By providing a temporary space for your file- and app-content drags, Yoink frees up your mouse to let you navigate more freely and comfortably to the destination of your files.
Yoink accepts any file from Finder, and app-content from almost any app.
Whether you want to move or copy files to a different folder or hard drive on your Mac, or wish to collect images from a website and text snippets from documents before you move them to the desired destination, Yoink has got you covered.
Yoink was designed to be there when you need it, but also not to be there when you don’t need it.
While the app remains out of view most of the time, when you start to drag a file or app-content (like an image from a website), Yoink appears at the edge of your screen,
allowing you to temporarily store your drags there so your mouse is free to more easily and comfortably navigate to the destination of your files.
At the target window, space or (fullscreen-) app, you can drag out the files of Yoink and place them where you want them to go.
Yoink accepts any file from Finder, and almost any
app-content from apps.
Whether it’s a document you want to move or copy from one folder to another, or you want to collect images from different websites, Yoink can help you do it easier.
Use QuickLook to quickly identify files - either via the
file icons or the more detailed QuickLook Preview.
Use Force Touch to be even faster moving
and copying files with Yoink.
Easily select all files, reveal them in Finder, QuickLook files or pin them to Yoink using Force Touch.
Change where and when Yoink should appear to make it fit your workflow
and daily routines perfectly.
For instance, you can change it not to show up at your screen’s edge, but directly at your mouse cursor, making adding files even easier and faster.
Set up Yoink to ignore apps where you don’t need it and add a keyboard shortcut to manually hide and show Yoink.
