I love Stay! Running from meeting to my desk and to another meeting has me plugging in my external display and bam, all my windows go back to the way they are supposed to be thanks to Stay! I've only got 1 beef: I have 2 windows open for Chrome, one on each monitor. It would be great if when I connected the external monitor to my mbp, Stay would remember which window was on the external. As it happens now, I have to move the 1 chrome window I like to keep on the external back, but honestly, moving 1 window back into position is nothing compared to what I had to do before I had Stay.
Great APP!

Appears to do everything I could want, except the things that drive me to want to purchase it...
i.e. 1.) no ability to move space on application launch (to fix those apps, like Parallels, that no longer respect the 'This Desktop' setting) and 2.) no working with X11 windows or Steam what so ever.

Stay and Moom besides are my choices to organize all my Finder and specific Application windows. Stay I think is the only Utility that stores and restores the individual defined position of different Application windows (for example the Main window and Equalizer window in iTunes) in just one step via Menu or Hotkey. I love it, because my wife and my son very often disarrange different Application windows. A killer feature is Stays option to restore windows as Applications are launched. Thanks to the Developer for this jewel.

I bought it . It is great . I have a program THNKORSWIM with multiple windows set up . It does not always repopulate on the monitors in the same configuration that it is shut down in . Could not solve the problem ... well STAY did ... works great .
Thanks .

After some experimenting on both and tweeking on the THINKORSWIM program . I have gotten it to work . STAY does what it says it will . The developer contacted me a couple of times trying to help me with the problem so he is attentive . It save me a lot of time and aggravation . Good purchase .

I bought this software more than two months go and can't find a suitable adjective to describe its usefulness. I often keep many windows open on my Mac and move them around continuosly. Before knowing "Stay" I had to spend a lot of time reorganizing all these windows and restore them to their original position. Now I have a Genie at my disposal that does this tiring function with one click. How quick and painless a once tedious job has become thanks to this tiny yet great utility! If you don't like mousing around like me then look no further. Fariborz Amirshahi - Verona (Italy)

Having different numbers of displays connected to my MacBook Pro throughout the day, Stay makes keeping the many open windows manageable.

For someone that likes their windows to be where they want them to be, Stay will help you keep your sanity. :-)

Thanks for the 1.1 update and making Stay work with Spaces!

Even better now.

Fariborz had trouble on 10 Aug 2010
I'd like to try this program but unfortunately it doesn't function for me. The first time I launched it all its menus were disabled. When I tried to relaunch it for the second time it showed a dialog box that its trial period was over! Something must be wrong here. Has anyone else got the same issue?

Sorry about the problem with Stay. I'm currently testing a new version that fixes the bug; it'll be available as soon as testing's finished, I'm expecting within the next day.

To get the new version working properly you'll need to delete

~/Library/Application Support/Stay

and

~/Library/Preferences/com.cordlessdog.Stay.plist

If you have any further problems, please feel free to contact me at support@cordlessdog.com

Sincere apologies for the inconvenience,

Matt
