@a4k04 You are RIGHT ON THE MONEY!
With the boost to 2TB that I didn't need - (needed only 1TB) strongly considering just moving to Google Drive as for LESS I get 1TB for data I need in a cloud drive and further 1TB I could use for storage with Google Photos or share with family on Google One (shared storage)
Dropbox wants to charge $200 for 2TB to share where as Google is HALF that with the same family sharing: https://one.google.com/about/plans
Google has also moved to a newer client that was used in their paid Workspace offering which is WAY better than there old terrible one. Yet Dropbox bloated their client with Paper and other nonsense.
So not only MISSING Apple Silicon support ONE YEAR after first dev kits, RIPPING people off. Supported Dropbox since early days but the "falling on deaf ears" is constant lately. Didn't need Paper or other features - need a cloud storage that is modern, efficient and priced right with support for platforms I care about. Just set a reminder to DROP renewal of Dropbox a month before new annual billing and move to Google Cloud.
I have been watching this thread closely for a while to see if anything happens, but as we know, no dice. I contacted their support in hopes to get to a Product Manager but no such luck.
I have logged an idea with Dropbox in the hopes that gets to the Product Team opposed to the front line support team.
👍👍👍👍 Please vote on the Idea: 👍👍👍👍
Deranged? Strong words for customers' dissatisfaction with a company that has the reach and resources that Dropbox does, and has yet to provide users with even a beta to demonstrate that they are in some sort of a "rally", as you call it.
What other voice do customers have than their choice to either support or not support a company with their subscription investment? Nothing deranged about it to withdraw support after a while.
And customers obviously *do* care, as you can see in this thread. But I do agree with you that upvoting this "idea" is also a voice that we have, so I also just upvoted it, even though I believe it to be a necessity, rather than an idea or feature.
I see the same attitude in threads about Apple..."I have been a customer since the moon landing....I will leave if...Thats it! I'm cancelling if...if I don't get my way!!". I choose my words carefully. This kind of entitled reply is "deranged" because it is ineffectual; it is an illusion of power. Companies direct their resources to deliver the good and services that the majority of their customers want. That is why they inundate you with surveys.
Rally other people for your M1 native software. But like any request, even requests that sound more like emotional demands, you won't convince Dropbox (or Apple) to do anything unless they understand a significant number of their customers want this change. (There are 3 votes so far for an M1 version, compared to thousands for others)
Dropbox will get to M1 native versions eventually for the long term health of the service. There is a percentage of Dropbox customers that are with Apple, there is percentage of those Apple users that have M1 chips. To focus resources on this feature at the present time is obviously not a priority.
I voted it up. I want it to happen. Guess why? Because I'm on a M1 Mac. I didn't care less last week about Dropbox and M1 because I didn't have one. Thats not a coincidence.
Then again. I'M LEVEL 9!!! (Like the Beatle's Song!) Dropbox better DO iT! or I'LL USE MORE CAPS!!!
