Large monitor support- any tricks?

When using 2 monitors, you can flick windows between the screens,etc. I have a 24" widescreen monitor. It is really too wide to do anything (except watch video) with an app maximized. My question is, are there an ways to make it act like 2 monitors? Or at least to help manage apps s o they display in 2 columns without manually moving and resizing each window each time?
