OS OS X 10.8 or later Dropzone powers up drag-anddrop to speed up workflow. Click Dropzone’s menu bar icon to access its grid. It’s split into sections: Drop Bar; folders and apps; actions; and progress. Folders and apps can be used to stash app shortcuts, along with folder move/copy actions. Below, advanced actions can be added from a built-in selection of eight or via the web. These include FTP uploads, app install automation, and sharing over AirDrop. In all cases, just drag an item from Finder or another app to one of the Dropzone icons and the action starts. The split grid is new to Dropzone 3 and improves usability, as does the simpler way to add actions, via a drop-down menu.
The Drop Bar is the real star, though, pausing drag actions, and making it simple to collect groups of items (like those from full-screen apps or shortcuts from web browsers) to then drag elsewhere. Craig Grannell
A great update to an already solid app. The new design and Drop Bar are particularly strong.
