Works really well. - An option is needed to force the app to hide or unload after a certain amount of time. On occasion, I will sit down in a coffee shop, open the clamshell,and suddenly realise that I didn't close the app from the last usage and it is still sitting there available for anyone to read or dump. Other than that, it is really handy with the copy and paste function for passwords and I am now using gigantic strings of obscure passwords on all my sites. ----------------- Update for version 1.2.0 Hey, the developers even respond to suggestions! How unusual is that? The problem of leaving your PW manager open on your laptop to be stolen is fixed. That was the only criticism I had for this app. However, since I began using it to maintain huge strings of uncrackable passwords, I have found other uses for it. One being to keep my credit card number so it can be used on line while leaving the real card safely at home. And for storing seldom used but vital information like pin numbers, lock combinations and other app registration numbers. Even health ID numbers and insurance IDs that might (hopefully not) be needed on the road. (You don't really carry those actual cards on you, I hope.) Great app, and cheap at a lot higher price. Don't forget to back up the file to a safe place now and again. --------------- Another need that has come to light is an option for passwords to show asterisks instead of plain text. It is amazing how many shoulder surfers you can run into in a public area. No matter how fast you are, there is a finite time between clicking on the Site Name, then the Copy Password, then Hide. It is very uncomfortable thinking that your online bank ID and Password are on full display for someone's cell phone video camera - or even that person's good memory.
