Very good app. Even simple things like sticking an oft used folder makes access much easier than it being in the sidebar (have to find a folder window) or in the dock (stupid unlabelled folders!).

The airdrop utility is also much quicker than fiddling around with finder windows.
A lot of little time improvements make a good difference to the friction in using my Mac, and my level of frustration!

I like that it has a framework for people to add in functionality - looking forward to actions.

Great App! Even better than before. As more and more people make bundles for this it will get even better.

Would love to have two things:

1) Send to Evernote

2) Send to another mac on the network (e.g. Dropcopy). I own drop copy but it doesn't always complete the send. Plus it is another app running taking resources. It would be great to have this functionality in one app. Already has replaced two other apps!

Hopefully other developers will learn from Aptonic how to go from MAS apps to non. That was just too slick.

More info on how to use this app would helpful. I feel I'm just scratching the surface of this app.

Absolute 5 star app in my opinion. Works great, intuitive and I could uninstall several apps because this one combines several functions.
Typical an app that I will use many times every day.
Love it !

After a quick 5 minute look I made the purchase. I have been running the earlier version for some time now and I was delighted to version 3 today. I welcome the improved range of functionality and the smoothness of those functions. Not a developer myself, I look forward to what others do with the announced API upgrade. I am a great fan of inter-app functions and I will be especially keen to see what hooks to what as further development is undertaken. Finally, you can’t beat the introductory launch price. I am now an even bigger fan of Dropzone than I was with the earlier version.

Well reviewed by http://brettterpstra.com/2013/12/23/a-few-of-my-favorite-mac-apps-in-2013/

BUT, why can't I do 90% of this by creating my own folder of aliases to all these locations and programs, and sticking the folder in the dock (or finding a way to put it in the menu bar)? And, isn't this the whole idea of the Favorites folder?

For $15, seems steep to do a more elegant job of something I can do myself. I'm happy to be persuaded, but so for it does not make sense. Responses welcome.

Edit: I should have listed this as a comment, but did not see the menu in time. My * rating is based on the review by terpstra.

Say you want to transfer files to a server. This seems like a great way to do it. And of course, being a man of the 21st century, you don’t use passwords. You do the smart thing, you use public key authentication. Heck, the remote server, also from the 21st century, does not even accept passwords. All good, except when you fire up Dropzone and create an SCP Upload action, the app insists on your supplying that vestige of the 20th century, the password. Or else, no dropping, no zoning, nada. Apart from that though, it’s a nice app.

This is a fantastic app. It does exactly what it says it will do for me. I especially love the circles feature because you can set it up to do whatever you do the most whether it be changing your desktop wallpaper, initiating your screensaver, creating a zip file, etc. It and Alfred 2 are definitely my favorite and most used apps. This app gets 5 stars from me and I have had no issues since upgrading to Mavericks ;)
