@Xprt , if they were indeed "working hard" on it, it'd already be done -- in my whole toolchain, they're the ONLY holdout. M1 dev kits have been available for over a year.
Dropbox was too busy fattening the service up with collaboration features nobody asked for and ignored bringing CORE SERVICE FUNCTIONALITY up to date.
My business is waiting for this feature. Please make this internal build for native Apple M1 support soon, because otherwise we will leave Dropbox. It is to long waiting.
I've been following this for a while now and just now I read they start working on it.
I've been using dropbox only in my webbrowser ever since on my M1 Air and it's a pain.
I thought this was a no brainer for a caliber like dropbox to support M1s as fast as possible. It's embarrassing.
And even when it's done. I think I am not so sure anymore If I want a sharing system like this running on my Laptop unless it's really well coded and lightweight.
The things I read about performance under Rosetta 2 - and the things I see on my Intel Desktop Mac in the Activity Monitor make me think otherwise.
It's a pity ...
Please release the internal build and let us test it, too.
As a paying customer, we should not have to wait this long for support the latest cutting edge processor from a company that charges the prices you do for this service.
I am not complaining about paying ... I am not pleased with this purposeful lack of attention to technical detail and support for paying customers.
Indeed; Dropbox is my entire life, but professionally and private and it is hard to believe that as one of the best business programs, they don't have native M1 support yet.
