Yoink 2.5 continues to improve drag and drop on the Mac
Vienna, Austria – Matthias Gansrigler – developer of the Mac apps ScreenFloat, a productivity app that creates floating screenshots, flickery, a flickr desktop client, Transloader, an iOS/Mac combo app to download URLs from an iOS device to the Mac via iCloud and Briefly, an app to easily create still motion videos – today announced the immediate availability of the latest update to his drag and drop “helper” app for Mac, Yoink.
Yoink simplifies drag and drop between windows, spaces and (fullscreen) apps by providing a “shelf” where dragged files can be placed. This way, the mouse is free to quickly and more easily navigate to the desired destination of the drag where the drag can quickly be resumed from Yoink’s “shelf”.
It not only accepts files from Finder, but also all kinds of content from almost all applications, like text snippets or images from websites, for example.
Multiple files in a drag are condensed into a file “stack” in Yoink so that they can be dragged out together at once. These stacks can be split up so single files can be dragged out.
To make identification of the needed files painless, files can be QuickLooked by the press of a button.
The app’s behavior is very customizable to better integrate with the user’s workflow.
What’s new in version 2.5?
* Files can now individually be pinned in Yoink so they don’t disappear when dragged out
* The list of “ignored apps” can now be inverted to a list of “allowed apps”
* Better handling and recognition of drags
* A contextual menu for opening files with compatible applications and revealing them in Finder
* No more linen!
* Many small improvements and bug fixes
