1Password 5 for Mac Gets OS X Yosemite Revamp

Developer AgileBits has released 1Password 5 for Mac, a completely redesign version of their popular secure password manager, and they’ve made it just for OS X Yosemite users.

1Password 5 for Mac

AgileBits Log:

It was only a year ago that we released 1Password 4, and 1Password 5 for Mac ensures we’re ready for the next major chapter of OS X. We completely redesigned 1Password to be a first-class OS X Yosemite citizen—in fact, it requires Yosemite now—right down to compatibility with its new Dark Mode; if you enable it, be sure to check out 1Password mini in the menu bar!

What’s New in Version 5.0

We’ve joined the Yosemite Alliance!
– Fresh new design that fits in perfectly with Yosemite.
– Added support for the Dark Side (er, Dark mode).
– Inspiring new icon, hand-delivered by a gold robot and his mischievous trash can.

iCloud sync upgrades have arrived!
– Powered by Apple’s next-gen sync for faster and more robust syncing.
– ***Important Note*** As such, iCloud sync now requires 1Password 5 for iOS 8 and 1Password 5 for OS X Yosemite from the Mac App Store.

Wi-Fi Sync got a Hyperdrive!
– Attachments can now be synced over Wi-Fi with 1Password 5 for iOS.
– Syncing starts automatically as soon as your device is on the same network.

Many other improvements and fixes based on your galactic feedback.

1Password mini received a major upgrade, it’s redesigned to be faster and more intuitive so you can fly through menus, anchor an item in its own window with a shortcut, and more. Plus, if you trigger 1Password mini with the system-wide shortcut (⌘-⌥-\ by default), it now conveniently appears in the center of your display.

1Password 5 also includes iCloud sync:

The new iCloud sync is a really big deal. It’s faster and just plain better in every way, and you simply need to upgrade to iCloud Drive on all your Apple devices to sync 1Password 5 (note: we do not store your data in iCloud Drive. We use CloudKit, its underlying technology, for sync). That means you’ll need to iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite all the things. For more details and a guide to making the transition, please check out our iCloud FAQ support document.

Wi-Fi sync is still available to directly sync your data between your Mac and iOS devices. Attachments will now also sync as well.

All 1Password 4 users will get a free update to 1Password 5, but don’t fret if you haven’t bought it yet, as AgileBits is throwing a 30% off launch sale. Get 1Password 5 for Mac for just $35. I use 1Password, and highly recommend it. Especially at 30% off!

1Password 5 is available in the Mac App Store, and the AgileBits website.

    Yes, I was a little bit pissed about this actually. I saw it this morning and rushed to their website since I have a coupon, which would make my total 26 bucks. But then I saw that it’s only compatible with 10.10 and they completely removed the version for Mavericks. So now AgileBits, just like Apple, are forcing people to upgrade to Yosemite, despite it just came out a day ago.

    I think many people won’t upgrade (including myself) for awhile, until other kind souls will test it and point out the bugs and rough spots in Yosemite.
