I stopped fighting subscriptions also, and I am picky on what apps I subscribe too.I have stopped fighting subscriptions. What I have found that I really do not (like most people) have a need to use too many apps. There are only a few essential apps that I keep going back to. And when those are on subscription, they are continuously getting better.
1Password has many useful features compared to key chain but so does BitWarden, which is technically just as sound as 1Password. The main reason I subscribe to 1Password is because they do subscribe to the “software as art” philosophy and focus so much effort on little delights all across the user experience. 1Password is for passwords like Things 3 is for To Dos or Day One is for journaling: a joy to use.
