Divvy for Mac1.5.1

11 February 2017

Create custom workspaces, dividing your screen for efficiency.

What is Divvy for Mac

Divvy is an entirely new way of managing your workspace. It allows you to quickly and efficiently "divvy up" your screen into exact portions.

With Divvy, it is as simple as calling up the interface, clicking and dragging. When you let go, your window will be resized and moved to the relative position on the screen. If that seems like too much work, you can go ahead and create as many different shortcuts as you'd like that resize and move your windows in exactly the same way.

Divvy is designed to be quick, simple and elegant. We want it to stay out of your way as much as possible while providing the most powerful window management available today.

What's new in Divvy

Version 1.5.1:
Fixes:
  • For Divvy crash when waking from sleep on the late 2016 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar
  • For macOS 10.12 warning that '"Divvy" can't be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed'

While window management on a Mac desktop has become an increasingly crowded field, Divvy’s visual, intuitive layout keeps it in the upper echelon of these utilities. As soon as the layout grid is called up, a click and drag of the mouse draws out the uniform portion of your screen that the app will be taking up. A live preview of the space taken up, in the form of a giant translucent blue rectangle, makes organization a breeze. Change the granularity of your grid to create even more precise layouts. Unlike many other layout tools, Divvy offers a perfect balance between immediate simplicity and precise specificity, particularly for users with high-resolution displays. The only downside is the limited use Divvy makes of keyboard shortcuts; with some additional honing in on the speed with which users can reorganize on-the-fly, Divvy could stand peerlessly atop this field. But until then, it’s still beyond capable and will quickly become a staple app on any user’s Mac.

Hi I used the free version for a while before updating. It's the simplest tool that I've found to divide up the applications on my screen. I set a hotkey and use it to launch the program. I have two large monitors and sometimes things can get lost or confusing. Divvy's perfect for getting all my open programs under control so thanks!

Very clean app, I own it on both Windows and Mac and it works flawlessly on both. It's easy to tell that the dev put a lot of effort into this app, there's no feature missing. You can even customize the snapping grid! Add to that fantastic, responsive customer service and you've got an unbeatable product.

Great app! But I'm not at all fond of the new icon in version 1.4. Too complicated and less concise than the old one. A step backwards.

I've been using Divvy for years now and it has become so integrated into my workflow that I don't know what I would do if I suddenly didn't have it anymore. It works seamlessly for me using a dual display setup. I have 5 main layouts assigned to 5 different hot keys that I routinely use, but I love how I can also easily customize my windows on-the-fly when I need to. (Tip: You can hold down the option key to get an even finer grid for defining your layout.) The developers are quite responsive too. I once had a problem with changing the my windows in MS Office applications, but this was quickly fixed in the next update. Awesome!

I purchased this a few minutes ago and wow is it simple. With dual monitors and 14 applications going I was moving stuff around like a pro. Not that I need to do this habitually, quite the opposite. It was just fun doing it. Slick. Hats off to MacUpdate too. The ability to have MacUpdate Desktop automatically download and install the program is sweet and a second click (or two) puts the serial and associated details in my 1Password. (I gave it five stars for everything because it wouldn't let me out without rating everything. I'll come back and re-rate if it doesn't measure up.)

Yes, it is over-priced - but that might just be me getting old! *laughs* Think of it as paying for something that is highly functional and purposely made without bells and whistles: It does what it does and simply and well - and without having to attend a seminar to work it. PLUS I have an extra monitor hooked into my mac: each time the power saver kicked in all the windows ended up on the Mac screen: with Divvy the windows stay where they are put, and for that alone it was worth the cost.

So much of the OS X interface is designed for small MacBook screens now. I have this incredible 27" screen on my iMac, and I just don't need to run most apps in fullscreen mode. I use Divvy on a regular basis, with the keyboard shortcuts, to tile windows all over the screen and keep apps open side-by-side. Great stuff.

Nice add-on, I use the global shortcuts with some settings a lot! Also just learned about the subdivision the grid with 'alt'. Still needs some fixes for Lion though. Especially when setting a window to fill the screen when the dock is present (at the right). The window gets too big and jumps to the left.

