pwSafe for iOS updated with Smart Pasteboard to make inputting passwords easier than ever

pwSafe is a password management suite for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The new update brings a feature called Smart Pasteboard which aims to simplify the process of entering passwords without having to use an in-app browser at all. Just copy the information once from pwSafe, enter your usename, and tilt your phone. Your password is copied instantly.

Smart Pasteboard functions by copying both your username and password in one go from pwSafe. Once you've done that, jump right back into Safari for iOS and copy your username. Tilt your phone upside down and pwSafe then toggles to your password so you don't have to jump back into pwSafe in order to copy the second part. This eliminates the amount of usernames you actually have to type and the amount of times you have to switch between apps for long logins.

For those not familiar with pwSafe already, it works much the same way that you'd expect any password manager to work. One thing I particularly have liked about pwSafe in the past is that you can have multiple safes saved in different locations. If you have local passwords on your Mac that you don't need on iOS, you can keep a separate vault. Want a different safe for work items than individual ones? You can do that too. You can even save them in different locations if you'd like when it comes to iCloud, Dropbox, or locally.

For those that already own pwSafe, the update will be free. If you happen to check out the update, let us know what you think in the comments below!
