Desktop App Review: Mizage Divvy

Stephen Yagielowicz

Mizage Divvy boosts workspace efficiency through window management, making it easier to do more while staying organized.

Whether you are using a laptop computer with limited on-screen real estate, or a multi-monitor desktop system, today’s multitasking power users often have many active windows to contend with, each of which has a preferred size and placement — but much time can be lost to finicky window positioning in an attempt to find the right “flow.”

Using the program is as simple as clicking and dragging within the Divvy interface to resize and move a selected window to a relative portion of the screen.

Enter Mizage Divvy (www.mizage.com/divvy/), a Mac or Windows-based system that enables a focus on efficiency through powerful window management, allowing users to resize windows via an innovative grid layout.

According to Mizage, managing multiple windows can be a frustrating problem that requires precision control over a mouse or track pad for clicking, dragging, pushing and pulling windows to the size and position the user desires.

“Even with all this work, it’s very difficult to get windows exactly where you want them, so most of the time windows are left scattered all over the screen,” states a Mizage spokesperson, explaining that the solution to this problem is Divvy. “[It] is an entirely new way of managing your workspace. It allows you to quickly and efficiently ‘divvy up’ your screen into exact portions.”

Using the program is as simple as clicking and dragging within the Divvy interface to resize and move a selected window to a relative portion of the screen.

“If that seems like too much work, you can go ahead and create as many different shortcuts as you’d like that resize and move your windows,” Mizage concludes. “Divvy is designed to be quick, simple and elegant. We want it to stay out of your way as much as possible while providing the most powerful window management available today.”

Highly configurable with unlimited customizable keyboard shortcuts, Mizage Divvy offers a lot of functionality at a low price. The full version is $14, a free trial is available.
