Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Simplicity, configurable keyboard shortcuts, doesn't get in your way, free and opensource

    Cons: 

    No mouse dragging behaviour

    I like this tool. It's simple, free and doesn't get in your way. You just set the hotkeys you want to use and manage your windows with comfort. It's also open source: https://github.com/eczarny/spectacle

@nivo0o0 Does this work for apps and software? Tabs won't work on Scrivener which I use to write.

@imkevinxu Yup, that's what I use in my workflow too. Shortcuts are a time saver.

@imkevinxu Divvy vs Spectacle which do you like better?
@joshdance @imkevinxu Honestly I moved on to ShiftIt (OpenSource and FREE on GitHub).

What I love about Spectacle is that it's all hot key based...so great for doing development on Mac

I've been using a similar app called Cinch for a while. You drag the windows to resize (side by side, one in every corner, etc.). It now feels weird when I am on a Mac without it. http://www.irradiatedsoftware.co...

@jasongurwin Came here to say this. Cinch is the best.

Been using spectacle for a while and really wish Apple had this functionality built into their OS. Also great to see the code on Github: https://github.com/eczarny/spect...

tom meagher@tomfme · now is good.
@michaelcarrano I agree it needs to be built in. Probably one of the only decent things on Windows (I cannot believe I just said that!).
