I like Locko's interface much more than 1Password and the application is stable and well designed but it needs features. Here is my list in order of importance to me:

- wifi syncing
- drag and drop items between folders
- better organization of folder tab. Should segregate the generic folders which only hold one type of data with folders that you can organize yourself
- manual reordering of folders
- Title headers for the item list
- ability to create or hide custom fields
- create new items by drag and drop of items to the dock icon. Example I'd like to add a photo by dragging a pic to the dock icon and have the app know which folder i want it to go into. Same with a pdf file or text data
- a popup window to quickly add a new item from any application
-

Of all the similar apps out there, I think Locko is the best suited to evolve into a desperately needed Bento replacement; a personal database, not necessarily focused on passwords but on personal data of all types.

Since Bento left this space there are no real alternatives except for Tap Forms. Tap Forms is a nice app with a wonderful feature set but it's far, far too buggy and unstable to be taken seriously as a storehouse for personal info.

Locko is very different, but it's tight programming and excellent UI make it a great base to build a personal database on. I hope the developer chooses this route rather than trying to compete with 1Password, I think that would be far more difficult than what I propose.

Great app. Good luck!

Locko has manual reordering of folders, what I meant to say was categorizing of folders into custom groups.

horrible update. Notes can not be displayed. After accessing a note no content of any object can be displayed! rollback to 1.0 does not find the backups.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We have fixed the issue already and the update will be available soon. Before it goes official you can download it here: http://download.binarynights.com/Locko1.1.1.zip

Let me know if it works for you.

@dev: great! works fine, but needs some improvements at the buttons to edit the entries. Some of these are too short and in German there is " Abbrech " instead of " Abbrechen ". Thank you!

Hello

I recently tried out Locko, and it works, but some UX tweaking would be appreciated:
- pressing tab in the "custom fields" section should add a new custom note
- hotkeys for adding custom fields
- ability to add custom icons

Is there an issue with the current version of Locko's browser plugin and Safari 7? Because I cannot get it working on Safari 7 nor on Chromium.

I personally dislike the skeumorphic look, so I made some clean backgrounds for Locko.

Ryan129 I agree with your assessment of Locko. Overall it's UI is excellent and I really like the smooth feel of the app and the refined user experience. That said, I also agree about the skeumorphic look, I don't mind textures though, just not the colors and textures of the app as it currently is. So, besides needing a minor paint job, the application is definitely a winner. I'm looking forward to some fleshed out features and hopefully wifi sync. This is the one feature which keeps me stuck in 1Password world.

Hello again
I recently made myself a minimalistic Locko icon and a new set of textures and thought you people might like it.

@Ryan129 Thanks for the mockups. I think you will like the upcoming update which will have a flatter look :) You can already find some screenshots if you check out our tweeter.

I just bought this so can't really write a thorough review. However, I spotted a huge omission and since the developer seems to be listening, I'll add it here: there is no import function! There's no way I'm going to enter in a couple hundred passwords manually. So within 5 minutes, I've reached an impasse. I'll keep going for the time being just to see how the rest of the app works...

Hi Mrtomato,

Please let us know which application you would like import from.

Lastpass and 1Password.

I will add to my review here that once websites are added to the plugin, the plugin works fairly well. Websites can be added automatically once you've logged in, but Locko does not ask to save them. A notification would be nice..

Import from 1password would be nice

I was about to make a feature request for a separate app locker tab until I noticed that I can add my own categories. I have to say that I like this feature a lot! However, I have not been able to work out how to save license keys for apps that require them. I'm adding them to the Documents folder for now, but this is not an ideal solution.

I tried Locko recently and really come to love it's design.
It's only V1.0 so obviously there is room for improvement, but the basic package works as is.

I'd love to see attachment support for software license files.
I too am storing these in the documents folder within Locko, but this is not ideal.

Another thing I'd like is to be able to enable/disable favicons, both in the app and browser extension. Most of the passwords I've stored are for sites without favicons, so scrolling through the app and/or the extension gives it an cluttered feel. I don't like favicons in general and disabled Safari to show them. Hope Locko will enable me to do this to.

Import from 1Password would have been nice, but I entered everything manually already. One benefit of going through them is to delete old and unused passwords :)

One more thing. Icondrop on software licenses. I noticed Locko doesn't always recognizes installed apps / preference panes.
It would be nice to drop icons on listed apps which are not installed and those which are unrecognized by the app.

I don't think I'm alone in my desire to find an alternative to 1Password. (Their "completely re-written" version 4 is a debacle, IMO.) You may want to capitalize on their misstep and make it very easy for people to switch.

Binary Nights is an amazing dev - Forklift is the best FTP I have used... but Locko needs a lot more work.

There simply has to be ios counterpart for a serious password app for business use IMO.

There needs to be a pop up or toolbar for auto save when Locko detects a log in. The log in needs to have the option to be put in categories and auto login or not.

There should be multiple fields in log ins, different categories for log ins, credit card details etc.
Importing would be nice too (from Lastpass or 1 Password).
I want my computer to stay logged in to Locko indefinitely not just 30 minutes.
I want to swap & use Locko but it's not ready for us...YET!
I expect this to grow & hopefully soon I will love it as much as forklift!

Thanks for the review.

We're listening and will consider your suggestions in the upcoming updates.
You can disable Auto-Locko in Preferences > Security already.

I love Forklift, too! Haven't tried Locko yet. Based on reviews, I might wait a bit. I've had 1Password. Presently i use RoboForm Anywhere app for most everything. It's good, clean, syncs between devices.

The new Mini icon is very annoying and it won't let me use Safari without automatically enabling that icon.

If this is how is going to be from now on, I'll temporary revert back to version 3.

Already looking at Locko, which looks great: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/49100/locko
