In the demo that Agile Web Solutions’ Dave Teare gave me, this feature worked really well for filling forms on the iPhone. Like 1Password itself, it made me ask “why didn’t Apple do this itself?” The bookmarklet was snappy, and filling forms seemed about as instant as it could be. Even if most users don’t have multiple accounts for many sites, MobileSafari’s flaky cache and cookie management makes this feature incredibly appealing. As for when the new version that can create this bookmarklet ships, Teare’s hoping to add the polishing touches and get it out within the week.
In addition to current features like working with nearly any browser you can throw at it (including NetNewsWire and even Flock), saving/filling identity and even credit card information (securely and encrypted, of course), and creating multi-account bookmarklets for web sites, 1Password will likely sell a good number of licenses based on this feature alone. In fact, 1Password typically sells for $29.95 on its own, but it’s also bundled in MacHeist II for another week, making it a no-brainer if you need just one or two other apps in the collection.
Of course, you’ll probably want to try 1Password before you buy it from any store, so you can pick up a copy at Agile Web Solutions’ download page. 1Password requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or 10.5 Leopard.
