Description:

The Problem:
Managing windows can be frustrating, requiring precision control of your mouse or trackpad for clicking, dragging, pushing and pulling your windows to the size and position you desire. Even with all this work, it’s very difficult to get windows exactly where you want them, so most of the time windows are left scattered all over the screen.

The Solution:
Divvy, a solution for both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, is an entirely new way of managing your windows. It allows you to quickly and efficiently "divvy up" your screen into exact portions. This lets you take maximum advantage of your screen real estate without any hassle at all. Window management has never been this easy.

With Divvy, it’s as simple as a single click and drag in the Divvy interface and your window will be resized and moved to a relative portion of the screen. If that seems like too much work, you can go ahead and create as many different shortcuts as you'd like that resize and move your windows.

Divvy is designed to be quick, simple and elegant, staying out of your way as much as possible while providing the most powerful window management available today.


Features:
• Resize your windows with the innovative Divvy grid
• Customizable grid size (from 1x1 up to 20x20)
• Works with multiple monitors
• Unlimited user-customizable keyboard shortcuts
• Access Divvy from anywhere using a configurable global hotkey

Incredibly useful utility that should be a built-in OS X feature, BUT... - This is a great program---it is amazingly useful to be able to assign a keyboard shortcut to (for example) "make this web browser window take up the entire right half of the screen." I only have TWO requests: 1) I wish this program came with some helpful DEFAULT keyboad shortcuts! It's a bit annoying to have to make your own, and I bet a lot of people don't even realize they can. 2) I don't think there's any way to import/export keyboard shortcuts, which is annoying if you want to use Divvy on (for example) your home and work computers.

Essential Utility - Use this every day (global hotkeys for positioning windows) for years. The application is extremely light weight and is regularly updated. Tried other applications and this one is the most efficient.

Review by Rock_Wood

works better than the LG software. - I have been usingt he LG software for many months both on my Mac Mini and my PC at work. On my PC it kept asking for update but never let me install it. Finally it stopped working. DIvvy on the contrary is working smoothly on my Mac and is more flexible. Great software. Next week I’ll try it on my PC.

Review by mjhoy

One of the few essential apps I use. - I’ve used Divvy for a few years now. It’s very simple, and very effective. I have just a few global shortcuts defined on my laptop keyboard: left half of the screen (Command-[), right half of the screen (Command-]), and full screen (Command-Return). 95% of the time this is all I need, and I don’t have to move around windows or resize them with the mouse. There are times when I miss the wonderful, much more powerful tiling window managers on Linux I used to use — but ultimately I prefer something like Divvy for its simplicity.
