Popular iOS and Mac application 1Password is already available for Android, but if you view the screenshots on Google Play, you may come away horrified. The app’s UI appears to be from the Gingerbread days, and an update is desperately needed.
Thankfully, the application’s developer, Agile Bits, announced that an update is set to hit Google Play on June 10. The update is a completely rewritten version of the application, complete with new UI, features, and more.
1Password allows users to securely store all of their protected information in one place, ending the worry that many people have of losing or forgetting passwords. The following line is from the app’s description on iTunes. “1Password creates strong, unique passwords for every site, remembers them all for you, and logs you in with a single tap. It’s the best way to stay secure and the fastest way to use the web.”
Stated in the press release, the new and improved 1Password will be launched free for a little while, then will switch to feature IAPs for pro options.
It is an entirely new and full-featured app, built for both phones and tablets!
It is also an experiment. All new features will be unlocked and free for everyone to use through August 1, 2014. After that, 1Password 4 for Android will go into a reader mode, and all features can be unlocked for an in-app purchase.
When it hits Google Play on June 10, we will let you know.
