What’s New

Version 3.1.2

Thanks to everyone who sent in feedback over the last few weeks! Today's update is a relatively minor one, but hey, every bit counts! Let's discuss.

• Minimalist has always had the ability to re-order custom fields within custom sections, however there was no way to re-order the sections themselves. That is until now! You can now re-order entire sections by selecting "Re-order Sections" from the context menu next to a custom section's title. Special thanks to Édouard P. and Jadon B. for encouraging us to work on this.

• We've updated the one-time password generator to support the arbitrary values for the period parameter when using the OTP url scheme as a secret. We had mistakenly thought that only values of 15, 30, and 60 were valid, however it turns out there are services which use arbitrary values such as 7 or 10. Oops! Our bad! In any event, Minimalist will now generate the correct one-time passwords in even more situations! Special thanks again to James C. for bringing this to our attention.

• Importing data into Minimalist has been improved as well. You can now import data from Secrets, Avira, and the latest version of mSecure. We've also improved the 1Password 1PIF importer to correctly put items in the archive as indicated. Special thanks to Tom E., Giovanni V., and Yariv N. for making these suggestions.

• We've fixed an issue where the "Show as Subtitle" command would not work under some circumstances. Special thanks to Jadon B. for pointing this out.

• Finally, we've attempted to fix a really annoying layout issue which caused the action buttons at the bottom of an item's details to be the wrong height. Sometimes they were way too tall, and sometimes they were so squished the labels were no longer readable. We can't be 100% sure it's corrected, but we haven't seen it even once during testing so it’s looking promising! Special thanks to Jadon B. for encouraging us to look at this again.

That's it for now, but stay tuned because there is more to come!

*** But there is... just one more thing ***

We've decided it's time to get "featured" in the App Store and we need your help! We need as many reviews as possible to let the App Store feature team know how much people enjoy using Minimalist. If you haven't done so already, please leave a review now. Do you know someone else using Minimalist? Please ask them to leave a review. Every review counts! Together we can do it!

Thank you very much in advance and we'll talk soon!

Amazing app, amazing developer!

Was a 1Password user for eons before I decided I had enough of the subscriptions and how bloated it was getting with features I never use, so I went on a quest to try all the alternatives. On PC, I've always used KeePass, but even the best of the KeePass macOS apps are still klunky and confusing. Then I came across Minimalist and I had that "THIS IS IT!" moment... I wanted something no-frills, super clean and simple and this app hits all those marks... it feels like if Apple had made a front end for Keychain, this is what it would look and behave like, and that's a huge bonus. The sync is ridiculously fast and rock solid, the developer quickly adds new features users ask for and he's a super nice, helpful and humble guy to boot... and then, of course, the icing on the cake was a one-time forever purchase (but there is a subscription option for those who want it)... couldn't be happier with this app! Thank you Jeffrey for all your hard work and releasing this for others to enjoy and use!

Spectacular update. Not sure what else to say…

Man I can't believe the development cycle this app is going through right now. I wrote a glowing review like a week ago, and now here I am again lol.

This update brings something I've been wanting since the beginning: an "Archived" section. This is super important for me because I've got stuff I can't get rid of that just clutters up my general list, but even worse, pops up when I'm autofilling on a website. Well that's now taken care of. Implementation is well thought out and seamless.

The second HUGE update is a full-blown password generator. This thing is NUTS and is hands down better than the 1Pass generator. It has all the features from that app PLUS some tasty extras.

I've been using Minimalist for months (it replaced 1Pass when I finally reached the end of the rope with AgileBits). It was a solid but stripped down app back then so I didn't talk to anyone about it. But then it got better. And better. And better. So I started recommending to certain friends and family. I still didn't recommend it to *everyone* since it still had some rough edges (albeit very soft rough edges but still). With this update I'm gonna start recommending it to everyone. And I can finally say something I've been champing at the bit to say since I first made the switch:

Minimalist is better than 1pass. Full stop. It's better in every way and I believe it's the best password manager out there, period.

Wow! Thank you for the incredible review! Now it's on us to live up to it. Challenge accepted!

App Works Great and a Bright Spot for this Category

I’ve been a 1Password user since around 2006, I started having doubts once it went to the subscription model. Over the past 6 months I’ve been trying other Apps and not found one that I really liked.
My last stab at 1Password, I joined the dark side (subscription) and found it wanting. To many issues and complications. The Safari extension was the last straw. What stopped working was 2FA prompts automatically popping up and easily applied. UserID/Passwords not being made available to be automatically selected. Even with the extension disabled.
So, I started looking again and found this app. THIS IS THE ONE! I really like this app. It does what it set out to do. Now my use is back to my real purpose in using my iPhone, iPad, & Mac and not having to spend my time trying to work with an app that should be a tool to accomplish a task, not an app to devote my time too.
