I will reiterate what a previous reviewer noted. This appears to be abandonware. The developer's Web site no longer exists.

When the site was available, it said they would have iPhone syncing in 2009. It never happened.

Info.xhead is a great app, but it's safe to assume we will not see anymore updates.

The developer's website (xhead) is gone. They are out of business most likely. Abandoned. Purchase this software with caution. It works fine but they have been behind times for the last few years. No iPhone/iPad version, no product enhancements/updates etc.. They worked on a "when we get around to it" schedule....

While there are different password managers out there, none match the elegance of this one.
Reliable, simple, slick, intuitive.

I have been using this program for years and I cannot function without it. It has never failed me.

MobileMe synchronization is awesome.

Version 2.0 is amazing.

I have begged them for an iPhone/iPod touch version.

Hi there, I use info.xhead software to keep track of the many site addys, passwords and URLS I use in my work as a busy deputy managing editor for an international newsblog of 40 journalists.

I've used info.xhead for several years now, just recently updated to most recent version. THIS SOFTWARE has never once lost an item or jammed. It is like a faithful assistant who instead of saying, "I'll go look for it, um maybe I know where it is," instead says immediately, "Here is all the data you need right now and in full." What a relief. I am always looking for straightforward unbloated software that has a reasoned learning curve and works reliably the first, tenth and zillionth time like clockwork. info.xhead does just that.

I'd also mention ANY time I've had a question, the genius behind the software answers promptly and in full. That's also a big plus, as I have other productivity software that seems to have to get a gong to raise the dead to get a response from 'support.'

Info.xhead is FIVE STARS all the way around. Thanks.

Info.xhead is without a doubt one of the best applications of its kind. Version 2.0 incorporates a number of handy features. I like the newly redesigned user interface. It looks a lot slicker, but still maintains some of its classic look and feel. Still, like everything else, features and all could be further improved - I only hope it doesn't take a year or two for any improvements to be realized.

The developers, in my opinion, have succeeded at putting together yet another solid update to this fantastic application. But this alone is only part of what they should offer; addressing customers needs and concerns in an honest and timely manner is equally important. Sadly, this seems not to be the case often.

I'm sure that with every OS overhaul, comes challenges to developers. Maybe more so to some due to the nature of their applications. But there are developers offering their software as freeware or donationware who keep up with those challenges and who provide outstanding customer support with nothing more than the satisfaction of helping users have the best experience using their software. I commend them for that. People should show appreciation for their time and passion by making a donation whenever possible. The developers of Info.xhead would certainly benefit by adopting some of that passion.

But why am I praising this application while at the same time showing the stick? Well, it's simple. It's sad to see customer support not doing justice to an otherwise fantastic application. My critique is intended to encourage the developers to take better care of their customers, after all, they have built a great application. Why not going full circle then?

Waited a long time for an update, and now that it's here it will neither accept my old registration key, nor does it seem to be able to communicate with mobileme. I'd export the data to put into another app, but the export function is grayed out...

Hopefully v.1 on my G5 will let me export the data.

Another month gone by and no upgrade, no news, no nothing. X-mas maybe? I already had to invest in other software to keep my serials.

May you share with us which one are you using? So that we can move to that brand?

I moved to Wallet and also got the iPhone app to go with it.

Sad this app died and none of the deadlines were met by the developer. The timeline on the comments here tells the story. All of us that had to shell out $$$ for some other new app to replace this won't come back to info.xhead.

Posted October 27, 2009 by xHead Support: "We have not abandoned development for Snow Leopard. A fully functional version for Snow Leopard is scheduled to be released early next week. A simple email to us would have verified this fact. In the future, please check with us before posting a comment that is completely and utterly unfounded."

So . . . . . why don't you tell WHAT IS HAPPENING?

This company doesn't have and doesn't care the commitment to customer. They lied repeated for the release day. Change another new password software ASAP, everyone!
