“Sorry, we are still investigating this issue. Please give us more time.”

 

”Sorry, our iPad app is not compatible with the Vision Pro for the following technical reasons…”

 

”Sorry, we’ve decided that it’s not worth the support effort to enable the iPad app on visionOS, or the engineering effort to build a native app.”

 

 

At this point, I would be extremely happy if we just get one of the above answers, instead of radio silence.

Hey Dropbox: Can you please share the results of your investigation into Dropbox support for the Apple Vision Pro, now?

Any news? Or are you asking your Vision Pro users to find an alternative?

This really sounds like a nothingburger.

The Vision Pro is at one level an iPad for your face.

People use it to look at their files, even to use it for everything from entertainment to office work. Though someone did, I don't see any reason why we need to give you individual use cases. Sharing files is sufficient, sharing files for what sounds like you're trying to appease some project manager to justify probably a trivial amount of effort.

iPad apps can be compatible with Vision Pro.

You have an iPad app.

iPad apps run on Vision Pro by default. You had to deliberately restrict the Dropbox app from Vision Pro.

Microsoft OneDrive is iPad compatible, and integrates with Files.

 

Speaking as someone who's had a Dropbox account since the early days, and appreciated that it just works on anything I use, probably the only thing keeping my account open is the inconvenience of moving.

 

I think your loyal customers deserve more than a handwave, and Peter Pan asking us to believe Tinkerbell back to life.

 

P.S. If you're a loyal Dropbox user, Documents by Readdle will access your Dropbox files on Vision Pro. It costs money, so it's your choice whether to do that or find a file sharing service that treasures your business.

Hi Dropbox Community! 

First, I wanted to let you know that the Dropbox team, including the relevant Engineering and Product teams are keeping a close eye on this thread. 

We appreciate that there is a strong appetite to have a Vision Pro Dropbox app.

 

We're currently working on it - however, and I know that this is not the answer that you'd like to hear, we currently don't have a estimate date of launch to share with you. 
We also have some dependencies with Apple version release calendar, adding some uncertainty to our roadmap on this topic. 

I'll keep you posted of any development - please bear with us, definitely appreciate your patience here!

I just want to recognize and credit Dropbox Community Manager Laureline for communicating, for the first time, that the Dropbox team IS in fact working on supporting Apple Vision Pro.  To this point, there had been no confirmation of any activity beyond exploring this possibility.  I have recently renewed my business subscription to Dropbox in hopes the company would decide to commit to and deliver this support, and I thank you, Laureline, for making this announcement at last.  I can hardly wait to see what your team delivers and hope you will reach out to the community whenever we may be helpful to provide feedback or act as a sounding board for the active development of AVP support, as you work on it.

Thank you for the update, Lauraline.

 

Is there a technical reason the iPad version of the Dropbox App can't be released on Apple Vision Pro?

I’m very excited to hear that something is in the works!

 

Is there any possibility of a public beta for those of us that are running the public visionOS 2.0 dev builds?

I also appreciate the clear statement regarding work on Dropbox for VisionOS. However, at some point very soon I will be looking for a specific date as my subscription renewal comes due in November. I am afraid to say that if there is not either an iPad version for VisionOS or a committed date for a full VisionOS Dropbox by the time of Apple's public release of VisionOS 2.0 in September, I will start removing my files from Dropbox and that will lead inevitably to non-renewal.

My guess would be that it's not a technical matter, it's that Apple are being extremely restrictive with terms as they want users to move to iCloud.
But Dropbox won't want to say that publicly and ruin any relationships.
