Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Dropshelf gives you a handy place to put files, images, text and web links. Just drag an item to the edge of the screen, and Dropshelf slides out.

Use Dropshelf to hold your items while you drag them between different windows, tabs, full screen apps and spaces.

You can also store things in Dropshelf to keep for later. You can have multiple shelves, and they will minimize out of view when not in use.

It supports copy and paste too, so you can save your clipboard contents to Dropshelf. It is also integrated with OS X in other thoughtful, workflow-enhancing ways — check out the User Guide for some tricks and tips.

What's New in Version 1.2.2

Updated for OS X Yosemite, plus a couple of small tweaks and fixes!

I love this application

I use it every day, particularly in conjunction with other apps. I can create a file, Hazel automatically moves it to the folder where it should live and then opens it on Dropshelf so I can attach it to an email. Or I edit an HTML file, hit a keystroke and Keyboard Maestro puts the file on Dropshelf and launches my FTP program for easy uploading.

The one feature I’m really missing is a keyboard shortcut for opening the last closed shelf. Applescript support would also be great, but the only reason I want Applescript support is so that I can create that keyboard shortcut.

A Clean Desktop.

Yea! No more messy desktop. I have a habit of putting things on my desktop (both my real and my computer desktops) that I need to work on. However, I often fail to put them away when I am done. BAD HABITS. Now, thanks to Dropshelf, at least my computer desktop is clean from distractions. And, now all I see is the beautiful desktop pictures I have installed. If only there was a shelf near my real desk that I could put the clutter on… Hmmm. I am going to have to figure out a way to make it disappear into the wall. Oh well.

I dont understand what it does..but, I own Pop Clip & Dwell Click.

I bought this ap solely based on their reputation. There other products are OUTSTANDING, so I assume this app is as well.
