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 enters 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 exactly half the screen, allowing you to easily compare two windows side-by-side (splitscreen). Cinching to the top edge of the screen will resize the window to fill the entire screen (fullscreen). Dragging a window away from its cinched position will restore the window to its original size.

Looking for something a bit more flexible? Need more options for arranging and sizing your windows? Do you prefer using keyboard shortcuts instead of using the mouse (trackpad)? Check out Divvy on the App Store! It’s a perfect companion for Cinch! We use Divvy here at Irradiated Software alongside Cinch. It’s perfect for those times you need extra configurability.
