Aptonic’s Dropzone 3 ($10) is a pretty handy tool if you’re a Mac power-user who is constantly dragging and dropping files around your Mac and uploading things to online social media and sharing services. The app sits up in your menu bar and pops up with a drop target each time you pick up a file and move it somewhere, making it super easy to copy and move files into folders or applications, or upload and share them to services like Twitter, Facebook, or your own FTP server. Dropzone 3 also adds a new Drop Bar feature that lets you stack up files for later by dropping them on the Drop Zone target where they’ll stay until you either drop them into a Dropzone action, into a Finder folder, or into another app.
You can share files via Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, Messages, or Mail, and Airdrop integration lets you quickly send files to other Macs or iOS devices on your network. There’s also FTP and Amazon S3 actions that let you not only upload files to your own server or cloud storage, but place a link right into your clipboard for easy sharing — especially great for users who’d rather keep shared files hosted on their own server than a cloud storage provider. Dropzone also has a powerful scripting API, so if you’re an advanced user, you can modify existing actions or build entirely new ones in Ruby or Python.
