When I begun to use a Mac, some months ago, I tested several window managers. SizeUp was my choice: it is a simple, well designed and stable app that do what promises. SizeUp does not bloat the system and you can even hide its menu bar icon.

This app lets you define how the screen would be divided. For me, a nice setup is to use 100-0% of vertical space and 75-25% of horizontal. With this, I can use shortcuts to distribute bigger windows to left (as Safari or Together) and small ones to right (as Dictionary or Text Edit). When an application must use all screen room (as Photoshop or InDesign), there is also a shortcut to this.

The only improvement I can see is to have two options regarding the center window command: one to just center the window, without any resizing, and other to resize it to a given measure. Today, SizeUp offers this two possibilities, but you chose one or other. To have both would be a good addition.

Now we're just waiting for an update so that one may resize and move (later versions of) certain iLife/iWork apps around...

I'm in a desing/development shop and with my 27" imac there's lots of screen space so I en up with many many windows open. SizeUp makes it a little more sane to look at!

As a student, this software is amazing. Snapping a powerpoint presentation to one side of the screen and notes (or facebook :) to the other is priceless. Very stable and easy to use, seems like it should've been included with OSX in the first place.

Great software giving OS X the functionality from Windows 7. A must have for anyone using a big screen and wanting to view two documents side by side!

Very nice app but i have one regret (or is it there somewhere and i couldn't find it?): the absence of automatic, global "tile" function for each app -- you have to resize each window individually to finally get a tiled screen.

The numerous options / default choices already present in this app would allow this function to be implemented quite easily by the developer, i think.

(If anyone reading this knows of piece of freeware or shareware that offers an automatic tiling of the open windows of one application (whether Finder or other apps), I would love to know. None of the apps i tested allow this.)

This program works extremely well and does exactly what it advertises.

It also works perfectly with a dual monitor setup which is essential for me.

I use it constantly and is one of my most favorite utilities. If you do any kind of work where you need several windows open and viewable at the same time, especially with multiple monitor setups, this is something you need. I quickly learned the keyboard shortcuts I use 90% of the time. For the other seldom used functions it provides, they are only a click away in the menu bar. The detail of preferences, such as setting desired boarder space is genius.

It is one of those programs you needed but did never knew it. That is why I am writing this review. Everyone using several windows/monitors should to try it. On a Mac, it makes the Windows OS's stupid implementation of "windows within windows" just plain juvenile.
