A designer’s ruler with superpowers!
Designed for artists & designers to check design composition and proportions. Goldie rulers overlay on your mac screen to visually check the golden ratio and more.
Goldie App puts an overlay ruler on your screen to simplify golden ratio referencing. Adapting to background color, rulers are always visible on screen.
RULERS FOR EVERY JOB
Apart from golden ratio, the app references custom proportions like the rule of thirds, the regular and diagonal rule of thirds, and baroque proportions. To switch between different variations, use 6 ruler themes integrated into the app.
GOLDEN RATIO CALCULATOR
You don’t have to know math to calculate golden ratio in design. Goldie gives you exact numbers, always. Measure from any ratio point. On or off screen, it works with all design projects you can think of.
DESIGNED FOR EASE
Art is all about proportions, but interrupting your artistic flow with math is just wrong. Goldie App was designed to help you while staying out of your way. It sits in the top menu bar where you can easily grab it and puts transparent overlay on your projects, barely noticeable.
Packed with the native mac interactions you are used to (ex. hold down "Shift" for snap-rotate or dragging)
Dictate the rules and Goldie will follow. For your convenience, the app is based on commands that are native to macOS. But you can personalize it even more. Create custom shortcuts for showing the ruler or toggling between ruler themes, lightning fast.
BEAUTIFUL DARK MODE
If you are more creative in the darkness, Goldie will give you the darkness. It will automatically switch between light and dark themes based on your OS preferences, looking sharp, always.

This is exactly the kind of tool I had dreamed in my head one day that I wondered if I could find on the app store. Love both modes, it rocks and its really refreshing to see devs with a sense of humor.
The secondary monitor thing is an issue: If I launch an overlay from monitor #2 I cannot do anything with it to manipulate it. I must go back to monitor #1 and relaunch. I agree with an earlier post recommending you fix pleez. I gave you one more star than he did in good faith :)

Hello Goldie! Thank you so much for your appreciation!
I'm happy to let you know that the secondary monitor bug was fixed in version 1.2.
Please follow these steps to enable it https://goldieapp.com/multi-display/ and enjoy goldie on both of your screens! (As well as all the additional rulers we added!)
A great little tool for a guy with a bad eye for layouts!
Works great, actively developed and very handy. It also make you think properly when doing a layout. It is nice to have tools like this when you are a jack of all trades business owner.
Clean and convenient
I didn't notice any bugs, or they have since been fixed. I like this app quite a bit. The design of the app reflects the use of it beautifully. Nice work!
