Users proclaim 1Password as one of the best Mac utilities ever made, and that joy has rightfully spread to the iPhone/iPod touch and more recently, the iPad, Windows and even Android. The desktop version just got a major new update with a long list of great new features, capped by using Dropbox to sync between the different versions.
Agile Web Solutions announced late Thursday that 1Password 3.3 is now an official release. In addition to adding support for recent Firefox 4 betas and subtle new features such as French localization, the desktop and iOS Pro version now can all sync data using a free Dropbox account.
“1Password 3.3 added tighter integration with Dropbox to enable automatic syncing between Mac, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Windows,” Agile’s website explains. “Also known as ‘syncing to the cloud,’ this amazing feature allows you to keep your Macs, Windows, and iOS devices in sync at all times, even when they are running on different networks. To enable syncing, simply configure 1Password to store its data file in Dropbox. See Configuring Dropbox for details.”
The desktop version of 1Password has long supported saving its data to Dropbox in order to sync between computers, while the mobile versions have had to content with a workable but clumsy Wi-Fi sync. iOS users with the universal 1Password Pro app now have the choice to keep that Wi-Fi sync or use the much friendlier Dropbox sync, which promises to keep all versions of 1Password in sync without having to even think about it.
If you’re not familiar with 1Password yet, the $39.95 desktop version interacts with your web browser (Safari, Firefox or Chrome) to remember all of your passwords, login information and even web identities and wallet information such as credit cards, driver’s licenses, passports, reward cards and much more. A free trial is available on Agile’s website so you can try it before you buy.
If you already have 1Password installed on your Mac, chances are you may already see an update available, otherwise you can download the new 3.3 version on their website and get syncing!
