Does not work as advertised
I have a very simple need that Stay’s marketing material indicated it would seemingly solve. I go between roaming with my laptop (using 4 spaces) and to my desk setup where I plug in two additional monitors (which opens up 2 more spaces). I’ve arranged the windows in both setups and saved the window configuration manually with Stay. For the laptop, Stay does not seem to be able to restore windows to any space but the first one. For the multi-monitor setup, it gets it 70% or so right. It also caused one of my Terminal windows to become inaccessible. I had to quit the application and relaunch to resolve the issue. I had to turn off all the automated saving because it kept happening while I was working and was incredibly distracting. So I only use it in manual mode because of those issues. Spaces has been a part of OS X for many releases now. I would expect this would be an integral part of this application, especially given the $15 cost for a utility application. I really wish I could get a refend.
flakey and only half-functional
To start off, Stay only works withabout half of the apps I use. It has no effect on PyCharm, Evernote, or Hipchat. Some apps like App Store are returned to the right size, but placed in the wrong location. And even for the apps it does work on, it doesn’t work all the time. Overall, Stay hasn’t really saved me any work it just shuffles around the work I have to do. I do not recommend this version.Stay: if you fix the bugs and expand the compatibility I’m happy to re-try the product and revisit this rating.
i have bad OCD so this app saved me. thank you and please keep developing/improving the app. i hope to use for a long time!i would recommend using the .* ‘title match pattern’ command for each of your applications. that way it will ‘lock in’ what position/size you want for that app and when you hit restore, will bring it back based on the last ‘saved’ position/size. basically the .* command saves your current position/size. developer is really helpful with communicating and support. highly recommend this app. after using the .* ‘title match pattern’ command, i’m really happy with this app and saves me a lot of time of resizing whenever dock/undock with external monitors.

Nice, when it works
Constantly loses the position of my windows. Only seems to work maybe 30% of the time.
