I can only assume the person who typed "This idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with our team." has no idea what these words mean: architecture, ARM, M1, Intel, microprocessor, compile, Rosetta.
This inexcusable. If you don't actually understand a request, don't reply. Ask for help with someone more knowledgable than you.
Seriously? Needs more votes to have the desktop app be natively compatible with MacOS, which represents > 10% of all desktop OS? Come on Dropbox, don't force us to migrate to Google Drive, which already IS compatible with the M1 architecture. Please address this!
Signed up specifically to vote for this. Native support for Apple Silicon needs to happen and should not be predicated on enough users having to complain via a "share idea" system. Dropbox, you are letting down your paid customers by taking the stance you have. Do better!
It's ilogical, incomprehensible and, honestly, dumb, that Dropbox doesn't do that without needing us, the users, to vote for this.
Unless they do that in the next few months (or whatever it's left of my current subscription plan) I will be moving to Google Drive. And I URGE everybody to do the same.
Does any of this remind you of that old-timey page layout program Quarkxpress? Once dominating the market and now a niche player? Have fun with ignoring our community Dropbox…
This is crazy. By not supporting M1 they're essentially not supporting Mac anymore in a usable way. I'd never thought about not renewing my membership before, but typing this on a brand new M1 Max 16 inch, and copying all my files across to iCloud Drive.
The way we work is changing. Share and discover new ways to work smarter with Dropbox in our community.Sound good? Let's get started.
