BetterSnapTool

Manage your window positions and size from your keyboard

BetterSnapTool allows you to easily manage your window positions and sizes by either dragging them to one of the screen’s corners or to the top, left or right side of the screen. This enables you to easily maximize your windows, position them side by side or even resize them to quarters of the screen.

Jesse Payne- Product Designer
Quick and handy way to resize windows when multi/tasking. Second thing I install on a new machine after Alfred!

Simple, low-cost. Most of our team uses it.
Jeff Needles- Data @ Houseparty & Maker of Things
Resizing windows is a pain but also super useful... No more pain!

Caffeine

Keep your Mac from going to sleep

It's a great app, using it since I got my first mac. So easy to deal with and does the job.
Andrew Dominic Cirincione- UX Designer / Digital Strategist @ WMG
Great for presentations!
Øyvind Solstad ☀- Head of social media, VG
I use this all the time. Bartender (listed on this page) hides most menu bars, but Caffeine I have visible in the menu bar. Very useful for presentations.

Great alternative for music, really like to listen to some sounds while writing or reading before going to bed.

Great UI, easy to use. Simple concept but useful for a wide variety of situations.
Yaro Pat- Product owner, UX expert
My work is impossible without it. The app changes the way you perceive the concept of clipboard. It literally multiplies your clipboard and thus your productivity. What it does? It just remembers everything you ⌘С and shows it chronologically every time you ⌘⇧V, so that you can choose what to paste. Seems like an obvious enhancement, right? Well there is m… See more

You know how it goes: you copy a link, or a piece of text, intending to paste it - then you get distracted and copy something else before you get the chance. You then have to find and copy the firs...
Macworld
Ever since the earliest days of the Macintosh, the clipboard has been an indispensable part of our workflow. It's one of the unsung heroes of the modern desktop, but the ephemeral nature of the copy-and-paste model has trained us to immediately utilize the things that land on our clipboards, forcing us to constantly be aware of how we're use it.

Eugene Krupnov
Best for super-fast note taking. Plain text, quick search. Always available with one single gesture.
mark!- Sr. Social Media Manager, Red Bull
Essential tool as I do a ton of copying/pasting in my role as a Social Media Manager. It also is a godsend if you route your screenshot folder to Unclutter's dropdown folder. I have my directs download Unclutter, aText, BetterSnapTool as soon as they start working for me.
