The password-management utility has long offered Dropbox synchronisation, so that users can access their 1Password-stored logins on all their computers and iOS devices. 1Password 3’s Dropbox integration, however, relies on an older version of Dropbox’s API, and Dropbox is shutting down that version of the API on 1 September.
Because Agile understandably doesn’t want to devote resources to an older version of 1Password – and because the app has been discontinued for some time – customers who rely on its Dropbox sync will soon find themselves out of luck. That’s where the 1Password 4 sale comes in. (1Password 4 is a standalone app; it wasn’t a free update to 1Password 3 in the App Store.)
Until Friday 16 August, 1Password 4 for iOS will sell at the discounted price of $8.49. The app normally costs more than double that.
Agile says that 1Password 3 for iOS also supports local Wi-Fi sync with 1Password 3 for Mac, as a workaround for customers who can’t or don’t wish to upgrade to 1Password 4. Customers who need further options can reach out to Agile at firstname.lastname@example.org.
