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.

Amazing app at an affordable pricing
You might be wondering what’s so special about a window management tool. A lot. I always have some problems with performing multi-tasking on my 27” iMAC ever since I bought it. Somehow, it just became a habit for me to alt+tab to switch between programs. Not exactly the best way, but it got me through all these while. It’s only until I pondered across Magnet and decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. Now I really got to say that my productivity increased and with such an easy way to toogle the sizes of the application windows, I felt that the real estate of my 27” iMAC is now utilised in the proper way.
Not to forget to look at the price. This simply beats any other similar apps hands-down.
This should be baked into MacOS
The one thing i can’t stand about MacOS compared to Windows 10 is window management. Windows just does it better, it’s much easier and more intuitive to snap windows to the side when you’re multitasking.
This tool gives you exactly that windows experience, plus a multitude of custom keyboard shortcuts and other options. It’s fantastic. I’m not sure why Apple hasn’t bought over this tool yet and baked into into MacOS - it’s a godsend to the OS horrible non-responsive half-half window solution.
Easy to use … increase productivities ..
Easy to use . increase productivities … although it seems simple but simple short cut to rerrange window make it much easier to switch between Apps especially when you are using multiple apps at the same time .. like using whatsapp .. note and preview to refer to information or notes .. and copy them ..
