Yoink for iPad and iPhone lets you easily and quickly store items you drag, copy, share or download for later use.

This way, you can collect items in a central place without having to constantly move back and forth between your source- and destination applications.
The app accepts virtually any file type, for example app-content like images from websites, text snippets, web urls, eMails and documents - no matter if you drag, copy, share or download them.

Here's what users say about Yoink:
"The best shelf app on iOS" - Igloouk, UK App Store
"Most useful app in the iOS store. What a gem." - noway170, Austrian App Store
"A godsend. Get this. Now." - mr chairboy, US App Store

As a Slide-Over or Side-by-Side app on iPad, Yoink is always ready for you to drag something to it, no matter what app you're in. Just slide Yoink into view and conclude your drag operation.
On iPhone, use Yoink's Share extension, or copy-paste items into Yoink.
Items are stored in Yoink for later use, featuring rich previews for easy identification and full previews for most file types.
Drags containing multiple items are combined into a Stack.

Yoink comes with deep system integration:
- iCloud Sync
Synchronize Yoink's items across your devices using iCloud

- Handoff
Transfer files between iPhones, iPads and Macs (separate Mac Yoink app required) using Handoff

- Action/Share Extension
Almost any item you can share via the system-wide Share sheet, you can send directly to Yoink from there

- Keyboard
Yoink has its own keyboard so that inserting items you've stored in Yoink is easy and quick, without having to launch Yoink.

- Spotlight Integration
Any item in Yoink can be found via Spotlight - and the search-results are draggable.

- Today Widget
Access Yoink's items and save the contents from your clipboard in Yoink from Notification Center

- Shortcuts / Siri Suggestions
Yoink offers you Siri Shortcuts and Suggestions so you can automate processes, like adding items from the clipboard to Yoink, or copying items from Yoink, as well as starting downloads in Yoink.

- Files Integration
Access Yoink's files from any app that supports iOS 11's document browser

Obowiązkowa aplikacja dla iOS11

Zdecydowanie niezbędna aplikacja w iOS11. Pozwala naprawdę w wygodny sposób przerzucać dane z jednej aplikacji do drugiej lub robić za tymczasowy schowek.
