BetterSnapTool – Amazing Application Series

What is BetterSnapTool?

In short, it is a tool for resizing and positioning windows.

One of the most awkward things with MacOS is how it handles resizing and positioning of windows, especially on a multi-monitor setup. The solution to this frustration is BetterSnapTool.

How I use BetterSnapTool.

I actually only use BetterSnapTool to do these 5 things.

Adjust current window to take left half of screen.
Shortcut: Ctrl + option + cmd + left arrow to move a window

Adjust current window to take right half of screen.
Shortcut: Ctrl + option + cmd + right arrow

Maximize current window
Shortcut: Ctrl + option + cmd + up arrow

Move current window to next monitor, maximized:
Shortcut: option + `

Snap a window to Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left, Bottom Right
Previously I had keyboard shortcuts for this, but it was a bit too much. Mouse/trackpad works just fine for these, as they are not used as often as the above mentioned. You simply drag a window to a corner and it will resize it and position it correctly.

That’s it! It might not seem much, but I use it a lot!

It’s $3.99. Probably best buy ever under $5.
Get it here. Enjoy. 🙂
