BetterSnapTool for Mac is a handy utility that lets you automatically resize windows by dragging them to different areas of the screen. You can snap them against the sides or the corners, and you can even set custom window sizes and placements for certain specific situations.

Pros

Smooth functionality: This app works just as advertised, and when you snap it against the edge of the screen it will immediately resize to preset parameters. Depending on where you drag the window, it will react in a different way, and the interface descriptions make it easy to see what will happen in different cases, so you can get the result you want.

Customizations and shortcuts: In addition to the standard set of window sizes and shapes that come preset with the program, you also have the option of creating your own. You can set a particular size and shape for a window, and then you can assign it a command or hot key for quick access whenever you need it.

Cons

No help: There is no Help feature to go along with this program, and there is also not much in the way of support. While the app does work well, there seems to be nothing you can do if you run into a problem, which is unusual for a paid program.

Bottom Line

BetterSnapTool works well and provides a convenient service for helping to keep your screen clear and organized as you work. You can tailor its functions to suit your specific needs, and the only major drawback is that there is little help to be found if you do need it. For a $1.99 investment, this app provides more than enough functionality to make it well worth it.
