Please! Most Software is M1 by now. Can you please hurry up, otherwise we'll have to move. There are other options. Can't be that hard 😉

There is no question that Dropbox needs to support MacOS on M1. As developer I cannot understand how they missed this.

Happy to hear you’re working hard on a Native M1 version of Dropbox. This is a dealbreaker for us.

@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.

First half of 2022? You'd think they'd throw more resources at this now that it's received so much attention.

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.

 

Dropbox, you need to step up.

Need more support?
