Yoink for iOS lets you easily and quickly store items you drag, copy, share or download for later use on iPhone and iPad. This is a shelf app, a souped-up clipboard, a temporary spot to park files, snippets, images, URLs and more content. It allows you to collate files and content from disparate sources, collect items in a central place without having to constantly move back and forth between your source- and destiatent like images from websites, text snippets, web urls, eMails and documents – no matter if you drag, copy, share or download them.

Items are stored in Yoink for later use, featuring rich previews for easy identification and full previews for most file types. Drags containing multiple items are combined into a Stack.

As a Slide-Over or Side-by-Side app on iPad, Yoink is always ready for you to drag something to it, no matter what app you’re in. Just slide Yoink into view and conclude your drag operation.

On iPhone, use Yoink’s Share extension, or copy-paste items into Yoink.
