Organize your screen so it suits your needs. Magnet gives you various customization choices so you are in control of your desktop. You can align several windows next to each other so you can avoid flicking between them. Enhance your multitasking abilities by viewing everything on one screen.
Customize the sizes of your screens. Choose between full screen, halves, quarters and thirds. Magnet allows you to make these screens as big or as small as you like. Focus on one screen by making it bigger than the others, while having them available in a smaller screen size.
Dragging and dropping various windows around your desktop can be a frustrating experience, however. If you are in a rush, you don’t want to spend time perfecting the size and shape of your windows, nor do you want to keep dragging and dropping them around your desktop. Moreover, the keyboard shortcuts are a lot to remember and make the software a little tricky to get to grips with. This feature is a bit clunky and may not be useful to some users.
Where can you run this program?
This software is only available on Mac products and can be run on any MacBook version.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. Magnet is heavily outranked by other software, due to its lack of features. Despite being unique with its customizable windows, it doesn’t offer much else to organize the desktop. Try Spectacle for more tools and features that can sort out your messy screen.
Magnet has a promising idea, but is ultimately let down by its lack of extra features. The only real tool that it offers is screen customization, despite advertising itself as a desktop cleaning service.
Should you download it?
Download Magnet if you want a simple software that will enable you to change screen sizes by dragging the mouse, or entering keyboard shortcuts. If you’re looking for more than that, stay away from this one.
