Should be Part of OSX!

It’s an incredibly handy little tool, and something that honestly should be bought by Apple and integrated into OSX, it’s that useful and intuitive. The newest version includes an optional clipboard history tool, which you can only turn on by turning on the sidebar widget, which is awkward if you just want to use the top file menu. Other issue with the clipboard feature is that it only pastes into Yoink and then you have to drag whatever it is out of Yoink, when usually all you want is for the saved clipboard item to go active so you can paste it somewhere. But still, this is a great no-brainer addition to OSX, the clipboard feature just isn’t very smooth.

Hi ImranZ,
Thank you for your feedback on Yoink.
You can access the clipboard history through Yoink's menubar icon, which you can activate in its preferences.
With warm regards,

one word: convenience!

I came to know about Yoink through the many “essential apps for mac” type articles. It looked nifty, but did I really need it was my initial thought.
Although I have been familiar with macOS and have recommended and help other people purchase and use Macs, I myself was a Windows user till a couple of years back. After switching, just the multitouch trackpad on macbooks made it much much easier to drag and drop things. So the value of Yoink was not really as apparant to me.
That is untill I used it. Its a no brainer. The softare equivalent of “can you hold this please, while I sort this other thing out”.
These kind of apps are what makes me love macOS and its developer community so much.

One exciting tool!!!

So much has been said about this app in other reviews. What I can say is that this 70 year old found it amazing! Two features in paricular, 1) Unlike a competitor on this site Yoink savs sace when you put something in it and you can open the PDF for example with out opening the folder in the Finder and then double clicing on the file. In Yoink when you click on the item in Yoink the document opens directly in its native app, or in the case of a PDF if you click on the little eye on the Yoink menubar the PDF will open with in Yoink! Do you get the idea that this app is just fine? If you do it is time for you to buy it right now!!!
