Who doesn’t like those massive monitor screens? Then comes the desire to use all that screen real estate to its optimal productive level.

Check out the free open source app from Spectacle. You’ll have to remember a few keystrokes to use it but it’ll give you a flashback to those, oh so technically savvy days of shortkeys like Ctrl +Z or Alt +Tab among others. Just don’t flash back too far, you may have gone too far if you start remembering command-line prompts.

Spectacle works on Mac OS 10.7+ platforms to tidy up your desktop by constraining windows in a neat grid based layout so you can focus on the task at hand with all your tools in plain sight — and that means a lot if your office looks like a complete wall of monitor screens or closely resembles the “Bat Cave” setup.

Ok, this might be productivity on steroids for most people, but you never know how useful a tool can be till you try it, right? Comment if you found this helpful.
