1Password beta: Secure name and password filling for iPhone's Safari
Merlin Mann | Jan 31 2008
Babies, iPhones and very-high-security passwords can be a bitter cocktail; it's really hard to enter a 28-character/mixed-case/special character password on the iPhone while you're holding 15 lbs. of undulating infant. Trust me.
So, if you caught video of my recent interview with Agile Web Solutions' Dave Teare, you could see how excited I was to learn about a then-upcoming beta which would support autofill name- and password-entering via secure bookmarklets on your iPhone. Well, the day has arrived, and, brother, am I ever loving this.
From Dave's post on the company's blog:
Dave tells me via email that the hosting service he'd mentioned in our interview is still being planned, but, personally I'm thrilled that this "just works" out of the box as well as it does from this first cut. I have seen a few problems in 1P seeming not to remember a login associated with a site, but more often than not, it's been just spot-on -- even when entered with my one, daughter-free hand.
Anyhow, check 'er out. 1Password is shareware ($29.95) and a free download. The updated functionality appears to start with version 2.5.10 (build 6102).
One of my favorite Mac apps just made life a lot easier for iPhone users.
