Yoink – Improved Drag and Drop 3.6.1

Last Updated on November 14, 2021 by admin

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.

For a quick video introduction, further information and tips and tricks for getting the most out of Yoink, please visit its website.

“Simple, elegant, perfect. This is a fantastic app. It works flawlessly”. – Benwiggy, UK App Store
