Zooom is a Mac desktop utility that redefines how you can resize, move and align your application windows - making you faster and more productive.

To use Zooom, the general rule is that you hold down a set of modifier keys (which you can of course change if you wish) and then click somewhere within a window to initiate a drag or resize action.

Mavericks problem: This seems to have made mouse clicks stop working in a lot of places. SystemUIServer still gets them if you click the menu bar but Zooom2 stops responding to them! I am hoping it might be a conflict with something else I have installed. Anyone else got it running in 10.9?

Zooom/2 is back, now compatible up to Mountain Lion, 10.8.4.
Version 2.5.0 (4009) works beautifully in moving, re-sizing windows with a 'Modifier key' and click window zooming.
For X11 users, CodeRage says, holding cursor on a window for two milliseconds enlarges the window; there is an Enable check box.
Lots of fun with Zooom/2 v2.5.0 now for the user who likes keyboard control and only two choices; Shift-Option and Shift-Comd for resize and move window. Caution: see check bow in Preferences if you want Move Window to fly away to top left, I do not.
Off now to play with Magnetics.
(Windownaut is not working well on OS X 10.8.4.)
Zooom/2 is back to full production, thank you CodeRage.

Four corner resizing is broken under Lion. I just upgraded to Lion and am disappointed to discover this. Give that Lion has been out for nearly a year and this problem is not fixed indicates that this product is a candidate for abandonware. Please tell me I'm wrong.

In general I like Zoom a lot, but although the current version is allegedly Lion-friendly, in my experience it has proved to be highly toxic. At first screen-moving worked fine after I upgraded to Lion. From the first moment resizing didn't, and all of a sudden the Finder's window-management capacity went south big time. Using Activity Monitor to force quit Zooom immediately ended the problem and the Finder started behaving correctly. I'm not going to use Zooom any more until if and when the developers put out a stable and reliable version.

Strange, I haven't had any issues at all with Zooom on Lion. It's possible that there's a particular app conflicting with it. For instance, Witch and Zooom have a conflict, and it's necessary to add Witch's background process to the Zooom exclude list to avoid weird behaviour (the actual application that runs in the background is located inside the .prefpane bundle if you have the non-App Store version of Witch). Maybe try excluding any other window management or switching apps you have? Just a thought--it might amount to nothing, but it's probably worth a try.

Works fine, but not for all apps. Overpriced 19,95 $ ! Works unregistered for 30 minutes and not for 1 or 2 hours as mentioned.
Flexiglass does the same and even more for 9,99 $ (5,99 € MAS) and is great as well. I am very, very happy with Flexiglass !
Thank you both developers for the good idea !
Thank you "Flexiglass" for your reasonable "Macprice".

The problem for me is that Flexiglass does not also have the auto-raise feature, as does Zooom. (Unless I'm not seeing it.) That's not an easy feature to find anymore.

I've been using this for 8 months now, and it has become an integral part of my everyday user interface workflow. I wonder why Apple hasn't added this functionality when they've already added all sorts of gesture controls for interface control and mouse scroll ball/wheel has been around for ages. It just makes sense to have Zooom 2 installed to fill the void.

It just makes handling open windows MUCH smoother especially when using a trackpad, because mouse can be anywhere inside an open window. I don't have to move my mouse around and try to grab a small corner or titlebar.

Zooom 2 doesn't work with a few apps, but there aren't that many of them, I can add them on Zooom's Exclude list, and it still works well with the vast majority of the apps I work with on daily basis. Zooom makes user interface control go many times faster. Strongly recommended.

Been using for about a year, awesome app, but lately Zooom has been dorking out the column view in iTunes. I cannot scroll the first column, but behavior reverts to normal upon quitting Zooom. There's even a thread about it at the Apple Forums.

I hope the developer squashes this bug soon, because I hate to go without Zooom, but I need to use iTunes as well.

Zooom did crash latest iTunes 9.1 (Build 97) even when it is stopped via Pref-Pane (Activate Button is switched-off). To include iTunes in the IgnoreList of the Pref-Pane does not work either. Killing the process (Zooom does not have a shutdown button) before starting iTunes is the only workaround.

Zooom2 is a wonderful app - it does its job very well. However, it doesn't work properly under Snow Leopard with a Wacom Tablet in Pen Mode. With a tablet, moving a window also resizes it, even when the resize keys aren't pressed. Take the tablet out of Pen Mode and it works fine...

It works much more smoothly and more consistently under 10.6.2 as of now. I hope MondoMouse will be updated to work better but I'm taking this one since it's working right now and working very well. This utility (MondoMouse as well, for that matter, if it works again) saves a lot of time. It makes workflow much smoother. Somewhat addictive at first. :) The price could be just a little lower for this one-trick pony, but programming takes a lot of time and effort. I think it's worth the price in a long run. Strongly recommended.
