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.

Ratings and Reviews
Does exactly what it says.
Magnet does exactly what is says. I 've never experienced issues, even within the context of a two large monitor setup. In any case, it would be nice if it provided for the definition of custom regions. Finally, it would be great if it supported the capability of handling the simultaneous resizing of two vertically adjacent windows in case any of them is resized (i.e. similar to the behaviour implemented by MS Windows window-manager).
Essential for big monitors
Not really usefull with a laptop screen, but a must if you have a big one!
It offers functionality which I consider should have been built into the operating system itself.
One of the most usefull add-ons
This add-on does exactly what it promises and it does it really really well! I am very happy with this purchase.
Only minor downside (and the reason for 4 stars) is that at times the add-on interferes somehow with OS X and multi-gestures on the touchpad are not recognised. This does not happen very often and a restart resolves it but still it is an issue which I hope they will fix in a future update.
