Still $18 is a ripoff. I only bought one app the most $10. Then if Apple pulls it you are left with a expensive app with no updates.

$18 for quality software is a ripoff? This is the single thing I hate most about the App Store: it makes clueless people think software grows on trees and that every app should be $1 at most.

But I guess we should face reality, they're not targeting you. They're targeting people who would otherwise waste over $18 in time managing passwords. If you make $8/hour, it'll have to save you 135 minutes before it's worth it. If you make $80/hour, it'll have to save you 13.5 minutes before it's worth it. And of course, as your time becomes more valuable, so does the value of having super secure passwords.

Hi All! I work for AgileBits, just popping in to answer a few of the questions here. We keep an eye on these types of posts as best we can to make sure we can help however we can.

How long until Apple take this off the App Store, I wonder? ;)
There's no reason it should be taken off the App Store. They've approved the app several times now and we've been on the App Store for years.

Way too expensive and why does it have a 17+ rating? I seen apps that were offensive with a 4+ rating. A example was a hip hop music app with the f word clearly in the title yet it has a 4+ rating. Even Google search app has a 4+ rating.

I will not buy it even if it was cheap for that reason because if the irritating popup saying if I am 17 years or older. I am 35 and my iTunes account should know by my birthdate.

Still $18 is a ripoff. I only bought one app the most $10. Then if Apple pulls it you are left with a expensive app with no updates.
The built in browser requires 17+ rating. If you look at other browsers in the App Store (Chrome (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/chrome/id535886823?mt=8), Atomic Web Browser (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/atomic-web-browser-full-screen/id347929410?mt=8), and many others) they're all 17+. This is because the browser can goto any webpage. It's not something we can change. Sorry!

See the above mention, it's extremely unlikely it'll be removed from the App Store. It's been on there for years.

As for the price. We certainly feel it is worth the price. We provide full support and do our very best to make our users happy. You're welcome to contact us via email (see the signature link for details) and we can happily answer any questions you have prior to purchasing or after if you have any trouble at all along the way.


However, AgileBits has yet to update their OS X client. They've been "in development" for a loooong time, but it seems they're more focused on their iOS product. 1Password 4.0 for OS X may be a long way out, and won't be a free upgrade, which has many dissatisfied for ponying up cash only to have to buy it again (App Store doesn't allow "upgrade" pricing). Their OS X app is long in the tooth, could use iCloud syncing, better browser integration, etc.
We're working on the OS X app. We're a very small team and it's definitely not easy to put out apps of this complexity without time :) We hope to have the Mac application out to our users as soon as we possibly can.

For what it's worth, all users that purchased from the Mac App Store will get a free upgrade to version 4. So, there's no need for the App Store to have upgrade pricing options.

There's also a banner on our website store saying any purchases made from a certain point forward will receive a free upgrade to version 4. We'll do our best to accommodate our users.

It used to be my fav, but since they removed local wi-fi syncing in version 4 these upgrades do not mean so much to me. I want my home syncing back as an option. I do not use Dropbox nor Cloud for such a private info to be flying around.
We removed local wi-fi syncing because it was just not a good user experience. We always hear from users who thought it was great and it worked fine for them. For these users, we certainly understand that it doesn't seem like it was a bad user experience, but to the majority of our users it broke frequently, it wasn't easy to setup and a lot of these were things we couldn't fix. It often came down to network configurations and network hardware. It just wasn't an easy fix.

We heard from users like yourself and we released a local USB sync in place of the wifi option. You can read more about it here (http://blog.agilebits.com/2013/01/03/direct-syncing-in-1password-4-for-ios/)

Instructions on how to get it running are here (http://discussions.agilebits.com/categories/1password-usb-sync).

Do note that it is a beta, but many users are using it without any issues at all. Most of what is beta about it is related to the interface and initial setup. We hope to improve this before releasing it as a real 1.0 release.

So you knew that your comment about inability to download old version of 1Password was false yet you still made it? Trolling much?

You have the following options:

1) Bite the bullet and scroll a list of 1000 apps (it might become smaller if you will hide apps that are already on your phone). You only need to do it once!

2) Use iTunes to reinstall the app (same list but with much less scrolling on a Mac/PC).

3) Use iTunes to trim the list of purchased apps by hiding the ones you no longer need (that's what I did - my list went from 700 to about 150). Hide apps that are no longer supported, apps that you've tried but decided not to use, free versions of apps bought later, irrelevant apps for past events, crapps, etc (you can always unhide them later, should you change your mind).

Basically I find it hard to fault AgileBits - they did everything right.

1Password is hands down the most valuable piece of software I have ever purchased. It's saved me from the burden of remembering passwords for the hundreds of accounts that I have. Its given me peace of mind, knowing that I have unique, secure passwords for all of my accounts, all because I know that I don't have to remember them all. It's saved me hours of typing login credentials (no kidding, with the amount I use this program, it adds up to hours).

The only program that has given me even remotely comparable value is Adobe Creative Suite, and that's only because I use it for my profession. Even still, it cost me 50 times more than 1Password did.
