If you’ve been holding out on purchasing Agile Bits’ popular 1Password app due to price tag, you may want to pay attention. In wake of the nasty Heartbleed bug that has compromised millions and millions of usernames and passwords this week, the developers have decided to discount both Mac and iOS versions of the app by 50%…

These two apps have received numerous awards over the years, and are very highly regarded in the Mac/iOS community. There’s no telling how long the sale will last, but we imagine it’ll at least go through the weekend. Even if you don’t pickup the apps, though, we still recommend that you familiarize yourself with the Heartbleed bug.
