Yoink simplifies and improves drag and drop between windows, apps, spaces and fullscreen apps.
The app has been repeatedly featured by on the Mac App Store in numerous categories and was recommended by John Gruber of DaringFireball and Federico Viticci of MacStories.
When you start dragging files in Finder or content from an application, Yoink fades in a tiny window at the edge of your screen so you can drag to it.
This frees up your mouse so you can comfortably navigate to the destination of the files and resume the drag from Yoink's window more comfortably.

Ratings and Reviews
No longer trust Yoink
Thought this app might be a good idea and come in handy...until I restarted my computer one day and found that all Yoinked documents apperaed as "err" and I couldn't find a way to bring them back or where (if anywhere) they were stored to retreive them. Had to rely on my Apple Time Machine to go back several weeks to get them back. Sorry, either it works perfectly or the circle of trust is broken. So I will say, for me at least, it didn't work well enough.
I use Yoink every time I am logged on - it has saved me immeasurable time and trouble. I have never had any problems with it. Highly recommended
Yoink and PopClip
Excellent tool with the essential features. And now integrated in PopClip. That makes work easy!!
