Is 1Password for the iPhone going to support attachments?
This is a tricky question to answer at the moment. The issue is making the sync work properly for this amount of data. The new iPhone OS 3.2 update has a cool new feature that would make this easier, but afaik I'm not allowed to discuss the specifics so I will need to stick with a general answer: we're investigating this and hope to support for attachments in the future.
but for the record- custom wallet types are waaaay higher on my priority list
The top of mine. Waited for a looooong time for them to re appear.
I just want to revive this thread and ask whether this feature is still being considered.
I was dismayed when I scanned all our passports today, synched, and they didn't show up. :-(
Marty, thanks for the update. Our trip is in December, so you have several months to make me happy after iPhone OS 4 comes out. :-)
This would be a superb feature to have and is the only thing 1Password is currently lacking for me.
Keep up the good work and I will keep checking back hoping this is implemented.
P.S. Even if the attachments are not viewable on the iPhone it would serve as a good backup solution for that data.
At this time 1Password does not support attachments in our iOS apps. Sorry if there was any confusion. This is something we are evaluating in future versions, although I do not have anything to announce at this time.
It's too earlier to tell what approach we will be taking to this. One idea is to have a mechanism for people to be able to indicate which attachments they would like synced to iOS (defaulted to not syncing). This will require changes to our data formats on both desktops and on iOS. We are, of course, Agile, so we can handle this sort of change; but it does mean that we need to be careful.
Thanks for the vote Paul, it's good to get an idea of how many users would find this feature useful if we were to implement it.
I created a forum account just so I could add my vote for this feature. Again for the exact same reasons people specified before. I'd like to keep a secure copy of my passports, driver's license, and any applicable visas for traveling in case they're lost or stolen while abroad. I hope this feature is added soon!
