After developer AgileBits released details on 1Password 4 in August, the company has now released the new version of its popular password managing software for the Mac. Specifically, 1Password has been completely redesigned for OS X and promises compatibility with the upcoming OS X Mavericks, along with features such as iCloud syncing for passwords in addition to Dropbox and Wi-Fi Sync access and multiple password vault support featuring AES-256 encryption. The update also includes rewritten browser extensions and new fields for additional categories such as loyalty programs.
Keeping you safe. 1Password has been protecting people for nearly a decade. 1Password 4 builds upon this rich history to bring you the best possible security with unmatched productivity.
Security made beautiful. 1Password 4 has been re-written from pixel to bit to give you the best possible experience wrapped in a gorgeous new UI.
Saving you time. 1Password makes it simple to use strong unique passwords. Being secure with 1Password is easier than being at risk using weak ones you have to remember and type manually.
1Password 4 also offers a new "Security Audit" section in the main sidebar, allowing users to easily which logins are currently weak passwords, as well as which passwords are used across multiple sites or have not been changed in a significant period of time.
1Password 4 is a $39.99 download and is avaliable on the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

Now, if you need something more cross-platform and less expensive, Last Pass is decent.
It's fantastic to hear from you again :)
From the bottom of my heart. Thank you for this. I can't really express how much it meant to read this. Honestly, a little teary eyed here. Thank you...
If there's anyone to thank here I think it's the founders of AgileBits for founding a company that puts the power to do what is right for the customers in the hands of the customer support team. We believe in 1Password and we honestly want our users to be happy with it. It's much more fun to be able to make someone happy than to make them upset.
If anyone here is having trouble, let me know, you're free to ask for me in a support email if you want. I don't give up on the hard problems, we'll get it worked out.
Personally, even though I already owned 1Password 3... I purchased the MAS version of 1Password 3 last Thanksgiving when the had a sale. I did this because they announced that the upgrade to 1Password 4 would be free. Personally... I have a strong preference for MAS distribution because the update process happens asynchronously rather than at program launch.
BY FAR... the single greatest thing that I love about 1Password is their customer support. When I had problems with syncing my single 1P vault between 3 different users (my personal account, my wife's account, and my personal work account)... on many different computers... including several computers that had all three login accounts... a quick note to Kyle had me flooded with information on how to solve my issue... including deep help from the full customer support team. Having someone like Kyle being available just a quick PM away on MacRumors... coupled with his responsiveness and true desire to help has won me over as a customer for life (or at least until Kyle quits).
In my experience and as a user since beta, I have had to pay for every major update (1, 2, 3, etc).
I have family licenses for both Mac and Windows plus iOS and would love to be able to upgrade!
