Popular and powerful password management app 1Password has just been updated to version 5.1 with a number of new features and improvements.
The app is now optimized for the larger screens of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which should make images and text a lot less blurry.
Developer AgileBits has also improved the Touch ID and PIN Code security features. The auto-lock timeout will now function across both the master password and Touch ID/PIN Code. That should help remove some confusion.
Users can also select to enable third-party keyboards with the app. They can enable or disable the functionality in the Advanced Settings menu.
A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, 1Password can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
The pro upgrade can be unlocked with a one-time in-app purchase of $9.99. Some of those features include multiple/shared vaults and the ability to organize your data into folders or browse by tags.
Version 5.0 landed in mid-September to complement iOS 8. Along with Touch ID support and going to a freemium model, 1Password now takes advantage of app extensions. It received an Honorable Mention nod in our AppAdvice App of the Week awards shortly after its release.
