If you’re a Mac user who’s old enough to remember when drag and drop was something special, then you’ll appreciate the latest twist to the time honored way to move files on a Mac.
Drag and drop. How much easier could it be to move a file or folders of files from here to there? Easier. Seriously. Easier.
Here’s what happens. Sometimes we click to grab files or folders to move (or, option-click to copy) and half way through the drag forget where we want to drop. After a few decades of Mac dragging and dropping, I still do that.
DragonDrop is a background utility that lets you grab and drag files or folders and, right in the middle of the movement, set them down until you figure out (or remember) where they get dropped.
When you begin the drag and drop process, DragonDrop wraps a border around the files (when you ‘shake’ the pointer) so you can set it down before dropping it to the final destination.
And DragonDrop doesn’t care much about what you drag or drop. Files, folders of files, photos, images, web pages, whatever.
What makes me truly believe DragonDrop can be useful and fills an obvious need, is the clever way it just works with your normal drag and drop flow.
Even better, DragonDrop is a Mac App Store app so installation and updates are a mere click away, but the developer also offers a trial version so you can see what it does without spending money first.
It’s not that it’s difficult to drag and drop files to any destination via the Mac’s Finder. But DragonDrop gives you that little extra bit of room; an option to set the files down, then resume the drop portion once you know where files should go.
