Rockstar Customers Roundup: 1Password 3 beta and other reviews

Over the years, 1Password has won quite a few awards and testimonials from the press and happy customers alike. Naturally, when we find out about these kind words, we take a short break from trying to make 1Password even more awesome, congratulate each other on a job well done, and humbly collect the sentiment for our Testimonials page. We then get back to work right away, but I figured it was time to start thanking our rockstar customers in a more public venue like, for example, this blog, for saying nice things about 1Password.

Thus begins a new quasi-regular series dubbed “Rockstar Customers” here on the Agile Web Solutions blog, where we highlight new and notable testimonials from our customers and the media. Our customers really do say the darndest things, and the least we can do is offer a hat-tip in return!

As icing on the cake, this week is a killer time to kick this series off due to 1Password 3 going public beta. We’ve had some great reactions and general feedback so far, so let’s get to it:

Gordon Schulz, “1Password is just awesome and even more”:

I read about 1Password on today. That’s it. Played around with the software for 15 minutes and bought it. Sad thing is – you can’t describe how awesome it is with words, you have to use it. Then you will want it. For ages I have been using crappy passwords, same passwords on multiple sites, etc… no more.

John Hickman:

It is truly an awesome piece of software! It is a must app for me and I always pass on my opinion for this app being a must own. I look forward to your official release! Keep up the great work.

Brett Kelly, TUAW, 1Password 3 Beta brings a sweet new interface and Snow Leopard support:

“Several of us at TUAW are big fans of 1Password, and today our pointy party hats are standing taller than ever thanks to the opening of the public beta for 1Password 3. This new version brings with it a massive list of changes, improvements and new features.

Nicholas Bonsack, Macworld, 1Password 3 beta now open to all:

If you missed out when Agile Web Solutions was offering a private beta of 1Password 3 to customers on Snow Leopard, there’s good news! 1Password 3 is now available as a public beta for one and all. Yes, that means you. Feel special? You should!

Erik Vlietinck, IT Enquirer, 1Password version 3 review:

Agile Web Solutions has released a public beta of its version 3 of 1Password, and if you thought (like I did) they couldn’t improve this industry leading password and license manager anymore, they’ve proven us wrong. 1Password 3 is nicer to look at, better structured, and has time saving features even.

Jacqui Cheng, Ars Technica: 1Password 3.0 goes public beta with Snow Leopard support:

Agile released the public beta of 1Password 3.0, taking us one step closer to native password management bliss.

Justin Williams, My Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List for Mac OS X:

I love [1Password] in so many ways because it has made my life so much easier when it comes to remembering logins, filling out web forms, etc.
