Droplr for Mac 4.2

Droplr for Mac 4.2

Late last month, Droplr — the simply fantastic sharing tool for Mac, was updated to version 4.2. With this release, Droplr for Mac has been fully updated for OS X Yosemite and also introduces a bunch of nifty features that make Droplr one of, if not the best quick sharing tool available for Mac.

The OS X Yosemite specific features introduced in this release are support for Yosemite’s dark mode and a system-wide sharing extension, that lets you quickly share any file, folder or URL from your Mac. Clicking on the menubar app also now displays your most commonly used sharing actions.

The other major features included in this release are the ability to use your Mac’s built-in microphone to record audio for your screencasts and share the video quickly using Droplr. Additionally, you can even upload and share your recording as an animated GIF file. If you like sharing reaction GIFs, you can create your own reaction GIF using Droplr and your Mac’s iSight camera. Version 4.2 also instantly creates links while the file is being uploaded instead of waiting for the file to finish uploading and then giving you a link. This seems like a small change, but saves you plenty of time as by the time you’ve pasted the link in a tweet, the file is uploaded and ready to be viewed by your followers. If anyone visits the link before the file has finished uploading, they see a real-time progress indicator on the page.

Droplr has been my favorite sharing tool for a while now and this update makes an already solid app even more fantastic. You can download Droplr for Mac 4.2 directly from here. The Mac App Store version will be updated in the coming days.
