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.

• 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 at any time using a configurable global hotkey or menu bar icon


Release Notes:

• Compatibility with future macOS update

Review by lsal

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.

WOW~!!! from an X-Ultramon User - This product is so intuitive and functional! A little tinkering and this software is a must have! I am a heavy mulit-monitor user within the windows environment (3 monitors) and have used many different software for multi-window management and ended up with Ultramon for windows for YEARS. I was looking for a Mac equivelant since there is no Ultramon for Mac. Online Forums and other sites mentioned SizeUp and was right about to purchase it as a standalone product, but decided to search for it on the app store, and I'm glad I did and saw this app and read the amazing reviews. At first, I thought the app was WAY too simple for my needs, but as I read through the instructions, it was way more intuitive and advanced than I thought. The only thing I would improve about this app was that the Devs should make all the checkboxes "on" by default in the General Tab: Start Divvy, Show Divvy, Keep Panel open until dismissed, cycle between screens... And the shortcuts should always have "Global Shortcut" enabled by default (or else why use it?). All in all, such a great product I now can't live without and glad it's on the app store (for auto-updates, etc). I'm now going to purchase this for my Windows machines as well. GREAT PRODUCT~!!!

Supreme - I've used Divvy for 7 years and it has been solid the whole time. Always updated for new versions of macOS. It's a great productivity booster for those who work with many windows and need to maximize their screen space. Works great with a multi-space and multi-display setup.

Vital piece of software - I have been using this tool for over 6 years and I just discovered you can double the size of your grid by pressing the Option key. Great for all resolutions and screen sizes.

Very impressive - Though this app is a bit on the pricey side ... it is well worth it. I've been looking for an app that will allow me to divvy up my screens in unique ways, and this app certainly fits the bill. I'm very impressed.
