Yoink - Simplify and Improve Drag and Drop on your Mac

By Matthias Gansrigler

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Yoink simplifies and improves drag and drop between windows, apps, spaces and fullscreen apps.
Featured on the Mac App Store in the categories 'Invaluable Utilities', 'Get Stuff Done', 'Staff Favorites', 'New and Noteworthy' and 'New Year, New You'

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.
