Passwords ($4) is an app that is designed to perform the single purpose of storing passwords. No custom item types or fields are supported, with each entry simply being a site name, user name, password, and some free-form notes. Items may be organized into a single level of groups, and initial groups are provided for home, school, work and other. Additional categories may be added, but once added you’re stuck with them—they cannot be removed or renamed.

No integrated browser is provided. Instead clicking on a URL will simply exit Passwords and open the web page in Safari, where of course no password reference or web form filling is available.

As a free app, this one would possibly be worthwhile for those who simply need to organize basic information, but with a $4 price tag the extremely limited functionality it provides is disappointing. iLounge Rating: D.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
