Now that you have iCloud sync outside of Mac App Store should users that have the App Store version switch to the other version? What would be the pros and cons of switching? Can those that purchased through the App Store switch for free?


1Password Version: 6.3
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OS X 10.11.5
Sync Type: iCloud

  • Hi @marty_b,

    There’s no need to switch versions at this time, both the Mac App Store and the AgileBits Store version of 1Password will continue to receive regular updates.

    What would be the pros and cons of switching?

    A pro of the AgileBits Store version of 1Password is the ability to help us beta test new features, if you like living on the edge. ;)

    A pro of the Mac App Store version is having all your licensing and updates handled by the Mac App Store.

    Can those that purchased through the App Store switch for free?

    The AgileBits Store version will recognized your Mac App Store receipt and should license itself automatically when you install.

    Please note, if you do decide to switch, it’s important that you fully quit 1Password using ⌘⌃Q ( Command-Control-Q ) and delete the app (by dragging to the Trash from /Applications and not using any app cleaner) before installing the new version. Having multiple versions of 1Password on your system is not advisable.

    Hi Megan,

    Thanks.

    Where/how do I find my App Store receipt?

    @marty_b Apple should automatically email you a receipt whenever you purchase something from any of its stores. You can also view your purchases by going to iTunes, entering the App Store, and hitting Account. Then you'll see a Purchase History section that allows you to "view all." And there you have 'em! 8-)

  • Thanks.

  • Hi @marty_b,

    I apologize for the confusion - there’s no need to look up your Mac App Store receipt in order to license the AgileBits Store version of 1Password. The receipt details are stored within your system file, and 1Password knows where to look for it. :)
