Such a great utility. I've tried alternatives, but AquaSnap is the best in my opinion. It is very intuitive and easy to master and it fits perfectly into the windows UI paradigm. It's not trying to replicate a tiling window manager and the problems they bring with them. It also doesn't force you to create and select layouts. Instead you have the familiarity and flexibility of a floating window manager with the power to arrange your windows to a tiling layout quickly and effortlessly on-the-fly whenver the need arises. It also gets out of your way. You quickly forget that you have it installed. It makes handling of windows so natural.

At first I was put off by the name, because I thougt Windows 7+ already comes with "Aero"Snap. What is "Aqua"Snap gonna be much of an improvement? I also thought I wanted a tiling WM like I was used to from Linux (i3). No more. You gotta try it out and experience the power in this simplistic approach.

With AquaGlass users can turn most Windows to overlays.

Just the right amount of features. Perhaps even a few too many for my need – the shake to close and transparent while dragging features I don't fancy – however those can be easily disabled!

To be honest, when testing the app (in trial mode) maybe 2 months back, the tray icon used to silently crash … a lot. So I left the app for that reason … but later on decided to come back and try again (which I rarely do when apps present bugs during trial). Since its features are so damn simple and good, and the memory footprint seems to be virtually nothing, I gave it another shot anyway. And nope! For me, the silent crash is completely nonexistent! Thefore buying without a doubt! It's currently the best window snapper/dohickey I've found for Windows (and I'm spoiled coming from macOS world where these kind of apps are abundant). The feature I like most (can't mention all here) is double-clicking window edges and corners to have the windows expand until reaching another border (snapping elements can be set in the preferences). That alone is why I'm buying this app.

The only reason I installed this is that, as silly as it sounds, the integrated AeroSnap of Windows 10 doesn't even work correctly. Not sure if it's due to a specific resolution, but I experience bugs that have been reported more than a year ago: https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/bumcsx/windows_10_1903_window_snapping_bugs/

I can't speak of the other functions for now as I haven't tested them, but at least window snapping works as expected. Sadly, it seems all open-source alternatives are long abandoned, since Windows is supposed to natively offer this kind of functionality.

Excellent...does what Windows should do natively.
