Desktop app (with syncing) for devices with ARM processors

Desktop app (with syncing) for devices with ARM processors

I would really like to see a client for the Raspberry Pi, or any ARM based client that supports the live syncing that dropbox does so well.

I ended up cancelling my Dropbox Plus plan in February because of their lack of ARM support. I will happily rejoin if they start supporting ARM!

With all the devices coming out with ARM processors including the new Microsoft Surface Pro X, why wouldn't dropbox implement the compatibility?? I guess Microsoft One Drive it is...

Please compile a Raspberry Pi OS version of the dropbox sync.

 

Lack of this capability is inhibiting my use case for the dropbox cloud service and 

my subscription cost.

 

This platform is growing rapidly and dropbox should be able to hire the necessary engineers for this capability.

Just got my M1 Mac and it’s disappointing that Dropbox, even after more than 6 months, does not fully support it! ☹️

I Would also like A Raspberry Pi 4 8GB Model ARM Full Dropbox Desktop Client (raspbian 32bit, ubuntu arm 64bit and windows arm64 bit).

 

I have currently chosen not to subscribe to a plan at present until arm binaries become available 🙂

I'm with doggdogg.  I haven't cancelled yet but as soon as I have time to test some alternatives, I will be dropping Dropbox.

Come on Dropbox. Sort out this HUUUUGE issue which affects so many of us.

 

And while you're at it, perhaps you should look at your own "How To Use Dropbox" guide?

If only we COULD access the LATEST versions of our files on ANY computer!
