This nifty utility might look like a one-trick pony but it does that very trick flawlessly and without fail. I bought it years ago and then passed to other similar utilities with more functions that at the end proved to be superfluous. Now after years of trying and testing other possibilities I'm back to my good old one-trick pony because despite its limits, no other utility comes even close to it. It's fast, intuitive, and encrypts and decrypts files like a charm. Never crashed on me and has always been functional at its best no matter how much data I threw at it. If you want to hide those little secrets then this is securest way to go. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

I'm searching for a replacement for iNotepad, and this could be a good candidate.
After a fast trial, I'm missing labels!
Waiting for next version! ;-)

LittleSecrets is the little gem I've been searching for for years. I kept all of my website & email passwords, credit cards, software licenses, etc. in an amazing app called NotePad Deluxe. However it hasn't been updated since 2005 so I knew I needed to start looking for a replacement. Unfortunately all of the "Password" applications trotted out 'features' that I really didn't like. Who wants the program to dictate what fields I have to fill in? Just give me a secure, clean space to type out the information that's relevant and let me organize it into groups of my choosing. Those didn't seem like lofty software search goals but I looked everywhere and tried dozens of apps without one measuring up. I gave up for quite a while but NotePad Deluxe was the last of my PowerPC applications and with Mac OS 10.7 Lion's release right around the corner I decided to start looking again. Then today I found LittleSecrets. I just want to say: Thank You!! I love it - the simple, clean design and the perfect options in it's preferences that make it ideal for keeping all of my important information safe but easily accessible at a moments notice. It is a joy to use and, for me, a happy ending to a long search.

Any chance it can open NPD files? If so I would happily buy a copy for my old NPD files, even though I currently use SOHO Notes and am generally pretty satisfied with its great range of features.

Thanks a lot for doing a "lion"-update even before the new OS is publicly available! Much appreciated.

This is great. I can easily store things like bank account and credit card information without worrying about data theft if my laptop disappears. It would be nice to have a few more features as some people have suggested (categories with color coding, locking of elements, etc), but for the price, elegant simplicity, and functionality, LittleSecrets can't be beat.

Registered user since 2003.

What I like best:

* Minimal amount of structure. For this purpose I much prefer a two-pane interface to a three-pane interface.

* Instantaneous find-as-you-go search.

* Extremely reasonable price.

I also like the option to auto-detect URLs. I can look up my password for a web site and then go to that web site with one click.

So easy to use, so simple, no hassle, and still a good useful rock solid app.
Exactly the kind of thing I like to use.
Was searching for something that can handle and password protect my notes in a very simple, quick, and effective way, at a reasonable cost, since I have no use for all the features DEVONthink or SOHONotes offers. (I tried them too).
Gave LittleSecrets a test, and registered it immediately.

Thanks for the UB-Update and for fixing the bug regarding the "tab-key".

Danke! :-)

HERE'S MY ANALYSIS OF LITTLESECRETS: It is basically similiar to Devonthink (but without all the bells, whistles, and the higher cost). It would be nice if:

a) you could label (color) your folders and documents for the simplicity of prioritizing what's important and what's least important.

b) it would also be nice to be able to lock your documents and files to prevent accidental deletion.

Other than that it looks like a good clean program and well worth its price. Why did I switch from Devonthink to LittleSecrets? Simple, its called security. With LittleSecrets you have the ability to Password Protect your database with Encryption. Why is this important? Ever hear of identity theft?

I give this program 2 thumbs up! And if the developer should read this review, it would be nice to have more bells and whistles. ;)

It definitely seems to be an excellent tool for storing private information. A small detail which is not mentioned on the website, but which is useful to know: since Little Secrets has the ability to save automatically a document in progress at regular intervals, I asked the developer if those intermediate steps would be encrypted as well. His answer was affirmative.

Excellent! It means that it is possible to write a document with Little Secrets and to leave absolutely no trace on one's Mac - in contrast, using a word processor and then encrypting the text with another tool, even if the original is securely deleted, may potentially leave traces of intermediate steps of the document somewhere on the hard disk, which a very determined intruder might find. This is not the case with Little Secrets, the developer assured me: it makes it an excellent tool, which fulfills one of my needs, and certainly mthe needs of a number of other users. And all that at for a price of less than $10!
