This is really unbelievable. It doesn't even directly affect me yet but I know it will in the future when I upgrade my current laptop.
I've been considering alternatives to Dropbox for a while (fee was increased when I "got upgraded") but this is going to push me over the edge.
Dropbox, oh my darlings at Dropbox. How is this a question? Let me rephrase that: this is not a question! You are the leading provider of pro + consumer cloud-computing storage services – *of course* you have to support the latest hardware from Apple – and every other major computer manufacturer. If you don't, I'll have to reconsider my choice to (for now) not switch to iCloud Drive. (That's too many negatives in one sentence, but you know what I mean.)
I'm a business customer (Teams plan), and I will cancel my subscription if there is no native M1 client when I buy my next macbook early next year.
To all the newbs to the thread, this topic has been a point of contention for a long time so put your money where your mouth is. Yes, it's a pain, but I cancelled my decade-long account last week, moved all my files to iCloud and will not be renewing even if they come through with M1 compatible versions.
While it's great that they are getting a lot of traffic on this today and maybe will pay a little attention, it doesn't change the overall corporate attitude that has been embarrassing for a year+
Dropbox folks - this is not a feature request this is making sure Dropbox works properly and most efficiently with Apples new line of laptops.
how could this not be a priority for you.
I've been a customer for over 13 years, I've patiently waited for native M1 with more appropriate battery and memory utilization for a background application... that patience is running out. At this point I'm moving to sync or onedrive as both have native M1 support.
I just got notified that Dropbox (via @Emma ) has changed the status to of this request to "In Review".
So after more than a year, all it took was a ton of up votes in a 24 hour period to get them to notice this...or their PR team saw the web posting on this and is forcing the sleeping community management and development teams to take notice. SMH.
