Not Universal, does NOT work on Silicon Mac, unless I a "helper", Rosetta. NO "helpers" and no "rosietas" on my new iMac M1. Developer, please update.

Unable to import from any format if the Notes in the original app (1Password, Enpass, etc.) contain the character " — and I have many... Enpass or KeePassXC don't have that issue.

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.

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

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.
