Great interview from Erik Fisher. It offers a look at the challenges of the modern productivity space while spotlighting the ways it can still help those who are struggling to get things done.
Who is it for? Those looking to share passwords from their 1Password account with others. And if you’re not using 1Password or something like it to manage your passwords, you need to start now.
The newly released 1Password 4.2 for iOS boasts a better internal browser and improved search, but it’s the sharing that has us excited:
You can now share 1Password items from Vault Mode via Messages and email in either an obfuscated format or plain text. Your lucky recipient will see an “Add to 1Password” link, and I recommend they tap it; makes the whole process pretty easy.
By the way, here’s a ProTip about sharing: if you use the obfuscated option to share items, the item’s ID is included. This means that, if you share an item and your recipient makes an update—such as add to a Secure Note or update a Login’s password—then shares it back to you, 1Password will actually update your current copy of the item with the changes.
Just be sure to share with care. Using the obfuscated option means anyone with a copy of 1Password for iOS could add it to their library (since we’re using a shared key for these items, it could also be reverse engineered). Make sure you trust your recipient(s) to keep those messages private and, even better, delete them as soon as they’re done.
As David Sparks points out, the sharing is going to make it far easier to keep things in sync with significant others.
