DragonDrop improves drag-and-drop support for your Mac.

Dragging and dropping is a great way to get stuff done on your Mac, but DragonDrop makes it even better. DragonDrop lets you set down what you're dragging, leaving you free to find your destination without worrying about keeping the mouse button held down.

Drag files, folders, photos, text, and even entire Web pages. DragonDrop can handle just about anything you throw at it.

What's New

Version 1.4.1:


  • Decreased likelihood of false-positive activations when using Microsoft Word, iTunes, and BBEdit.

It freezes when more than one file is dropped into it. I couldn't even see the file names after I had dropped them to cross-check. The product is okayish at best. I'm not sure if I'm using the updated app or some old junk! I prefer Yoink! which is much better in my opinion.

- I own this app. And others...

- Just buy it, as fraganiol tells you to instead of exploring competitors with features people need.

- Thinking is for small minded folks like myself so just BUY IT!! - Don't think or expect more ever... that's why we have the mac app store and crap developer's robbing at will with bs products. This not one, but you know what I mean.

You all are pretty funny. I have never debated a user's review or experience as that is very subjective, individual perception based on needs and so on.

Sorry for pointing out the lack of updates and features like multiple shelf's or files handled one at a time, all together or just left to add them to move as you find them. Valid points I thought so my gripe of "don't just buy it" really is too much for you to do, thinking hurts and only us small people do it so I never knew how this was taken so personally.

@dragondrop fam - get married already!

This little app is wonderfull. Very convenient, it does it's thing and it stays out of your way. I agree with the "Fraganiol" reviewer, it doesn't need anything else. Btw those replies to Fraganiol are hilarious.

I. m. h. o., Fraganiol wins and Fishscale loses (and by no small margin). And off to Borsalino for recognizing this. Reading stuff like this, one is sadly reminded that there are plenty of small people in the world.

Does what it says it does and it does it well. Just get it!

I wouldn't just get it... Sorry. It is a nice app and seems like it could come in handy but it has a couple of deal breaking features missing. For one, you can't use it as a quick "dropbox." What I mean by this is that the app can't handle "holding" more than one item at a time. Yes, if you select 6 items at once and invoke dragondrop it can hold all 6 items, but if you want to add 2 items from folder A, then 2 items from folder B and all the files are being organized into folder C. Those first 2 files from folder A are overwritten when you drag the items from B onto the app. Secondly, there is no selective persistence. You can't drag one item of a group off dragondrop into a select folder and then move another item somewhere else, to a different folder. Everything is grouped together and the app can really only handle one "drop" at a time... whether it is one file or multiple files and they are all treated the same. Besides the couple things I mentioned above it seems nice if your needs are simple and you use the mouse a lot for moving items around. With a bit of work it could be amazing... multiple drop pads would be another feature that could be used if the dev's don't want to make the one drop space more advanced. Check it out, fortunately it is trialware.


This is a reply to the "Fishscale" reply below:
You say "it has a couple of deal breaking features missing", so if they're missing you're clear to buy it right? Boy do we love to listen to (/read) ourselves talk! Even if we can't actually write...
This little app is as close to perfect as can be: it does one thing and it does simply, cleanly and quick! That alone is a giant accomplishment in the software world! What this Fishguy is talking about is no more no less than a New Finder Window! Which has long been a staple feature of the Mac Os; A Folder! You know the kind where you can store whatever A, B all the way to Z and back and then do all the "selective persistence-ing" you want. It "can only handle one drop at a time"? That's the whole point! That is why I, and all kinds of other sentient beings purchase it. Otherwise it woulda been called DragsnDrops, and it would have been useless since its sole purpose would be to replicate what you can already call with a very simple Command-N.
Your "needs are simple" Mr FischCake, they're called Macs for Dummies! "seems nice if your needs are simple"?? Tout your own horn will you? Taking this reply apart is/would be annoying at best. This reply is the work of careless individual who has a, no respect for an honest developer's work and b, way too much time on their hands. I stand by what I said about DragonDrop: it does what it says and it does it well.
As to FishGump: Go on and get another chocolate!


Fraganiol, while it is a nice app, Fishscale's comments about its limitations are valid. There was no need for you to be insulting (or insulted, apparently) about it.


Wow, I have no idea why you were offended. I simply offered some missing features that other similar apps, i.e. Yoink have. The app is nicer than Yoink but lacks functionality that could probably make it superb.

I stated many times the app is nice and does what it says, pretty well and just want to encourage the dev, not disrespect, him/her so they can think about improving it and keep members at MU informed of shortcoming instead of encouraging them to "Just get it!"

What did I say that offended you, the developer, or users of the app? All the huffing and puffing about it being a good app if your "needs are simple," really? Please learn to read/interpret reviews properly before replying with such negative comments, especially personal attack comments.
