Yesterday evening, after several weeks of collaboration with our beta family, we published the highly anticipated 1Password version 4.5 for Android. The big news, of course, is that it is now possible to sync your primary vault with 1Password for Mac or Windows using the new Wi-Fi Sync feature.
Look, Ma, no hands! (or clouds)
We’re thrilled to offer you even greater control over how you sync your 1Password data. If you prefer to keep your vault on your local Wi-Fi network and not fuss with manually copying your 1Password vault to and from your Android phone or tablet, you’ll enjoy the convenience of Wi-Fi Sync. You can read about setting up Wi-Fi Sync in our user guide. If you’re interested in reading more about Wi-Fi Sync from a developer’s perspective, we posted a DevBits article about this on our blog last month.
In related news, you know that “pull to refresh” gesture, where you tap your screen and drag it down? Well, we kind of love it. But that’s not a good enough reason to use it. After all, we don’t just throw things into 1Password, all willy nilly-like. While we were working on improvements for 4.5, we thought, What if you could use that easy, convenient gesture to manually trigger a sync? That would be cool! So now you can.
Polyglottery, levelled up.
One of the ways in which we make 1Password more accessible to folks is by localizing it, and we were immensely proud when we began doing that last year. Today, we add Korean to the list of available localizations.
You are awesome and we love you.
You are some seriously passionate people! Every day, our inbox and forums are filled with new conversations. The time you take to submit feature requests and bug reports means the world to us. It helps our developers prioritize resource allocation so we can make 1Password even better for you. The complete rundown of the improvements in version 4.5 can be found on our version history page.
If you use 1Password beta for Android, we have to extend an extra special thank you to you. We love our beta families on every platform, but especially on Android! There are so many different Android devices and without your help, it would be exponentially more difficult for us to make sure every 1Password update is a solid one. Thank you for all that you do.
