1Password 4.5 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 002)

Developer AgileBits today pushed a long expected update to its password-management app for iOS, 1Password. The new 1Password version 4.5 includes an all-new clean design on the iPhone and iPad created with iOS 7 in mind and a couple new features.

Billed as “our biggest free update for iOS ever”, the new 1Password includes support for multiple vaults, lets you share items securely using the iOS AirDrop feature, sync vaults via multiple Dropbox accounts and more.

Moreover, you’ll enjoy a new unified AutoFill tool found in the in-app browser, a streamlined search field that’s always where you need it and other new features, refinements and under-the-hood changes. Existing users can pick up this update free

This is the new app icon.

Search in 1Password is now always accessible at the top of the Categories tab and each main category, like Logins, Secure Notes and so forth.

You can now create multiple vaults with 1Password 4 for Mac or Windows and switch between them in Settings, which developers say is “great for securely sharing items with team members or family, or simply for your own organization.”

You can also sync vaults that are shared from different Dropbox accounts.

Folks new to the app used to start with a Demo Mode to check out all the features using a sample database. Now known as Demo Vault, it’s found in Settings > Vaults.

Similar to the old mode, Demo Vault adds demo information as a secondary vault to demonstrate 1Password without revealing all your personal information.

The revamped app supports custom item images added via 1Password 4 for Mac and introduces support for tags. “Any tags you add to items in 1Password for Mac and Windows now appear next to your folders on iOS,” notes AgileBits.

For the sake of clarity, the Folders tab on iPhone is now called Organize. And similar to 1Password mini on the Mac, your AutoFill Logins, Identities and Credit Cards are now all under the same button in 1Browser.

Privacy-minded users will be delighted to know that 1Password now lets you use your PIN code across launches of the app. And, 1Browser now asks you to permit it to open non-http and non-https URLs, such as FaceTime call prompts.

The official changelog lists key highlights:

Awesome Little Circular Progress Indicator in 1Browser – For your page loading pleasure.

Tags join the party – Any tags you add to items in 1Password for Mac and Windows now appear next to your folders on iOS! Tag on.

Speaking of languages, you can now change 1Password’s language settings in-app.
New user setup process is new – We made it even easier and clearer to get started with 1Password.

For those upgrading from 1Password 3 for iOS, the import process is much improved.
1Password is now 34% smaller – if you’ve been short 8.6MB of space on your device, we got you covered!

If you create multiple vaults with 1Password 4 for Mac (Windows coming soon!), you can now add them to 1Password for iOS and switch between them in Settings. Great for securely sharing items with coworkers or family, or simply for your own organization!

Multiple Dropbox accounts – Have more than one Dropbox account? Great! You can now sync vaults shared via different Dropbox accounts.

This is what the new UI looks on an iPad.

“The list of apps that support 1Password now include everything from newsreaders, to finance managers, and even a beer diary,” developers remark. Check out the AgileBits website for a handy list of supported apps.

Celebrating today’s update, AgileBits said that all versions of 1Password are now available half price through Friday.

If you were eyeing 1Password, now’s the time to pick it up in the App Store for just $8.99, a cool 50 percent discount on its regular asking price of $17.99.

The Mac edition has also been revamped and bumped up to version 4.3 today.

You can get 1Password 4.3 for Mac for $24.99 in the Mac App Store – again 50 percent off through Friday.

    It’s about time. It’s been weird using that iOS 6 keyboard to login.

  • Bruno Pinto

    Well, I like the iOs version and Mac version, but please please AgileBits do something about the Android version.
    Release a proper version on Android: user are willing to pay for good software !

    • Nicolas Cage

      Android sucks

      • Bruno Pinto

        Of course it sucks, but some people are forced to use it… and just saying it sucks is not very productive. If they release an Android version (new one), one should expect the quality of their iOS releases…

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        If they released a full version for Android I suppose it would be like what Steve Jobs said about iTunes on Windows “Like giving someone in hell a glass of water”…

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      “user are willing to pay for good software !”

      Which is exactly why Android has the highest piracy rates of any mobile OS isn’t it?

  • Linton Findlay

    compatible with 1Pal?

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      It works with iTouchSecure so probably is compatible…

  • JS3

    until this supports (if ever) 3rd party apps i cant see myself using this… i rarely ever use web browsing for anything really… maybe a google search here and there, like the saying goes “there’s an app for that” lol so…. but for a mac this would be great!

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      How could real 3rd party app support work though (work without some intervention from Apple)? I don’t think sending passwords or responses via an application callback URL would be very secure…

  • Leever

    Looks very good.. One of my favourite apps on my phone.

  • Tom

    I this app worth buying it?

    • Horribly overpriced. Wouldn’t know a proper alternative though since Apple failed to incorporate iCloud keychain properly. (on iOS that is)

  • Jeff Ramirez

    I’ve got a white iPhone 5 and I gotta say, they made the status bar really hard to see. Or is it just me?

    • Leever

      I’ve seen other apps as well that have this problem, some are even worst (black)…

      • Jonathan

        Did you install StatusBarFix 2?

    • Jonathan

      Do you have StatusBarFix 2?

      • Jeff Ramirez

        No I don’t. Then again I’m not jailbroken. Wish I was now, because I’ve been talking to the 1P devs and it’s the first time they’re seeing this..

      • Jonathan

        Oh. If you’re not jailbroken, then there’s no need for that, therefore the apps fault.
        Hm. Weird.

      • Hak Attack

        Actually if you look at the screenshots on the post, it shows a black status bar. It could relate to the color of the phone (highly doubt it though).

      • Jonathan

        No, they couldn’t have Photoshopped it. :/

  • AnArcticMonkey

    I can’t wait until iOS 8 when they “rebuild the app from the ground up” and charge another $18

    • Steve R.

      iOS 8 will mostly just be an improvement upon iOS 7, so it’s doubtful they would make you pay again.

      • AnArcticMonkey

        It was a joke at how they “rebuilt” their app for iOS 7 which was just a few design changes, and then removed features from the iOS <7 version of the app.

    I love this app! I migrated to it last week from Roboform. The ease of organizing, analyzing, and searching through passwords let me to clean up duplicate, obsolete, and incorrect login information that was many years old. It’s a work in progress, but smart folders feature is making it easy to keep track of my progress.
