Developer's Description

Thank you for your interest in Fiwi. Fiwi is a compact, faceless (it has no interface per se) application to help with moving files and folders via 2 symmetrical Finder windows quickly and effortlessly. I found it really helps saving time and avoid confusion. Fiwi provides the 2 symmetrical Finder windows on the desktop, side by side (columns) or one on top of the other (rows) or and quits freeing all memory (RAM). The windows clear the dock wherever you keep it ( bottom right or left of the screen) and have a small gap between them. It works with dual screen systems. Why does Fiwi exist? I always move this file to here, that folder from there and reorganise my computer so I can find information quickly when I need it. I spend a lot od time creating new finder windows. It can become caotic. Some time ago I realized you really need only 2 well arranged windows to move any file or folder from one place, like the Download folder for example, to the folder inside which you want it to live. I though one must be able to call these two windows up easily and quickly when needed. They should cover enough of the desktop and hide almost all the icons and open windows behind them. The software ought to preserve the window with the selected file (the one to move) and set up another one in which one can select the destination folder. This would save all the resizing, repositioning and set up in a very efficient and pleasant way for the job ahead. Hence Fiwi was born. Just put it in the dock and on the sidebar of your Finder windows, double/click on Fiwi and start mooving information from a to b, that simple! I reckoned a utility like Fiwi it's going to be worth less than a dollar because it performs such a small job. I use Fiwi untold times on a daily basis. I am sure you will too.
