    haven't heard, looking into it as well..
    I don't like the fact that we needs to buy it for all our devices. Like say Angry birds, I have it for my MBP and I need to buy it for the iapd too? sucks..

    not sure what ipassword is, but I use 1password for my iphone and Macs and have used it for years. I love it. It's the FIRST program I place on any new Mac I get.

    Interested as well

    I am looking for a secure password manager as well. How does 1Password compare to others like SplashData?

    Yes it's great! I started looking for a very simple, no nonsense way to store passwords on my iPhone. Just something cheap. I stumbled upon 1password and after watching some videos on the Mac app I became a convert. The Mac app is simply phenomenal. Have you watched review videos about it?

    The iPhone/iPad counterparts are great too. It sucks that it can't be as awesome as the the Mac app because safari can't have plugins. But overall the combo can't br beat. If u just want something for the iPad you might be able to find something that's better/cheaper. I think I got the universal app back when it was on sale for like 5 bucks or something.

    Well they need to take the time to develop for each platform... So they shold be paid appropriately. When you buy a DVD do you expect to be able to get the blu-ray for free

    Yeah I actually looked into that way back when. It looked pretty good. But I dont remember if they had an iOS app back then

    Add me to the list of 1password fans. It's on my top 5 applications/apps of all time. Powerful and easy and useful. It's not quite as easy to use on the iPad and iPhone as the Mac or PC clients are -- but that is due to iOS limitations not a fault of the app.

    It also works vey nicely with dropbox to sync your encrypted data file across all your PC and iPhone/iPad versions. I have it running on a Mac and a PC and my iPhone and iPad -- all synced securely and without issue via dropbox. Having all your credit card and bank account info all those places is super handy when you need to look it up for whatever reason and don't have them handy (but, if you are like me, you will almost always have your phone or iPad around).

    Good luck with your decision. There are few programs I would recommend as much as 1password.

    1password is very good ... created by a couple of Canadian guys.

    I highly recommend it:cool:

    No but I can play it on my blu-ray players for free...
    I think it should be tied to your account. Like if I buy Angry birds, it should be for my itunes account.

    1password is awesome! It's keeps my iPhone, iMac, and iPad in sync thru a collaboration with Drop Box. Makes things really easy.

    1Password is a solid program, well worth buying for both MacOS X and iOS devices. You can keep them in sync via Dropbox, which has worked flawlessly for me. I highly recommend it.

    1password is by far the best Mac App I have ever used. i have it on my ipod, Mac, Android and even my Windows machine. It is absolutely fantastic-it works with nearly every browser on the market, can keep track of all kinds of data and can sync with dropbox. I can honestly say that I really don't know what any of my passwords are as I use this to create every password that I use online

    I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    I downloaded 1Password for the iPhone close to 3 years ago when it was first released, and it was free back then. I've used it ever since, and I've tried the free trial for the Mac to transfer the passwords to a new iPhone, and it worked well, but now it won't allow me to use more than 10 entries or so on the Mac version unless I pay.

    I also wanted to use the iPhone version on my iPad, but it seems like a hassle to transfer the passwords over, so I simply have them on my iPhone for now.

    It's a great app though.

    another vote for 1password. I was skeptical at first about having everything in one place, but no problems yet.

    I still think that storing all passwords in the same basket is not really a good idea, if someone manages to know your master password of the 1Password app, then all of your passwords will be visible. I got the 1Password app when they offered it for free last year but never used it.

    Oh man, I wouldn't know what to do without 1password. I have ALL my passwords, bank details, credit cards and personal information stored on here. It's great.

    Being able to back it up as well gives me piece of mind and I have had my iPad crash on me and had to do a restore so I would suggest doing regular backups.

    The chances of someone being able to access it if I ever lost my iPad is very slim. I use a long numerical password (12 digits) that's very easy for me to remember.

    Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
