Review: Passwords v1 by

Passwords ($1) is another small app with a non-distinct name that is again designed with the single purpose of storing web site passwords on your iPhone. Like its identically-named counterpart, Passwords contains only fields for a web site URL, username and password.

Further, like the other Passwords app, no integrated browser is included. Instead a rather prominent “Open in Safari” button is provided on the detail screen to allow you to open the present link in the iPhone’s MobileSafari browser. Note as well that there are no fields for notes or even an actual title for each entry—the URL is the title in this case.

At $1 it could almost be considered reasonable except for the rather unpleasant user interface, and the fact that you cannot actually edit existing entries at all—you can only delete them and then re-create them from scratch. iLounge Rating: D.
