Readdle adds drag and drop between its apps

In his wish list for iOS 11 last week, Federico Viticci suggested drag-and-drop as a feature that would work well on the iPad, especially in Split Screen mode. Now Readdle, maker of iOS apps like PDF Expert and Documents, has gone ahead and rolled out just such a capability—although only between its own apps.

I haven’t had a chance to ry out the feature firsthand yet, but in its concept videos, such as the one above, it looks pretty impressive. And it certainly seems like evidence that Apple could implement such a feature if it wanted to. Unsurprisingly, Federico has a deep dive on the feature that’s worth checking out as well.
