Not sure a BestSnapTool could be any better! One of my favorite utilities and fairly priced too. Set up takes some time, and haven't tried it with multiple monitors yet. Works great on my main screen though!

At first you will use BetterSnap Tool once in a while. After a few weeks you will find it quite useful and after a longer period, not having it is just not an option. The new customizable snap areas give you the ability to create specific size and position for your windows. A truly smart addition to an already great software.

Tried it, bought it straightaway

Simple to use, more advanced features (requiring shortcuts etc) are available but NOT required for basic use.

I've tried some of the alternatives, but was overwhelmed by 'customization' features etc that I didn't need all the time.

Price is right, especially when bought on the App Store, as that gives 5 licenses for the price of one :)

I've tried just about every window snapping app, in my opinion this is the best of the bunch. Very tweakable: it has a preference to increase the "snapping recognition areas" which is perfect for multiple monitor setups. It seems like the developer has thought of just about everything.

Simple operation, great customization options. Works like a charm and worth every penny (and cheaper than the cup of coffee I bought while checking it out).

Dear everyone: you're supposed to be rating the app. If you don't like the App Store's lack of a demo feature, complain to Apple.

It's a cheap buy from the App Store, and it won't disappoint! An amazing Window Management tool. It's a shame that people are rating it down because it has no trial version.

To the developer: Make a trial version with time limit, and make it available on your website, you have nothing to lose if you do that!

Two reasons why I will not purchase this application.

1. No demo to test and see if it works ok.

2. I do not like and will not purchase from the app store.

I only give it a star rating because I can't submit without it.

You can submit without stars. When you click "Write a Review," there's a pop-up menu at the top from which you can choose "Comment." That lets you comment without also rating.

True... I was just looking at "DoublePane".. but now I'm seeing all these similar apps, yeah, they're all 2 - 5 bucks, but I'm not going to buy 5 of these apps, just to end up sticking with one or two them... it's fine if devs want only to SELL their apps on the MAS, but they should also make some DEMO builds... for people to download and try!
