Yoink is a program for Mac that offers you a very simple and efficient way to drag-and-drop files between windows. This utility comes as an alternative to dragging documents from one window to another while holding on to the left button of your mouse.

The application might prove to be of good use when you wish to drag-and-drop a file from a fullscreen window to the main screen of a third-party tool. Yoink allows you to add the files you need to drag to its own main window; once you're on the destination screen, you simply drag-and-drop the documents from Yoink's interface.

I like the fact that you can customize the appearance of the program's main window (select list of items size), choose its position on your desktop, and define a global hotkey for revealing the items list (files to be drag-and-dropped).

Another advantage is that you can select which applications should automatically trigger Yoink once you start dragging files on your desktop.

Cutting a long story short, Yoink is a helpful program that comes in handy to Mac users who need to easily drag-and-drop files on their screens. The app is very easy to handle, uses a small amount of CPU resources, and comes with a fair cost.
