Version 1.1.1
Review by costmo

Hands down, the best of its kind - If you care about the security of your information, this THE password manager to get. Period. I was a die-hard user of STRIP for Palm, but had been more or less forced to settle for other options in the transition to Windows mobile, and then iOS. I had not switched back to STRIP until very recently due to the lack of a Mac Desktop application. I probably wouldn't have switched back if it weren't for the fact that the competition -- although prettier to look at -- is riddled with bugs and various annoyances. Besides that, the other companies seem to be very arrogant and give off an attitude that tells me that they view their customers as a nuisance. SplashID and 1Password are the solutions that I gave a serious run at being my password manager of choice -- having purchased and used each on my desktop and iOS devices for many months. If there is any negative in switching to STRIP, it's that it isn't quite as pretty as the others. Putting that aside, Zetetic writes killer software. What they write, it is obvious that they write well, and their passion for the finer details of what it takes to have the ultimate in function is apparent in their writing about the details of the technology that their programs use in their company literature and blogs. Case in point: The "Shake-N-Make" password generator in iOS uses your device accelerometer to add environmental variables for entropy to the random number generator when passwords are generated. In short, if you want anything that approaches real randomness from a computing device, this is it. If your primary concern is eye candy, this may not be the one for you. If you want great software written by a company that has an expressed passion for having the most secure and functional password manager, look no further -- STRIP is for you.

Cant sync with iPhone - Be careful with this app. I was not able to login or sync with my phone once I bought it. Have been back and forth with tec support for 2 weeks but they are unable to solve the problem also. Save your 10.00
