Mac snap windows to screen edge

A couple months ago we covered a Mac app called Moom that would let you move windows to various positions on your screen much like what is offered in Windows 7. The grid interface it incorporates is intuitive and I still stand by how much more productive the app makes me, but I know some of you were probably drawn away by the fact that it is $5 to buy. There is, however, a free app called Spectacle that brings some of the same features just without the pretty interface.

The screenshot above shows off all the settings found in Spectacle, and I’m sure you’ve realized by this point that the app focuses on customizable keyboard shortcuts for moving windows around your screen. If you’re a mouse junkie this won’t be the app for you, but any keyboard ninja will feel right at home using Spectacle.
