Window managers

Window management on MacOS isn’t particularly great. Sure, you can make optimized apps completely full-screen or have two apps side by side in a split-screen view.

What if you don’t want the full-screen experience and want to organize a handful of floating windows on your desktop? Well, without a third-party app, you’ll be dragging floating windows around freely and manually resizing everything to fit. If you want a similar window snap experience like you get in Windows, consider one of these four apps:

  • Magnet: $0.99 (£0.99 or AU$1.49)
  • BetterSnapTool: $2.99 (£2.99 or AU$4.49)
  • Moom: $9.99 (£9.99 or AU$14.99)
  • Divvy: $13.99 (£13.99 or AU$21.99)

 

Here, you go ..

 

Dropbox or Google Drive

The Unarchiver

The Unarchiver is a power file extractor tool for Mac. It can unzip ZIP files, extract RAR files and much more.

Hocus Focus

If you’re prone to having a bunch of windows open at once but would rather your desktop stay neat and tidy, Hocus Focus does just that — automatically.

 

Amphetamine

Tired of constantly having to adjust your Mac’s Energy Saver settings to keep it from powering off in the middle of something important? All you need is Amphetamine. Once it’s installed, just right-click the menu bar icon and your computer will stay on indefinitely (or for a set amount of time).
