1Password for iPad

I would stay away from the special since they are going to be releasing a newer version of it in the near future and it's not a update so you will be paying more for it if you do down load it.

----------

I'd highly recommend 1Password Pro (the universal app) for iOS and it's OSX counterpart.

On the computer specifically, it makes your password life much more secure and simple.


Just dropped comment about 1Password for iOS. They are on the verge of releasing a new version as I understand it, so do you really thinks it worth it downloading a old version with no way of upgrading it?

The current iOS app is on sale, but the new version is a new app and will require another purchase.

Well, that is some BS.

Agreed. I've never seen an iOS app where an update is a new app that requires another purchase. What are they thinking?
