1Password and iPad: Part 1

Yes, I said “part 1.”

I hope it comes as no surprise that we’re planning, plotting, and otherwise scheming to bring 1Password to the iPad in a big way. But if you are surprised, well… surprise! I hope it’s good news, because we’re really excited about our progress. So excited, in fact, that we feel like sharing some of our design concepts with you.

We aren’t content to leave you with using that 2x button on our iPhone app. It’s an iPhone app! And while it is the Best 1Password iPhone App Ever (if we may so humbly say ourselves), the iPad is an entirely different beast, and we’re giving it the utmost attention it deserves. Keep in mind that the following screenshots are design mockups from deep within our labs. They aren’t finished or even working models yet, and you wouldn’t believe what I had to go through to be able to post them publicly. Honestly, don’t bother asking, because I can’t tell.

Pleasantries aside, let’s get on with the show. Meet our initial vision of 1Password for iPad!

Above is a mockup of 1Password running vertically on iPad. Smashing, isn’t it? Dan Peterson, our in-house design demigod, has been cranking away on iPad and 1Password touch projects since we got back from The Agile Cruise, and it shows!

But of course, what is 1Password on iPad without a landscape mode? I’m glad you asked.

Check out those gorgeous icons, the item list with alphabet scroller, and the stylish bolts that really bring the item detail area together. And yes, we have popovers! I told you we’re hitting the iPad in a big way.

We’re not finished yet, but we think we’re on the right track. We want to bring you the best 1Password on iPad experience possible, so let us know what you think of our prototypes here in the comments!
