1Password 50% off until 2/3/2013

Just a note, 1Password is on sale from its usual price of $50 and is now $25. It's on version 3.9 and version 4.0 is due out soon, but if you buy it from the Mac App Store (which is the only way to get it on Mac, I believe) you get the upgrade to version 4.0 free.

Their iOS app - which is now a universal iPhone + iPad app - is also 50% off until Sunday.

The iOS app supports syncing through iCloud, but iCloud support won't be added into the Mac version until version 4. For now, you can sync via Dropbox.

I've been eying this application since the iOS version went universal (buying for iPhone and then again for iPad wasn't appealing). The benefit over just using Keychain is that it's browser- and platform-agnostic, and can store more than just login information. It also has a password generator, so you can create some long passwords with numbers and unusual characters.

I've gotten along fine with remembering my own passwords and relying on Keychain for smaller things, but based on my brief usage I can say that it's a very nice application. It has a lot of polish. I'm pleased.

Edit: not to shill for the 1Password team, but I'll throw in that I looked for a number of other "1Password sale" threads to ensure that I wasn't making a duplicate, and only found one which indicated that 1Password was on sale for 30% off last November. A lot of posts remarked that 1Password doesn't go on sale often. The 1Password staff have mentioned that they would have a sale when 1Password 4 was released, but it looks like this might be the biggest discount for quite some time. If you've been on the fence about it over the price, this is probably your best chance to get it at its cheapest.
