This is a terrific app that I use daily. I'd give it 5 stars if the developer update it to fix the issue that requires the user to force-quit in order to quit the program. Otherwise, perfect.

I too have been using it for years and never had a problem with it. In my dock and use it every day. However on High Sierra 10.13 the app doesn't quit properly and you have to force quit it. Hope an update will be coming soon. Gtreat app.

I'm going to try it!I have been a 1Password user for years now but this looks like a great app and I think it is time to make a change. I'm a little tired of some of the problems in using 1Password.

Add my love to those before me. Being a dyed-in-the-wool Pastor user, I keep the file in my DropBox Folder so I can access it on all my Macs. Show of hands: Who would like an iOS version of Pastor for their iPad/Phone that would allow for DropBox linking? And I would pay for that.

Pastor has made my life so much easier with it's simple UI and solid performance. It doesn't have the fancy, shmancy stuff like other PW utilities, but it's S-O-L-I-D, works well, and it's the best PW utility I could ever recommend to all Mac users. Get it, it just works! The Pastor Doc you create is portable, and I think that's incredibly useful if you use multiple Macs. Pastor gets my vote! :) -Mic

In SL Pastor files revert to txt default so that one must first launch Pastor then open the file. Get Info changes do not seem to stick. Does anyone have a way to keep Pastor files in their proper format?

Great application - in principle, what it does is duplicated by Secure Notes in Keychain or 1Password (should you own that), but it is perfectly tailored for entering registration details and nothing else. It also feels entirely Mac-like - unlike KeePassX, which is probably its nearest competitor. The randomised password generator is also worthwhile; speakable passwords, which have combinations of letters reflecting written English but are not English words, are particularly useful (and memorable, as it turns out). A couple of minor issues are that passwords are at maximum 255 characters long (one of my registered applications has a 536-character password, for some reason) and attachments are not supported - binary "passfiles", to coin a word, are occasionally used in lieu of ASCII passwords. But these are enhancements, not issues!

Good to see this app being updated to a final version 1.8. Even though Pastor's encryption method isn't the most safe (RC4) it is okay for passwords and software serials. Thanks to the developer;-)

I've been using Pastor for years to keep my passwords encrypted and easy to access. It's a great app- I've NEVER had a corrupted file or have the application crash or anything like that. It's just a great program!

Pastor uses RC4 = UNSAFE, easily crackable Keychain & 1Password uses TDES = virtually uncrackable (would need years and cost billions to do) Filevault & WPA2 uses AES = 100% not crackable Overall, 1Password is all you'll need imo. Once Keychain gets upgraded to FileVault standard AES, that's what 1password will start using, so I recommend that app instead. This (Pastor) on the other hand is INSECURE and easy to crack - steer well clear (it's been years since AES arrived, and the author is STILL puttering along using weak RC4, with no plans on his part to upgrade this app).......use at your own risk.

It has proved very stable for me over the past year or so, I've been using it. I'd like to see a search feature, and stronger encryption, but what I really like about Pastor is that is stores the passwords/serials in a file that I can move around, and store on a networked drive, and therefore open from any computer on my network, opposed to many of the other serial-storing apps that saves the data in the Application Support folder, or syncs via .Mac. Pastor's approach is much simpler, and for me, better. Thumbs up to the developer. Thanks for Pastor. It rocks!

What's the advantage of using Pastor over Keychain Access which is built into OS X and integrates with the password requests made by other apps such as Safari? Any advantages other than the password generator? Nothing against Pastor; it's always good to have choices and I'm just wondering.
