Drag-and-pop is an exten- sion of traditional drag-and-drop. As the user starts dragging an icon towards some target icon, drag-and-pop responds by temporarily moving potential target icons towards the user’s current cursor location, thereby allow- ing the user to interact with these icons using comparably small hand movements.
