Window managing on Macs leaves much to be desired. This app has solved my issues with macOS's lack of built-in features since day one. Though there may be somewhat cheaper options, the constant updates and reliability of the app continue to make me a happy customer. (The app goes on sale so frequently that you really can't go wrong)
Dustin Knopoff- Student, CS/Design
Awesome, easy, and great priced window manager for Mac
Jarod Stewart- Sr. Software Engineer, Yonomi
Seriously one of the easiest apps to set up and use

Magnet, CrowdCafe's macOS window manager, may be the most helpful third-party application I've ever used. The unobtrusive tool helps keep my Mac desktop organized. With support for up to six desktops, the application enables moving and automatically resizing windows via keyboard shortcut commands, the menu bar, or simply dragging windows to new locations.

I used to use Spectacle (also good/free) but opted for Magnet (great/not free) because of the multitude of sizing options.

We've seen a few different tools for Windows-esque window management on Mac over the years, but none of those ever fit well with my workflow. Magnet is an app that's been around for a while, but a few recent updates have finally made it the app I need.
