I have to admit, one of the most used features of my Windows 7 PC at the office is the drag to hot zones feature. Where by moving an applications window to a predefined area of the screen performs a specific action. For example, dragging the window to the top of the screen maximises it.
After using this feature for several weeks, I found my self dragging windows around on my MacBook Pro expecting them to do the same thing! Well until now that wasn’t possible!
Irradiated Software have released a toolbar utility called Cinch, this does for Mac what 7 does for Windows. Cinch works with almost any Mac based application.
Cinch comes in two different versions – the free one with ‘nag screens’, and a pro one for just $7.
Alternatively If you prefer a keyboard-centric approach to window management, you might also take a look at SizeUp or TwoUp. Use Cinch together with either SizeUp or TwoUp to cover both your mouse and keyboard needs.
