The link downloads a BETA version of this software.

The developer is in Nigeria. I have nothing against Nigeria but I have a lot of something against over a decade of non-stop Nigerian Internet scams. This software has NOT (yet) been approved by Apple for the Mac App Store, despite links at the developer's sites to the contrary. There's a line between FUD and being wisely paranoid. Hopefully, this will simply be a great addition to DropBox. But be aware and wary.

I personally am going to wait until such time as Apple actually approves this software for the Mac App Store.

Version 1.0

Nope I'm not in Nigeria. I just want the domain name to look cool as bi.ng of Microsoft.

All the 3rd-party Dropbox API usage must be reviewed by Dropbox before it goes production mode, and I the binary is actually signed by an Apple issued certification. (And that's why you are able to get the receipt from Apple with the sandbox Apple ID.) The certification contains my developer name, which you can check with command line. And Apple does back ground checks before they issue any developer account.. Call Apple's toll-free # if you think it's a scam. (And I can't signed it with 3rd-party release certification by Apple either, because Xcode 6 beta 4 is broken and wont ket me do so.)

The fact is, Dropbox API can't get your password or even account email. You can block all the connections to anything other than Dropbox's domain with firewalls such as Little Snitch if you don't trust me. And this application is in sandbox mode, it can't even access anything outside itself unless you let it do so.

The only reason it's not on Mac App Store was simply because it's written with Swift. Apple does not allow anything written in Swift to be submit before Yosemite came out. There's no way to find potential problems unless it goes public beta before it's released. Apple does that too. The site is hosted on GitHub's server, check the IP if you want. And my mail server with the same domain was hosted by Google App Enterprise service. Call Google if you don't trust me on that either.

I already have 2 other apps on the MAS right now. You're welcome to check them out. (Metarminator , OpenConv)

It's not fair to make judgement like this unless you have proves of what you claim, especially when it's not even started. People are brave enough to let some unknown guy on the internet "jailbreak" (aka exploit to get root access) their phone but afraid a Dropbox client might stole their file. NSA can access your Dropbox folder directly as they are on Amazon AWS, which you can't even do anything to prevent.

Chill. Don't be too much of a paranoid. :)

Version 0.4

It was taken down by the developer, which is now being re-written from scratch in Swift.

It will be released to the Mac App Store once 10.10 is released.


I've made it work on 10.9 now.

See the app website for more info.

It works at my Mac (10.9.3)

Just curious why something like this is only compatible with Mavericks 10.9. Heck, Dropbox even supports Tiger 10.4 still. I'm assuming the author will publish this to the delightful Mac App Store walled garden.

Version 0.2.3

No it's not publishing to MAS and may never will. And this does what Dropbox doesn't, please read the FAQ.

Coding for 10.8 or lower is painful under 10.9 + Xcode 5 setup thanks to Apple. Sadly, I already mentioned that it will not work for 10.8 and lower, but still people rate due to this kind of reasons.

If you have problems with the application usage, I'm happy to help, otherwise it's not what I can do.


Maybe use Xcode 4.6.3, which works under Mavericks.

The main problem is, Apple tried so hard to prevent people from using the old stuff. If we want, we can still install old SDKs like 10.6 and gcc 4.0 to Xcode 5, it will get warnings but it might work.

However, as a single developer maintaining an open source freeware, it's really not worth the trouble to provide such backward support, especially for a newly start project. People will eventually switch to new OS, no matter they like or not, like Apple did to their iOS devices. When that day comes, it will take too much work to just upgrade the whole API, and 10.9 is a big gap from 10.8 and older, you will know that if you are following such stuff. And testing a product using a different version of SDK on the developing setup is not a good idea either, some strange problems might happen,

I understand people wanted to use it, and I knew Dropbox support to 10.4. But I don't have their resources to maintain 10 different versions of code, and sadly their client and SDK s**ks as they don't care about Desktop users. I created this simply because Droplr is no longer free, and I'm a paid user of Dropbox. Dropbox has everything that a Droplr client needs, I can't see why Dropbox can't make a better client that does what Droplr did. That's why I made OneShot, for me and my friends that needs the functions of Droplr but don't want to pay twice for the same thing.

It's always a tricky idea to share a personal project with the world, as people tend to blame it for the reasons that it didn't made for. And looks like people would rather pay for expensive, sloppy software instead of using freeware. I have no idea.

I wish Dropbox can someday add all these features to the official client, and the only way they will ever hear it is making something better out there that lots of people are using, so they will notice it and re-think about their own product.

Thank you for the feedback. Just wanted to let people know that it's not because I'm a fanboy so I use 10.9 SDK, it's just that Apple doesn't really gave us many choices.

Doesn't work. At all. App is active, account is linked, path is set: no uploads - they fail every time.

Version 0.2.3

I have using it for a few days and so does other beta testers under 10.9.3.

Do you mind to share your issues on the issue tracker? What if you set your path to non (delete everything) and use the capture menu or drag and drop a file to the status bar icon? Even if uploading failed, it will still show error messages through notification center, do you mind to redirect them?

As I don't have other people's setups nor debug info, I can't really help with just a "it's not working" feedback. It's still beta and needs more feedback to make it better.
