Noticed that too, unfortunately.
I hope for a quick fix from the dev, for MM is one of my essential keyboard companions along with Spark 3.0b9.

Yes, I can confirm that MecuryMover 2.1.1 does not work in macOS Sierra. I've been using MecuryMover since 2008 but it's finally time to remove it from my computer. I've just purchased an alternative app called BetterSnapTool (https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/37265/bettersnaptool) for $2 on the App Store. This does everything that MecuryMover does and far more. I wish that I had changed to BetterSnapTool earlier.

Having doubts the developer will update. Can't even find any information or updates on their website.

With all due respect, I have to agree with many others in this thread - I feel the developer is asking too much for this software. I'd possibly be tempted at the $10 mark (but that's just me)...

Why do you own an Apple brand computer then? Same logic applies there, does it not?

I don't know about the rest of the users here but for me and other folks who spend hours if not days in front of the computer like web designers or programmers, MercuryMover is a godsend. MM fills the need of 'old school' folks like me who are flirting with RSI, and don't need our hands on trackpads and mice, who want to keep our hands on the keyboard. Anyone who uses vi or emacs and wants their tools like that knows what I'm talking about. Example. I have a MM shortcut [made via cmd-d] '9'.. what this does is put any window from any app to my page 2 monitor and max it to 1024 x 1280. In English: when I want to read anything in Preview, WebKit, Camino or Mail on the other monitor fullscreen, I can either go thru the laborous RSI laden mouse moving, or I can invoke 2 keyboard shortcuts and done with ANY app, not just the ones that have a fullscreen zoom. I think it's well worth the money I spent. I definitely miss it when I move to a guest mac or one where it's not installed.

It could be nice time saver for everyday use but definitely not for 24$. I think it belongs to same category as MsgFiler (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23320/msgfiler): small tools that are pretty limited in function, designed for keyboard loving power-users. Cost of MsgFiler? 8$ - amount I am happy to pay for such tool. MercuryMover costs 3 times more. It would be nice if developer could do a research, compare his product with others and reconsider pricing level.

Look's nice and is easy to use. I will try it and consider after the demo period if it is worth 20 bucks (at the moment it seems a little bit too much....).

I just had a quick look at Zoom. Looks nice and interesting. However, as far as I could see it doesn't allows you to resize or move windows be only using the keyboard. Am I wrong?

It uses keyboard keys + mouse to resize or move. Send me a email at: p_o_box_82448@yahoo.ca and I'll send you something.
