Best Mac Apps to Buy: Magnet

Photo Credit: (

Magnet is one of my most used daily Mac apps. I believe it is the only app that I have ever bought from the Mac App Store (for $1.99). In my opinion, it is well worth this investment.

Magnet helps you to organize windows you have open into different sections. This is apparently a common feature for Windows 10 (although I am not a Windows user myself), but for some reason it has not been replicated on Mac. You have the option to make 2 windows fit on one half of the screen each, or to put 4 windows in each of the corners of your screen. I did not realize how useful this functionality is, but now that I have started to use it, I can never go back.

If you are constantly multi-tasking between different screens, this is a must have for your Mac. I also find myself using Magnet a lot when I need to quickly resize a window to full screen, which is something that used to take a while when I had to drag out the screen completely.

Magnet is one Mac app that I would recommend buying for any user (unless you know of another app that offers this same functionality already!).

Magnet Recommendation Rating: 5

This post has now been updated to reflect a new ratings system that I have implemented, which is scored as follows:

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone

3: Something worth prioritizing if interested

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
