Feeling lost without you...

about BetterTouchTool and Shiftit May 2016

I used BetterTouchTool for so long that when I didn't want to pay for it and went back to how things were before it felt like my screen got smaller and I was using the mouse to drag and flip windows around so much I wasn't getting as much done. Did a quick search today and installed Shiftit, a free, open-source replacement and man, does my screen feel more useful again. Got maximize, sides, corners, incrementally increasing and decreasing. More options than I had before and I'm loving it!

Craptastic interface, but still great

Unlike its competitors, BetterTouchTool is free. That's enough justification for me to put up with its clunky setup interface.

Awesome free window management tool for mac

about BetterTouchTool Nov 2012

BetterTouchTool for MacOS is a really intuitive way to so window management, and has great default settings that make it work "right out of the box". At the same time it is very customizable if you want to experiment with more advanced keyboard shortcuts and gesture settings.

Excellent software!

about BetterTouchTool and Cinch Jun 2012

Easy customization of both trackpad/mouse type devices and keyboards. And as a bonus includes Windows7-like window snapping ability, which works really well (I found it to be better than Cinch which is commercial).
