My take on Yoink
I don’t have an iPad I use regularly, so I can’t comment on the iOS version of the app. But I’ve used the macOS version of Yoink for years on various Macs.
When I had an iMac 27″ as my main workhorse, I only occasionally used Yoink because I had the screen real estate that afforded me the ability to have multiple apps open and visible on
Now the I’ve upgraded to a 2018 MacBook Pro 15″ as my only Mac, combined with the fact that I tend to work in Full-Screen mode for any app that supports it, an app like Yoink is essential to maintaining productivity and sanity.
I use Yoink constantly for grabbing PDFs from multiple folders in the Finder and adding them to an email I’m composing for sending later. I also use it to collect a bunch of logos and images from various folders to place into an InDesign document.
Along with Default Folder, Yoink has become one of my “essential” apps that I install immediately on any new Mac I work on.
If you think you might want to take advantage of the “storage shelf” that Yoink for Mac provides, there is a demo version available.
