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.

• 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.

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.

Great App

I was happy to find a replacement for FileChute (which was lost when Catalina came along). Two features that i've been using a lot: the FTP upload and Saving Text to a text file . . . thanks!

Booo Aptonic! Bad Decision on Subscription!

Dropzone 3 was a great app! IDK if this is an improvement bc I can't get past that absurd monthly subscription price. Any recurring charge would be unreasonable, but WOW! What are they thinking??? I would have happily paid for a new version of Dropzone as I did with Dropzone 3, but people don't want anymore subscriptions with montly charges. There is a limit on services someone will pay monthly for; things they need to have,and software managers like the Dropzone app aren't anywhere close to something I would consider. I wouuldn't even consider it at .99 cents a month (which is significantly less than they actually charge)! POOR business decision!!!
