With macOS Big Sur and Macs with Apple Silicon on the horizon, I wanted to give a quick update on my Mac apps.
All of them are now available in a new version, making them run nicely under macOS Big Sur, and have been recompiled to natively run on Apple Silicon.

Here’s a quick run-down of what else is new:

Yoink for Mac (website + free trial | Mac App Store | Setapp)
v3.5.11, received numerous quality-of-life improvements

ScreenFloat (website + free trial | Mac App Store)
v1.5.18, adds PDF as export option and fixes a few minor annoyances

Transloader (website | Mac App Store | iOS App Store)
v2.1.1, big upgrade in the works, this update makes sure it runs nicely on the new system and architecture

Glimpses (website + free trial | Mac App Store)
v2.2.3, improves video rendering speed by up to 6x and fixes a couple of minor issues

flickery (website + free trial | Mac App Store)
v1.9.48, minor compatibility update

SiriMote (website | direct download (Freeware))
v1.3.9, improves the connection to the Apple TV Siri Remote and fixes minor bugs

I hope you’ll like them 🤗

It seems quite a few people have been getting new iPads recently – to those, I say: congratulations on your purchase 🥳
Coincidentally, that’s probably why I’ve been asked quite frequently lately how to use Yoink in Slide-Over or Split View.
Here’s a quick guide on how to do it.

1) Use Yoink in Slide-Over

– With a full screen app open, swipe up from the very bottom of your iPad to reveal the Dock
– Drag Yoink from the Dock to the side of your iPad’s screen

In Slide-Over, you can reposition Yoink to either edge of your iPad’s screen, or dismiss it by dragging it all the way to the right.

2) Use Yoink in Split View

– With a full screen app open, swipe up from the very bottom of your iPad to reveal the Dock
– Drag Yoink from the Dock to the top right of your iPad’s screen
Alternatively, If Yoink is already in Slide-Over, drag the its top horizontal indicator to the top right of your iPad’s screen, and it will enter Split View.

In Split View, you can adjust the size of each Split view app by dragging the indicator between them.
You can remove an app from Split view by dragging the top horizontal indicator of the app.
