Mac OS Utilities
Yoink simplifies drag and drop between windows, apps, spaces and fullscreen apps.
Featured by Apple in the categories 'Invaluable Utilities', 'Get Stuff Done', 'Staff Favorites', 'New and Noteworthy' and 'New Year, New You'
When you start dragging a file in Finder or content from an application, Yoink fades in a tiny window at the edge of your screen so you can drag to it.
This frees up your mouse so you can comfortably navigate to the destination of the drop and resume the drag from Yoink's window.

New in Yoink v3.1
New Features and Improvements:
- New Languages: Chinese (Simplified) by Peter Kang (ICanLocalize), French (updated) by 'Lazuly' (ICanLocalize), Italian by Damiano Doria, Japanese by Koichi Matsumoto, Korean by 박우석, Portuguese (Brazil) by Victor Figueiredo (brlingo.com) and Portuguese (Portugal) by Ana Vale Pereira and updated by keytranslations (ICanLocalize)
- To provide a cleaner and nicer interface, Yoink now shows some interface elements only when they're needed (when the mouse is near)
- Improved support for mails from Mail.app - an email can now be dragged from Mail.app to Yoink and then to Calendar.app to create events from it, with a reference to the email
- Improved support for Photos.app
- Reduced CPU cycles and power usage when waiting for "promised files"
- In order to use less power and CPU cycles further, Yoink now does not try to generate QuickLook Preview icons for files like apps, folders and volumes - those are just icons anyway
- Improved handling of webloc files and different url schemes (like afp or ftp)
- When several files are picked in Finder to be dragged to Yoink, Yoink now remembers the order of the files
- Added a new Quick Tour and About window
- Fixed a bug regarding displaying QuickLook Preview Icons during launch of the app
- Fixed a bug concerning webarchives that couldn't be opened after being added to Yoink (for more details, please see this blog post: https://eternalstorms.wordpress.com/2015/07/10/security-scoped-nsurl-bookmarks-and-safaris-webarchive-files/)
- Fixed a bug in the German localization where the "Clean All" button would be placed inappropriately when resizing Yoink's window
- Fixed a cosmetic issue where Yoink's window would animate at launch from default size to the user's preferred size
- Fixed a bug where a very, very short drag would show Yoink without hiding it afterwards
