Just updated to spectacle 0.8.5 on os X 10.9.3. Works great!

Just wish that it worked with all apps/windows (Outlook and others only with a few sizes or none at all), and that there was the ability to snap windows by dragging a window title bars to sides of screen.

Spectacle is an awesome app that I could not possibly do without and has saved me innumerable hours in being able to quickly organize and resize all the various windows I have open on my Late 2013 27" iMac.

I really like this app; can't hardly do without. But why in the world does it need to call home at ramdom? There's no box to tick off in the prefs to prevent it.

Unfortunately buggy. Won't, for instance, operate on pdfs open in recent Adobe Reader versions. It has one function not present in SizeUp, which is bug free: the ability to re-size windows from the keyboard, so I keep it around for just that.

Awesome app, only features that I miss are: 1/3 2/3 split and restore defaults. Awesome app and not just free it's open source as well.

Another nice to have feature would be, that I can click on the menu bar item and see all possible shortcuts + click there and execute the action like "size up" does it.

Best app of this type that I reviewed. There are about 10 of them. Handles all of my needs with simplicity. Latest release now can split screens up into thirds. Awesome!
