Exagear Desktop on Pinebook
#1
Searching around to see if Dropbox have an ARM client that might run on the Pinebook, I stumbled across something called Exagear Desktop which claims to run i686 apps on ARM and I note there is a version for Pine64. They claim 5x quicker than QEMU. Just wondering if anyone has tried it (particularly on a Pinebook) and whether it is worth the $25 they're asking or is it snake oil?

Hi. I don't know exactly, how dropbox works, but I've tried Exagear with WPS Office. My opinion: yes, it works a liitle bit slower than the same soft on x86 computer. A LITTLE bit is a key, for me working slower like that is easy acceptable.
In case of dropbox application, which in most cases works in background, there will be no difference (I think so) beetwen Pinebook / other ARM, and x86.
