Yoink for iPad and iPhone lets you easily and quickly store items you drag, copy or share, for later use.
This way, you can collect items in a central place without having to constantly move back and forth between your source- and destination applications.
The app accepts almost anything you can drag on your iPad, for example app-content like images from websites, text snippets, web urls, eMails and documents.
As a Slide-Over or Side-by-Side app on iPad, Yoink is always ready for you to drag something to it, no matter what app you're in. Just slide Yoink into view and conclude your drag operation.
On iPhone, use Yoink's Share extension, or copy-paste items into Yoink.
Items are stored in Yoink for later use, featuring rich previews for easy identification and full previews for most file types.
Drags containing multiple items are combined into a Stack.
Yoink comes with deep system integration:
- Action Extension:
Almost any item you can share via the system-wide Share sheet, you can send directly to Yoink from there
Yoink has its own keyboard so that inserting items you've stored in Yoink is easy and quick, without having to launch Yoink.
- Spotlight Integration
Any item in Yoink can be found via Spotlight - and the search-results are draggable.
- Files Integration
Access Yoink's files from any app that supports iOS 11's document browser
Improvements and bug fixes in Yoink v1.1.5:
- When adding clipboard content with the Today Widget, the item's name is more descriptive
- Sharing apps from the App Store to Yoink works properly again
- Removed some unnecessary file types from view
Ratings and Reviews
Update: still using Yoink on my iPhone, iPad Pro and iMac almost daily. Still an indispensable part of my workflow! Two things i’m wishing for in the future are iCloud sync and GIFv support so i can see the previews in Yoink.
Original review: I’ve been using Yoink on my Mac for what seems like forever. It’s an essential part of my workflow and I’m really excited to have it on my iPad Pro now! Using it as a slide-over app to drag and drop items to and from is almost exactly like the desktop experience and it’s invaluable for making me more productive on my iPad. One step closer to replacing a laptop!
EDIT: Thank you for your response, Matt! I’m looking forward to your future updates ☺️
thank you for your feedback on Yoink for iOS!
I'll definitely be refining the app and making it easier to share / copy / delete items is on top of my list ;)
A excellent useful App
It's exciting to see such a great update to an App that was off to a good start with potential for the future that you can see.
Ability to create folders is a bit of a wish and a bit of eye candy but based on the quick reply to a URL scheme question I suspect the developer is going to be active.
It's darn close to being a clipboard also that's it was great to see the developer really know his own app and have an idea what people want that more integration was added.
Finally I would say the 2.99 is close to if not already a bargain.
Thanks for the URL schemes.
Yoink makes your clipboard useful
I’ve been a Yoink fan on Mac OS and am thrilled that there’s finally an iOS version. Yoink let’s you collect your clipboard contents—in any format (text, RTF, etc)—and reuse the contents as needed. Yoink comes with a widget that puts your saved clips at your fingertips from the widget or via the app. The developer has a real skill in making things easy to use while packing in a lot of functionality. He’s also extremely responsive to bug reports and feature suggestions. Buy Yoink. You'll be happy you did.
