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).

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.

Yoink for Mac and iOS – Updates

What’s Yoink?

Yoink is an app for Mac, iPad and iPhone that speeds up your daily workflow by simplifying and improving drag and drop.
It accepts almost anything you can drag and stores it for you for later use, like a shelf to temporarily “hold something” for you.

Yoink for Mac Update + SALE (25% off!)

Yoink v3.4.2, available now on the Mac App Store, is a minor maintenance update recommended to everyone using the app.
The update brings improved compatibility with Firefox, Sketch and upcoming versions of Safari, as well as more reliable fetching of favicons (in, where possible, higher resolution) for URLs saved in Yoink.

As I’m sponsoring this week’s AppStories Podcast Episode, Yoink for Mac is – for the entirety of the week – on sale, about 25% off its regular price!
