Yoink 2.0 for Mac OS X now accepts content from apps


Eternal Storms Software, has released Yoink 2.0 for Mac OS X 10.7 (“Lion”), an update of the application provides a small window to simplify dragging files between spaces, fullscreen apps or just between Finder windows. The software now accepts content from applications, like images from websites, text from text documents and more.

Also now if several files are dropped onto Yoink in one drag, The software (optionally) combines them to one item to make dragging them all out at once easier

Yoink’s window can now be shown with a hotkey (by default, F5) to offer a way to drag files from the Dock’s Stacks, iTunes and other applications that don’t trigger Yoink for technical reasons With version 2.0, there are more positions for Yoink’s window.

Dragging and dropping files in Lion, especially between different spaces and more so between or to fullscreen applications, can be very cumbersome, so Yoink was created to help, according to the folks at Eternal Storms. The application fades in a small window every time the user starts dragging a file so they can drop it there.

Then they can switch to the space, fullscreen app or even the Finder window with the mouse and then re-start the drag from Yoink’s window. Yoink’s window, by default, sticks to the left edge of the display, but can also be sent to the right side.

Yoink is exclusively available on the Mac App Store for US$2.99 and requires Lion. A free 15-day trial is available at the product website (
