Do you own a Mac but love some of the main features of Windows. I know I do, especially that feature where you can drag a window to the top or side of the screen and it will automatically resize. It is a really quick and easy way to organize your windows. Well, if you want this feature on your Mac you should definitely try Cinch by Irradiated Software. Cinch is the perfect app for quickly resizing windows in a very simple manner.
Cinch is a very well hidden app. You can open it up and then hide all traces of having the app open, including getting rid of the Menu Bar icon. This is a fantastic feature because you can forget you are even using an applications and it is just part of your computer. The animations of the windows resizing is also quite nice. It gives you the feeling that you are snapping your windows into position.
Cinch is a very useful application. I personally use it for aligning two windows next to each other for easy use. It can also be used for making your application take up the whole screen, which is great for those apps that don't have full screen capabilities. A very nice feature is that, when covering the full screen, it knows whether you have your dock hidden or not. This is very handy because when your dock is hidden it doesn't just leave a bit of a gap there and when it isn't hidden it doesn't get covered up.
Cinch costs $7.49 on the Mac App Store. I personally believe that this price is a little high as this feature comes free with Windows. However I have tried free versions of this type of app and have discovered that they are far slower and poorer quality. I have since decided that $7.49 is a reasonable price, purely because it works really well and has some very nice freatures.
In conclusion, Cinch by Irradiated Software, is an exceptional application for anyone looking to easily resize their windows. It costs $7.49 but works very well and has several very nice features, include the ability to completely hide the application from the Menu bar.
