I agree with everybody that had been disappointed by all the bugs of Papers 2. Because of that I wouldn't recommend people from upgrading to 3. For the following reasons:

- They never fix things properly.
- They still try all they can to lock you into their software:
- PDF annotation not viewable outside the software.
- Now PDFs are stored with MP3 on iPod type of cryptic names and folders, making it impossible for you to manually navigate your PDF library any more.
- Also the library is a single package file, like iPhoto library. Say goodbye for using other apps to access the folder structure!

The Papers 3 trial made me realize they are trying even more lock-in, and still haven't implemented PDF annotation that is universal to other apps. To sync with iPad, you have BUY again Papers 3 on iPad/iPhone. This totally sucks because the old version cannot do the sync properly at all. So they burned us, and want us to pay again for sync that only works with Dropbox.

I would recommend everybody finding an alternative.

Don't get me wrong, this is probably the best password management suite out there.

However, we have to admit that this company has a history of sucking the money out of you practice. If you decide to go into their "ecosystem", be prepared to pay a lot for each major release, and be prepared to pay for iPhone, iPad, Windows, etc. They already charged full upgrade price on iOS. Unhappy customers can't stop you from buying this software, just be warned that be prepared to keep paying.

BTW, I paid for 1Password 3, 1Password 3 for iPhone, 1Password 4 for iOS, totally over $50. That was when LastPass was fairly rudimental. I personally think LastPass is now a fairly feature rich solution, and you don't have to pay a lot all at once. LastPass is not super cheap: you still end up paying $36 for 3 years. But it's an installment of $12 a year, and you can cancel any time if there comes a better choice.

Of course there is a kind of "lock in": you paid multiple times, for multiple devices. It is an "investment". Just like App Store ecosystem lock in.

Also, some people tend to think softwares are "cheap". Yes if you are only using one commercial software. A lot of people use many softwares at a time. Can you imagine paying $20 a piece for all the softwares you loaded on your iPhone? That's gonna hurt. Not everyone is that affluent! And what's wrong with informing people who don't have the budget to be aware of this?

I think it is a fine piece of software. But it is too annoying to have to check every single attempt for network connection. Most people won't have the time and energy to deal with that.

Therefore, I think a crucial feature is to have a preset of filters that blocks known connections that tend to infringe privacy. Something like "GlimmerBlocker".

12.10 constantly crashes on me. Doesn't matter if I delete all settings or not.
