17 December 2014

Move, resize, zoom your application windows effortlessly.

Overview

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.

What's new in Zooom

Version 2.6.5:
  • Fixes a problem in the auto-raise feature where minimised windows would get raised in certain situations

This app is a mess in SL. Nothing works right, use a function key and it locks everything up. Next release that won't happen but press the function key and every window will resize as you move the mouse wherever on the screen. I like this app, it once was the best of it's market, it is still the most feature laden and flexible, but has become useless with late releases. Hope we find a fix for this soon. Thanks for the work anyhow. Would love to use it for many more years as I previously did.

Here goes another "system enhancement utility" gone abandonware. I've paid for a lot of Mac utility software like this only to end up seeing them become an abandonware, and, while I appreciate all the work CodeRage folks have done in the past, I have to say it is one of them. It is one of the reasons I have decided to never pay for and install “system enhancement utilities" like this on my Mac. Here is how it always turns out; You buy a piece of software like this thinking your workflow would miraculously improve and you would save a lot of frustrations and time. Then, you start spending more time tinkering and troubleshooting as you use this type of utilities more. Soon, you become a volunteer beta tester for these developers while becoming more and more dependent upon a novel way of doing things on your Mac. After a while, you stop seeing updates and bug fixes and then painfully realize that the developers of the utilities you paid for and came to be heavily dependent on abandoned them. You will have to spend a lot of time relearning as you endure a lot of frustration as a result of your workflow ripped apart only because some developers no longer felt like developing their tools. I'm sick and tired of this classic pattern with indie developers. I found that, in the long run, these “system enhancements” added more complexity, frustration and “needs” to tinker with, and that I was much better off just making good use of all the default features on my Mac. Any small gains in UI efficiency are not worth the massive trade-off of depending on this type of utilities. All the best wishes for john-clayton-1. And Thank you for confirming my conviction about never contribute to this type of tools in the future.

Author of Zooom/2 here. Just a note to let you all know CodeRage & Zooom/2 are shutting down as of now. The website contains a short explanation. Thanks for your support over the years - wish you all the best for the future.

That's a shame. It clearly didn't sell enough copies to make it worthwhile or hold your interest.
I'm wondering why you wouldn't release it as Open Source and see if the community could take over and make it compatible with Sierra and beyond. I know its your code and your choice.

My two cents about authors who shut down (quite similar to the above comment): why don't you give the last version as freeware, instead? Especially, if the website remains active!
That was the case of the old iNotePad: there was a SN displayed as long as vojousoftware.com existed.

I have to leave a bad review because this thing still aint working. I am on 10.11.6 now and there are all kinds of bugs. • the move-without-clicking feature invokes without the modifier key down • it gets stuck on • the Zooom app loses focus • Running the Zooom app to try to quit it properly (with the UI) invokes OSX full screen mode At least the auto -raise feature still works!

New version didn't fix things on my system. See TachyOn's comment on Oct 26, 2013. Zooom2 essentially locks up my system. I can't even set preferences in Zooom2. Useless!

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. Adrien (UK)

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". F Rol (France)

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.
