It just works seamlessly.
This app is the sole reason I use a trackpad, even on my desktop setup. It's the most intuitive window manager for macOS by a long shot.
This is how Apple should have designed window management (and I wouldn't put it past them to include this functionality in a future OS release) - this is simple, intuitive, and addictive My one gripe - it is not keeping up with Apple OS releases. It crashes often with OSX Ventura, sometimes making it unusable.
I use this app every day, I can't live without it. PROS: - Fast - Low memory footprint - Beautiful - Does what it says it does CONS: - Use 2 external monitors and every time my Mac wakes up the windows don't save the position and are in the wrong place. A bit frustrating. Congrats for this amazing piece of software!
I love Swish. It is part of my everyday experience in Mac and I miss it when I use a Mac that does not have it. Please keep it going forever.
Main issue with Swish is it conflicts with BetterTouchTool. Which BTT is a more valuable app, so I'm unable to use Swish. With both apps running, it causes my trackpad to stop working randomly. Once Swish is closed, all works as expected. Support is non-existent. I attempted contact nearly several weeks ago in regards to the issue mentioned above. Have not received a single response. Rather disappointed with the conflict between this app and the other. As I would have preferred to use Swish for window management instead, and BTT for 99.9% of everything else.

Hi Marshall, sorry for the late reply here, I don't get notifications. I can't find any email from "Marshall", are you sure you sent it to the correct address (info at highlyopinionated dot co)? Regarding interference with other apps, you can always try disabling the "Active Event Listener" via Preferences → Advanced, then Swish passes on all touch events without modifying them. — Chris
This app has become so deeply and organically embedded into my Mac that I often find myself lost on other macbooks when I try to organise windows. It's really easy, and addictive to use.
