Moom3.2.17

09 December 2019

Versatile window manager.

Overview

Moom allows you to move and zoom windows - using either the mouse or the keyboard - to predefined locations and sizes, or to full screen mode.

When used via the mouse, all you need to do is hover over a green resize button, and Moom's interface appears. When used via the keyboard, press your defined shortcut, and the Moom keyboard bezel appears; you can then move windows using the arrow keys and modifier keys.

Moom can be run as a traditional application, a menu bar application, or a completely faceless background application.

What's new in Moom

Version 3.2.17:
Bug Fixes and Improvements
  • Resolved a possible issue relating to macOS Catalina's Sidecar feature that was affecting a few users.
  • Fixed a screen redrawing issue related to using multi-step actions.
  • Blacklisted Plexamp, as it was accidentally triggering Moom's pop-up menu. (The window isn't resizable anyway.)

Usually I am not a fan of very simple Apps, but this one was a long time coming. I didn’t think having the ability to click to place windows precisely without overlapping wouldn’t be worth the price, but after the trial, I realized that the time savings alone would pay itself off in a matter of months. As a power user that focuses on true productivity gains, this app has made it to my recommended apps list for the increased speed of windows placement, along with Alfred, DefaultFolderX, Hazel, Fantastical, 1Password, TotalFinder and others that are among the first to be installed on a new machine. The amount of customization users can do is great, and the stability is rock solid. I can only think of one more thing this niche program could do to be better: add workflow sets to attach to program window sets (kind of like the terminal can). So in features I give it 4.5 Stars (the rating on MU seems to be jumpy and stick). Bottom line is, it is worth it to me and other people who like tidy screens & increased efficiency. Since it is free to try, don’t just take my word for it: try it yourself. If you do not find it invaluable in saving time that would otherwise be spent positioning windows, then just delete it, and hopefully Hazel will clean up any old prefs it left behind.

Being able to define your own shortcuts and adjust the raster size, that's what I needed and Moom covers this like a champ.

First utility I install when setting up a Mac, I dread the thought of a world without Moom.

Unable to get working under garbage security sh**e Mojave. So many layers of 'control' and restrictions on my computer that I can no longer use many apps without endless troubleshooting/problem solving. MB Pro 2018 rapidly becoming paperweight instead of useful laptop. 5 stars for Moom, 0 for Mojave

I tested Moom on my Macbook Pro 13 mid-2012 ... during all the test the Moom application was fast and I did not notice any heavy process or Ram. Moom is a must-have window manager on the Mac. Despite the recent patent troll forcing the developer to resort to a tentative workaround, it is still the only window manager that gives me an option to precisely define each resizing option. Other similar apps might do a lot of what Moom does, but a small number of the additional features that only Moom offers matter a lot in my workflow, and for that, I'm more than happy to pay for MULTIPLE licenses to support this developer. The overall benefit of the app and the quality of the app far overweighs the recent unfortunate patent trolling. Keep up with good works! The design is really great ... I highly recommend Moom for Mac OSx users and I give 5 star to this application

Tried Magnet, Flexiglass, etc. and finally settled on this app. I did not think I'd use the custom settings, and within an hour had 8 custom settings set up. Easy to use (just play with it or read the help file) and to configure. There are other similar apps that perhaps have more power (and cost more), but I could not figure out how to take advantage of their added features. Moom is quite easy to set up as you wish.

Great app but it's a shame that they had to redesign the grid thingy. I don't fancy the new hexagon style at all, but I understand it had to be done because of crappy patent troll.

I loved this app, but the new hexgrid is the most annoying and confusing way to display the size and position of a window! How is this more natural?!? Hexagon shapes for square windows on a square display? And how does such an odd shape shorten the travel distance of the mouse? Still a nice app (if you are using only the keyboard shortcuts) but this hexagon design decision shocked me! I am so disappointed (and still perplexed), this used to be a great app and my favourite window manager!
