Ascendo's DataVault Password Manager, a universal app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad has just received a gigantic, Fort Knox-style update. It already stored all your web logins and credit card and bank account info with power and style but now adds the advanced sync and backup features to match.

With optional Windows and Mac desktop clients, if you're still looking for the perfect mobile password manager, checkout Data
