New Usage Tips

On this website, I collect useful tips to get the most out of Yoink for Mac – I’ve added a couple of new tips to it!
Tips are also available for the iOS version of the app here.

Eternal Storms Software Productivity Bundle

New on the Mac App Store are bundles. Yoink is part of the “Eternal Storms Software Productivity Bundle”, where you get Yoink, ScreenFloat and Transloader at ~25% off!
You can check it out here (macOS Mojave required – though apps purchased with a bundle on macOS Mojave are available on earlier versions of macOS for free re-download).

Yoink Overview

What is Yoink?

Yoink offers a temporary place for file- and app-content drags to free your mouse so you can more easily and quickly navigate to the actual destination of your drag.
This is especially helpful when it comes to moving and copying files between different windows, spaces or (fullscreen-) apps.

How does Yoink fit into my workflow?

Yoink stays in the background most of the time, waiting for you to drag someting. The app fades in at the edge of your screen when you start a drag, like a file in Finder, or app-content like an image from a website, or text from a document.
Drag your files to Yoink, and your mouse is free for you to navigate more easily and comfortably.
Yoink will hold on to the files you drag to it until you drag them out again.

The app can be customized in a number of ways. You can set up where it should appear (at either side of your screen, top, center or bottom; or at the mouse cursor), when it should appear (when a drag starts, or when a drag reaches the edge of your screen) and what apps it should (or should not) appear in.
If a file drag contains multiple files, a Stack is created so you can drag them out together again easily.
Stacks can also be split up if you’d like to drag out one specific file in that drag.
QuickLook is available for all files you add to Yoink, as icon previews for quick identification and as full previews for a detailed look. A keyboard shortcut lets you hide Yoink if you currently don’t need it, and show it again when you do.

Pricing and Availability

Yoink for Mac is available on the Mac App Store for the price of $7.99 / £7.99 / €8,99, with a free, 15-day trial available on its website.

Yoink is also part of the “Eternal Storms Software Productivity Bundle” – together with ScreenFloat and Transloader at ~25% off on the Mac App Store (macOS Mojave required – though apps purchased with a bundle on macOS Mojave are available on earlier versions of macOS for free re-download).

It requires at least macOS Lion 10.7.3, macOS High Sierra 10.13 or newer is recommended.
The app is localized in English, German, French, Italian, Chinese (Simplified), Korean, Japanese, Portuguese (Portugal) and Portuguese (Brazil).

Yoink is also available for iPad and iPhone, exclusively available on the App Store for the price of $5.99 / £5.99 / €6,99.
