Dropshelf gives you a handy place to put files, images, text and web links. Just drag an item to the edge of the screen, and Dropshelf slides out.

Use Dropshelf to hold your items while you drag them between different windows, tabs, full screen apps and spaces.

You can also store things in Dropshelf to keep for later. You can have multiple shelves, and they will minimize out of view when not in use.

It supports copy and paste too, so you can save your clipboard contents to Dropshelf. It is also integrated with OS X in other thoughtful, workflow-enhancing ways — check out the User Guide for some tricks and tips.


Release Notes:

- Fixed Sierra bug where all shelves would duplicate every time you turn Dropshelf off & on again.
- Text clippings dragged from Microsoft Word now drop as text clippings, instead of being erroneously converted to PDF files.

One great application of many from this developer - The best of the drag and drop utilities. I’ve tried Sticky Menu and Yoink and this is the best by far. This developer knows how to make killer utilities (see PopClick). This is one purchase you will not regret.

Version 1.2.1
Review by Jon_Zu

Great idea, but... - I was looking for an alternative to Yoink. The draw of Dropshelf was that it would let me create multiple shelves vs. Yoink’s one. But Dropshelf is buggy. When I first launched it, I got a blank welcome box that I couldn’t get rid of. I had to log out and log back in to get it to go away. Then when I got it running, it crashed after the first few uses. Two tries, two failures. I’m not giving it a third chance. If this app gets fixed, I will change my review and provide an updated rating. As it is, though, I can’t recommend this app. It simply isn’t reliable. Don’t waste your money.

Fantastic work. Thank you! - This is, by far, the most useful app i’ve downloaded on my Mac :D. I recently moved from a windows machine, and i find this app a revelation on the Mac. Thank you!
