    Hello.

    I'm wondering if there is an app, or a way, or using something similar to Aero Snap in Windows 7 on Snow Leopard? It's a feature of 7 I really like, I use it constantly. Other than writing some Applescript, can anyone think of something that lets me do it?

    SizeUp is your solution or if you don't want to pay TwoUp
    I can’t recommend SizeUp enough, if you are a student it is invaluable when you have multiple pages documents, pdf's and safari windows being able to organise them quickly saves so much time and effort

    There is also cinch which is free or $7 if you want to avoid hitting "ok" every time it starts up.

    I have used it for a while now and have had no problems with it so far.

    Try BetterTouchTool. It gives you the AeroSnap features, plus a lot of other useful features (trackpad customization, etc). And it's free :D.

    I never paid for cinch... and I have the full version. All I have to do is ok a message every time it opens (trial version), if you get annoyed by the message then you can buy it.

    +1 for BTT. Been using it since it came out and have never been disappointed. New features are always added and it is a great little program. And it's free :p

    Make that +2. BTT is a fantastic application, and it really unlocks some of the wonderful powers of the trackpad (if you have a MacBook).

    BTT Works with mouse + dragging to edges

    This is false, I use this with my mouse and drag windows to the edges and it works just like Windows 7 Aero. :cool:

    Hello, reviving this thread, any Cinch user is experiencing the following error: when looking into a Folder in the finder with Lion OS X, does it look empty when in reality it is not empty?
    I am seeing this randomly after using Cinch.
    I do appreciate your feedback, thanks!

    I also suggest you look at Moom - http://manytricks.com/moom/ - for windows management. You can create custom keyboard shortcut. It's awesome.

    After recently asking about this myself here, I ended up with BetterTouchTool, and it seems to be the best option by far. It is really easy to use and you can configure limitless custom gestures to do a variety of things. Best of all, it's free. :cool:
