Divvy

Version 1.5.1

Create custom workspaces, dividing your screen for efficiency.

Divvy overview

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.

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.

A small but very practical and convenient utility. I don’t use it that much but when doing artwork, it comes in handy every time.

Up to now, everything works as expected. Microsoft Office products like Word are quite slow to follow the Divvy commands.

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.

I'm one of those people who has to have his drink coaster aligned parallel to the table. I also like to have my windows arranged just as well. Divvy is the perfect bar coaster re-arranger for OSX.

Works like a charm and I really miss it when on a mac without... only the Adobe Family won't take Divvy's orders :(
