Based on feedback from users, developer AgileBits has just released a major update to its 1Password app. If you haven’t heard of 1Password, I can easily describe it as the Swiss Army Knife for your digital life. The app stores all of your passwords and can even keep safe other information like credit card numbers, bank account information, and more. Here’s the complete list of new features and improvements in version 4.2 from the release notes:
1BrowserA universal app for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, 1Password can be downloaded in the App Store now for $17.99. While 1Password has been a fixture in the App Store for some time, AgileBits did a complete revamp of the app with the introduction of 1Password 4. Hitting the App Store in late December, the new version featured an attractive new interface to go along with its 256-bit AES encryption. It was also named one of our 10 Best Paid iPhone Apps Of 2012. AgileBits also recently released a full list of 1Password compatible apps.
