yoink

Today, in 2011, I released Yoink v1.0 to the public, and it looked like this:

I know, right? Its icon looked a bit different, too:

Anyway, long story short, I’m having a sale over this weekend on the App Stores, where you can purchase Yoink for Mac and Yoink for iPad and iPhone at a discount.

If you’re using Yoink for iPad and iPhone’s Clipboard Monitor – which, if active, automatically saves anything you copy from other apps, even if Yoink is completely in the background –, you’re probably familiar with this dialog since iOS 16:

While this is useful information for apps you wouldn’t expect to be pasting at that moment, if you’ve activated Yoink’s Clipboard Monitor, you don’t want to have to confirm each and every single paste operation – it can get annoying very quickly:

I did file a feedback with Apple for adding an option to “Always Allow” pastes during the early days of iOS 16, and thankfully, in iOS 16.1, they introduced exactly that:

How to enable Always Allow “Paste from Other Apps” for Yoink.

– Open Settings.app
– Scroll all the way down to Yoink and select it
– Tap on Paste from Other Apps
– Select Allow

With this enabled (you can revoke it at any time using the same steps), you go from the confirmation-hell above to this:

When copying now, Yoink’s Clipboard Monitor picks up the copied item right away, without confirmation. A notification that a paste occurred is displayed.

You’ll still get notified that Yoink pasted from the source app, but you won’t need to confirm the paste each time 🥲

I’ve got two maintenance updates to share with you.

Yoink for iPad and iPhone v2.4.2

Yoink is your files and snippets shelf for anything you can drag, copy, share or download.
It syncs across your iOS devices using iCloud.
You can quickly Handoff files to Yoink for Mac.
You can let it monitor your clipboard – even when Yoink itself is in the background – to save anything you copy or cut. Its Picture-in-Picture overlay gives you full control over what it saves, and you can pause/end it any time from there as well.
Use Picture-in-Picture not only for videos, but also for images, PDFs, eMails, websites, and more. You can even scroll through longer documents using the Picture-in-Picture controls.
Its Shortcuts library lets you automate almost every aspect of the app and gives you full control.

Version 2.4.2 brings the following improvements:
– It improves renaming files
– It fixes a potential battery drain issue when PiP was active and Yoink in the background

Transloader for Mac, iPad and iPhone

Transloader lets you download links on your Macs, remotely from your iPhones, iPads, and other Macs.
With its Link- and File actions, you have full control over what happens when a link gets added to a specific Mac, or after a file is downloaded by the app. For instance, it works together very well with Downie.
With “Login Cookies”, you can even download files that require a login. And if you forget, you can log in after and restart the download.

Version 3.1.2 fixes a rare issue with its Share extension.

Yoink for iPad and iPhone v2.4.1 is now available on the App Store.
It’s a maintenance update, improving its Clipboard Monitor, certain areas of its UI, as well as general performance and stability.

Yoink is a file- and snippet “shelf”, in a “hold this for me while I do something else for a while” sort of way.
Anything you can drag, copy, share or download, you can store in Yoink.
When you eventually need it, you can access files either directly from within the appYoink’s custom keyboard, and Siri Shortcuts. It also syncs across your iOS devices via iCloud.

What’s New in Yoink v2.4.1?

+ Improvements to Yoink’s Background Clipboard Monitor

When active, the Clipboard Monitor will save anything you copy or cut in other apps, even if Yoink itself is in the background.

  • v2.4.1 now allows you to start, pause, update and end your Clipboard Monitor sessions with Siri Shortcuts.
    By “update”, I mean you can change its timeout, and which data type it should look out for (everything, links, texts or images).
  • In Settings.app > Yoink > Clipboard Monitor, you can enable Display Last Saved Item, which will show the item the Clipboard Monitor last stored in Yoink in its Picture-in-Picture overlay.
  • Also in Settings.app > Yoink > Clipboard Monitor, you can disable Confirm Monitoring, which, when starting the Clipboard Monitor from within Yoink, will forego all confirmation dialogs and start the Clipboard Monitor right away, as requested by a number of users.
  • The Clipboard Monitor can now be started from Yoink’s Home Screen Quick Actions
  • Lastly, instead of terminating the Clipboard Monitor entirely when a time out occurs, it now pauses instead, making it easier to restart it.
+ General Improvements
  • Downloads now show their state if Use Small Previews is enabled in Settings.app > Yoink > Appearance
  • Downloads now show the size of the download, if available
  • The UI for renaming files has been revamped to use more space
  • Editing a URL now refreshes its icon
  • Yoink’s Share extension now works faster
  • Maps/Location items are now a separate option in Yoink’s filter (accessible by tapping Showing All at the bottom)
  • Many bug- and crash fixes

Where can I get Yoink?

Yoink is available for iPad and iPhone on the App Store – a one-time purchase of $5.99 / € 5,99 / £ 4.99.
It requires iOS 14 or newer.
To sync across your iOS devices, an iCloud account is required.
