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.

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.

Moom costs less and does more.

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.

Great support. After contacting the developer with the issue, he came back with questions etc very quickly. Bugfix is underway :)

I'm using the tryout and I would buy this if there was an option to set a shortcut that no matter what application is running, it will immediately resize and locate the windows to the given setting. (Without the need of activating the application first).

We are currently discussing the addition of global shortcuts to Divvy in the near future.

Global shortcuts might be a nice option, but please do keep Divvy-only shortcuts as well.
