File transfers made simple
Transferring files from one place to another can be tricky. Yoink simplifies the process by providing a halfway house: a tray that slides out from the left-hand side of the screen for you to dump files, folders and selected app content (such as Evernote notes) into. You then navigate to your destination – another folder, app or even Space – and then drag your item from the tray into it.
The simplified file transfer process is impressive enough, but Yoink goes further. You can store multiple entries in the tray at once and lock individual items so they remain in the tray for future use. One gripe is the built-in file preview, which currently doesn’t work with certain types (iWork and Office among others) in Yosemite, but this is the only blemish on a program that otherwise absolutely delivers in spades. Spend five minutes with Yoink and you’ll wonder how you ever did without it. Nick Peers
