Description:

Moom allows you to easily move and zoom windows—on one display, or to another display—using either the mouse or the keyboard. Moom lets you...

• Hover over the green button and choose from five preset size/location options in a pop-up palette
• Use a grid to 'draw' a window's desired size and location
• Define custom controls to move and zoom, move to other display, center, resize, and more
• Chain custom controls together to execute complex window management tasks
• Save window layouts to easily recreate a desired window arrangement at any time
• Automatically activate saved window layouts on changes in monitor layout, as in when you disconnect from your work display and then open your laptop at home
• Use keyboard mode to do all of this, and more, without ever touching a mouse

Once you've tried Mooming your windows, you'll never go back to simply moving and zooming them again.

Version 3.2.1
Review by Dutchess23

Why is Apple giving Developers Such a hard time? - Moom is THE BEST! I have tried a bunch of window placement applications, and Moom simply just works. Having said that, buying from the MAS is becoming more and more difficult, as developers are literally “boxed” in by “Sandboxing” rules, disallowing them to add features that one would get if one purchased direct. I see the MAS going by the wayside if this continues. It’s unfortunate really. I recommend this app whole heartedly, but if you want to receive future updates for your applications, start buying direct or you will not. This goes not just for Moom but for all apps, because after doing some research, I have found that most of my apps are in fact, outdated compared to the version if I had bought direct. Back to Moom, well, it has a bit of a learning curve, but the developer has great video tutorial support on the website, so once you set it up just the way you like it, it works like a dream. The developer is responsive and very good, and has other apps that are well built. I give this a ten star rating. Get it, you will not be dissapointed!

Hex layout MUST GO - First, I have LOVED this app for years and it is one of the 1st things I install on my machine or anyone else’s that I customize for them. Second, DO NOT break something that was working perfectly before. The hex grid instead of the square grid is needlessly complicated and senselessly hard to parse. Thankfully I use this app mostly using keyboard shortcuts because otherwise I would have instantly deleted the app after this change. Please don’t mess with my workflow if you can’t offer obvious improvements by doing so. Stylistic choices are just that and are generally not worth the turmoil. By the way, this is the first app review I have EVER written - that is how much I HATE this change.

Love the new grid builder - Great solution to the grid issue, really like the new full screen grid, along with all the other great features Moom has always had. Still the best window management for Mac!

Version 3.2.9
Review by AdamKayce

I use it all day, every day - I've been a Moom user for years, and while new programs have come along that handle window management, I'm happily sticking with Moom because it has everything I need (and stuff I don't). For example, I can't stand the "window resizing on drag" option, because I drag windows for placement only, not size, so I disable that option in favor of Moom's mouse and keyboard options for resizing, which suit me perfectly. Moom is one of those apps I can't imagine living without, because I rely on it every day, all day.

Review by QueueBear

i’ve been waiting for this app for years - i put this in my “to evaluate” list years ago, after hearing about it on a podcast - but, because i’m a huge procrastinator, didnt try in until a few days ago i have waisted *so much* time of my life worrying about sizing windows “just right” to fit my eccentric work habits - my experience told me that no app could *ever* get close to satisfying my obsessive, OCD-like need for pixel-perfect alignment i’m here to tell you that MooM (i like that spelling) fits my need perfectly, and i’m using only a fraction of its capabilities if you are meticulous about your window-based working environment, no matter how idiosyncratic, MooM is the app for you - hurry, give these fine people the pittance they’re asking for the app (or try the demo first, you’ll pay) i wish i had evaluated this app a long, long time ago folks, this app represents everything that Mac development is all about: - great attention to detail - clean interface - powerful, yet easy to use - delightful working on my Mac has become even more enjoyable, something i though could not be possible i dont write eloquent reviews like this one often - it gives me great joy to pen (type) this one
