Gladys is a drag-and-drop shelf that holds things you want to set aside, such as links, text snippets, map locations, contacts, images, photos, emails, messages and much more (even if the application that the information came from is removed)

It works with any app that supports drag-and-drop, and lets you concentrate on whatever it is you are setting aside, without having to think where it needs to be dropped, or having to constantly switch between apps.

  • Works with any app that supports drag-and-drop, but also provides an extension for apps that don't yet support it, as well as the ability to paste items to & from the clipboard.

  • Quickly search for items inside the app or via Spotlight. Access your top items from the home screen / Today widget, your Apple Watch, and even iMessage.

  • Annotate items with notes, custom titles, and tag items with labels that allow you to easily categorise, browse, and sort your collection.

  • Take your collection with you on your iPhone, and keep it updated by turning on automatic iCloud syncing.

  • Import/export/merge collection archives simply by dragging.

  • Ideal for bookmarking between apps: For example you can quickly return to dropped email items by selecting 'Open' in their info view, or quickly share links between different browsers.

  • Experienced users can get details on every item and extract specific components (e.g. extract the URL of an image link, instead of the whole item).

  • Power users can use Gladys' Files extension to view/edit items in-place from other apps, as well as exporting all items in a ZIP file for sharing.

  • Technical users can inspect binary data using the in-built hex viewer.

  • Contains no analytics, ratings prompts, or noise.

  • Gladys is free for casual use (up to 10 simultaneous items). Power users with larger libraries can expand Gladys to hold unlimited items with a 99 cent in-app-purchase.


You can try out a beta version for macOS on this page.

Gladys does not employ analytics or share/inspect user data. Please see the Privacy Policy for more details.

Gladys supports the x-callback-url scheme for interoperating with other apps. For details please see here.
