If you need a good and safe application to store your passwords, take a look at SecretBook!

SecretBook is now able to import RadicalSafe-exports. So if you're disappointed in RadicalSafe (like everyone who bought it), go to SecretBook and import your database within seconds.

I know I've posted before, but I want to warn anyone who considers to buy this program. Don't!

It's got unsolved bugs (with the danger of losing info) for more then a year now, they stopped their forum and they never respond to emails. By the way, the price is $ 9,95 not $ 5,-, keep it, this program is worth nothing! Sorry!

I've owned this app for good while now and I'm sad to say I wish I wouldn't have purchased it. As a prior commenter noted, they've removed their support forum, not that they ever responded anyway in it, but it was a poor move. Their support is horrible and the product is mediocre at best. Very disappointed. Keep your money.

I was very happy with this program, but the forums are gone at RadicalBreeze and it takes a lot of time for an update to arrive.

It gives an error after exporting the database, only removing the .plist resolves it, but re-registering is necessary.
Also printing the database is too large and things become unreadable, because they overlap. Exporting and opening in other apps do not help, it becomes a mess.

I'm disappointed, it looked great but I guess I'm going for something else and my money is also gone...

I've had problems with the program crashing (am running lastest version of Tiger) and have also lost data upon quitting the application. I've had to delete corrupt prefs several times. I also agree about customer service. I posted in their support forums simply asking about any impending updates to the program to compete with Wallet. No response. It's been months now. I'll be testing Wallet and depending on their customer service, will go with them.

I am not sure why, but Radical Breeze has taken down their user forums. Emails asking about this situation brings no response. I guess they now have my money and I can't really do anything about it.

I've been using RadicalSafe since January 2005 (purchased Feb 3, 2005). I selected it over Wallet after trying both products. Since then, I have aggressively added entries to it and found it very useful. The only limitation that has been occasionally frustrating is the 4 column limit. It would be very nice to have as many named columns as desired and to be able to selectively display columns in the record list. So overall, great product.

Flawed implementation of two things prevents me from recommending it, however. Actually, these two things lead me to recommend avoiding the program entirely:

1. I have repeatedly lost records. If you do not quit the application, new records do not get written to disk. Rather than write records to disk as soon as they are added, they apparently just sit in memory. There is no save function, so you must quit. If your computer crashes before you quit, bye-bye record. I push my powerbook hard and crashes happen occasionally. fact of life. software should either autosave or allow me to save manually. this is not a new concept.

2. I have completely lost my database due to a bug in the password validation. I entered an incomplete password by accident and it irretrievably corrupted my database. I had to retrieve a backup and lost many entries.

The final reason I would recommend avoiding this program is unresponsive customer service. Radical Breeze uses forums for support. I posted both of these issues when they occurred (May 26 and July 2) and have yet to receive any feedback.

Great little program, very promissing and great price. The developer is also very quick with responses on the Supportforum and has great plans with the application.
It's very easy to use, works good and looks good.

This seems to be the first really user friendly password manager out there. Considering the 5$ price this seems like the best choice for anyone who needs to manage a handful of passwords. A couple minor things (as mentioned before) - the lack of a customizable toolbar, you can't assign an icon to a folder, the printing is pretty limited - but I'm sure great things will come from this app. Instead of taking a simple concept and putting it into a program, the developer has taken a simple concept and executed it elegantly. I, too, am not experiencing the bug mentioned earlier.
