New to iphone, used to use datavault with BB, not feeling like paying $29 or anything like that. Any good free ones or lower that $29 for iphone?

i understand that 1password seems expensive but its the best on the app store hands down

No, I can understand that it may be the best one available, but there are some AMAZING games on the App Store with crazy graphics etc which go for $0.99. So it's just weird to see this fairly simple app, which just requires good encryption goes for $9.99.

That's because 1,000,000 people buy a game which requires no support, and 100,000 buy a password encryption program which syncs with both iOS devices, Mac and PCs, and generates support questions and enhancement requests...

As far as I know I believe the desktop app is free and the price has no bearing on the desktop version

If you want to pay .99 cents for a game fine but with a password app you're talking much more by way of security and the two shouldn't be compared.

Another vote for 1password.

It's great. I love the integration with Safari. The fact that it can sync via dropbox is great too. I no longer have to worry about backing up my password file and as soon as I add a password on any machine, it's available on any other of my devices.

Well worth the price.

I thought that 1password had a free desktop version

No, it's not free, but I'd say it's worth the money. I use it all the time on my Macs, iPhone and iPad.
Also worth noting- if you think you might get an iPad, buy the Pro version of 1Password as it's universal and works on iPhone and iPad and saves you the money of having to buy the iPhone version then getting the iPad (Pro) version later.

What are the differences between 1Password and 1PasswordPro? Is 1PasswordPro worth the extra $5.00?

How about Passwords & Pins? I downloaded it, but haven't used it. Is it any good?

1 Password Pro is for both your iPad and iPhone. The $9.99 version is for the iPad only

If you're looking for something cheaper, I've been using iKeePass ($0.99) for years and now it syncs automatically through DropBox, so you can keep it synced at all times with your desktop app (free) also.

I've been using oneSafe.
I got a Promo Code from the forums for it.

I must say, it's an awesome program. The UI is amazing.
You can upload the password to iCould etc.

You can use a password to log in or you can use patern lock.

It's $5.99.

I highly recommend it. Does everything i need it to do and the app is beautiful looking too.
