Dropzone makes it faster and easier to copy and move files, open applications and share files with many different services.

Dropzone is a unique and amazing app that's like nothing you've ever used before.
We've paid fanatical attention to every detail and built an app that looks and feels like an integral part of macOS.

Dropzone ships with a powerful scripting API and with a little programming knowledge you can modify any of your actions or even create entirely new ones. This gives Dropzone unlimited extendability and utility. We're always thinking up new actions so Dropzone will become even more useful over time.

Dropzone also includes Drop Bar - Drop Bar makes it easy to stash files you know you'll need later. Just drop files on the Drop Bar icon in the grid and they will stick there until you're ready to use them.

Setup your customizable grid of actions how you want and swap in different actions as your needs change.


• Open applications, move and copy files faster than ever before.

• Shorten URLs quickly using TinyURL shortener. Just select a URL to shorten and press Ctrl+Option+Cmd+S and the shortened URL is automatically copied to the clipboard.

• AirDrop integration lets you drop files or folders from any app and share them with your other Macs over the network.

• Imgur integration lets you share images fast and get a link for pasting.

• Quickly resize and convert images between different sizes and formats.

• Upload files to Amazon S3 (Dropzone Pro feature).

• Upload files to your FTP server (Dropzone Pro feature).

• Powerful multi-tasking engine allows you to run multiple tasks at once and track the progress of each one through the in-grid task status area.

• See how tasks are progressing at a glance in the animated menu item.

• Launch Dropzone actions with the newly added keyboard shortcuts feature (Dropzone Pro feature).

• Add applications, folders or actions to your grid easily by dragging and dropping them on the Add to Grid area.

• Develop your own actions using the updated and massively improved Ruby or Python API (Dropzone Pro feature).

• Dropzone 4 now fully supports macOS Sonoma.


• Dropzone 4 provides an optional subscription. This subscription includes access to our growing library of cloud based actions, regular cloud action updates and enhancements, as well as all app updates, including major ones, provided automatically. It all includes access to all new features added in updates and unlocks Dropzone's advanced features including Amazon S3 Uploading, Google Drive Uploading, FTP/SFTP Uploading, macOS service integration and more.

• After 14 days, you'll automatically be billed 1.99USD per month (or the equivalent in your country) through an auto-renewing subscription.

• An active subscription entitles you to unlimited Dropzone 4 app updates, including both minor updates and all major new features.

Joe DeChaine ,


I use this app more than I thought I would. I find it really handy for sorting things from my download folder. However, I haven't seen much improvement. No updates, no added features, nada. For a paid app I think we should expect to see those things.

Developer Response ,

Hi Joe - Thanks for your review and feedback but this is inaccurate. There have been 44 updates since Dropzone 4 released on the Mac App Store. There was an update just last month that added a new 'Rename & Move Files' action. Drop Bar has recently received many improvements over the last few months such as the ability to split stacks, quick look stacks and add text. We also recently added Share Menu integration with macOS, improvements and fixes for macOS Ventura as well as lots of behind the scenes performance optimisations. Please feel free to email support@aptonic.com if there are specific improvements you'd like to see in future updates.

A suggestion

I understand that as a developer, you need a steady income, and I completely support the idea. It's unfair to create an app and keep releasing measure updates for free. However, $24 a year is a price you would pay for something like a password manager (I pay $24/Year for Roboform, which is one of the good ones. Many other companies charge between $1 and $4 for the same service depending on the features. Those apps use a far more complicated, highly secured backend cloud than what your app would. Add to it the ability to use those apps on multiple devices, including smartphones, tablets, computers, and even smartwatches. I don't see the real benefit of the subscription model to your application, the backend service you're providing isn't worth the price you're asking. I'm sure you've spent enough time studying this, and you have a reason for the pricing, but I don't think you've taken into consideration the aspects I've mentioned. Your subscription price shouldn't be more than you're previous selling price. $1 a month or $9.99 if paid annually.

Best wishes.

Fantastically useful and amazing customer service

I rarely rate apps, but the level of customer service I got from the developer is unparallelled.

I use this app every day and has become a necessary tool in my toolkit for my computer-heavy job. When I ran into an issue a few months ago, I contacted support, and my email was quickly answered--not with a standard form letter or FAQ link--but a developer who walked with me step by step through my issue. We debugged, troubleshot, and dichotomized the issue to a very specific issue I was having.

Where so many developers would say "submit a ticket and wait for the next update," this app's team took the time to solve the issue, with direct input from me--a user.

This app has become absolutely essential, and the pro version has become immensely powerful in streamlining my workflow, and I could not recommend it enough.

It's simple, modular, and maintained by a team that truly focuses on the user experience.
