1Password 4 for Mac is coming – sign up for our newsletter, save the world (from bad passwords)

Do you like 1Password for Mac?

Do you like possibly being picked to beta test incredible new versions of software, finding bugs, and squishing them with impunity?

How about newsletters?

If you like at least a couple of these, there’s a good chance we’ll like you, so why not sign up for our 1Password 4 for Mac newsletter? Soon, we’ll have infrequent news and details to share about what is easily this year’s most widely anticipated new version of 1Password for Mac. We’ll also have a private beta test, which means if you want to help defend the world from bugs and bad passwords, you’ll hear about your chance on the newsletter. Keep in mind, 1Password 4 for Mac will require OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Keep in mind that, once we start looking for beta testers, we won’t have room for everyone and it will be a slow rollout. Hang tight for details on that because we still have plenty of work to do.

Since we announced the 1Password 4 for Mac newsletter on our Twitter and Facebook accounts yesterday, we’ve received over 7,100 signups. I’m no economist, but I think it’s pretty obvious that the following chart makes this number look really awesome.

Know what else would be really awesome? You signing up for our newsletter to be among the first to learn about the all-new, utterly gorgeous and powerful, coming-later-this-year 1Password 4 for Mac.

AGConf[3] is one for the books, and the future

You may have noticed last week that our customer support seemed… perfectly normal, as if our commitment to swift, human-to-human responses hadn’t changed at all. Funny thing about that, because it hasn’t. But for the week, we here at AgileBits were helping customers from a land far, far away.

Most of us just got home from what we like to call AGConf, an occasional gathering of the remote AgileBits crew. For AGConf[3] this year, we visited Now Larimar in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and while spandex suits and cosplay were not on the menu (for our team, anyway), we did:

  • meet face-to-face
  • plow through support tickets
  • make sure the beach was there
  • get not one but two talks from the indelible Merlin Mann
  • philosophize on the future of 1Password and AgileBits
  • have some of our best hackathons yet
  • go ziplining over the length of seven city blocks
  • check in on support tickets again
  • make sure the sports bar was there
  • try on our new 1Password t-shirts we hope to start selling soon
  • check on the pool

Yes, “pontificate” and “drinks” and “beach” were in there, all while making sure the most important part of the company (psssst—that’s our customers) were taken care of. Your eyes also do not deceive you—”the future” and “1Password” were indeed on the AGConf[3] schedule. We have some incredible stuff lined up for 1Password 4 for Mac and beyond, and though I shouldn’t spill anything yet, I sure did consider it.

AGConf[3] was a fantastic success. We had a great time seeing each other, making new friends with the new members of our growing team, answering and collaborating on support tickets as a team in the same room, and introducing Kyle to the Coconut Rum Mojito. In fact, a very special guest and 1Password fan even graced our presence in spirit.

More on that in my next post.
