Simple window manager.

Overview

Breeze gives you simple window management on Mac OS X through a concept called "window states".

When you save a window state, Breeze remembers the relative size and position of the focused window.

At any point, you can apply that state (size and position) like a template to any other focused window.

Breeze comes with some handy default window states for Fullscreen and Splitscreen Left or Right.

What's new in Breeze

Version 1.6 (1.5.11):

Note: The downloadable demo is version 1.5.11; the version available for purchase on the Mac App Store is version 1.6.

Breeze: a fresh look at the windows in Mac OS X. Breeze is located in the menu bar and allows you to resize any active window using keyboard shortcuts. But unlike other utilities Breeze does not limit us presets or grid, and allows you to remember the window position and assign shortcut. You specify hotkey to any of the windows in the independence of the active program. Breeze works with any screen resolution and has positioned the window regardless of the display user. The program has a simple interface that allows you to easily add a new status window, assign a shortcut, and view the saved position of the icons in the menu bar. Function "Rescue Window" resets the state of any window and brings it to the center of the screen. Thanks to developers for an interesting product! Best Regards Vitaly!

Breeze is invaluable, but the update schedule (if it exists) is obscure. See comments below by artie505 . . . If you're looking for the latest version of Breeze, see the dev's directory, here: http://autumnapps.com/downloads/ As I write, the latest version # is 1.6, which installs & seems to run on OSX 10.10.5 just fine (haven't tried it on macOS).

How does this compare with Stay (https://cordlessdog.com/stay/)? Stay has been a huge help, but sometimes a bit quirky. It would be interesting to know if this really compares.

Interesting. Looks like Stay is more about recording/restoring a bunch of window positions/sizes like a workspace, even across multiple monitors. Breeze is just about putting one window at a time exactly where you want it (fullscreen, 50% left, 50% right, etc). You would probably need to try both to see what suits you better.

Although it says that v1.5.12 is the latest version as of 1-25-19, you get v1.5.11. I now have v1.5.13 via link from artie505 below. What is the Dev's problem?

Dunno why this version hasn't been disseminated.

Thanks for that artie505, works fine and is indeed 64bit, strange that the app gets updated here today to 1.5.12 on the mac crapstore, be nice if the dev bothered to contact us re 64bit version, he could do with some positive feedback, I will be happy to oblige, cheers Gary

My only guess is that the dev is waiting 'til the last minute to release the 64 bit version, which doesn't seem like the wisest idea, because people may look elsewhere if they can't get 64 bit here.

I think you’re right about that, sad part is I’ve tried two other apps from the Macappstore which both work ok but neither of them seem to let you save custom window sizes like breeze does, I emailed the support for Magnet which gets top reviews and that dev hasn’t replied either !, so that’s deleted and using breeze again now thanks to your link.

If you haven't noticed, the 64 bit version's creation date is August 2017.

It's actually been around for a year and a half!

Got me beat.

Yes I did see that when trying to check it’s 64bit, looks like he’s given up on it.
Also breeze is still showing as a legacy app in the system info ?

I don't use Spotlight, so nothing shows up in System Info > Apps and I've got no basis for comparison, so I"ve got no idea what a "legacy app" may be.

I hadn't realized that I"ve had the 64 bit version for so long. (It was created specifically at my request.)

Hi artie, are you using Mojave ? I didn’t see the legacy app item in system info before, I’m assuming it’s to warn you that any apps listed will not work in the next version of macOS, it probably checks the certificates. At least it works for now, whether the dev updates it any more we’ll have to wait and see. Cheers Gary

Hi, Diarbyrag,
Thanks for the heads-up, but I wonder how this new 64 bit version will differ from v 1.5.13 which already is 64 bit?
I guess we'll find out when it happens.

As long as it precedes macOS 10.15 (aka La Brea Tar Pits) it will be timely.

I'm surprised to see this much discussion about Breeze, which only makes about $20 a year after Apple fees. Indeed I've been squatting on a 64-bit update and a handful of changes for an embarrassingly long time (4 years).

Breeze is exactly what I'm looking for… BUT: It seems not to work with multiple displays which is a deal breaker for me. If this would work I'd buy it immediately – and give 5 stars.

Best thing since sliced bread. Since Yosemite when my MacPro E2008 feeding a Radeon HD7950 and Samsung HD 28" monitor wakes up from screensaver, windows revert to a generic shape. Breeze sorts that out in an instant Simple app. simple keypress and no more hassel. Live long and prosper.

This is precisely the application I needed to fix up the precise positioning of windows. As you all know, from time to time, windows decide to wander around the desktop(s) whether on the main computer or on the additional displays I use. I don't know about you but I spend far too much time moving windows where I need them to be. Simple and perfect application. Ready to act at the touch of a couple of keys. Well done Daniel and thank you for making my day today. Daniel.
