    Default Password Management App that runs on both iPhone & OS X

    Hi all,

    I am after a Password Management app that runs on BOTH iPhone and on a Mac and SYNC with each other.

    Search didn't help...

    If you know such an app... please let me know.

    The only one i found was SplashID (in the app store). They have a desktop client you can download which apparently syncs with the iphone.

    I haven't got the iphone - so haven't been able to test yet :-)

    no problems, I'm stilling looking for a way to transistion my windows password manager to apple & iphone. I've been using codewallet for sometime (since win mobile days) and its going to be a pain re-entering the data!..

    The splashid will allow you to store all sorts of confidential data such as credit card, account, licence, password details, etc.. whereas 1 password appears to be more useful for autofilling of web based passwords/forms and more convienent on iphone as it still doesn't have copy/paste.

    cheers

    Thanks Tim. 1Password looks pretty decent ...just what I've been looking for. Did use SplashID when I had an old Palm V and it was a bit awkward back then. Upgraded to a Palm Treo 650 (and then 755p) and went over to Passwords Plus from Dataviz. It works really well, and syncs beautifully - but they don't have plans for an iPhone version and I'm lost without my passwords.
    Thanks again Tim.

    I've been using 1Password iPhone version quite regularly lately, synced with hundreds of passwords, serials and secure notes on my 1Password desktop version.

    So far so good, the experience has been generally good for me, and its one of my most used apps too.

    Default Password Plus won't export

    Looks like I was a little too hasty when I said Passwords Plus was really good. I've download 1Password for my Mac but when I select export from Passwords Plus nothing happens. Well, the warning comes up saying the exported csv file is not encrypted, after clicking that it gives the save name/folder options, then clicking save it goes away and then nothing happens. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this. I'm just shy of 200 passwords so I don't want to re-enter them all. But I will if need be as 1Password (in my opinion) has features that blow Password Plus out of the water.

    Never mind. 1Password provided a work around to my Password Plus export problem. 1Password enables stored password imports from Safari and Firefox - and ignores duplicates - so between those two I've got 99% of my passwords.

    I got 1 password after it was plugged on the podcast, have to say it's one of the best pieces of software I have used so far.

    I wholly agree Nick. I've now completed the set up of 1Password and migration from my old program. The number of things that amazed me as I explored the program were numerous. From the menu bar item in each browser I use to the WiFi sync - all as simple as a Mac should be. Very impressive software.

    I was disappointed after trying e wallet, it doesn't have a desktop version (except for PC's) I have Passwords Plus, but it doesn't have an iPhone version.
    1Password seems to be for webpages only, can't see how it can work for storing bank account numbers etc.

    So really, pretty bad bunch so far...I'll have a look at splashID

    Regarding 1Password, I assume you do not have the desktop version of 1Password?

    The Bank Account numbers can be stored in 1Password, though not from the iPhone app itself -- has to be done via the desktop app and synced to the iPhone/iPod touch.

    I've usedeWallet, Passwords Plus and SplashID and am now a happy 1Password user. 1Password exceeds the others by far. It does bank accounts and anything else I can think of. Maybe download the demo version and try it out. I think you'll be impressed.

    I just encountered the same problem (nothing happened) when trying to export from Password Plus. I tried, and couldn't do the backup function from Password Plus either. Visited DataViz support site, and learned that the latest version of Password Plus is 1.007. I was on 1.005. Downloaded update, and export worked perfectly. Import to 1Password worked perfectly as well. With 200+ files on my Password Plus, I am _very_ relieved!

    I use Wallet. Started using it before I was aware of 1Password. The one feature it hasn't got (saving website passwords and having them available in your browser), I've found I never use anyway (Having 1Password as well)...

    Wallet keeps my bank details, passwords, software licence keys etc all safe and sound, and syncs with my iphone too.
