Ubuntu One for Mac OS X now in beta

We know many of you have been eagerly awaiting our Mac OS X client, so we’re pleased to tell you that the public beta is now available for download


Ubuntu One is a cross-platform personal cloud service already available on Windows , iOS, Android and Ubuntu – the new Mac beta completes that story.

So you can use Ubuntu One on your favourite OS or across a variety of devices and platforms.

The Ubuntu One Mac beta is easy to use, all you have to do is:

1. Download the .dmg file and open it on your machine.
2. Drag the Ubuntu One app icon from the .dmg into your Applications folder.

3. Feel free to unmount the .dmg and run the app.
4. Once you open the app, you’ll be asked to enter your administrator password to allow Ubuntu One to have administrator privileges.

5. Next you’ll be asked to sign in with your existing Ubuntu One account or create a new account.













6. After you sign in, follow the prompts to select any folders you’d like to sync to Ubuntu One and you’re ready to go!

As this is a beta we are still working hard fixing bugs to make the Mac client even slicker. Please be patient whilst we iron out the kinks over the coming weeks, and make sure to keep your eye on the download page or on our Facebook, Google+ pages or follow us on Twitter for information about the latest client updates.

Thank you to those of you who’ve been testing the alpha version and you can help us further by continuing to test the beta and reporting any bugs you find, you can see known issues here.

    Sorry if off topic.
    One feature that I would relly like is download statistics for the files that I share.
    This is a feature that has been requested from long time to dropbox but it still has not being implemented, and the users has to try external services like bit.ly.
    Maybe you could offer this feature to paying users.
