Yoink - Improved Drag and Drop

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.
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.

Customer Reviews

"The app you never knew you needed until you can't live without it"

I love Eternal Storms software, and this app is no exception. Provides a much-needed missing function when working with lots of files scattered about in various places. It might seem like a small time saver, having to move, resize and mess around repositioning windows in Finder to organize files -- but multiply those wasted seconds over the course of days, weeks and years and it really adds up. The "Share" function is really useful as well. I see an iOS 11 version is right around the corner too, which I am looking forward to!

my favorite utility app - now works perfectly with High Sierra

Also extremely responsive developer.
