An annoying aspect when working on a big screen is that you need to put a lot of effort into reaching every location from the monitor. It's time-consuming and requires a lot of effort, especially if you need to organize or manage multiple files on the screen. A solution for this issue comes from the Yoink program, a simple Mac application that provides you with a quick way to handle documents on your desktop.

This utility lives on your Menu Bar from where you can configure its settings according to your needs. The app will display a small window on your desktop where you can add documents by using drag-and-drop actions. You can place this window on any edge of your screen and choose its proper size. This screen is shown whenever you start dragging a file, or your mouse pointer is at the aforementioned desktop edge.

There's also an option to define a global hotkey for revealing the app's main screen on your desktop. The program works great, doesn't slow down the performance of your system and is very simple to configure.

Another important advantage is the fact that you can choose which Mac applications shouldn't trigger Yoink. Plus, this new version brings you plenty of new features, bug fixes, and improvements.

All in all, I think it's worth buying Yoink for your Mac as long as you work with a large monitor and need the app for quick file management.
