For a very long time, I have used Windows as my default operating system. A couple of months ago, I switched to Mac OS and a few features that I really enjoyed having in Windows were not in this new OS. At least, not included by default. One of them was the ability to resize the windows of applications by dragging them to one of the screen’s corners. Fortunately, I saw Noah Kagan recommending a cheap app called BetterSnapTool, which allows you to do just that.
BetterSnapTool is a really simple utility that runs in the background, but that can have a really beneficial impact in your workflow. It allows you to resize your applications’ windows simply by dragging them to the top, left, or right side of the screen, and see them immediately resized.
It also gives you the ability to do the resize using keyboard shortcuts, and also setting custom sizes that you may need.
You can also this app to customize what happens after right-clicking on one of the buttons on the top left of a window. It also allows you to move or resize the window below the cursor while holding customizable modifier keys.
It supports multiple monitors, hidden docks, change the design of the preview overlays, and even set application specific snapping sizes, and also select what happens when you double-click a window’s title-bar.
I personally have not gone a lot in depth with the customization of this tool, but have only been using it to resize the windows of the applications by dragging them in the screen sides, and I am really grateful for it.
It costs $2.99, but it is worth the money. I find myself sometimes hesitating to pay for things that can literally have a positive impact on my work and on my life in general, yet I sometimes spend carelessly on things that really do not matter that much. I paid for this simple application, because I believed it was something that could make it easier for me to resize the windows of my apps, and it really was a good investment that I recommend.
