Well, we know what happened to Palm! But instead of abandoning Passwords Plus, I continued to store sensitive information in the desktop version and then export the data to a pdf file that I could put on my new mobile devices. Not the most elegant solution but at least it was something!
Just a few months ago Passwords Plus finally released a new version that runs on iOS! In the old days, Passwords Plus used to cost a pretty penny—I can’t remember the exact amount but for some reason $29.99 comes to mind. The new version costs $1.99!!!! Take a look:
If you’re not sure why you would pay for a password manager when there are several free alternatives then read on. Passwords Plus is much more than a passwords manager. In fact, it doesn’t even integrate with browsers to automatically fill in website usernames and passwords. It’s more about the Plus! It really is a quick database app than can store all sorts of information. Yes, passwords are important, but imagine how much more information you would like at your fingertips but want no one else to see. That is the power of Passwords Plus!
It has many templates available so setting up the database is quick and easy.
Pick the appropriate template and off you go! You can even customize each template after launching it.
Going back to my Palm days, syncing was always an adventure. Now, Passwords Plus will sync your data to its secure servers and then all your devices will have the updated info. In addition, it will sync to the desktop version as well.
Passwords Plus is available in the Apple App Store at $1.99. In addition, Windows users can download the free desktop version here. Even though this is an iOS app, unfortunately at this time there is no Mac desktop version. I’m hoping that they will be working on an Android version but for now I’ve installed the new Passwords Plus on my iPad, laptop and desktop.
Happy Days are here again!
