Keep all of your sensitive information in one place

If your looking for an app to keep your passwords, serial numbers, bank information and just about anything in one place this may be what your looking for. The interface is very intuitive and the features are outstanding like the ability to generate passwords, launch websites and the ease to organize your information. I wanted the database to sync with my laptop so I just moved the database folder from the user library to my dropbox folder and it worked fine. Definitely worth the ten dollars.

Good App But Somewhat Buggy

This is a good app to have your confidential information stored in one place. It becomes more useful when you also use the iPhone/iPad apps to keep the information sync'd across all of your devices. It's not cheap, but considering I'm keeping all the data sync'd with my wife's iMac, iPhone and iPad along with my MBA, iPhone and iPad, I think it's not a bad deal.

It makes sense to have all your CC numbers with their contact info, all of your passwords, ID info (passport, driver's license, etc.), serial numbers, and similar data in one place and secure with military grade encryption instead of having that scattered in different places and not secure - like a list on a spreadsheet. I like customizability of the app but it has a few annoying bugs and I'm not sure if that has to do with the recent upgrade to Mountain Lion.

I'm using my MBA to enter all the data and then sync to all the other devices and the iMac at home. Based on some reviews I've read (mainly the iOS apps), I'm not willing to "experiment" entering data on the iOS devices. This is one of those things where you just enter the data once (and update every once in a while) and be able to access it for some emergency occasion, which one hopes doesn't happen.

I recommend the app but be prepared to deal with some bugs - like entering dates that pop up on the wrong fields and stuff like that. The cost of the Mac app and sync feature is somewhat on the steep side and I believe that it only becomes redeemed when you have six devices sharing the same info. I was somewhat dismayed by the $9.99 cost for the sync feature, but once I got my wife's devices all sync'd with mine, it didn't hurt as much.

Terrible, Buggy, Sync works sometimes

Terrible. Overpriced. Sync does not work well. Spending $9.99 for sync support gets you a buggy piece of software that works only sometimes. Do not waste time and money on this.
