    I was doing some research on monitors and I came across an interesting feature on LG monitors called split screen. LG is releasing a 34" Ultra-Wide QHD 21:9 Thunderbolt monitor, as well as a 31" Ultra HD 4k/2k 16:10 Thunderbolt monitor this year which will both offer this feature. It allows the user to arrange the display into up to 4 sections in order to create a multitasking environment. In theory, this feature will allow a user to turn a 4k display into 4 individual 1080p displays, which would allow some users to forego their multi-monitor setup and use one display and still be able to multitask.

    This feature apparently has been available for the past year or so on LG's upper end IPS monitors. I haven't come across anyone who has used this feature in OS X. Is there anyone out there who has used this feature on a Mac? How did it work? Was it buggy? What did you like/not like about it?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    LG Split-Screen Software - or Divvy?

    There seems to be a strange lack of information about this LG software feature out there on the internets. And no good video clips of it's use on the most recent LG monitors that I can locate. It's also not really clear how it works with one/two input setups - On the 2014 LG-34UC87 or LG-31MU97 monitors for example.

    On the LG-34UM95 (video).

    You might find that most of what you need can be solved by App Software such as Divvy (for Mac or Win) from Mizage. More $$ than the alternatives, but better(er) Imho.
