When connecting an iDevice to iTunes via wifi, the sync tool recognizes it, but can not sync:
(null) connected, searching for 1Password app...
Found com.agilebits.beta.onepassword-ios installed on (null)
Loading encryption keys
Loading local items
Ready to copy data to (null)
Copying data to (null)...
Will this be supported in the future?
Is it possible to add a details view, where the names and updatedAt information of the changed entries of both sync partners are displayed?
I have two iOS devices in my wifi network, both have the 1P beta installed.
1P USB Sync gets confused sometimes... it shows the connected (usb) device and sometimes it switches to the not connected (wifi) device and i am not able to sync via usb.
You should either support 'wifi iTunes shared files' (multiple devices can be connected at once) or ignore those devices.
Edit: when connecting both devices via USB, the sync tool crashes.
I understand that 1Password 4.x for iOS now supports file attachments. I created a secure note with an attached image in 1Password for Mac (current MAS version), but I can't see this image in iOS after an USB sync. Is this a limitation of the USB sync utility? Or did I misunderstood something here?
Unlike some of the others, I'm experiencing crashes WITH the desktop app opened and unlocked. The USB Sync application crashes continuously when the desktop data file is open. I could not even fill out a problem report before it crashed again.
As was reported above, connecting two devices simultaneously causes crashes. Can only proceed by closing USB Sync or removing one of the devices. Both devices sync properly when it's the only device attached.
Occasionally, the connection status and sync status is not reported properly on the desktop. The mobile app shows it's syncing, but desktop shows an erratic status, and may not show it's attached or that a sync has completed.
However, even without documentation, USB Sync is preferable to iTunes sync. Thank you for working on this option for those of us are prohibited (by company policy) or wary of using the cloud.
Mac OS 10.8.2, 8GB RAM
1Password Mac Version 3.8.20 (build 31499)
1Password iOS 4 (latest beta)
1Password USB Sync 1.0b15
I am experiencing pretty much the same as "tgtpws". Sync seems to work, but numbers are not correct. Deleted items in iOS go to trash in Mac, instead of being deleted, and number of items stay the same, etc. Pretty confusing.
Also, I did not have problems with WiFi syncing in previous version, always worked great.
At least we are going forward. Previous versions did not recognize my data in the Mac.
Just tested the 1P USB sync between my iMac running 1P version 3.8.20 (build 31499) and iPhone latest Beta.
Just to be clear, you deleted an item in iOS and nothing else? Numbers of items do not decrease when you delete an item, it just becomes a trashed item and it is kept in your data file until you empty the Trash in 1Password for Mac. Once you do that, the number of items will decrease.

The USB Sync is still in a very early stage of development, so we plan to stabilize as much as we can.
I believe you're correct about the app not refreshing the item status on the Mac side after it pull changes from the iOS device. We'll try to update it after the sync is done.
The instability of the USB connection is likely due to the background USB/iTunes services that we're using to connect to your devices, the wireless iTunes sync does seem to destabilize that specific connection and we're trying to figure out how to prevent the USB Sync tool from using the Wi-Fi connected devices.
As for Apple making the iTunes Wi-Fi-capable, we're happy that they made the move but we're hoping that they'll make the next move by allowing the developers to sync via Wi-Fi. At the moment, there are no officially supported APIs for the wireless sync. That's why we've dropped it, rolling our own Wi-Fi solution was too unstable and Apple has a much bigger budget to fix this problem.
We're not saying no to anything and it is possible there may be wireless sync support later, the fact that we're trying to work on this supports this.
Now, with the USB sync, there are none of that complex settings, it's a simple USB sync tool.
We'll do everything we can to fix this.
Its not technically even possible to connect two ios devices with usb.
But how about sync with windows?
I connect one, sync to Mac ( 1P not installed ), disconnect, connect second ios device, sync again. Should/Could this work with the present or future USB sync versions?
I'm sorry for the lack of progress on this, Macworld has kept us very busy and we haven't been able to release an update just yet. We're working on it and hope to have an update soon.
This app will work with 1Password 3 data files as well as 1Password 4 data files, which means that the app is likely to remain a separate app in order to make it compatible with both versions.
It is possible we'll release updates to both 1Password versions to embed the USB sync but only after we're sure the tool is working properly but that's not our priority at the moment and may not happen.
We just published the latest b16 and it's our first public beta to be shared with public. In addition, we've opened up the public beta forum, please share your reports in there.
