Pretty cool software. Open source, very important when it comes to sensitive data! Only thing i'm missing is the possibility to create notes.

This looks like a really good, open-source alternative to 1Password. Unfortunately, there's currently no browser extension for Safari on desktop. If/when a Safari extension gets developed (it's on their roadmap), I'll give this another look.

Sorry, not gonna use software named Buttercup.
I don’t want to be heard using the word Buttercup. I don’t even like typing the word Buttercup.

The icon looks pregnant - why is there a bulge on the padlock?
Is it a tumor? Is it a parasitic twin?

The description fails to mention a very important point found on the App Store: That it’s open-source. There’s also no screenshot here.

Zero ratings in the App Store.

52 ratings in Google Play giving it a total of 3.8 stars, but most of them mention problems or ask for additional features. One recurring complaint is there’s apparently no offline/local storage. I personally won’t use any app that requires my passwords to leave my home.
