@mostarna @edvinsantonovs Same question here, Spectacle is great and configurable by the terminal. That means automation. The link took me to the buy page, didn't see what's different. Is there a trial or a review copy? I'm not sold right now.

@chrismessina Magnet is one of the best money I've ever spent on the Mac App Store! Can't recommend it enough.

@stephanehaddad @jibe_84 Can you elaborate on this? I'm a Spectacle fan for its simplicity. How would Magnet improve my workflow?

@fishsander @stephanehaddad @jibe_84 I prefer Spectacle for the keyboard shortcuts... no mention on Magnet's site of keyboard shortcuts.

@blawrencepdx @stephanehaddad @jibe_84 Same. He mentions Mouse gestures, but using a mouse is overrated 👀

@olekeding Im surprised this is not higher up. The amount of customization you can do with BTT is insane. I had a ton of gestures setup but I was using a different app for window management. Took me 15 minutes to do it all in BTT. Secondly, the dev for BTT is an awesome guy providing lightning fast updates.
