Free version you can do good things like move windows side by side.

If you do get licensed, it is awesome. It has editable commands more than the average system. They update so you know support is not dead and will be compatible for future use.

Down side is that it's only for MAC OS, i have been trying to find a windows version/alternative. still finding.
Another one is there's still some lag when you start the macbook pro. you have to restart the program but other than that it's perfect for any multi tasking you deem fit.


Great, unobtrusive tool

about BetterTouchTool and Moom · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I echo what the previous reviewer said! I was testing out a free trial of Moom when I came upon BetterTouchTool and instantly replaced the $10 Moom.

Here are bullet points of win:

  • Window snapping has worked perfectly, and outside of apps with non-resizable windows (e.g. System Preferences), I haven't found an app it doesn't work with (haven't tried more specialized apps like XCode, though).

  • The ability to set custom trackpad gestures with modifier keys is great! I have Shift + Fn + 2-finger swipes in each direction to snap the active window to that side of the screen. Don't even have to go through all the trouble of clicking and dragging :). You can also set gestures to custom key combos, which makes for interesting possibilities in apps like Photoshop.

  • There are a LOT of customizable features with this app. Makes for kind of a messy settings interface, but I will take functionality over slightly more complex settings.

Really not too much else to say about this app. It does what it says (and then some) and does it well! The developer did an awesome job.


Excellent software!

about BetterTouchTool and Cinch · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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).


I could not imagine using my trackpad without it

And for that it is simply brilliant. Very, very customizable. You can set any gesture to anything. It even allows gestures to trigger keyboard shortcuts. Gestures can either be global or application-specific. Some of the things I use it for:

*Three finger click for middle-click (global)
*Three finger swipe up/down to go to top/bottom of page (filling in a missing system function)
*Three finger swipe left/right for undo/redo in Photoshop
*Corner click to hide/show additional toolbars (reduces screen clutter by showing them only when needed)
*Three finger click+swipe down to close the current tab or window (with shortcut cmd-w)
*Three finger click+swipe left/right to change tabs in browser (with shortcuts ctrl-tab and ctrl-shift-tab)

It even does a lot of the stuff BetterSnapTool does. It runs in the background unobtrusively.

Oh, and it's free. It was made by a student in his free time, and it is AWESOME!


Awesome free window management tool for mac

about BetterTouchTool · · Helpful Not helpful -1 Helpful Report as spam

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.


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.
