Cross-Platform Software Licenses

As someone who primarily uses 1Password for Mac and iOS, I'm not sure how I should deal with cross-platform software licenses.

Right now, I only keep OS X software licenses in 1Password. I keep Palm, Windows, and other licenses in Evernote.

The main reason would be how 1Password deals with application icons. What is your solution for dealing with cross-platform software licenses?

    Hi Henry,

    1Password does support custom images in the 1Password for Mac app. You create an image of the app icon and drag it into the image icon for the Windows and/or other platform apps. I do a image search via google for the application, save the best looking one and drag it into the software item's image area. Here's what I did for Windows 8:

    W8 Image

    This may work actually better in the future with 1Password 4 for Mac/Windows, where we'll be taking advantage of the same technologies in the iOS app, where we host the application icons that are uploaded from the customers and 1Password 4 will download it automatically for everybody else if it matches the application's name.

  • How do you suggest keeping track of the platform that the software is for?

    Example: Photoshop for Windows vs Photoshop for Mac serial.

    Would you suggest just using tags?

    I would just append "for Windows" to the version number so it looks like:
