Identifying if an App needs rosette on Apple M1 Mac's

Some of you ask me how to tell is an app is using Rosetta or is it native to the new M1 chip on Macs.

You can check this by going into your Aplication folder on your M1 mac, right clicking on the App you want to check and chosing 'Get Info'.

If you see next to the name 'Universal' the app is native to M1 architecture.

Fun fact, if you want your nativ M1 app to use Rosetta, you just need to tick the box next to 'Open using Rosetta'

Is you see 'Intel" then the app is running Rosetta.

Enjoy!
