New version for 1Password on iOS

It’s not compatible with KeePass, but congratulations to AgileBits on the new version of 1Password for iOS. They’re having a sale at the App Store- $8 instead of the normal $18 (they haven’t announced when the sale will end).

I used to use 1Password on Windows, Mac, and iOS but have switched back to the KeePass system. But 1Password is very nice.

I have made a new, better chart of the various KeePass-compatible apps:

KeePass on iOS (iPhone & iPad) comparison

Quck and dirty comparison of iOS apps (iPhone & iPad) that have some level of compatibility with KeePass.

For info about KeePass see: http://keepass.info

Here are the existing iOS apps in the App Store at this time, plus comments.

For all, it is assumed they:

  • read, write, and create both v1 and v2 KeePass databases
  • are closed source
  • work with  DropBox (requires manual syncing)
  • can search

See comments in chart for exceptions, and please note that most of this information is taken from the vendor’s own claims. There may be many errors on the chart, please leave a comment on this page to suggest updates.
