Mac OS 10.8.5- What's the best app for adding the Windows Snap feature? Googling led me to Better Snap Tool and Hyperdock- if either of these (or others) have proved to be useful to you, please let me know! Thanks to all in advance.

I use spectacle which works nicely -- it's all keyboard shortcut (or drop down menu from the icon in the toolbar) instead of just the dragging-to-the-edges thing you can do in windows, but it works well and there are a lot of options.

Cinch works for me.

Moom will allow windows to be snapped at edges. You can also make additional configurations based on a grid system.

I added Better Snap to my MacBook Pro (late 2011 10.7.5) a couple of years ago and it has always done exactly what it's supposed to. Very useful.

Better Touch Tool (by the maker of Better Snap Tool) is awesome and adds other features I find useful.

Seconding better touch tool. It's a handy little program. I have it set up so a three finger swipe left or right takes the window to half the screen and a three finger swipe up maximizes the window.

If you're willing to think about the problem a little bit differently, Optimal Layout is a really great tool for whipping your windows into shape.

Better Touch Tool is great-- lack of window snapping is one of my top 3 biggest annoyances as a Windows User who finds himself on OSX from time to time.
