1Password updated for iOS 7, still 50% off for a limited time!

1Password has just been updated to version 4.5 for iOS and 4.3 for Mac. The iPhone and iPad app now has a whole new design for iOS 7 along with some awesome new features including multiple vault support, unified autofill, AirDrop support, sharing, and more. A lot of the new features are available in the Mac app as well. Better yet, AgileBits is still offering 50% off both versions for a limited time!

Aside from a design overhaul, the iOS version of 1Password also brings with it a lot of significant updates including an overhaul of 1Browser, the native browser inside of 1Password. New features include a much better autofill system, some awesome swipe gestures, a redesigned tab interface, and lots more. Some sections of 1Password have also been refined to help you sort and organize better. The Folders section is now replaced with an Organize section because tags can now be added to items that will sync across both 1Password for iOS and Mac.

1Password for Mac and Windows has let you create multiple vaults for a while now and today that feature comes to iOS too. You can now toggle between your different vaults within the Settings panel of 1Password for iOS. Beyond that, if you've got multiple Dropbox accounts, you can link up vaults that are dispersed over multiple accounts.

That scratches the surface of what's new in 1Password for both iOS and Mac. You can check out all the changes and grab them for half off via the links below. If you grab the update, let me know what you think in the comments!

Help and how to editor for iMore. I can take apart an iPhone in less than 6 minutes. I also like coffee and Harry Potter more than anyone really should.

Sorry Munale! We had to make the jump to iOS 7 eventually. In fact, most of our users wish we jumped sooner :)

Unfortunately the App Store is quite inflexible in this regard so as far as I can tell you cannot purchase the iOS 6 compatible version. Hopefully Apple makes iOS 8 even more amazing than iOS 7 so you will be able to find a way to buy a new device to support it :)

Cheers!

Thanks for the heads up! I want to send it as a gift, but I can only see the option in iTunes for the iOS version. The Mac app store's drop down list doesn't include the gifting option. Anyone know if it's possible to gift Mac apps and how to do it?
Thanks!

You're right, there is no way to directly gift apps in the Mac App Store. It is something I really want Apple to add soon :)

The alternative is to send your friends an iTunes Gift Card which works fine as long as they are in the same country as you.

Cheers!

Hello Dave,

Thanks for responding! Because I've sent two emails to your support address without a reply, I will post my most recent version below in case you are still monitoring this thread.

*****************
I need help with my Family License. I haven’t heard back from you since I sent a message earlier this week, and I want to be more clear about what my situation is:

I already have 1Password installed on my Mac and on my iPhone and iPads. And, of course, I love it! Thanks!

I just purchased the Family License so that 5 family members can enjoy it, too—especially since the Heartbleed crap hit the fan etc. I also purchased the iOS version for them via iTunes gifting.

So, exactly how do I proceed? You instructions below are confusing and I couldn’t get a clear answer on your web site. Please walk me through how to tell them to download the app (3 Macs and 2 PCs) and activate it. I have not clicked on the links [in the receipt meal] because I already have the app installed (making a total of 6 licenses that I’ve purchased). I checked and I do not have a record of my initial purchase and the recent upgrade to v. 4 (in 2013, I believe), and logging in to the web site only shows this week's Family Purchase invoices.

*****************
I would really like my family to begin using 1Password, so I appreciate any help you can provide, thank you!

Hello emjayess,

I'm sorry we haven't gotten back to you sooner. Between Heartbleed breaking the Internet and our simultaneous update for iOS and OS X, we've been quite busy this month. Our average response time has gone from under 24 hours to multiple days; thankfully we are slowly starting to catch up and will restore this standard soon.

You mentioned you sent multiple emails and there's something interesting about this you should know. We respond to emails in the order they arrive but a quirk in the software we use causes additional emails from you to bump you back to the end of the line. It's the exact opposite I want the system to do but we have to live with this at the moment. This would explain why you didn't get a response yet.

In any event, let's get things sorted. Please email me (dave at agilebits dot com) the address you used to contact our team and I'll work around our email softward bug and bump you to the front of the queue.

Cheers!

So you expected them to literally drop everything and fix that when one person brought that to their attention and are hounding them because it wasn't done in one day? This might be a multi-day fix they're actually working on.

