I've been using Spectacles for a while, what are the benefits of Magnet?
Pavel KozarekMaker@mostarna · CrowdCafé
@edvinsantonovs Mouse gestures, better finish and reliability.

@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.

New in version 2.0: ・Left/Center/Right Thirds of the screen are now supported – Drag a window to the bottom edge of your screen to create third. You can also use default keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+D/F/G or create yours. ・Left Two Thirds & Right Two Thirds of the screen are now supported – Drag a window to the bottom edge of your screen and slide on it to create two thirds. You can also use default keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+E/T or create yours. ・Adobe Creative Cloud apps are now supported (since 2017 version). ・macOS 10.12 Sierra performance and stability is improved.
@chrismessina Magnet is one of the best money I've ever spent on the Mac App Store! Can't recommend it enough.

The best I use. There is also an free open source one. Can't remember the name. Maybe "spectacle"

@stephanehaddad I'm using spectale on my mac, what are the features will make me switch to this app? if you've got the answer, thanks!
Stephane@stephanehaddad · Co-founder & - LA
@jibe_84 Better finish & integration, plus advanced features to split the screen in multiple windows.

@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.
Sander Visser@fishsander · Making
@blawrencepdx @stephanehaddad @jibe_84 Same. He mentions Mouse gestures, but using a mouse is overrated 👀

What's the key benefits vs. "BetterSnapTool"?
Pavel KozarekMaker@mostarna · CrowdCafé
@olekeding Simplicity and reliability.
Parwinder Bhagat@parwinder · Software Architect @ Pampered Chef
@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.
