1Password 4 for Android is here

1P4 Android bot 230Ladies and gentlemen, 1Password 4 has gone green.

Well, ok, we haven’t added solar panels (yet), I meant the other green: 1Password 4 for Android is now rolling out for phones and tablets. It is a brand new app and should be available in Google Play soon as soon as Google’s servers update!

This is a fully operational, add-and-edit-all-your-items-able, one-tap Login-able new version of 1Password that has been rebuilt from the first line of code to the last icon.

It’s also free!

An experiment

We don’t call ourselves AgileBits for nothing, so we’re trying something new with this release. 1Password 4 for Android is a free app, and through August 1, 2014, all features are unlocked and free for everyone to try. After that, it will switch to being a reader client for your vault, a perfect companion for syncing your data with 1Password for Mac and PC.

If you want all editing features of 1Password 4 for Android after August 1, you can unlock them with a one-time in-app purchase. We’re still figuring out what that price is going to be, but we’ll have details soon!

Available now-ish and full release notes

We just hit the big red button in Google Play, so 1Password 4 for Android is rolling out as a free upgrade to our previous Android edition. If you don’t see it yet, you should soon, and thanks for your patience.
