If we’re be­ing char­i­ta­ble, then iLove Drag Dock pays homage to the bril­liant Yoink (as op­posed to be­ing an out­right rip-off ). Yoink – re­viewed back in MF284 – makes it easy and con­ve­nient to shut­tle files, fold­ers and se­lected app con­tent be­tween des­ti­na­tions via a dis­creet tray. It’s packed with tweak­able op­tions and works bril­liantly.

In con­trast, iLove Drag Dock of­fers only a tiny sub­set of Yoink’s fea­tures: you can only trans­fer files and fold­ers, iden­ti­fy­ing marks – if you’re lucky – are re­stricted to a file type or folder icon, and you have to hover your mouse over an en­try just to iden­tify it by name.

You can at least pin items to keep them in the dock for mov­ing to mul­ti­ple des­ti­na­tions, but the lack of file pre­views and op­tions en­sure that iLove Drag Dock won’t be keep­ing Yoink au­thor Matthias Gan­srigler awake at night. Nick Peers

iLove Drag Dock is a dis­ap­point­ing al­ter­na­tive to Yoink that man­ages to be in­fe­rior in just about ev­ery way.
