Yoink for iPad and iPhone lets you easily and quickly store items you drag, copy or share, for later use. This way, you can collect items in a central place without having to constantly move back and forth between your source- and destination applications. The app accepts almost anything you can drag on your iPad, for example app-content like images from websites, text snippets, web urls, eMails and documents. 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. 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. Yoink comes with deep system integration: - iCloud Sync Synchronize Yoink's items across your devices using iCloud - Handoff Transfer files between iPhones, iPads and Macs (separate Mac Yoink app required) using Handoff - Action/Share Extension Almost any item you can share via the system-wide Share sheet, you can send directly to Yoink from there - Keyboard Yoink has its own keyboard so that inserting items you've stored in Yoink is easy and quick, without having to launch Yoink. - Spotlight Integration Any item in Yoink can be found via Spotlight - and the search-results are draggable. - Today Widget Access Yoink's items and save the contents from your clipboard in Yoink from Notification Center - Shortcuts / Siri Suggestions Yoink offers you Siri Shortcuts and Suggestions so you can automate processes, like adding items from the clipboard to Yoink, or copying items from Yoink, as well as starting downloads in Yoink. - Files Integration Access Yoink's files from any app that supports iOS 11's document browser



  • It’s a bucket

    ... and you can pour a little here and there. I am 100% iPhone, no Mac. This app works seamlessly with the following apps, which constitute my primary workflow, Evernote, Drop Box, and Spark email client. I moved Yoink to the top/front of the helper apps, so it is always up front. I do like it when Yoink asks you if you want to add a clipboard snippet. At this point, I see nothing to dislike about this app. ===older review=== Looking for tighter integration in iOS but, works quite well. A welcome and necessary addition to my workflow.
  • My favorite shelf app

    By Bram NYC
    Since the 2.0 update with iCloud sync, Yoink has quickly become one of my most used apps. I often find myself wanting to share items between iPads and my iPhone. Yoink is incredible. Once sync is extended to the Mac, you can’t imagine a better shelf!
  • Useful information from the developer (NOT ME)

    - From Yoink (iOS) to Yoink (Mac) Launch Yoink on your iOS device. Either make a selection of the files you’d like to transfer or don’t select any files. On the Mac, in the Dock, next to the Finder icon, you should see Yoink’s icon with a little iOS device on top of it. Click it. Now the Handoff process will start - From Yoink (Mac) to Yoink (iOS) Select the files you’d like to transfer in Yoink on Mac If your iOS device is an iPad, on the right side of your Dock, Yoink’s icon should appear with a little Mac icon on top of it. Tap it and the Handoff process will start. If your iOS device is an iPhone X, swipe up from the very bottom to show the app switcher. There’s a black bar at the bottom saying something like “Yoink - from ” - tap it. If your iOS device is an iPhone with a home button, click the home button twice to show the app switcher. There’s a black bar at the bottom saying something like “Yoink - from ” - tap it. Please let me know if that worked for you.
  • Edit. Sync and app don’t work on iOS 12

    By Thejdoggy
    Had minor issue that it would not sync with iPad. Restarted both devices and all is good. Edit. Thought it was ok but now it won’t sync and deletes items that have been sync. Emailed support twice no answers. Or response. In theory it would be great but unusable
  • Finally the iCloud sync came but...

    By Wildog!
    The libraries are isolated among devices and it's trivial to switch between libraries. I just want a universal library for iCloud sync.
  • A excellent useful App

    By paulpmcmahon
    It's exciting to see such a great update to an App that was off to a good start with potential for the future that you can see. Ability to create folders is a bit of a wish and a bit of eye candy but based on the quick reply to a URL scheme question I suspect the developer is going to be active. It's darn close to being a clipboard also that's it was great to see the developer really know his own app and have an idea what people want that more integration was added. Finally I would say the 2.99 is close to if not already a bargain. Thanks for the URL schemes. Continued great job
  • Yoink for the win!

    By FletcherGull
    Since the first day it was released on iOS I loved Yoink! It offered so many things I crucially needed from my app! It did lack a few features, like iCloud syncing, like dark mode, like the ability to save a file to yoink directly in workflow which now became iOS 12’s shortcuts! And then, the new update came! Omg! iCloud syncing was here, and the amount of customizability it offered in settings, from the amount of files to sync, to the limit of the size of the files to sync, to the ability to pick if syncing could happen on WiFi or even cellular data and so many options! It’s awesome! Dark mode! TRUE BLACK! Lovely! The yoink Keyboard! The iOS 12 shortcuts support, which added a copy clipboard to yoink action along with many other useful shortcuts is the answer to all my prayers! Devs, I don’t know if you will read this, because frankly by the update you released, you seem to be working day and night! But still, I’m going to tell you: HUGE THANK YOU! You rock, awesome people!!!
  • highly useful, seamless integration with other apps

    By squeezedude
    Finding a lot of opportunities to place something on the Yoink "shelf", e.g. pdf's, jpg's, Word docs. It really streamlines the process of attaching a wide range of files to an email. The drag-and-drop simplicity makes it much more convenient than other methods of saving and attaching the file types mentioned above. Highly recommended.
  • Go to app.

    By Real guy review
    One of the best apps for the Iphone
  • Useful application - no synchronized across devices?

    By paulcrosby65
    Love it on iPad. iPhone is great too. Saves me a lot of going back and forth. I maybe missing something but it does not syncs between devices. Fix that and it’s 5 stars!
