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

Great support, great app


It didn't work for a while in macOS High Sierra but the developer support is very good and all the issues were fixed!
I can't recommend it enough. This should be a part of the system. Very helpful if you want to move files or collect for sharing.

Additionally Matthias provides great support. Definitely recommending!

Ninawidzę mieć pierdyliarda programików do robienia rzeczy bez których można się obejść, ale akurat ten chyba zagości na stałe na dysku i w startupie.

Update opisu dla wersji 2.0 i używaniu programu przez pół roku:
Jestem absolutnie zachwycony! Jak już wspomniałem - bardzo selektywnie dobieram programy I mam ich minimum, ale to jest dla mnie absolutnie "a must have"!
W obecnej wersji można przeciągać dane bezpośrednio z programu, np. grafikę ze stron internetowych w safari itp.
Polecam gorąco!
