By far best keypass-compatible OS X client - I’ve been trying to use the free solutions (KeePassX, which was “ok”), but finally bit the bullet and bought Kypass Companion when I got my new mac. It was money well spent. It just works - slurps up my database, works like I expect *including* with keepasshttp (very important to me), fast, straightforward UI - totally great. Nitpicks: It would be nice if it could disappear to the menu bar at the top (and not take up space in the dock), and with all due respect, boring icon. But - if those are the big complaints, you are doing really well. I have had *one* crash, so there may be some stability issues, but I relaunched and was back in business 2 seconds later. Keep up the good work. Update: A feature I miss is database merging. I have my keepass database saved on a shared drive - it would be nice if when I saved and a newer version of the database is there if it would merge the two (deleting duplicates, of course). The regular Keepass for windows does this, as does KeePassX, so I kinda got used to it. Please?
Even worse…. - My original review was 2 stars in hopes that several glaring bugs could be fixed, unfortunately the new version doesn't seem to have fixed any, and has added new even more annyoing bugs. For example, we can now auto-lock the password file after 5 minutes of inactivity (default), but even though there is a checkbox to disable that, it gets rechecked as soon as you close the Preferences window. The "support" site is a joke, at best, and for $7.99 seeing *more* bugs with each release just isn't acceptable. Save your money if you haven't bought this yet, and wait for some bug fixes to be confirmed, or wait for the author to reprice at something reasonable for the current version - $0.99 perhaps.

Really good now - This product has been refined and improved to the point where it is clearly stable and works very well. I use it exclusively on my Mac for all my passwords, and I’m very delighted with how it works. The author keeps improving this app and it’s really very good for accessing keepass compatible databases (these work on PC’s as well as Macs and iOS). It’s very reliable, although it lacks the automatic features of some passwork keepers, it doesn’t screw up or lose things on me. And I don’t think this is as open to large scale hacks as the more commercial apps, because they don’t keep a copy of your data.
Support?? - I like the application and have used it on a PC where it has more functionality. I sent a question to support a week ago and have yet to get an answer. So while the application is okay, but lacks some functionality (like ordering/indexing groups), and if you’re looking for good support, you may want to look elsewhere. I’m disapointed.
