Easy peasy, right? What could be easier? There’s just one problem with the tried and true drag and drop. Sometimes, usually during the drag process, I forget where the file or folder needs to be dropped.
What to do?
As it turns out, there’s a Mac app for that, a clever and inexpensive little utility that resides in the background and helps you with your indecision. Instead of dropping the aforementioned files or folders where you don’t want, or instead of navigating back to where they came from, DragonDrop gives you another option.
It’s drag and drop and then drag and drop again.
DragonDrop gives you a floating shelf where you can temporarily drag and drop whatever files and folders you have, then find where you want to drop them, then do the drag and drop again.
Big whoop, right? Isn’t that like double the effort? Wait. There’s more.
Not only is DragonDrop good for those Mac users who forget where they want to drop files after the dragging process, it’s also good for showing you the file you’re dragging (you know, just in case you forgot, because dragging files takes awhile) using QuickLook.
Take that, Finder!
What can you drag and drop and drag and drop with DragonDrop? Almost any Mac file. Files, folders, photos, text, PDFs, you name it. DragonDrop isn’t a solution looking for a problem. We’ve all grabbed some files to move here to there but forgot where the there was and had to start over again. The dual tab windows in OS X Mavericks helps to alleviate that problem, but DragonDrop works even better.
