  • Magnet (Windows Manager) icon

    Magnet (Windows Manager)

    Commercial Mac OS X Website

    Every time you want to copy content from one app to the other, compare files side by side or multitask in any other way, you need all the windows arranged accordingly. Magnet makes this process clean and simple. In just one drag to the edge, you snap any window into left, right, top or bottom half of your screen. And by dragging windows to the corners, you snap them into quarters. Taking advantage of such arrangements eliminates app switching and greatly enhances workspace efficiency.

    Even nice, edge-to-edge fullscreen is just the matter of a single drag to the top of the screen. And if dragging doesn’t float your boat, Magnet supports keyboard shortcuts for every command it has to offer. We’ve got a little icon sitting in the Menu bar where you can find predefined shortcuts, or create ones that fit your needs.

    In a nutshell:

    ·Left/Right/Top/Bottom halves of the screen supported
    ·Fullscreen & all four quarters of the screen supported
    ·Activated by dragging, customizable keyboard shortcuts or via Menu bar
    ·Runs both on Retina and regular displays
    ·Up to six external displays supported
    ·Built to run on all OS X versions since 10.8 Mountain Lion
    ·OS X 10.11 El Capitan optimized (including Dark Mode support)

  • Manta icon


    Free Mac OS X Website

    🎚 Flexible form. You can turn on/off field and save as default setting.
    🏗 Drag & drop for reordering items. This makes editing easier.
    📐 Use SVGs for logo for better printing.
    🎨 Custom designed & highly customizable templates.
    🏷 Custom statuses for invoices.
    📊 Export PDF for print or email.
    🔒Complete Privacy. You financial data stays where it belongs.
    💯 Totally Free.

    The main reason I decided to build this is because I need a simple tool to create good looking invoices, estimates, and receipts but couldn't find one that suits my needs. I don't do invoicing for a living but I do need it occasionally so an ideal invoicing app just needs to be good at one thing and one thing only, which is making invoices. I really don't need a full-fledged bookkeeping or accounting software.

    I believe there are many people such as freelance designers, developers, photographers or writers... also have such need. However, most (if not all) products I found have these these problems:


    Most invoicing products nowadays is web-based, which means you’ll need to maintain a new account (possible a monthly fee, too) just to create an invoice.
    Sure, there some open-source products that can be self-hosted, but that will introduce a new layer of complexity to your workflow. Who will setup the product? Who will maintain the server? Who will cover the cost? ...
    You will always need internet connection to be able to create your invoices. It can be slow sometimes.

    When you use a web service, most of the time, you’re giving away your data whether you want it or not. Financial data is sensitive and I believe that no one should know about your data except yourself.
    With that in mind, I know that Manta would need to satisfy these criteria:

    🚀 Fast!!!

    👍 Friendly UI & UX

    🎉 Has nice looking templates

    🔒 Does not touch user’s data

    💰 Free! :)

    If you think Manta delivers these, let me know by putting a star on this project 😉
