

It supports multiple monitors, hidden docks etc..
You can change the design of the preview overlays and even set application specific snapping sizes!

BetterSnapTool works with almost every application, only some apps with non-standard windows can't be supported.

This review is long overdue because I’ve been happy with BetterSnapTool for so long. The app is perfect for what I need and the customisations are very nice. I use it to make smaller windows and full screen windows. This sounds like a simple thing but I’ve never been able to do this easily with a Mac. However, this app fixed that for me. When I bought this app several years ago, I didn’t expect it to be constantly updated and supported for so long. It has outlived my mac and I currently use it on my new mac. It is such an amazing app and I believe it should be an essential for any mac installation!

Using a mac without this is stupid and counter productive

I’ve been using bettersnap since 2014, it’s by far the most essential app you can buy off the App Store. I just recently upgraded my macbook pro and using bettersnap is so ingrained in my use that i had to install it straight away. It really does increase your productivity and ability to quickly change and snap windows for different work flows. ALSO apple what the hell are you doing with this ‘nickname’ submission for each review, it impossible to find a nickname not being used, just attribute somesort of number to each appleid?

Finally - Something to match Windows Snapping

I have been both a Windows and Mac user for my proffession and have always been a little frustrated at the differences between these two OS. In particular how convenient snapping in on my Windows machine. However, no longere! This solves the problem on Mac!!!! Super easy and exactly what I would expect. My one comment would be that Mac should strike a deal with the developers of this ap to automatically include it in any purchase of a Mac device as it is a little anoying that this is free with Windows but not Mac.
