The Shelf allows you to import, via drop or copy, data into it to hold until it is needed later. The Shelf can hold many types of data including:
- Map Locations
- Emails
- Images
- URLs with rich previews
- Links to apps
- Attributed Text
- Plain Text

When required the data can be exported, via drag, copy or the iOS share sheet, to wherever you need it. The Shelf also allows alternate representations of the data to be exported, e.g. the URL of an image, or the text representation of a URL.

Great Idea

This app is begging to be grown but it looks like by what I read that this is a one man band app and the amount of subscribers needed to put forth more features looks way to formidable as so far only one subscriber is listed and that is me.
He needs 199 more just to do one round of upgrades.
Hopefully it either takes off or gets sold.

This is perfect for me. I have to look up multiple part #s in a pdf then Enter them in a remote app which would timeout if I wasn’t fast enough and I would lose everything I had already entered. Now I can put them all on shelf when done go to the remote app and paste the in place. NO TIMEOUTS! Really works great for my application.

Great Idea, Poor Implementation

While I love the idea of The Shelf, I have not found it to be practically useful. Yes, you can drag thing onto it (i.e. a PDF), and you can open the PDF as well. What you can’t do is put that PDF in most places (in my case, it would not be dragged into PDF Expert, OneNote, and several others.

I had hoped to use The Shelf as a “holding area” for PDFs I was working from (taking notes) and the to move the PDF over to the final storage area for long term storage (ie OneNote.

Alas, this does not work AND THE EXPORT options are meager at beat, and greatly truncated vs other apps I use (for example, many of my apps are not even listed as options - such as OneNote or PDF Expert).

Like I said- great idea, lousy implementation. For now, I advise that you look elsewhere. I will update IF this app is ever updated and functions as expected...
