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.

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.
