    "Good things come in small packages"

    January 31, 2013  |   By esternot

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    Works with XP or Vista

    Rarely crashes

    Small package size (<1MB)

    Cons

    No option to run app on startup, although a shortcut can be added to the Startup folder or it can be configured to run on startup through MSConfig

    CNET package includes bloatware, so use custom installation option to bypass additional software installations

    Summary

    Nice little utility that works reasonably well given that Microsoft refused to release a backward-compatible Aero utility that allows one to easily split a screen vertically between two windows. Once a more stable version is released, I might consider paying for this software if it were to provide the option to easily align/split two windows horizontally, something that Windows 7's Aero Snap doesn't do.

    "Very Very useful feature"

    June 28, 2012  |   By teddushane

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    This tiny feature of Win 7 is very useful to display 2 side by side windows. Previously, one had to use "Tile Windows Vertically" from the right-click (context) menu of the Quick Launch toolbar. And that's AFTER you had to minimize all but the 2 windows you wished displayed.

    Cons

    Uses ~ 22 MB of memory. But note - having a system tray icon, it's easy to shut off to regain that memory.

    "ok if you want that feature"

    April 22, 2012  |   By jmcrate

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    My son thought it was the cats meow, but it got on my nerves

    Cons

    It misinterpreted my actions to think I wanted the programs I was working on go to half screen when I didn't then it took about three or four actions to get the dang window back to where I had it. The worst thing was that I could find no way to turn it off, or uninstall it, had to just delete files and hope I got it all.

    Summary

    It seems pointless, like a throwback to Win 3.11
    It would be harmless if it could be turned off or even uninstalled.
    It did not show up in Control Panel Add and Remove Programs and could not find it in Windows Manage Services and Applications.

    "Just what I was looking for as an Add-on... Perfect!!!"

    April 21, 2011  |   By dcracing1

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    This app/download worked like a charm. I was actually thinking about upgrading my desktop because of this function on Windows 7 and had to see if they had an application/software for it. Great!

    Cons

    None I could find so far, however I did notice that on my dated XP it doesn't always "Snap" perfectly like my "7" laptop all the time and have to "Snap" again.

    Summary

    Great software at a great price, i.e. ... FREE!

    "two monitor setup"

    August 3, 2010  |   By tomaszszewczykcadm

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    The idea is great enabling retrospectively enable a great Windows 7 feature on older system.

    Cons

    The only problem I found in delivery was the side snap did not work on a two monitor setup.

    Summary

    If they would incorporate their snap hot-key into the dual monitor setup support I think it would up the rating by another star now 3/5 because its decent but not great.

    "Really Good!"

    April 25, 2010  |   By sunburntfeet

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    Really helpful. Works like it says.

    Cons

    No serious cons, a few bugs, mentioned below, but I'm still using it daily and I'm sure the bugs will be worked out through its beta testing.

    Summary

    As with all betas it has a bug or two. When you you click the maximize button, you can not drag and "un-snap" it from full size, you have click the "restore" button. I'm not sure if I found the option to but I'd like to turn off the splash logo when I have the program start with windows. Like I said earlier, they could easily be fixed during beta, no big problems.

    "Awesome little thingy!"

    March 21, 2010  |   By wickitsB

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    No problems or crashes. Works just like it is supposed to work.

    Cons

    I wish the snap option could also "snap" windows horizontally.

    Summary

    Terrific!

    "great so far on xp"

    February 7, 2010  |   By jules141414

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    working great so far for a variety of windows. I set my margin to 2 pixels to avoid accidental snapping and it seems to snap and unsnap just like 7. Works good with a desktop extended on 2 monitors

    Cons

    Dragging to the window to the top re-sizes the window to fill the screen, without actually maximizing the window, so if you maximize your window in the regular way, you can't unsnap it.

    Summary

    try it

    "Does exactly what it says"

    January 9, 2010  |   By dankenyon86

    Version: AeroSnap 0.61 beta

    Pros

    Easy to use, and works very well.

    Cons

    You need to start it up every-time you start windows.

    Summary

    Works well and does what it says on the lid, well worth the download and works well with stardock.

    Updated on Jan 25, 2010

    ok there is an option to start up with windows :s feel silly now, also it has been kinda scethy at times for me not working on totally crashing but it is a beta
