Eternal Storms Softwaretoday released Yoink 2.0 for iOS and Yoink 3.5 for Mac, two major upgrades to the popular drag and drop-improving “shelf” app.

For those unfamiliar, Yoink acts like a convenient shelf for users to drag in files and other content, do something else (switch apps, tabs, and so on) and then easily access those items again by dragging them out of Yoink.

Version 2.0 of Yoink for iOS brings

iCloud

sync support, so items stored in Yoink are available across iOS devices logged into the same Apple account. Each device has its own “shelf” in iCloud, so all items are grouped for easy discoverability.

The different shelves are accessible through both the Yoink app and also in its extensions, users can access all items via the Today Widget, the keyboard, the file provider, and Spotlight search.

Yoink 2.0 for iOS also brings support for Handoff across iPhones,

iPad

s and Macs, so items selected on one device can be handed off to another and those files are transferred right away.

Elsewhere, Yoink now also includes support for

Siri

Shortcuts. Using Siri, users can store clipboard contents or download the link to the clipboard in Yoink, without having to switch to or activate Yoink itself.

Items can also be copied from Yoink using Siri (the most recently added image, PDF, text or link, for example), while Yoink can be opened using the virtual assistant to show a specified, synced device’s items.

In addition, Yoink for iOS has expanded support for keyboard commands, an optional Dark Mode interface, and optional smaller icons for showing more items stored in the Yoink “shelf” at once.

Meanwhile over on Yoink for Mac, the new version 3.5 update adds Handoff support between Macs and iOS devices, a clipboard history Today Widget that keeps track of your clipboard’s contents, and full compatibility with

macOS Mojave

(including Dark Mode) as well as a Finder Quick Action.

Yoink for iPad and iPhone is available on the

App Store

for the introductory price of $3.99. After the introductory week has passed, the price will change to $5.99.

Yoink for Mac is available on the

Mac App Store

for the introductory price of $4.99. After the introductory week has passed, the price will change to $7.99. A free, 15-day trial is also available on the

website

– the app requires at least OS X Lion 10.7.3, although macOS High Sierra 10.13 or later is recommended.
