Thought this was interesting and that I'd give it a spin. Double clicking produces a momentary icon present in the menu bar but then nothing... ?? MBP 10.6.8

@dev, so how's the multi monitor support coming from your reply back on Jan 28, 2014?

Can I drag a window to the side of the screen and have it "tucked"?

I love it in Mavericks. Works with a chat window perfectly. I'm even able to enter text and exchange chats while the window is untucked and then I simply move my mouse away and it "tucks" back out of sight again except a tiny edge. Looking forward to tabs as an option in the future although I hope it doesn't become mandatory for all the windows. For example, I don't need a tab for that chat window. My only real complaint is the Swipe feature requires too fast of a swipe for me. I'd prefer the swipe to be able to be slower -- or better yet allow me to adjust it myself to my own preference. Seems stable and handles moving to other Spaces just fine. The developer currently has it pop out a little each time as a reminder it's there, but I think we'll be able to remove that feature with an upcoming update if we want and I'll like that. Also, labels will take care of that issue for some as well. This has a lot of potential to be a huge time saver for those who don't want some unstable bloatware added to their system, but want to organize windows and reduce clutter. I only took off one star for the too-fast-swipe business.

I used it today and I love this app. I love that the window stays on top and moves out of the way. Perfect for reference windows or a todo list. I tried the trackpad gestures and couldn't quite get the hang of it. Anyhow, I'm in.

has some potential and a lot of market as it is the only tool of this type that works with 10.9.. there is definitely a need for an app like this that can solve the window clutter issue.. developers please take a look at sticky windows from donelleschi .. http://www.donelleschi.com/stickywindows/ it was discontinued long ago but it was really promising.. you should copy that workflow which is better then the one you have.. in sticky windows you can easily identify the minimized app.. with this one however, the window gets too lost and it disappears when the mouse is away.. one should tuck by dragging the window to the edge and untuck by clicking on the tab.. tucking should be a user decision and not mouse away decision...

Very interesting little tool. Sadly doesn't work for me as I have multiple monitors and with 4 displays it just goes to another display vs actually hiding away on the display I'm on as I'd hoped.

I'm just curious of people have found and made use of the Swipe feature to Tuck windows (https://vimeo.com/73894710).

If I could just have those small haxie windows from Unsanity again, my life would be complete. A lot of visual types like me, which includes writers, need to see the window …rather than have it minimized to dock—out of sight, out of mind. Wonder if this comes near to that function.

Interesting start. One thing I noticed is that if you use Spaces the tucked windows pop out a bit whenever you change screens.

Thanks al lot! I have been waiting for this since system 9. back than it was possible to drag a window to a edge of a screen and it was reduced to some label.

A few years back, I had set up a macro to do exactly this with Keyboard Maestro. Granted, that'll cost you probably a lot more than what this program eventually will. But it is a handy method. One thing I think would benefit this new program would be the ability to have the same hotkey both tuck and untuck a window. That was one of the nice features of the original Unsanity windowshade was that command-m would shade and unshade. My KM macro is set up to do this, and it's very handy if all you want to do is temporarily move only a single window out of the way and then bring it right back. Indeed, having played with this approach for years now, I would bet that most people will not want more than a very few windows pinned to the edge of the screen. I miss more Unsanity' ability to minimize in place (or put the minimized windows on the screen edge). It was a nice system of clean window management. You can do this with the dock, but you're also stuck with everything else that's on the dock as well. Anyway, I hope this new program succeeds.

There are a few quirks and glitches that need to be worked out, but oh man...this is the closest thing I've seen in years to OS 9's pop-up window functionality, which I've been missing for the last decade. It would be AMAZING if the developer could recreate that functionality in its entirety, but even what's there now is pretty great.

Version 1.0 (beta 6): tried on 10.5.8, for the fun. It works, even if it quits when I try "Cycle…".

I managed to making it work on 10.6.5, changing min on info.plist, good! But I still miss Sticky Windows easy use, you could put a little icon whererever you wanted, with names, on every edge excluding top. Screenshot http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/5165/imageswh.jpg

Great concept. Need to have the window turn into tabs (shortened width), so you can see the names. I use total finder and would wish it to be more compatible, if possible.

If there'd be a working version on 10.6.5, I'll bought it. I miss Sticky Windows. Have to complete rating stars to comment, so I put mean, as I can't try, too bad.

I really miss the docked/Popup folders from OS8. This is a relatively good implementation of the same functionality; although it's definitely a bit clunkier, needing a window selected then a command through the app. In OS8 you just dragged it off the edge of the screen and it docked. I would pay $2 for this functionality. Ratings based on free beta.
