BetterSnapTool allows you to easily manage your window positions and sizes by either dragging them to one of your screens corners or to the top, left or right side of your screen. This lets you easily maximize your windows or position them side by side. In addition, you can set keyboard shortcuts in order to move and resize your windows the way you want.

BetterSnapTool is very customizable and will change the way you work with your Mac!

It supports multiple monitors, hidden dock, and more. You can change the design of the preview window and even set application specific snapping sizes!

I'm always open for more...

There are several good apps like this out there & this is possibly the best, or one of the best available to date. I tried it though I own others that do very close to this.

For a decent price, you are getting features for which other similar apps charge extra.

Out of the box, there are several useful default choices, but you can customize your own.

You can indicate configurable drop zones, small hotspots on your desktop into which you drag open windows & BetterSnap places them exactly where you want them & what size. You can set those drop zones up for only certain apps, so that they aren’t getting in your way when another application is active.

Other apps have done this, Cinch for example, & may have been the basis of a similar feature MS put into into Windows 7.

BetterSnap is worth a try & its worth a buck or two to the developer for a job well done, even if you conclude its not for you at the end of it all.

The drop zones work & are reasonably unobtrusive, still there’s a tiny bit more work to do there.

I’m not sure about its stability yet, as I’ve seen a few odd minor glitches after installing this, but can’t say that its tied to BetterSnap.

Not sure a BestSnapTool could be any better! One of my favorite utilities and fairly priced too. Set up takes some time, and haven't tried it with multiple monitors yet. Works great on my main screen though!

At first you will use BetterSnap Tool once in a while. After a few weeks you will find it quite useful and after a longer period, not having it is just not an option. The new customizable snap areas give you the ability to create specific size and position for your windows. A truly smart addition to an already great software.

Tried it, bought it straightaway

Simple to use, more advanced features (requiring shortcuts etc) are available but NOT required for basic use.

I've tried some of the alternatives, but was overwhelmed by 'customization' features etc that I didn't need all the time.

Price is right, especially when bought on the App Store, as that gives 5 licenses for the price of one :)

I've tried just about every window snapping app, in my opinion this is the best of the bunch. Very tweakable: it has a preference to increase the "snapping recognition areas" which is perfect for multiple monitor setups. It seems like the developer has thought of just about everything.

Simple operation, great customization options. Works like a charm and worth every penny (and cheaper than the cup of coffee I bought while checking it out).

Dear everyone: you're supposed to be rating the app. If you don't like the App Store's lack of a demo feature, complain to Apple.

p.s. The developer does provide a demo (see top of screen): http://blog.boastr.net/

It's a cheap buy from the App Store, and it won't disappoint! An amazing Window Management tool. It's a shame that people are rating it down because it has no trial version.

To the developer: Make a trial version with time limit, and make it available on your website, you have nothing to lose if you do that!

Two reasons why I will not purchase this application.

1. No demo to test and see if it works ok.

2. I do not like and will not purchase from the app store.

I only give it a star rating because I can't submit without it.

You can submit without stars. When you click "Write a Review," there's a pop-up menu at the top from which you can choose "Comment." That lets you comment without also rating.
