1Password 4.1 for Android is coming, we extended the freemium date and have a price!

1Pa premium featuresOver the past six weeks, we’ve seen a tremendous response to the all-new 1Password 4 for Android and our free trial experiment. Our team has been hard at work on a number of updates and great new features, and today we’re happy to say that v4.1 is coming soon, we extended the trial date, and we can now announce a price!

v4.1 for Android

Coming soon, 1Password 4.1 for Android will allow new users to create their first vault right on the device, no existing sync or vault required.

We added localizations for German, Spanish, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Romanian, Russian, and Swedish. We are also finishing up translations into Chinese, Japanese, French, and Italian. Finally, we added some fixes and improvements that lay the groundwork for goodies that are on their way.

Free trial deadline extended, and a price!

Since our experiment is going so well, we extended the final day through Monday, August 18. Now everyone can have a few more weeks to check out 1Password 4 for Android and all its security awesomesauce.

On Tuesday, August 19, our Android version will switch to a freemium model. You can download it for free and use it as a 1Password reader, a great sync companion with 1Password for Mac or Windows, so you can take all your items on the go. To unlock all editing, organizing, and creating features, make a one-time, in-app purchase of just $9.99 USD to get the full power of 1Password right in your hands.

But wait there’s more

Since we’re just that excited about 1Password 4 for Android, we’ll start this off on August 19 with a $7.99 USD Awesome Android Launch Sale! This 20-percent-off sale will run for just two weeks, so when the sale starts mid-August, move fast.

1Password 4 for Android is coming [UPDATE: It's here!]

1P4 Android bot[Major important update: it's here!]

We’ve been busy. Not just busy—busy. A while ago we decided that we could rebuild 1Password Reader for Android. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the greatest 1Password for Android the world has ever seen. We then set out to do it.

Now it’s done.

1Password 4 for Android arrives on Tuesday, June 10. It is an entirely new and full-featured app, built for both phones and tablets!

It is also an experiment. All new features will be unlocked and free for everyone to use through August 1, 2014. After that, 1Password 4 for Android will go into a reader mode, and all features can be unlocked for an in-app purchase.

To be among the first to get the whole kit-n-kaboodle about the all-new 1Password 4 for Android, subscribe to our newsletter below (and be sure to respond to the confirmation email!). Press folks who want to give it a look, get in touch with me directly or via the bottom of our Press Room.

 

We’d like to thank our existing Android users and all 1Password customers for all the enthusiasm over the past year. We can’t wait to show you the incredible new 1Password 4 for Android.

1Password 4 for Android: The beta, like winter, is coming!

You might have noticed that this summer a couple of interesting screenshots appeared in our Dropbox folder, and then here on the blog.

You also might have noticed that we ran a rather large beta test for our Mac version.

Now those two great tastes will taste great together! We’ve set up a shiny new (if I do say so myself) Android beta newsletter signup page.

If you ever sent us an email or a tweet asking about the future of 1Password on Android, now’s your chance to help shape that future.

It’s an opt-in newsletter, so we’ll send you a message with a confirmation link to click just to be sure you meant to sign up, and to make sure we got your address right.

Join us, won’t you?

AgileBits is now accepting applications to its School of Magic

Sometimes I feel a bit like I spend my days at Hogwarts. There’s magic happening all over the place, the occasional dragon, and never a dull moment. This has been extra true lately, and as a result, our very own Minister of Magic has declared it is time once again to open applications to Hogwarts! In this case we’re presuming you’ve had a turn under the Sorting Hat, and we’re looking for those who have been sorted into the following Houses:

  • Customer Support
  • Android Developer
  • Windows Developer

As you may have noticed, the iOS version of 1Password got a significant update late last year, and the new Mac version had a dramatic unveiling a couple of weeks ago. For those playing along at home, you’ll recall we have two more versions, and it’s those two we are aiming to transfigure into sleek modern versions. Doing this means we need your help!

And by “you” I mean “a person who is all-around awesome and familiar with 1Password and has excellent communication skills”. We are accepting applications from wherever you are. Yes really! Most of our team works remotely, which is no problem. Our owls can always find you.

You may find it hard to believe, but there’s more awesome involved than just being accepted at Hogwarts. On top of MAGIC, you can also look forward to:

  • An encouraging and cooperative virtual office
  • A healthy pay scale (no house-elf style treatment here!)
  • A flexible schedule
  • Casual Friday…every day! In fact, even more casual, if that’s your thing.
  • Other neato spells and charms that make working for AgileBits loads cooler than whatever you’re doing now.

As for what we ask in return, it’s pretty straightforward:

  • Great work ethic
  • Cool head in a hectic environment
  • Strong communication skills
  • High rum tolerance (ok I’m kidding. It doesn’t have to be rum)
  • Passion for driving 1Password forward to make it the Best App Ever
  • Support members need to be able to help with about 65 email replies a day, ensuring customers get the help they need. No worries though, our Spell books are available for study!

Does this sound like you? If so, please email us with your preferred job in the subject line (Support, Windows Developer, Android Developer). In the email itself, tell us who you would most like to sit next to during breakfast in the Great Hall, and your current favorite app (besides 1Password) on your platform of choice. Also include the answer to this question: What is the motto of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?
