Gladys overview

Gladys is a drag-and-drop shelf that holds things you want to set aside, such as links, text snippets, map locations, contacts, images, photos, emails, messages and much more (even if the application that the information came from is removed).

It works with any applications that support drag-and-drop, and helps keep you focused by letting you quickly set something aside, without having to consider where it needs to be dropped, or having to constantly switch between apps.

  • A completely native Mac app, using standard key combinations such as copy and paste, Quicklook, Spotlight, Handoff, service integrations and a share extension for apps that don't support drag & drop.
  • Quickly search for items inside the app or via Spotlight.
  • Annotate items with notes, custom titles, and tag items with labels that allow you to easily categorise, browse, and sort your collection.
  • Turn on automatic iCloud syncing to sync your data with other Macs and iOS devices running Gladys. Use handoff to quickly locate and open items that you're viewing between devices.
  • Ideal for bookmarking between apps: For example you can quickly return to dropped email items by selecting 'Open' in their info view, or quickly share links between different browsers.
  • Advanced users can import/export/merge collection archives, as well as export items in a ZIP file for sharing, download items pointed to by web links, and even archive web pages.
  • Experienced users can get details on dropped items and extract or modify specific data components (e.g. extract the URL of an image link, instead of the whole item, add a new image, or edit the title).
  • Technical users can reveal the raw binary "blob" in Finder to access the raw bytes of whatever data was dragged in for further processing.
  • Contains no analytics, ratings prompts, or noise.
  • Gladys is free for casual use (up to 10 simultaneous items). Power users with larger libraries can expand Gladys to hold unlimited items with a 99 cent in-app-purchase.

Mentioned only at the very bottom of the MAS description (and consequently the MU description) is one incredibly reasonable in-app purchase option: up to 10 items can be stored free; for 99 cents (US) that expands to unlimited. Well worth your support if you are like me, someone who is often temporarily unorganized but can eventually get everything put in its place. :)

I like it. Very clever on how it parses that data so that I can choose to share everything saved or just a piece.
