Wi-Fi syncing, new Web browser options added in '1Password' for iOS update

Following the recent release of 1Password 4 for Mac, developer AgileBits on Monday released an accompanying point update for the iOS version of its popular password storage and digital wallet software, restoring features like Wi-Fi syncing and fixing multiple compatibility issues.

1Password


With today's update, 1Password for iOS hit version 4.3, bringing a host of bug fixes, a new Web browser selection feature and better compatibility with the app's Mac client.

One of the most substantial additions is the ability to change the built-in browser's user-agent from the default "1Browser" to Safari, Chrome or Firefox. The new option is meant to help users having trouble with webpages or sites that may not load when opened from within 1Password.

Among the fixes is restored Wi-Fi syncing between the iOS and Mac versions of the app. When AgileBits released 1Password 4 for Mac last week, cross-platform syncing was deactivated, limiting users to hardwired data transfer or cloud-based methods via Dropbox and iCloud. Along with the return of Wi-Fi syncs, custom icons added to saved passwords on the Mac version now appear correctly with 1Password for iOS.

As for iOS 7 support, the latest app version brings improved initial iCloud sync performance, faster search speeds and the ability to receive diagnostic information in the form of an email.

Bug fixes account for most of the changes made to 1Password, however, and include:
  • Fixed visual issues with search results on iOS 7.
  • Fixed bug that where 1Password process did not terminate after Erase Data.
  • Fixed problem where iCloud sync did not start automatically on the initial launch.
  • Fixed bug where it was not possible to change the name of an item.
  • Fixed sorting and indentation of folders when viewing them in the popover.
  • Fixed crash when using voice over and generate password.
  • Fixed crash when syncing with Dropbox.
  • Fixed problem where sync status would always be shown at the very beginning for a few seconds when switching to the settings view.
1Password for iOS version 4.3 comes in at 24.8MB and can be purchased for $17.99 from the App Store. Existing users can download the app for free.

    No affiliation: This is one of the best apps I've bought. It really keeps my PW's organized and easy to access on my devices.

    Hey my app has been updated to fix incompatibility issues too. How is this news? Every app is dealing with the fallout of iOS 7.

    Except no one actually wants your app, I think that's the difference...

    See, the road train that is Mavericks is coming up swiftly in the rear view mirror. This is their last hurrah before being run over.

    All we need now is from Apple to release an API that allow us to unlock 1Password (and other apps with passwords) using Touch ID. I love 1Password but I hate typing my LONG password every I need to use it.

    Ha ha.  You mean 1Password is actually worse than Evernote's IOS 7 train wreck.  That's impressive.

    Or just use Apple’s own password system.

    Yep, the one that will be turned back on in the next two weeks and sync across all of Apple’s things, yep.

    Yep. The one that don't exist yet and can't use it until it is turned back on. So yep.. I have been using 1Password for years now and will keep using it (across Apple things and more).

    Works for me. Right now. And will work the day of Mavericks’ launch. 



    You’d put up with crap even when a better solution exists simply because it doesn’t exist right now? Suit yourself; ignorance is bliss.

    So you have iCloud keychain syncing between you Mac running Mountain Lion and iOS 7 devices right now?

     

    Anyways, 1Password is more than just place to save your passwords.

    You are using it on OS7 public release right now?

    How do you check or edit password/account data, look for duplicate passwords, etc?

    Look, no one thinks iCloud Keychain is pointless or gimmicky. It's great Apple has created this built-in solution for the less than vigilant user (which are the majority of users) but those that have willingly paid for 1Password for years now are accustomed to more features, more security, and, frankly, better security options than what iCloud Keychain offers today.

    So’s iCloud Keychain.

    Keychain Access, just like you’d do without it.

    Where are my CC info stored? How about my security questions and answers? What about all the other useful features? This looks like the same Keychain UI and DB we've had for years.

    When it comes to fingerprint identification, we're pretty excited to see what the future holds. :) http://discussions.agilebits.com/discussion/15663/will-1password-work-with-the-iphone-5s-fingerprint...
