Yoink helps by making drag-and-drop between Spaces or full-screen apps easier.

Every time you start dragging a file, Yoink fades in a tiny window on the left edge of your screen so you can drag files to it. This frees up your mouse so you can comfortably navigate to the destination of the drop and resume the drag from Yoink's window.

Nice up but after mavericks, draging and droping files/folders from one place to other is just copying them not move them any more. This is so annoying for me.

I often shy away form "gadgets" these days.. then I decided to give this a try.. thinking it would end up in the trash 5mn later.. Hell no.. this is soooo smart and made my life much easier all week. And the price is a bargain considering how practical this is. Hope the dev will keep this thing up to date, I'm addicted!

This app is incredibly useful, especially now that it recognizes drags from Dock stacks. I use it multiple times every day when I am moving files around on my retina MacBook Pro. It is even more useful when you only use a single screen/monitor.

Not only can I not recommend this app highly enough, the developer has been very response to inquiries and requests.

It's a Shelf!

Something Apple has steadfastly refused to supply since ever.

Used to be various Shelf apps - and yes, Pathfinder has one, it's so damn elementary. And since Lion farked with drag and drop, needed more than ever.

No updates on this app for months. Reports of incompatibilities with recent versions of Lion. No support for groups of files.

I could really use a stand alone app like the Drop Stack in Path Finder, but I don't think Yoink is it (so far).

I like EternalStorms and Yoink is decent enough. Trouble is XShelf is free and uses half the resources (not all that much, true - 12 v 24 MB RAM and a dinky 0.1 % CPU).

About the only things I can see it does better is the shelf appears as soon as the drag begins. Some might like but it's unnecessary unless you are indeed going to use it. If the resolving aliases works out that would be another benefit.

Kudos to EternalStorms for the trial! Might even buy (only $3) just to support developer of GimmeSomeTune.

The trouble with making utilities like this one available only through the Apple Store is that it takes away the Try Before You By option. If I could test this, I might really like it. Or not. But I'm not going to get in the habit of paying in advance for products I MIGHT like. Sorry, Mister Developer, but this is not a way in which I care to do business.
