MacDropUpdate 2 Reaches 400,000 Uses
On March 21st 2012, MacDropUpdate 2 reached 400,000 uses. To this date, it’s been used in over 90 countries around the world. I’m amazed by how many people have been using MacDropUpdate to keep up to date with the most cutting edge versions of Dropbox.
In a somewhat disappointing turn of events, Dropbox has recently made a change in the way that they provide forum builds which means that they can only be updated to through the Dropbox app, and not by direct download through the forums, which means that MacDropUpdate has been temporarily broken. I expect that, once the current branch goes stable, the Dropbox team will go back to posting download links, and MacDropUpdate will become useful again.
Thanks to everyone who’s supported me through with MacDropUpdate. It’s evolved from a relatively simple app that required you to manually copy the Dropbox app to its rightful location, to a very slick app that is for all intents and purposes, invisible. None of this could have been done without the kind words of my users, donators, and the Dropbox community.
