••• Cinch is compatible with macOS 10.12 Sierra •••

Cinch gives you simple, mouse or trackpad-driven window management by defining the left, right, and top edges of your screen as 'hot zones'. Drag a window until the cursor hits one of these zones then drop the window to have it cinch into place.

Cinching to the left or right edges of the screen will resize the window to fill half the screen, allowing you to easily compare two windows side-by-side (splitscreen).

Cinching to the top edge of the screen will maximize the window to fill the entire screen (fullscreen).

Dragging a window away from its cinched position will restore the window to its original size.


Release Notes:

• Fix for Cinch crashing when coming out of sleep on late 2016 MacBook Pros with Touch Bar.

Works as advertised. - Cinch does what it says it will do with no fuss. I use it constantly on Yosemite with a 24” LG, and don’t even think it is not part of the OS (which it should be!). Work on the left; movie on the right. ;-) Requires Accessibility. I work a lot on iOS, so it seem a little pricey at $7; but, for some reasons, Mac apps are all expensive.

New Icon is HORRIBLE - I love this app have been using it for years. But your new Menu-Bar icon stinks. Change it back please.

Review by Maverik877

Cinch Continues Its Success! - The first time I used Cinch was back in 2012 when I owned a a 2007 macbook for the first time. The computer was great but one of the first things that pained me and I immediately needed was a feature that mirrored Windows snap. I could not live without this and needed it for every day use because it makes anything so much simplier and better managed. I cannot imagine NOT having this feature on any computer I'm using. To my suprise there was Cinch in the app store so I downloaded it to give the app a shot. It served its purpose, is well made, and I used the free version on multiple mac's I've had over the years. I just finished building one of my most recent macbook's and the first app I went to download is Cinch. I saw that it was $6.99 but I did not bat an eye. This app has served me well for a number of years and I give it full support, one of the best ever!!!

Review by Mr. Luigi

A productivity Diamond! - Cinch is a FAR more user friendly, and functional, way to manage windows than Sierra’s clumsy native window management feature. As such, it is more than worth its modest cost. To be honest, I can’t believe Apple does not include something like Cinch as a built-in part of macOS because of the way it dramatically enhances product. Can not imagine using my Macs without the functionality provided by Cinch. Bravo Developers!

Review by Planefreak10

Performs as promised - Way better than apple’s update that includes this feature to full screen two apps. It doesn’t support all applications, but Cinch does! I love it and use it everyday without even thinking about it. It’s an app that EVERY mac user should have installed.

Review by drew7650

Excellent - The value of this application is well worth whatever I paid for it. This app makes me 2x more productive when working with multiple windows, which is constantly. Again, well worth whatever it costs, as it was the one thing I truly missed from my windows machine.

Review by Jmania

Using it for years daily - love it - I have been using this app daily for years. It makes MacOS so much more usable and elegantly works its magic with multiple monitors also. Nice work!
