Is there a utility for Mac OS X that will group windows (2 separate apps)? Similar to how objects are grouped in PowerPoint or other design apps. I would like both windows to move together.

There are 5 apps on the App Store that match the search term "arrange windows" and I have heard good things about three of them (in reverse aplhabetical order):

The one I use is also on the app store, but doesn't show in that search term but it's fabulous.

bmike, thanks but "arranging" windows is not what i need. i would like to "group" windows so they drag together. Divvy looks interesting nonetheless – Chirag Patel Mar 5 '12 at 5:31
Yowsers - stacking them and moving them - or tiling them and moving them? I'll edit the beginning of my answer since it's clear none I've listed does grouping across apps. Let me know if you'd prefer I delete my answer so your question sits here unanswered... – bmike Mar 5 '12 at 13:36
Tiling and moving them. I don't think you need to to delete it since the checkmark indicates a correct answer. – Chirag Patel Mar 6 '12 at 18:03

X-Assist. However it seems to be an old app.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Can you provide a link to the app or screenshots? – sameetandpotatoes Oct 2 '13 at 1:06
