1Password Touch Pro

Filed under: Mobile Apps,News — sinodux @ 08:50

1Password is possibly the best application ever written if you work for a company who has no idea how to create and manage internal website. The “touch” app is the application for the iPhone and I also recommend this just because password kicks so much butt and it syncs so nicely you never actually need to manage the passwords on your phone. If you don’t have this app for you Mac yet you should consider getting it.

Recently I noticed there was a “Pro” version out for the iPhone and it was $1 more than the regular version that I already owned. Did I need to rebuy the app for a dollar more? It kind of irritated me there isn’t an upgrade path, inherently a flaw in the Apple store in my opinion but that is a different story. I went and checked it out and at first blush it didn’t seem to offer me more than improved Safari integration. While that would be nice not worth $6 unless I just wanted to support company, which I was tempted to do.

Something still didn’t ring true to me so now today a few days later I went and looked again. Why is a company as cool as Agile Web Solutions fooling around with a Pro version that doesn’t really offer any value, to me in a significant way anyway, and charging for a full app again. The long and short of it is they aren’t. The Pro version is still in development and will have more features like search, folders, Sync with WebDAV the article is here. Pricing is also their plan for an upgrade path of sorts. They figure the people who are willing to buy now are the ones who are diehard fans that already see value in the app so they are offering it for $6 once the app is complete the price will be $15. Given their history they won’t flip flop to much once the price once it goes up.

  2. The Agile people are top notch. 1Password for the desktop, and my iPhone are in my top 5 most used applications. The Agile folks are also very generous with their app, and offer free serial numbers quite a bit for existing owners to hand out to anyone.
