Description

Gladys is a drag-and-drop shelf that holds things you want to set aside, such as links, text snippets, map locations, contacts, images, photos, emails, messages and much more (even if the application that the information came from is removed)

It works with any app that supports drag-and-drop, and helps keep you focused by letting you quickly set something aside, without having to consider where it needs to be dropped, or having to constantly switch between apps.

• Works with any app that supports drag-and-drop, but also provides an extension for apps that don't yet support it, as well as the ability to paste items to & from the clipboard.
• Quickly search for items inside the app or via Spotlight. Access your top items from the home screen / Today widget, your Apple Watch, and even iMessage.
• Annotate items with notes, custom titles, and tag items with labels that allow you to easily categorise, browse, and sort your collection.
• Take your collection with you on your iPhone, and keep it updated by turning on automatic iCloud syncing.
• Import/export/merge collection archives simply by dragging.
• Ideal for bookmarking between apps: For example you can quickly return to dropped email items by selecting 'Open' in their info view, or quickly share links between different browsers.
• Experienced users can get details on dropped items and extract or modify specific data components (e.g. extract the URL of an image link, instead of the whole item, add a new image, or edit the title).
• Power users can use Gladys' Files extension to view/edit items in-place from other apps, as well as exporting all items in a ZIP file for sharing.
• Technical users can inspect binary data using the in-built hex viewer, download items pointed to by web links, and even archive web pages.
• Contains no analytics, ratings prompts, or noise.

Gladys is free for casual use (up to 10 simultaneous items). Power users with larger libraries can expand Gladys to hold unlimited items with a 99 cent in-app-purchase.

What's New

Version 1.1.15

• New option to display item labels in the main view.
• Added an explicit "sync now" button to the iCloud preferences panel for convenience. Performs the same action as dragging down on the main view.
• Better previews of colour-palette objects dragged into Gladys.
• Voiceover improvements: Added shortcuts to the listed main item actions, corrected an error that made the option panel switches not work, as well as exposing correct Voiceover actions when editing titles and notes of items. Also corrected cases of data component editing actions incorrectly exposed in the info view.
• Fixed: Unlocking an item from within a list of search results wouldn't work.
• Fixed: Option to allow merging would also mistakenly affect the full-screen previews setting.

Highly Useful

Quick and easy way to manage the clipboard...works fast and recognizes URLs as a separate link...love the labeling for organization...I use this app to quickly capture things to review or read later in the day...it’s a life saver... Gladys has permanently been on my HomeScreen for the last few months now...the shortcut on the share menu I just cannot live without it...I suggest adding a dark color scheme for night time use...Thank you for creating this very useful app!

Love Gladys!

Other than the odd app name and icon, it works great for iOS 11 drag and drop on my iPads. There are 3 ways to get the data (text, photos, gifs, etc.) in: drag and drop, Share/“Keep in Gladys”, and copy/paste). It’s easy to pull out a clip, drag and drop it; the original will stay right there in case you need to use it again. Just started with the app but already can tell it’s going to increase my productivity. And what a bargain, price-wise! Highly recommend Gladys!

An Essential Productivity App

After less than a week of use, Gladys is already one of my *all-time favorite* iOS productivity apps. The app is deceptively simple; the potential use cases in the era of iOS drag-and-drop are immeasurable. On my iPad, the functionality of Gladys already “feels” like a “natural extension” of iOS multitasking. IMHO, Apple should acquire this app.
