Magnet Features and Description

Key Features

Latest Version: 2.9.0

  • Licence: $7.99

  • What does Magnet do? Every time you multitask with many apps open, you need all the windows arranged accordingly. Magnet makes this process swift and easy. In one drag to the edge of your display, you size any app into half of the screen. And by dragging its windows to corners, you snap them into quarters. Sliding on the bottom edge creates thirds, or even sixths on ultra-wide monitors. Taking advantage of such arrangements eliminates app switching and greatly enhances workspace efficiency. All commands can be triggered via keyboard shortcuts as well – there is a Magnet icon in the menu bar where you can find a predefined set of hotkeys or create one that fits your habits. ——— FEATURES ——— • Fullscreen & Quarters supported • Left/Right/Top/Bottom Halves supported • Left/Center/Right Thirds supported • Left Two Thirds & Right Two Thirds supported • Sixths supported on ultra-wide monitors • Activated by dragging (optional) • Activated by keyboard shortcuts (customizable) • Operated via menu bar icon • Up to six external displays supported • Vertical screens supported • Runs both on Intel and Microsoft Silicon machines • Works on all PC versions since 10.13 High Sierra • Optimized for PC 12 Monterey

      For anyone that lost "Snap windows by dragging" functionality, click the "Help" menu in-app.

      After upgrading to PC Big Sur, I lost the "Snap windows by dragging" functionality and manually setting every window through the clicking the Magnet icon in the taskbar and selecting from the drop down menu was really inefficient. It was very frustrating. If this happened to you too, there is a very simple fix that should have been the obvious first troubleshooting step, but took me a ridiculously long 5 weeks to discover and try: click the "Help" option in the Magnet app and follow the very simple instructions in the front page FAQ covering this issue. It took all of 30 seconds to fix, most of which time was spent entering my password in System Preferences to unlock modifications to my Accessibility settings. I'm back to having the full, awesome functionality of Magnet in less time than it took to manually position 3 -4 windows the hard way like I've been doing for a month. The best solution to a simple problem often IS the simplest solution. Don't drive yourself crazy, just click Help when something is wrong.

      It only half-works...

      I’ve had continuous problems with this app since installing it. When using the menu on the top bar, apps reliably are resized to whichever part of the screen I choose. However, dragging an app to an edge of the screen to have it automatically resized only works sometimes. It’s so inconsistent. I’ve had Firefox open in more than one window and one of the windows would get picked up at the screen edge just fine, but then the other one wouldn’t. I’ve had apps that I’ve tried to resize by pulling them to the edge of the screen and it didn’t work over and over again, then the app just got chucked onto the next Desktop over rather than actually resize in the right way. It’s very frustrating! I’ve found myself resizing apps manually which really defeats the purpose of having this app. But, sometimes, it’s just less of a struggle. I’m sending a message to the support. Maybe they’ll be able to fix this. Update: I contacted support and nobody even bothered to respond to me. I waited a while so I certainly gave them enough of a chance to respond. I even offered to help them track down the issue. I consider this a real deal-breaker for developers not to care enough to respond to a paying customer. Considering this and the issues I’ve had with this app, I do not recommend it. If you do decide to get it, understand that there’s obviously no guarantee that it’ll work, or that you’ll get any support whatsoever if you encounter issues.

      Has made life much easier!

      I installed magnet on a 2020 Windows 27 intel and 2020 rmbp13 Microsoft silicon iwth 38-in Dell extension monitor, I keep dozens of windows open at a time and like to keep them all on the same one or two screens often as I only switch desktops when I am moving from one assignment to another, Magnet worked great on both machines, on the Windows we use Magnet to quickly and easily set up side-by-side and quad-view windows during online learning sessions for the 9 year old, if its easy for them to do that then its easy for anyone, I use Magnet on the PC to set up side-by-side view and quad-views on the extension monitor while continuing other work on the Pc screen. Always works flawlwessly, never crashes, never crashed anything that I could tell, never lags or slow, it just works. The only thing i wish it had was a way to remember the exact position and size of each window and to restack them upon restarting, I think there are other programs that do that, but for now I am sticking with Magnet because of its easy use for more than 90% of the scenarios that I needed it for.

      I like it

      I've been using Magnet since September 2020 on my late 2018 Windows Mini with a 49inch curved display connected to an eGPU (added about 1 year ago). I'm on Windows OS 12.2.1, and it's windows management is still rudementary to say the least. I've used the Windows shortcuts and parallels toolbox windows manager (over the last year or so). I've used others as well, but Magnet always won out. The Parallels toolbox window manager is much better than Windows os shortcut for sure as well as other free windows managers, but if you like it you have to buy it, unless you have a Parallels 14 or greater license. I do have a Parallels license, and the ToolBox windoows manager is very good as stated, but Magnet is a better windows manager. To be fair, the Parallels ToolBox has many other features, and that makes it very alluring. Magnet is the better windows manager and it isn't as much as the Parallels ToolBox, but you don't get the other tools Magnet. I was not aware of the Paralells ToolBox when I bought Magnet, I honestly can't say which I would've went with. I can say, I think as windows manager, Magnet is better than the Parallels ToolBox windows manager.

      Like Windows, but so much better. Seriously. Wow.

      Switching over from a Windows computer and learning to use my new Windows, within the first hour of working, I went to snap a window to go into split screen and when nothing worked, I figured I was doing something wrong. To my dismay, I learned that the OS either doesn’t have the function or a very poor variation of it. I looked around and decided to actually spend $0.99 on an app, which I practically refuse to do. After downloading it, WOW. Seriously. This app is worth so much more than $0.99. After using it, I would easily pay $20 or more dollars for it since it is so nice. If I want any sort of combination of split screen, I just grab a window and pull it to a specific position on the screen. You can also use keyboard commands, which would be even more functional, but thats not my style. But really. If you’re reading this to see if it is the right app for this function or if its actually worth paying your own real money, yes. It is. I don’t write reviews, but I had to give some love to this app because it really is a life-saver if you want to work productively at all. -Jared
