Looking for help with my passwords, I got me a copy of swordfish to try. Using it at first was pretty easy, though maybe my background as a power computer user was a factor. The program runs solid and it does very well what it's supposed to do. That said, I wish I had the ability to customize some of the field names and maybe have it generate less cryptic passwords (they really are high quality, unguessable passwords) but I have no real complaints. The screens have all the info I need, and navigating everywhere in the program is extremely fast (there's a button for everything). Transferring my passwords over was very easy and adding new records is a breeze. I like the very quick organizing ability, this is a feature every personal information manager should have (alas! most do not). Anyways, about 2 days before the trial expired, I paid for my copy, and it sure has become a very useful tool.

Ok so it's supposed to be a password manager. I didn't really see why I would need 3rd party software for that, seeing as any should support keychain. So I decided to download this and see why I would need it. Upon opening it displays a weird web browser type window asking me to "login" , login to what? I put my user account info in, and it said I have "invalid credentials", so what am I supposed to be logging into? I gave up trying to decipher how to get to the actual "password management" this is supposed to do. Upon exiting a dialog appeared for a moment which revealed that this program is made with filemaker. So essentially they're trying to charge people for a non-standard database app to store your passwords in. I'm not going to bother rating this because I suspect it's purpose isn't what I thought it was. So, why on earth would anyone use this over keychain? What's this app supposed to be for?

Swordfish is a database system that stores passwords and other related information. It is better than Keychain and many other password management systems because it allows full user control over the data stored. You can easily transfer the files to a different drive, portable flash drive, over a network, etc. It is easy to browse categories of passwords many of which are not supported by other applications, including KeyChains and other programs designed to work almost exclusively with the OS. As noted in the Requirements above, the demo has a default login id and a password. The program allows the user to login to the database system so that password records can be managed.

With over 200 password accounts, my favorite Swordfish features are its browser screens and its password maker. With the first one I get 'snapshots' of my accounts along with my password creation habits; the second one, helpedme overcome my bad, albeit convenient habit of using a single password for 17 personal accounts. Now I make user-friendly passwords that replace the old ones, and keep them ready for reference with Swordfish, which I have found to be a well thought out solution. I highly recommend Swordfish 3 to anyone that has been online within the last 5 years.
