Yoink is a Mac application that comes in handy whenever you need to drag-and-drop multiple files or content from a third-party program to another window. This utility is very simple to configure and handle, lives on your Menu Bar without making use of many CPU resources, and is available in various languages.

The app adds an icon to your Menu Bar from where you can configure its settings. Furthermore, you will have access to a nicely-designed, small interface that shows your drag-and-drop items.This tiny window can be accessed whenever you start dragging a file on your screen; you can choose on which area of your desktop this Yoink menu should be found (left side up, right side top, etc.).

Another thing I like about this Mac utility is the fact that you can choose which third-party apps shouldn't trigger Yoink. Furthermore, this new version brings you many bug fixes and improvements.

In my testing, this application worked flawlessly and didn't use many CPU resources while dragging data between windows.

In conclusion, I'd say it's worth buying Yoink if you require a tool to facilitate drag-and-drop processes on your Mac. In addition, it comes with a very reasonable price.
