The flexibility this provides is excellent compared to some of the other competitors.

Others I tried: Arranger, BetterSnapTool (actually didn't try it, cause it wouldn't let me; trial expired immediately), Cinch, and Spectacle.

I also intentionally did not try others that I looked at based on their descriptions (missing features).

This wins.

Why?

- Mouse control resizing via dragging. Works. Supports up to two modes (4 size types, or 8 size types).

- Keyboard control. Shortcuts.

- Mouse drawing on a grid.

It does everything the others do, it does things they don't do, and it does it better. And it does it for $8.99. Perfectly reasonable price. Next step is to buy a license for myself.

Therefore, it won my heart (and mind). :-)

No longer works in OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The Accessibility API apparently has been changed.

Correction: after some more research, looks like the option to enable Assistive Devices has been moved. It is now under System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility and is enabled per application. Once switched on for Arrange, everything seems to work!

Thanks, this worked! It was fine with Mavericks until I moved it to a different folder the other day. Opened privacy>accessibility setting and it was clicked off after moving Arrange to a folder . *Note, Arrange doesn't play nicely when put in a folder in Applications folder (most apps are ok) - only hot keys work...

If dev is reading - Can you add this info to the documentation page on the product site, and maybe in the description on MacUpdate page above, at least until Arrange is programed to open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility instead of what it opens now.

Definitely superior, and I always test ALL similar apps ;-)

I guess this is a paid upgrade.. I updated automatically and my SN is not recognized.. Thanks to Time Machine I reverted to 2.1. I use this a lot.. but it's not like this new version adds anything I want to pay for again plus it's totally unclear to me if there even is an upgrade policy or if one is expected to pay full price again?

Ok, clearer now.. Other topic: old clean black icon was a zillion times better and more pro-looking, this little kiddie window looks very childish to me ;0) Now if I were a new customer I'd feel Flexiglass to be more pro.. Icons go a long way in perception.. I think..

I must be missing something:

Tried Arrange briefly and expected my windows to stay where I put them and stay on TOP. Mainly wanted it for keeping Quicktime Player on top so I could watch video while doing other things, but it doesn't stay there. With VLC I can float the window on top, but not QTP.

What's the point of arranging a window to a certain position if it's going to disappear when I switch apps? When I return to a window to work, I want it fullscreen, not 1/8 screen or some other miniscule size. If QTP or maybe Thunderbird would stay on top in a corner while I was working, fine, but since I must return to each one to see them, why would I want them minimized? I don't want to read my email or work with Pages or any other app in a tiny window, that's why I bought a 17" MacBook Pro - so I'd have more real estate.

Thank you for your review. Arrange is intended to align windows not to keep them in certain places or on top of others. For example if someone wants to keep two windows side by side to work with two documents Arrange is the tool he/she can use. But in your case you have to find other solution.

If you want to remember their positions, have a look at Stay, and if you want them to float on top then check out Afloat but it needs a special build for Mavericks

I have tested a few windows manager and for me this one is the best. I
especially like multi monitor support since I have two monitor setup.
Price is really nice, you buy one application and get four different
ways to operate windows.

I have to use both Mac and Windows PC and despite I prefer OSX to
Windows 7 in almost every aspect I always missed snap resize feature.
But now my pain is over thanks to Arrange application. It gives me all
I need and even more so situation has flipped and I miss Arrange
features on my PC machine. It is must have for everyone who ever
experienced snap resize.

I like Arrange, but I refuse to reward its jackass developer by buying it. He’s so thin-skinned that he takes compliments as insults. Worse, he attacks anyone who says anything even remotely negative about his app. If he ever learns how to be human in the business and online contexts, I’ll reconsider. But until then, I’m buying Cinch.

Can you be so kind and show me where I answered to anybody the way you have described. You realize that I'm not a native English speaker and maybe not all nuances of language are noticable for me. Regards
