Dropzone overview

Dropzone makes it faster and easier to get things done. Drag a file onto the dock icon and your fully customizable grid of destinations flies smoothly out using core animation. Drop the file onto a destination and Dropzone will take care of the rest. Whether you're installing an app, uploading a file to an FTP server or sharing your photos on Flickr.

Features
  • Launch Applications - Sometimes you want to keep an application quickly available, but you don't want it taking up space in your Dock. Simply add it to your Dropzone grid, and then you can launch the app by clicking on it in Dropzones grid, or you can drag files or folders onto it.
  • Install Applications - Drag a DMG onto the Install Application destination, and Dropzone mounts the disk image, finds the application inside, copies it to your applications folder, launches it, ejects the disk image and moves it to the trash for you.
  • Flickr Upload - Drop a bunch of pictures on to the Flickr Upload destination and Dropzone uploads them for you. It can even copy the direct image URL to the clipboard so you can paste it to a friend. You can also setup multiple accounts.
  • FTP Upload - You can setup as many FTP servers as you like with Dropzone. If you hold down option while dragging, Dropzone will even zip up the files or folders for you before uploading and put the URL on the clipboard.
  • Save Text - Drop some text onto the Save Text destination, Dropzone asks you for a name, and saves it for you. Great for storing those little snippets of text that you don't want to lose.
  • Copy or Move Files - Sometimes you want to copy or move a file or folder somewhere else on your Mac. Dropzone lets you setup destinations that do this. Underneath, Dropzone uses the fast and powerful Rsync file transfer tool to do its work.
  • Zip and Email - The Zip & Email destination zips up the dragged files and adds them as a Mail attachment, all ready to send. A simple and convenient time saver.
  • Extend Dropzone - Dropzone has a powerful Ruby based API that allows you to script Dropzone to do whatever you need. Not only that, but all the code for the destinations above is open source. So you can help us make Dropzone even better!

I got this app with a black friday discount about two weeks ago. It’s awesome. So glad I bought it. Having access right in the menu bar to the things it lets you do is really useful. Kudos to the devs.

Fantastic app and is indispensable to my work flow. This allows me to send files to multiple remote sites near effortlessly via a centralized menu bar icon using sftp, email, and other protocols. There are even other actions that I have not yet begun to explore with more being added all the time. You can even create your own custom actions with Ruby or Python if needed. A recent issue caused by an Apple code deprecation was rectified quickly and I was back up and running. Can't say say enough good things about this app and its developer!
