Popular third-party password manager 1Password received an update today that takes the iOS app to version 7.1 and introduces Markdown support in secure notes, stickers for Messages, and a couple of notable fixes.
Following on from the Mac version updated in May, 1Password for iOS now lets you create rich secure notes that can include headers, bold and italic text, lists, tappable links, and more.
Also in this version is a collection of 1Password stickers for users to enliven their chat threads in the Messages app.
Several lingering bugs have been squashed in version 7.1, but two stand out: Searches no longer return broken or incorrect results, and creating a new item no longer causes 1Password to become unresponsive.
Elsewhere, an issue where search borked when vault items where syncing has been resolved, and occasional crashes when users add new items should no longer occur.
Lastly, the developers have updated all text in the app to make it more consistent, and improved the rendering of template icons in list and detail views.
1Password for iOS can be downloaded from the App Store for free, but there is an in-app fee to access the service. A standard 1Password account is priced at $3.99 per month and a multi-user family account is priced at $6.99 per month. [Direct Link]

[doublepost=1532107022][/doublepost] At least give Enpass a try before paying for 1P https://www.enpass.io.
I was a 1P user not long ago, but due to their push towards subscription and the ridiculously expensive single license I ended up with Enpass on everything. Don't regret it. The UI may not be as finely polished as 1P, but it does its job.
That said, iOS 12 will add the first and third feature (but not the second).
You're totally fine paying for Office 365 for cloud storage but you're uncomfortable paying 3$ a month for what is likely the most important application anybody can have at this point in time?
You would think after all the breaches folks would realize that password management is quite possibly the most valuable tool you have - it essentially protects you as a person (e.g., would you store your social security card in an untrusted location?)
I use LastPass but the monthly-sub is hardly an issue. Do you have any idea how hard it is to stay up to date with software security trends? Do you have *any* idea what it costs to run a dev shop? Imagine this:
5 software engineerings alone in a tech hub city (Seattle, SFO, Boston, NYC, etc) would cost you around 750-800,000 a year in salary, not including benefits, bonus, and cost of doing business (e.g., equipment, office space etc.)
So.. yeah. 3 bucks a month is pretty reasonable when you figure theres more like 100 employees at the company.
However, I'm happily subscribing to 1Password because they put in a lot of work to update and respond to security threats and usability changes on websites.
[doublepost=1532369960][/doublepost] As a rule, I think the subscription model is basically like doing a kickstarter for the next version of your app, but with lock-in. It's frankly bull**** in most* situations.
Example: Ulysses was a full-featured writing app that went subscription a year ago. From what I can tell, they've just used all that money to noodle around trying things out since then, not enough to warrant a full release. Here's an idea: if you have written a feature-mature app that just needs maintenance, try making a new app for people to buy. Seriously, if the Ulysses people tried their hand at something for mail or productivity, I'd check it out -- but I'm not going to pay forever just so they can keep farting around with something that works perfectly already.
* 1Password is an exception, to me, because security threats require ongoing work. Same with any app that pushes out actual content, obviously.
