    Hey, I have my iMac hooked up to my HDTV with a very long HDMI cable across my living room, and I was wondering if there was a Mac app that would be able to either allow you to set presets to open specific apps (like Chrome), go to a specific webpage (like Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, etc.), and move the app to a separate screen (my TV), or just allow you to set keyboard shortcuts that would move apps to different screens. (Jeez, now I realize that that was a really long sentence.)

    I have DoublePane from the Mac App Store, and it says it works like that for dual displays, but it doesn't for me. I probably haven't investigated it enough.

    Please give me anything you can think of for this solution. Thanks! :) :apple:

    Ok, I found BetterSnapTool on the app store for $1.99. Gonna try it out.

    So how is BetterSnapTool? Is it a bit cumbersome??

    Yes

    BetterSnapTool works well, but if you are forgetful, you will forget the keyboard shortcuts, if you set any. I just decided to make a separate "TV" user on my Mac, put bookmarks on my desktop, and set a good resolution for the user so I can actually see things on my TV.
