Dropover overview

Dropover is a utility that makes it easier to manage and move content between folders, applications, windows and workspaces using Drag and Drop. Shake your cursor and drop whatever you are dragging into the shelf. This shelf floats on top of all your other windows so you can navigate stress-free to your destination folder or program. It works with any draggable content; files, folders, text snippets and even images from a website

Here's what you can do with Dropover:
  • Activate it using a shake gesture, menubar or global shortcut
  • Create multiple shelves or append files to an existing shelf. Then move all files at once to your destination
  • Upload dragged files to iCloud or Dropbox and directly get a shareable link copied to your clipboard. All in one click, right from Dropover's shelf
  • Reveal dragged content in Finder or directly share it using Messages, Mail or Airdrop
  • Manage and list individual files along with information such as name and file size. Preview them using Quick Look, reveal them in Finder or quickly share them
  • Drag individual files to destination
  • Remove individual files if you've dragged them by accident
  • Clear and familiar user interface. Satisfying Drag and Drop experience

What’s new in version 4.6.0

Updated on Jun 17 2022

Shelf action keyboard shortcuts

This version adds support to perform actions in the shelf using keyboard shortcuts. They can be invoked when the cursor is hovering above the shelf. The actions include closing the shelf, clearing the content, invoking Quick Look, opening actions menu, copying & pasting content and docking the shelf.

Additionally, Dropover 4.6.0 brings the following updates:
  • Added option to distinguish shelves by color. When enabled, each shelf will show an unique color label to easier identify shelves. To enable this functionality, select the "Distinguish shelves by color" option in the Advanced tab of Dropover's preferences screen.
  • The shelf now shows a drag indicator to signal when it's active. This serves as a cue that the shelf is draggable but also hints when keyboard shortcuts can be invoked.
  • Improvement: Double click events are now only invoked when double-clicking the actual content in the shelf
  • Added option to install "Add to Dropover" workflow for Alfred. This extension can be installed from the Advanced tab in Dropover's preferences screen.

I previously used Yoink, but Dropover has one major advantage. Shaking a file with the mouse (or trackpad) brings the shelf into view just where it is needed - close to the file itself. You can then move the shelf to where you need the file to be dropped. Plus the developer is continuing to add new features.

Love this app, the mouse shake is intuitive and puts the shelf anywhere on the screen and I like the fact you can create separate shelves.

Seems like this is a similar idea to the more established Yoink. I love Yoink, and the developer is fantastic. But I'm more than happy to replace an app on my Mac if I finder a better or more affordable similar app. This app is most decidedly not Yoink. What prevents me from even trying this software is the lack of information on the website (what's in the free version vs what I get for the $4 in-app-purchase), and the fact that the marketing of the app on the website clearly shows that 90% of what this app does can be done with the Finder, right out of the box. In other words, the app doesn't actually do much.

The Shaking cursor idea is a clever one.