I expect a quick response not a fix. It's a password vault. If it leaks passwords then it's a major flaw. One that could end the company's reputation. So far all I've seen is their support staff game their response times by asking a pointless question.
Their support policy states they respond to the forums faster than email to encourage use of the facility that allows other users to self-fix at level 0. I support this idea and am genuinely curious to see this working. However, level 0 for a P1 issue is something that should have been escalated to Level 1 or 2 within hours. I already allowed for the Easter break in my chasing of the issue but the States have been back at the office for over 24 hours now.
By now I would have expected further diagnostics or a request for further information (beyond the trite version number - which was essentially the latest version that was released at the time.
To sum up... I can see my wife's passwords. If you are using this in an office then it's possible your coworkers can see your passwords. So yes actually drop everything.

I would want a fix, above all. Yes a response of "thanks, we're working on it" would be nice, I would prefer the fix to the response.

While I do agree this should be a serious escalation, it is still coming off a Holiday weekend, and they did just push out a huge update. You posting this here and that there probably DID get forwarded immediately on, they probably just did not reply to you. They did need to ask a seemingly "pointless question" because they probably need to pass that on to their team so they know where to start testing that problem. They need to see if it was JUST that version or older or newer ones only.

While I don't care if my husband sees my passwords, in fact, I would like the guy to share the damn app with me so it's easier to get into our shared accounts...I can see why that could be problematic for people who do care and want that separated.

The fix should be more vital than a response. I don't really get your point in demanding an immediate reply as if that repairs the actual issue.

Thank you for your understanding, Ame.

You're very close to the cause of the slowness. We have indeed been stretched thin after these two huge updates to iOS and OS X, and perhaps even more so because of the OpenSSL Heartbleed internet vulnerability which caused a lot of questions. We have a few thousand emails in our inbox right now and we're doing our best to get caught up.

I'm not trying to post this as an excuse; I just thought you'd appreciate some details. So far we have not been able to recreate this issue with Fast User Switching and have asked for more details. Once we can recreate it we'll do our best to fix it as soon as possible.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Cheers!

Thanks for the report, Chris!

I have replied to you in the 1Password Discussions Forum and look forward to working with you to find a solution.

Cheers!

Hi Rich,

We never heard back from you but we never stopped working on trying to find this issue. Rad and Kyle managed to recreate this issue using VNC. Is it possible you were using VNC when you experienced this issue? If so, we have a really nice fix waiting for you in 4.4.2 beta 1.

Please give it a chance and let us know if it works for you. Assuming you are using the webstore version you can enable betas from 1Password's Preferences. If you are using the Mac App Store version, you can download the webstore version from our site and it will automatically find your Mac App Store license.

Cheers!

If you also have a PC be sure to change back to DropBox sync. It seems like they are trying to push us to iCloud sync and ignoring our previous sync preferences.

Even worse, it now seems as if you can only have a single sync source. I've just moved from eWallet because 1Password gave me better options for keeping all my iOS devices and my Windows PC synced without manual intervention. I was using iCloud for my devices and my wife's iPhone and Dropbox for the PC by using my iPhone to keep everything up to date. Now it looks as if I'll either have to keep my iPad on the old version to be the "middle man" or add my Dropbox account to my wife's iPhone. If AgileBits has iCloud syncing in the works for Windows I won't care, but I think it was a bit rude to strip the functionality out without warning while touting all of the "improvements".

You're right, David, we removed the ability to sync to multiple destinations at the same time. Multiple sync sources caused confusion for many users and it made the code a lot more complex as well. It was also slowing us down from adding more sync options.

In the end we decided it would be best for everyone to simply remove the feature. I'm sorry it was a key part of your workflow but it feels like adding Dropbox to your wife's iPhone is the easiest way forward. Another option would be to use separate Dropbox accounts and then use Dropbox's folder sharing feature. When combined with 1Password's Multiple Vaults feature you have a lot of flexibility.

I hope that helps. Feel free to email us at support at agilebits dot com if you have any questions.

Cheers!

I'm sorry for the trouble. We are not forcing you to use iCloud syncing but there was indeed an issue migrating your sync settings from the previous version.

You should simply need to enable Dropbox syncing in the Sync Settings and you should be good to go.
