Yoink 3.0.2

File trans­fers made sim­ple

Mac Format - - RATED - De­vel­oper Eter­nal Storms, eternalstorms.at OS X 10.7.3 or later

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

Yoink pro­vides an ef­fec­tive way of trans­fer­ring your con­tent be­tween mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions.
