Could be better - very limited

Interesting functionality, various features
Not powerful enough, old fashioned design, needs to be elaborated
1Password for Android offers just what the name says: the convenience of one master password that is activated with one click, generates high security unique passwords for all your favorite sites, and automatically recalls them for you when needed.
1Password almost sounds too good to be true. I’m no different than anyone else. I want secure passwords, but I also need convenience. But can both truly be had and still be secure? I’m really not sure. I seem to change my mind on this all the time. To me, convenience seems less secure, just in principal. What if your one master password is compromised? Then what? ALL of your passwords are also compromised. That hardly seems smart, and yet the lure of convenience remains.
Security Note – this app disables screenshots for security purposes so I had to use another device to take a picture of this app as it functioned on another. So some of the pics may not be that great, but I wanted to share as many views as possible.
Security concerns and paranoia aside, liked this app overall. The menus are simple and clean; almost too clean really. There’s not much going on here. I do think the lock and unlock animation is cool It looks like a door lock keyhole and rotates to depict the lock/unlock state. Once inside though, the app is very sparse, which really did little to make me feel secure. The app can automatically lock your device after a set time of inactivity. You can save favorite sites, autofill setting and passwords easily. The interface could certainly be contemporized and more could be done in terms of innovation[/justify. All the data can be synced to a PC or Mac. Or, you could just put pen to paper. I know that's a little old fashioned for some, but it seems more secure.
1Password is a decent password app. But I still have serious issues with the whole idea. But everyone is going to have to make that call for themselves. I think if you’re intent on going this route, LastPass is a better alternative.
