    Everyone seems to swear by 1Password.

    I don't use it, but I hear everyone talking about it.

    Is it possible to sync passwords across multiple devices.

    Let's say you save a password on the iPad, would it also show up on a Windows PC?

    SplashID works well for me. I use it and sync across platforms - PC, Android Phone, iPad, iPod Touch.

    I like 1 Password a lot. There are several features that I really like, but here are a few reasons why I decided to use 1Password after trying a few different apps. I opted for 1Password Pro because it's a universal app.

    I REALLY like the fact that you have a lot of control over how secure or quick and convenient the passwords are. First, there is a master passcode to open the app. Then once you are in you can set up the information to be accessible once you've entered the app. However if you have some really important information you can Add another layer of protection so that even if someone opened the app their is another layer to get through.

    I know, why have to remember or enter more than one password for an app that saves you from remembering passwords. Well in my opinion it's a nice feature because you might have one group, such as forums and places without financial information, and then another group for accounts linked to payment processes. The extra level of protection can be added to just the data worth taking the extra step of precaution.

    The app can be linked to dropbox and then you can sync your devices. I use this feature because I always have my phone and sometimes don't have my iPad (althouh it's a rare occasion when the iPad isn't latched on to me.)

    Many users seem to like the automatic site log in feature that's included in the browser also. You can backup and restore the app with a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer. If you have a Mac, there's a desktop version of the software that will keep things organized and in sync, although I haven't used it and can't give much information in that particular feature.

    1Password has something that'll let you access your files via your PC or Mac. I forget how I got it so I can access it via my PC, but I know that you need cloud sync. I've sync'd my 1Password with Dropbox, which creates a secured key file. Inside that file is an html link. Click on it, input your password and off you go, looking through your 1Password files, all via the Internet.

    I believe you also get a program for your Mac/PC, but since Internet access works for me...

    Of course, there is a LOT more info at the 1Password web site. I set it up so long ago that I forgot all the details. But, I can, and have, been able to access my 1Password wherever/whenever I've been without my iPad.

    Hope this helps.

    1password can be configured to sync through a DropBox account. I have it set up this way and keep my passwords synced across my iMac, iPad, and Droid X. On the iMac (and Windows) it offers additional functions with Safari, Explorer and FireFox, using a plugin to auto-login to your websites. Instead of remember a dozen passwords, you can just memorize your 1Password password. It is real handy for those site you seldom visit and can't remember what you did. It's also a secure cross device syncing storehouse of all you other sensitive information.

    It's not a cheap solution. You'll have to pay for each app individually, and the computer version will cost you almost $40.00. Still one of the better purchases I've ever made.

    I think I saw this could be downloaded from the Apple Store? Is it pretty intuitive to use? My friend had one that wasn't the most user friendly..

    Roboform is my one stop solution. It crosses all platforms and no messy syncing with Dropbox. There is an app for every platform and they all sync with each other. I think I paid $9.99 for a year. I really like that I can get to my passwords no matter where I am in the world on any computer or phone. I don't see that in many other products.
