Abandonware, no updates since 3.0 in 2013. Doesn't work with all windows, or consistently with any apps. Annoying licensing screw ups, constantly needs to be reauthorised. Forget it.

Works on Yosemite. YAY!!! This is truly the best of the bunch! BTW, I had to quit the app, go to System Preferences -> Privacy ->Accessibility -> and click Arrange on and off. Did not have to do anything else. Sooooo grateful that it still works because that would have just made me so sad!

The flexibility this provides is excellent compared to some of the other competitors.

Others I tried: Arranger, BetterSnapTool (actually didn't try it, cause it wouldn't let me; trial expired immediately), Cinch, and Spectacle. I also intentionally did not try others that I looked at based on their descriptions (missing features). This wins. Why? - Mouse control resizing via dragging. Works. Supports up to two modes (4 size types, or 8 size types). - Keyboard control. Shortcuts. - Mouse drawing on a grid. It does everything the others do, it does things they don't do, and it does it better. And it does it for $8.99. Perfectly reasonable price. Next step is to buy a license for myself. Therefore, it won my heart (and mind). :-)

No longer works in OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The Accessibility API apparently has been changed.

I guess this is a paid upgrade.. I updated automatically and my SN is not recognized.. Thanks to Time Machine I reverted to 2.1. I use this a lot.. but it's not like this new version adds anything I want to pay for again plus it's totally unclear to me if there even is an upgrade policy or if one is expected to pay full price again?

I must be missing something: Tried Arrange briefly and expected my windows to stay where I put them and stay on TOP. Mainly wanted it for keeping Quicktime Player on top so I could watch video while doing other things, but it doesn't stay there. With VLC I can float the window on top, but not QTP. What's the point of arranging a window to a certain position if it's going to disappear when I switch apps? When I return to a window to work, I want it fullscreen, not 1/8 screen or some other miniscule size. If QTP or maybe Thunderbird would stay on top in a corner while I was working, fine, but since I must return to each one to see them, why would I want them minimized? I don't want to read my email or work with Pages or any other app in a tiny window, that's why I bought a 17" MacBook Pro - so I'd have more real estate.

I have tested a few windows manager and for me this one is the best. I especially like multi monitor support since I have two monitor setup. Price is really nice, you buy one application and get four different ways to operate windows.

I have to use both Mac and Windows PC and despite I prefer OSX to Windows 7 in almost every aspect I always missed snap resize feature. But now my pain is over thanks to Arrange application. It gives me all I need and even more so situation has flipped and I miss Arrange features on my PC machine. It is must have for everyone who ever experienced snap resize.

I like Arrange, but I refuse to reward its jackass developer by buying it. He’s so thin-skinned that he takes compliments as insults. Worse, he attacks anyone who says anything even remotely negative about his app. If he ever learns how to be human in the business and online contexts, I’ll reconsider. But until then, I’m buying Cinch.

I checked out Arrange, Cinch, Sizeup, Divvy, and Optimal Layout, and I like Arrange best of all. It looks like Arrange can do everything that Cinch, Sizeup, and Divvy can, except for the nice arbitrarily-configurable shortcuts in Divvy. Arrange certainly has a good number of shortcuts for several predefined actions, but it may be nice to also be able to assign shortcuts to custom freeform window arrangements in Arrange.

one last gripe, don't like that I don't have the option to remove the menubar arrows up there and have another way of accessing preferences, etc. I've got enough stuff in my menubar already without adding more to it with something that should be a simply windows manager.

I found the preferences, it was hard to spot. Hoped the free form tool would allow for exact positioning of some windows, but it instead only allows for using a grid of varying resolution.

On another note Arrange conflicts with my Exposé hot corners as well if I want to move a window to show all it's corresponding windows in Exposé via a hot corner. Like to be able to turn that off or something. I tried right-clicking on the arrows the Dev puts in the menu bar, but nada. Not very user friendly. I hope this gets improved and I'll come back to try this again.

Really like how you can customize the windows and "arrange" them. But, I switched back to Cinch because this was forgetting to put my Safari windows back to the size they were before I "arranged" them. Until that's fixed, this app isn't any use to me.
