Yoink for iPad and iPhone lets you easily and quickly store items you drag, copy or share, for later use. 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 almost anything you can drag on your iPad, for example app-content like images from websites, text snippets, web urls, eMails and documents. 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: - Action Extension: Almost any item you can share via the system-wide Share sheet, you can send directly to Yoink from there - Keyboard: Yoink has its own keyboard so that inserting items you've stored in Yoink is easy and quick, without having to launch Yoink. - Spotlight Integration Any item in Yoink can be found via Spotlight - and the search-results are draggable. - Files Integration Access Yoink's files from any app that supports iOS 11's document browser



  • Useful application - no synchronized across devices?

    By paulcrosby65
    Love it on iPad. iPhone is great too. Saves me a lot of going back and forth. I maybe missing something but it does not syncs between devices. Fix that and it’s 5 stars!
  • Very Nice

    Have found many uses for this app. Thanks
  • 5 seconds in and it’s a game changer...

    Saves me so much time having one spot to quickly file away everything I need for a project, task or quote. My iPad just became more useful than my Surface. I need this everywhere. Great job.
  • Crashes upon opening - Update

    By taquito
    Every time I open the app it crashes. It is unusable for me. Update: contacted the app developer who was very responsive and helpful. I was able to resolve the issue.
  • Very useful app 😊👍🏻

    I wasn’t really sure when I bought this app if I was going to like it or not but I find it something that I use every day now. Go to YouTube and search for yoink app and filter it by most recent and you will find video tutorials on how to use this application. Very useful app. i use it on my iphone, ipad and Mac. By the way if you sel David Rowen text and then tap the pop up and tap to the right until you select share you can add it to yoink. I had to do that today when I had a bunch of separate text messages so I just tapped and held on the text message select more then I tap the arrow selective the text and copied it to this app and I did that many times and then I just use the yoink keyboard to quickly add this to an email. Also you can tap the share button on a webpage and save it to this app. Select a link to a download. Photos from the photos app. Save from the clipboard. The clipboard basically is the place where the information goes when you select copy.
  • I love it!

    By FletcherGull
    It’s a really amazing app! I use it on all my devices, from iPhone to iPad to Mac... It’s very simple and easy to use, yet very powerful in the same time! I’d love Having a dark mode on iOS at least since I think the app is too bright compared to all the other apps I use that already have a real black/dark mode version... And I don’t know, but a selective iCloud content sync between the devices contents, might appeal to some people... (I’m personally very fine without it)... all in all, yoink is the answer to all my prayers! Thumbs up to the dev, who obviously worked hard on the very efficient UI And UX! <3
  • Finally!

    Update: still using Yoink on my iPhone, iPad Pro and iMac almost daily. Still an indispensable part of my workflow! Two things i’m wishing for in the future are iCloud sync and GIFv support so i can see the previews in Yoink. Original review: I’ve been using Yoink on my Mac for what seems like forever. It’s an essential part of my workflow and I’m really excited to have it on my iPad Pro now! Using it as a slide-over app to drag and drop items to and from is almost exactly like the desktop experience and it’s invaluable for making me more productive on my iPad. One step closer to replacing a laptop! EDIT: Thank you for your response, Matt! I’m looking forward to your future updates ☺️
  • Great App

    By capitanpano
    But it's urgently missing to be able to be synced across iOS devices...

    Won’t spend time going over what the dev has already written in description. Yoink is a superb clipboard manager that rules them all. It excels in its user friendly approach and the aha moments of what the app can actually do. Adding content is very smooth through the sharesheet. Content added can be stored into stacks (folders) and I use this to store youtube playlists without login to youtube. Pulling video files from the web and watching them on your iPhone is huge (experiment with this one to get the full idea of what the dev has created for the user). The keyboard feature is a plus as sharing images, videos, etc with friends is simplified. Beyond the app, my questions to the dev are always answered, keeping in mind that it’s just one developer having to respond to the whole world (will be mindful next time I ask a question). Recommending this app to all. The time spent creating it was probably not not equal to the price. Go get it guys ;) To Matt, kudos...your app made it into Africa all the way from Austria! #Wowza
  • Needs Cloud Sync

    By cscwallace
    I'm using a competitor that doesn't look as nice but syncs between devices. I'll most likely switch back if sync is ever added to Yoink
