Editors' Review

Yoink for Mac enables you to drag and drop files more conveniently. This app only pops up when you need it, and once you start using it, you'll wonder how you ever managed without it.

Pros

Holding location: This app essentially provides a holding location for items you want to move from one folder or location to another. By default, the holding window pops up on the left-hand side of the screen when you initiate a drag, and all you have to do is drop the file into this window to keep it available while you navigate to the location you want to deposit it in. And to make it even more convenient, you can opt to have the window move to wherever your mouse is as you start to drag.

Multiples and Stacks: If you drag multiple files at once, they'll show up in the Yoink window as a Stack. These Stacks can then be moved all at once to their new permanent location. And you can also keep multiple individual files or multiple stacks in the holding window at the same time, so you don't have to keep going back and forth from the original location to the desired destination.

Cons

Combining Stacks: One minor inconvenience is the fact that you can't add to an existing Stack or combine multiple Stacks once they're in the holding area. Stacks can only include files that were dragged all at once, which seems somewhat arbitrary, but it's not really a major drawback.

Bottom Line

Yoink for Mac is a small addition to your computer, but it can make a huge difference when it comes to how quickly and conveniently you can move files from one place to another. Its minimal but intuitive interface makes using it seem like second nature.
