Dropzone for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / November 05, 2014

Dropzone 3 for Mac makes it easy to share, move, and save files to your preferred locations via drag and drop.

Pros

Add your own: The program comes with a few locations already added including Downloads, ZIP, Email, and Share Text. You can also add your own custom destinations for anything you use often. There are also quite a few built-in actions, but you can create your own as well.

Multiple access points: Dropzone destinations are accessible via either the Menu Bar icon or a set of pop-out icons that appear when you hover your cursor over the middle left or right edge of the screen. You can decide which side of the screen you'd like to use to access the app on the Preferences page, which you'll find by clicking on the Menu Bar icon and then on the Preferences button.

Cons

Buried Help: There is no link to a Help document in the app. You can find documentation by going to the actual product page and then following the link there. But for inexperienced users, this process is needlessly complicated.

Bottom Line

Dropzone 3 for Mac adds a nice set of features and convenient functionality to your computer.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Dropzone for Mac 3.2.1.