Divvy is a very useful tool. I often have to navigate between many windows. Very easy to get them properly aligned. However, $14 is too much for that kind of features. And the screen division is not always suitable. I use it all the time, but it lacks some flexibility and should be cheaper.

Mac doesn't offer a way to tile apps on the screen until Window does. Divvy basically fill in that gap and even better assignable hot key. With a few keystroke, I can Full screen, 1/2 screen, center, etc... Simple to use and easy to setup.

Got this as part of the spring bundle. An absolutely excellent time saving app that saves you the frustration of moving windows around. Just set a few global shortcuts like alt+1 for full screen, alt+2 for left half, and you won't even have to launch the Divvy menu to rearrange your workspace. I can no longer live without this app.

From reading the comments, this seemed to be exactly the kind of utility I'd enjoy using. I've often struggled arranging the windows so that I could see a website while typing a Pages document; or so that I could read the instructions in an email while working in InDesign. It seemed to work fine for a few hours then, after increasing the number of rows and columns, it just stopped working completely. Clicking on the menu item would highlight it, but that was it. Unfortunately I had to delete it.

Divvy is a must have for all Max OSX users. Its easy to use interface with a minimalistic presence. The application is light, and will not take up substantial space. More so, the features that it offers should be a necessity for all Mac users. Divvy finally allows us to quit tugging on the dreaded bottom right corner of the window. Rather, it allows you to use a grid system to select the area of the screen the selected application will use. Not only that, but the management of the company is extremely friendly and quick to aid in any questions or suggestions you might have. Buy this app! You will not be disappointed.

Divvy is a simple idea, and an immensely huge time saver, especially for people who like precision in window placement. It is hard to summarize how useful it has been, so I recommend trying it out; you will absolutely love it. It is unobtrusive and well implemented, and the developer is quick to respond!

This is a pretty nice app to have around, but the default grid is not what I want. An option/preference to create as many grids (rows/columns) would make this app ideal. right now I'm finding that I resize my apps only to have to make them just a little smaller or bigger. If I was able to make the divvy grid have more rows/columns I could then have the precision I want.

Currently, I am using Version 1.2.1 (398). Some people suggested global shortcuts. The new version of Divvy includes global shortcuts, although I like to activate Divvy in the first place and then use my customized shortcuts instead of using global shortcuts at once, I believe this option is still very useful and handy! I have not noticed any problems with arranging or resizing any application, including iTunes. I even tried to change the image of a VirtualPrivateNetwork connection (some kind of a remote connection to a given server, similar to Cloud Computing or Parallel's Desktop but not on your own machine) which at least changed to position on my screen but not the size as I intended to. I assume that is not Divvy's problem more a security standard implemented within the VPN. A must have for MAC OS X. I use it daily. However, I have not tried out this application with a second screen! My iMac (27") is big enough for daily work but not for programming which I do daily, too. When I get another 27" screen I will review my review again.

Didn't take me long to purchase this after trying it out for an evening. I'm not a fan of window managers in general (although, strangely enough, I seem to own a lot of them), but this one "just works" and stays out of the way until you need it. The video on the developer's page explains all you need to know to start working with it immediately. Nice job!

Divvy - quick, simple and elegant utility. Being the most powerful window manager, Divvy stays away as much as you want at any time and come to your aid. Divvy - a small application to the menu bar, which allows you to resize any active window. When activated Divvy appears small transparent window with a grid, which virtually splits the screen 6 at 6 cells. To move or resize any window by selecting the cells in this field. It is very simple. Divvy allows you to create an unlimited number of shortcuts to various provisions of the windows. For example, you can create a shortcut to the left half of the screen and the hotkey on the platform 4 x 4 squares in the center. Effects of shortcuts is not limited to one application and they work for any active window. In addition, you can set a global hotkey to call the main window. By default, HUD-pane disappears when you select the cells, but in the settings can be enabled manually hide the program. And in conclusion I say that I was satisfied with the program Divvy. Best Regards Vitaly!
