This way, you can collect items in a central place without having to constantly move back and forth between your source- and destination applications.
The app accepts virtually any file type, for example app-content like images from websites, text snippets, web urls, eMails and documents – no matter if you drag, copy, share or download them.
Here’s what users say about Yoink:
“The best shelf app on iOS” – Igloouk, UK App Store

As a Slide-Over or Side-by-Side app on iPad, Yoink is always ready for you to drag something to it, no matter what app you’re in. Just slide Yoink into view and conclude your drag operation.
On iPhone, use Yoink’s Share extension, or copy-paste items into Yoink.
Items are stored in Yoink for later use, featuring rich previews for easy identification and full previews for most file types.
Drags containing multiple items are combined into a Stack.
Yoink comes with deep system integration:

Transfer files between iPhones, iPads and Macs (separate Mac Yoink app required) using Handoff
