PasswordWallet 4.8.16 for iOS now includes:
— The text used for last search is now highlighted within the notes.
— If fields have wide names, PasswordWallet will "stack" labels and fields more cleanly.
— Double-tap on the "Find" magnifier to bring up the Find Category screen. Sorry this broke in our previous update.
Ratings and Reviews
Subtracting one star
Everything I said in my original review (see below) still stands. But PW does not seem to properly take advantage of the iPad Slide Over feature, so minus a star for that
Best password manager because: 1. It is reasonably priced and does NOT require an annual subscription; 2. Syncs well with my computer. Initial set-up is easy and is a breeze to sync thereafter; and 3. Does NOT involve the internet or an external server. You sync wirelessly across your home network. With all the hacking that goes on there is no way I'd trust my passwords to be stored somewhere. I don't care how encrypted the service supposedly is. There is nothing safer than having them stored locally on your devices and ONLY locally, which is how Password Wallet does it.
Have been using this for many years on and across iOS and MacOS devices. Sync and backup features work reliably and are easy to set up (though some of the settings might benefit from nomenclature or instruction that is more intuitive to understand - hence probably some of the reviews that talk about “confusion”). As with version 4.8.13/iPad Pro 2018, there can be a few weeks until a fix is provided to make the app work perfectly on a new device, but otherwise one of the main strengths of this app is that one need not worry about updating operating systems and lose access to one’s passwords. With rare exceptions for major changes, updates are free. Everything is stored locally (unless user chooses otherwise).
Used and relied on PW wallet for years
I’ve found Password Wallet to be an easy and reliable way to store and easily retrieve all my passwords. It’s so simply organized and the edit, or delete functions are a snap. I use this every day! I enjoy the Touch ID function and the ONLY complaint I have is that now I have a newer version iPhone, the Face ID feature (even though it’s listed along with the fingerprint ID, doesn’t function. That is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
