Fiwi overview

Fiwi is a compact, faceless application to help with moving files and folders via 2 symmetrical Finder windows. It really helps saving time and avoid confusion.

Retina Screens users: We have had reports that Fiwi is not able to manage Finder windows as expected when run on a retina screen. As a temporary fix please use the Fiwi set up app provided. In the Finder please set up the two windows exactly as you wish them to appear, run Fiwi set up and choose Windows Settings. In the ensuing dialog box choose Set Customised Windows. Fiwi will maintain those settings correctly. To change size or orientation please use Fiwi set up again.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

I love Fiwi for Mac. I have version 2.0.9 and use it every day to make dual windows to be able to easily drag and drop files. I hope a version for Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) version will be coming.

Fiwi is simple. Fiwi just makes another finder window next to or above the one that you're looking at. Now it's easy to move things from where you put them to where they need to go. OR you could create different screen and set each one up and then move things between screens (maybe). Just use Fiwi. It's simple. It works.

Used to love Fiwi on Tiger but I have found it to be incompatible with TotalFinder for Snow Leopard. If you don't use TotalFInder, Fiwi is useful (if a little slow).

Tried launching it and it started spawning infinite tabs. I'm using TotalFinder so my guess is its not compatible.

I was looking at various window management apps and ran across FiWi. Unfortunately the above links to either the download or the dev site result in 404 errors.

WordPower does appreciate constructive reviews of Fiwi. These help us to improve the product and serve our users better. The cstephen87 review below does not give any indication why he believes Fiwi merits such a low rating. Perhaps he just prefers another product...

OS Lion will SURELY offer this foundational function... This app is a waste of money, however. Instead, why not get a WHOLE NEW FINDER WITH BETTER FUNCTIONALITY?! TotalFinder. Look it up. Bye

Can do this with forklift or any dual pane file manager cleaner in one window. Just put it on a space no need to resize or mess about and work from that. Still for this price you won't get those kind of applications so for that it is very useful for those who don't need all the extras which come with those dual pain file managers.

I cannot believe how much time I've wasted over the years messing about resizing Finder windows. Fiwi is an absolute godsend, one of the most useful productivity apps I've come across in a long time.

Great piece of niche software. Does one thing well. But.... This version 2.0.6 keeps asking me for a password and my version 1.9+ password which has worked to the latest release does not unlock the application. Emailed the author and await an explanation. Paid for another password anywho. Work a buck 99 as far as I'm concerned.

Pardon my ignorance but after reading these glowing comments, visiting the website and even watching the video I still can't figure out what practical use Fiwi is. Why do you need it? What does it do?? What's the need for two Finder windows in the first place? Thank you.

Thank you Doobiexx for bringing Sizeup to our attention. It is always interesting to compare applications. Our intention with Fiwi is to create an application that uses no real nor virtual memory when not actually setting up the windows and does not take any space in the menubar, that automatically creates two windows, positions them and, in doing so, requires minimal user input and where the windows are customisable to any size and on any monitor, even one on one display and the other on another.

lame making us pay for an upgrade. Go to www.irradiatedsoftware.com and grab sizeup... does what fiwi 2.0 can + plenty more and it's truly donationware. This is shareware. With sizeup you determine the price, what it's worth, not what the dev thinks the app is worth. Shame, instead of attracting new customers fiwi is just driving them to the competition. I get SIZEUP makes of TWOUP

I can't say I actually need this update, since the current one works so well. However -what else can you buy for less than a buck? With high quality and easy access to the developer? Highly recommended, under all circumstances. It would be interesting if he could make it work with Safari and/or Firefox...maybe next time. I'd pay $1.98 for that upgrade!
