Cinch

Version: 1.1.2 || Release Date: 2013-10-12 || License: Shareware ($6.99) Developer: Irradiated Software | App Owner: irradiated

Simple and elegant mouse-based window management

Cinch gives you simple, mouse-driven window management by defining the left, right, and top edges of your screen as 'hot zones'. Drag a window until the mouse cursor enters one of these zones then drop the window to have it cinch into place. Cinching to the left or right edges of the screen will resize the window to fill exactly half the screen, allowing you to easily compare two windows side-by-side (splitscreen). Cinching to the top edge of the screen will resize the window to fill the entire screen (fullscreen). Dragging a window away from its cinched position will restore the window to its original size.

If you prefer a keyboard-centric approach to window management, you might also take a look at our other products SizeUp or TwoUp. Use Cinch together with either SizeUp or TwoUp to cover both your mouse and keyboard needs.

I noticed an issue with cinch, when it is enabled periodically click stop working and you have to press alt+command+esc to activate it again. When I quit cinch everything works fine again, please check it out because cinch is great tool but this bug is very annoying, I'm on 10.6.2

oh great! this feature is actually the best feature from Windows 7 when I first saw it I said, "COOOL! I want this in my MAC! :P "

Thanks! :)

Great App, I really needed something like this... it works pretty perfect.

Programs like this are one of the best things about the mac, the ability to develop awesome small applications that make working with a Mac so much fun!
