On average, Mac users buy and use more utility apps than their Windows toting brethren because, well, suffice it to say we have discriminating tastes, a little more education, and more disposable income. So, if the Mac is all that and more, what do we need with a DragQueen?
You Can Call Me Regis
In most cultures it’s the king who reigns over the queen, right? So, why isn’t DragQueen called DragKing? It’s a Mac utility which lets you drag and drop files onto a drop zone; files which can be stored and retrieved later.
The drop zone is an area along the side of the Mac’s screen. Grab a file, drop it onto the zone and that’s where it stays until you’re ready to move it else where. I think of DragQueen as a floating but open folder which stores items until they’re needed later.
The drop zone collects images, text clippings, PDFs, and other Mac files. DragQueen works automatically, too. From the Finder or the Desktop, click to grab a file and begin moving it to the side of the Mac’s screen. DragQueen shows up on the screen automatically (it can also be set to stay on top of other app windows; always available).
Another handy feature is the ability of DragQueen to calculate total file sizes. Because the drop zone can float on top of other windows it’s easy to use it from within any open Mac app. Think of it as Finder meets Clipboard and begat a floating catch all folder. That’s about what it is.
DragQueen is simple to setup and use and the price cannot be beat. It’s free.
