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.

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.
Needs a Full Redesign from Scratch - It is not only *still* causing my 2016 MacBook to crash on waking from sleep, but it is also causing major issues on my iMac Pro where applications will freeze while opening and quitting (and thus also preventing normal shutdowns due to the apps never closing). When Cinch is disabled, this does not occur at all. I guess it’s just time to abandon this app I’ve been using since macOS 10.6 until the developers can entirely scrap the legacy tool and rebuild it from scratch. BTW if you do rebuild it from scratch to work on modern macOS’s, please also remove the dashed lines to align with Apple’s removal of psseudomorphic design tendencies, and entirely eliminate the animation. The entire thing will feel fresh and snappy.

Much better than Apple's built in splot screen function - With a new computer I almost didn't bother installing Cinch since Apple implemented a similar finction right into the maximize button on all windows, but it's no where near as quick and seamless as Cinch. I am back to using it and happy with the decision. Thanks to Cinch for making this!
No Longer Functional - Does not work as advertised. Does not work at all. Dragging windows to hot zones has no effect any longer. Mojave is my OS.
Bought back in 2012 and Loved It Ever Since - Super useful and simple app, very happy I bought this back in the day. Very useful little app.
