Every time you move your focus from one app to another, 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 of your display, you size a window into half of the screen. And by dragging apps to corners, you snap them into quarters. Slide them to the bottom edge to create thirds. Do the same on an ultra-wide monitor and sort your 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 a little icon sitting in the menu bar where you can find a predefined set of hotkeys or create yours.

Just too good

I was from a windows background. I missed some of those docking features a lot and was always looking for something like this, until I found this in one of the tutorials. I knew, this is a must have. I would suggest this for anyone who needs to juggle bettwen multiple windows and have to see all those on same screen at same point of time. Buy this, productivity increases, it saves a whole lot of time. The multi-mointor support is also nice. Thank you Magent !!!

Magnet for mega monitor splitting

Using Magnet with a large monitor for splitting the screen realstate to view sidebyside multiple apps is really a rewarding experience. A good aid to productivity.
The keyboard shortcut defaults of intitutive and nimble to use on a daily basis. Recommend this.

New feature request. Mac’s mission control supported through drag and drop on a standard 1/4 * 4 layout. will be easy and handy to just do mission control and drag each to quadrants


High Sierra has already has a function of split window.

I purchased it to check weather anything special. It is just ok ok software, Even macbook new osx has inbuilt function to split window. I tried to watch movie in safari window arranged by magnet, but when I maximise the only video, it do whole screen maximize. However, when u maximise a movie or video safari window splitted by inbuilt osx function, It only maximize the half side so that u can work on the other half. So I would say osx inbuilt function is better then this magnet. If u want to spend some money U can, but this software dont worth it.
