1Password 4 for Mac hasn't long been with us, but the folks at Agilebits are now pushing out version 4.1, something they're calling "the little big update." Top of the order is something they've wanted to include for sometime:
1Password 4 for Mac is now live and available. The popular OS X security application was updated this morning, and completely rewritten with a simple new interface and a host of new features. You can now set up multiple vaults that can be shared with family members or coworkers, and each vault gets their own sync preferences. You can even set up a demo vault to show off 1Password to others. Open the demo vault from the app's lock screen with the password "demo". Switch between vaults by tapping the keyhole icon next to 1Password's traffic lights. You can also share individual items.
1Password needs little introduction really, it's one of our absolute favorite apps for iOS to keep your passwords strong and secure. It isn't the lowest priced app you'll come across, though – you pay for what you get mind – but Agilebits is known for frequent sales helping folks get in for less.
AgileBits has released new details about 1Password 4 for Mac. Some new features bound for the desktop app this fall come directly from the iOS app, including iCloud syncing. You can now mark certain logins as favorites and store multiple logins for the same website. The browser extension has been redone, having be rewritten in Cocoa.
1Password 4 is one of our absolute favorite security apps, and for a limited time the developer Agilebits is putting the iOS version of the app on sale with a massive 55% price reduction. The app, which usually runs for $17.99 can now be had for just $7.99.
1Password for Mac and iOS is hands down one of the best password managers around, and now it's on sale at half price! If you've been contemplating picking it up, but perhaps didn't fancy the price, now would be a great time to get it.
Guy and Rene talk to Dave Teare, co-founder of Agile Bits and co-developer of 1Password for Mac, iOS, and pretty damn near everywhere else, about project management, killing features, customer support, the challenges of going cross-platform, and the motivational value of coding Java for HP.
