Dropzone 3for Mac



An alternate way to use your Mac

Dropzone 3 upgrades the way you access and move files on your Mac. The Drop Bar provides a handy location where you can place your most commonly used files, or temporarily stores data that you need to come back to later.

Simplify your processes

Dropzone is the utility feature you didn’t know you needed; anyone using a Mac on a daily basis can benefit from this application.

This application turns 14 clicks into 2 or 3. Whether your opening several images to preview, moving a document stored deep in your files to a new location, or uploading documents to Google Drive, you no longer have to click through your Mac’s many menus to open and relocate your files. You can easily drag and drop them to different shortcut icons all displayed in a grid that drops down from your menu bar.

The Dropzone interface is clear and easy to use. It blends seamlessly with the Mac OS look and feel, making it an intuitive piece of kit that you can learn to use in a matter of minutes. The trick to getting the most out of this tool, though, is the Actions.

If someone can script the code, then the action is possible. It comes with several time-saving Actions already installed, including adding pictures to Flickr or sending a message. If there is a task you perform frequently, you can streamline it by adding it to Dropzone.

As well as working with Apple’s messaging app, the program also integrates with other Mac services such as Notification Center and Airdrop, it doesn’t completely replace the system, but it does make everything smoother. If you can’t find the action you want, you’ll need to go online to install it manually. It isn’t too difficult, but more default actions would be better.

Where can you run this program?

Dropzone 3 requires Mac OS 10.9 and above.

Is there a better alternative?

No. Dropzone 3 has few rivals, making this a good option to try. The only program that comes close to the utility and functionality is Alfred 3, which also offers custom actions and shortcuts.

Our take

The application is easy to use, has a great range of time-saving functions, and has the potential for expansion. Altogether, it is a very powerful tool for completing any task on your Mac.
