Seriously? 
Stating the obvious but it's been over a year now and you cannot assign ONE Mac dev to this task for a couple of days?!

M1 support is not a feature request - it is and should be considered a core to the Dropbox service. Within the creative industry (I'm in music) Apple computers and Dropbox file sharing has more or less been the norm for 10 odd years.

 

But having one Macbook Air M1 already and just ordered the new MacBook Pro M1 Max to replace my current Mac desktop (intel), I will have no other option but to move my cloud storage and sharing elsewhere if this isn't sorted asap.

 

It is just insane that this is even an issue. Small and big software developers alike have if not already presented native code at the very least offered roadmaps.

This is definitely necessary in my opinion!

We are a distributed team of 4 marketing and communication specialists who have been working entirely via Dropbox for more than 5 years. We will all have switched to M1 Macs by the end of the year - and naturally expect Dropbox to continue to support its core creative audience natively.

I don’t have my M1 Mac yet but I was astonished to find out that this is even a thing!

 

Make the app a native M1 app or I may be forced to look for alternatives. It’s that simple. It’s 2021. This should be a recompile at this point. If it’s not then that calls more of your tech into question. And that would be more astonishing (and disappointing)

 

thanks

As others have stated, lack of M1 support sacrifices battery usage considerably. I’m honestly considering not renewing my Dropbox service and moving to a solution that doesn’t hurt my machine as much. Why, when so many other providers have thought nothing of this, is Dropbox dragging its feet? You’re relying on passive support that users would take the initiative to come here, rather than understanding your user base and the expansion of Apple’s evolution to M1-based machines. To me, that shows your company to be short-sighted at best, and self-absorbed at worst.  Quite frankly, I’m kind of over Dropbox. Google Drive has been making so many leaps and bounds in its desktop apps, and just works better, for a fraction of the cost. And it works natively on M1 machines.

Dropbox should listen to paid M1 users or some might consider alternative solutions with native M1 support

Dropbox will be abandoned by Apple silicon users if it fails to support if natively. Please use the 2-year transition period wisely.
