See my comments below. This is one of those can't-do-without programs. It quicky becomes second nature and resizing and moving windows the "old" way is just too much work. Nice job.

I love this product, I really do. Absolutely superb features, ease of use, customizing options. But this product seemed like it was causing a lot of problems. The biggest thing was that it would not let my mac mini restart. It would go to the white screen as with the loading circle to shut down but never get any further than that till I would have to hard shut down my computer. Another thing that it would affect would be that sometimes I could not open my preferences pane accept by restarting(hard shut down) of my computer. And I don't know if it's related to flexi glass but now some of my usb ports on my computer are not even working even though I uninstalled flexi glass... Not happy here. I really really really want this to work, I used to use mondo mouse till I upgraded to Mountain Lion as it was not supported, and had to find alternatives like flexiglass. Still looking for one. I really really want to like this product and would, but it just causes too many serious problems. Also if anyone was wondering. Even though I upgraded to mountain lion, I have not had any of these problems after Mountain lion upgrade until installing flexiglass. Uninstalling flexiglass has fixed all the problems accept for my usb ports which makes me believe that that was not caused by it, but everything else without a doubt was. I deeply regret not being able to recommend this product and because of these problems I can't give the value or overall rating anything but the lowest score since it is not worth the consequences. I hope that you guys can fix some of these issues in the future.

I have everything turned off in the app (move, resize, layouts), but whenever I move my mouse cursor, the app spikes to 3% of CPU usage. Whaaaa?

Still waiting for a fix for the bug where this program misinterprets trackpad readings during window drags, making the window move much faster than expected.

Otherwise, this program is potentially the most efficient with regard to CPU and RAM usage of its competitors.

The best of the breed was Zooom2 but it doesn't work correctly when resizing windows on Lion.

Well, it seems that selecting the Mouse setting rather than Multitouch Trackpad is a workaround.

What i missed before I paid for this is that the window resizing is not four-quadrant, meaning that windows can't be expanded to the left or top. I hope this gets fixed real soon.

I just saw my comment about "window resizing is not four-quadrant," from a couple years ago. Not sure what I was seeing then but I've used this program hundreds of times a day since then. Window resizing is left half, right half, top half, bottom half, quarter-screen (top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right), full screen, and centering. I might be forgetting something here. Also the ability to drag or arbitrarily resize any window without bothering to hit the toolbar or the 1-2 pixel invisible region at the edge of a window is sublime. This is a five-mouse program.

Not Shareware. App Store only. $7.99 US = $7.42 AUD. On the Australian App Store for $8.49 AUD. Nice software but I really don't like the App Store.

Good app does some nice missing features but the memory use of this app seems to be very high....

Your app is very functional, useful, practical, and helpful. Unlike the eye candy confusing mess that mostly is the app Moom.

I use it every day and especially like the features for two screen setups. Works well. (I have to turn it off when using Photoshop because it interferes with cloning key shortcut).

I really like the app but it suffers from stability issues under Lion and I would really love to have the option to bring windows to the front while moving/resizing like it is possible with Zooom2.
I really don't get why such a basic feature is not already implemented...

Flexiglass enables some of the missing features in Mac OS X window management and offers an extremely convenient way to move, resize, maximize, and close windows on a Mac with a mouse, trackpad and keyboard.

Move & Resize
  • Usually, when you want to move or resize a window on a Mac you are limited by its title bar or lower-right corner. Flexiglass enables more comfortable window management. To quickly move or resize the active window just place the mouse cursor over it, press definable key and start dragging windows with left or right mouse button.
Quick Layouts
  • If you used to work with more than one window at a time Flexiglass will help you to arrange windows on your screen any way you like. Just move a window to the right, left or top, and it will automatically resize and move itself to fill the half of the screen or full screen.
Quick Layout Shortcuts
  • User-defined shortcuts allow users to move windows to the right, left, top and bottom halves of the screen or to maximize them to full screen and back to original size.
Multitouch Trackpad & Mouse
  • You can use finger gestures on your macbook trackpad or Magic trackpad to move and resize. Flexiglass is able to save different settings for a trackpad and a mouse and automatically change them when you plug or unplug devices.
Double-click to Zoom
  • Double-click on window title bar is the easiest way to expand it to full screen.
Real Zoom & Real Close
  • You can change the default behavior of standard Mac OS X buttons. Right-click on the green Zoom button will maximize a window to full screen. Right-click on Close window button will quit the whole application.
