Derbyshire, England, UK – If you’ve never come across a window manager before, it’s a tool that allows you to resize and reposition an application window based on a layout of your choosing. If you wanted to work on two documents simultaneously, then the ability to direct one to the left half of the screen and the other app to the right half of the screen without any repetitive mouse dragging and resizing is where the value lies. With most other window managers being quite hardcore in nature – only operating with keyboard shortcuts and offering very little in the way of options or user friendliness – Mosaic takes a very different approach.
The first difference is the custom-written Drag & Drop mechanic which is unique to Mosaic. It has been built from the ground up to be really intuitive to use, integrate beautifully with the ‘look and feel’ of macOS and includes a suite of powerful features to accommodate as many personal preferences as possible, including;
* Grid based ‘Basic Layouts’
* Constraint controlled ‘Advanced Layouts’
* Dynamic on-the-fly layouts with ‘Quick Layout’
* 4 different ‘Layout Views’ for customisable access to your layouts
* Use ‘Layout Groups’ to organise your layouts on a per workflow basis
* Apply layouts directly from the keyboard with ‘Keyboard Shortcuts’ or the new MacBook Pro’s ‘Touch Bar’
* Apply layouts from your iOS device with the amazing ‘Remote Control’ app.
* Multi-Monitor support
* Layout warning/help system
* Comprehensive Help Centre
* And much more…
Version 1.0 already has many groundbreaking features but we’re just getting started. From casual users all the way to creative professionals, Mosaic is the must-have, truly indispensable productivity enhancer.
* macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) or higher
* Remote Control app requires iOS 10.1 or higher
