I bought a new 14" MacBook Pro with the M1 chip in March 2022 and was hoping to run APP on it. I can download the app, but not open it after dragging it to the apps folder. I changed preferences as instructed on this forum, no joy. I believe the laptop's OS is Monterrey. Apple tech support says to contact the developer. Please advise.

Are you using beta 2.0 of APP? A, scratch that, I see you don't. So with our beta version we were able to fully notarize APP to pass these checks on MacOS. You can download the latest beta here:

Hi Susan @safinsd,

Indeed like Vincent indicates, you will want to install APP 2.0.0-beta2 for ARM64/M1 hardware. Then installation should simply work fine 🙂
