Your files and snippets shelf

By providing a temporary space for your file- and app-content drags,

Yoink frees up your mouse to let you navigate more freely and comfortably to the destination of your files. Yoink accepts any file from Finder, and app-content from almost any app.

    Been using Yoink pretty much since it came out and have it has proved a very useful utility in my day-to-day work. Haven't used it on iOS yet though, as haven't really found the need for it yet, but maybe after the announcements from Apple later today… who knows?

@aaronoleary Hi, Aaron. Yoink recently received Handoff between Mac and iOS, a clipboard history feature and full compatibility with macOS Mojave, including dark/light mode 😃 On the iOS side, there's iCloud sync (Mac-sync will follow later) and *tons* of more new features and improvements

I use DragonDrop as my drag'n'shake solution to drop things on a temporary shelf, but since it's no longer maintained, I've often considered switching to Yoink. I also use Paste and Paste for iOS for cross-device clipboard sharing and Alfred 3 for managing text snippets... Yoink 3.0 (with both Mac and iOS apps) is a really promising release with Handoff and iCloud sync making me wonder if it's time to try something new!

I have been using Yoink since I first switched to macOS back in 2011. Highly recommend it. It is always one of the first things I install on a new computer.

Yoink! is on of those applications that you forget is NOT part of core MacOS. I have been using it for years and love it. I recently wiped my computer to get a fresh start on MacOS Mojave and I had completely forgotten that Yoink was an extra app I had to download. It is just an app that you use everyday but forget that it's still an app. Similar to Alfred, Bartender, or iMessage. This is a good thing. However I have to admit that I didn't realize the new changes had come to iOS with Handoff and I am excited to try those out. For everyone else, this is one of those 'must-have' apps like Bartender that seamless fit into your daily work and improve the core OS.
