Review: Passwords v1.05 by Absolute Apps

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.

I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
