Fantastic App

I have been using this app for a couple years now, and it has served its purpose quite effectively. It has a small footprint. It allows for a nice organization of your credential information, and via its search you can quickly find what you are looking for.

The developer updated the iOS version with touch ID, maybe this one too? Anyhow great app! I’d pay a few bucks for the update…just to show my appreciation.Hands down, best password app, even if it were 5 to 8 bucks (iOS and MacOS app)!!
