For all the other posters that have commented on the price, may I suggest you visit the website, you will find the price is £39.95 for the personal version rather than jumping to conclusions that the price is a OTT, which if you take it form here then it is.

I've been using the personal version for the past 2 years and it's been perfect, it does what is required with no issues at all.

I know you can set your Mac to startup at a specific time everyday, but with this app you can have totally different times, and it will also shut it down for you as well.

For me this is perfect for my PPC Mac Mini File/Apple TV Server, I can set it to only come on in the evening and shutdown at 12 every night then at the weekends do completely different times.

Apart from saving energy, it also giving my poor old Mac Mini a breather and shutting down/cooling down for a 8 hours a day when we are at work.

I've been searching for a cross platform and cross device encryption app for ages and for my the clincher was:

1. Can be used across OSX and Linux easily
2. Can access the data on my iPad/iPhone easily
3. Auto mount on login and easy access to drives

Yes it may be a little bit pricey but I have some shared info that I really do not trust to be up on 3rd party servers but I need access to across all my devices.

The free version is great if you only want one huge encrypted drive but with the paid version £25you can have multiple drives (easier to manage in the advanced mode section). I love the fact it auto mounts the drives upon login and there is an easy access menu item for each drive (one of the clinchers for me buying the app).

I created a few drives and was able to access them easily on Linux and my iPad, once the free iPad app unlocks the files you can open it using the normal app.

The forum is very active and their support seems very quick to reply. Overall a great app for use with Dropbox if you value your information.

Like most people I had numerous passwords and sensitive information that I kept
on an encrypted dmg file, at first it was great then then the more details I got the
harder it was to find the information quickly, plus then having to try to come up with a strong password every time was a nightmare.

Plus we started to do more and more online banking, and I wanted a way to keep all this in
a central location, after trying several apps I finally settled on 1Password.


No mater what the program is, I need to know I can get my data out in a universal format if I should ever stop using it. The export feature is a snap and it can generate a simple text file (un encrypted of course).

The autofill of webform is a god send, set up a profile and no more typing the same old information time and time again, great integration with Safari and Firefox 3 and great with multiple gmail accounts, where Firefox and Safari both cannot decide which account to use.

Getting stuck trying to create a new password, simply click the '1P' icon in the browser and
generate one with a single click (just don't try to remember it ;), but then that defeats the object of 1Password).

I'm now using it to store all my personal and sensitive information, from program licenses to
Credit Card details, this is one of the easiest apps I've used.

For the price of around £20 it's worth every penny and they have great customer support and a really helpful and friendly forum.
