Mega List of Apps with Support for Drag and Drop on iOS 11 [Updated]

Apps with Drag and Drop Support on iOS 11

Apple officially released iOS 11 to the public a little under 24 hours ago and by now, I’m sure it is already up and running on your iPhone. iOS 11 is a major release from Apple that brings along an updated User Interface along with a host of new features and improvements. More importantly, though, iOS 11 is a massive release for iPad and introduces some incredible and much-needed features that make the iPad a truly powerful computing device and a very viable product for most consumers.

One of the biggest features of iOS 11 on the iPad is Drag and Drop. iOS 11 gives you the ability to Drag and Drop text, images, videos, etc. with your fingers easily between two apps. Let’s take a look at some major apps that have been updated with support for the Drag and Drop feature on iOS 11.
