I've been using 1Password on the Mac forever. I had the last version of the App on my iPhone and iPad. Managed to shatter my iPad so I went out and bought a new one and a new iPhone 5 as well.
Figured it would be a good time to update my to the new 1Password app....v4.1.2. I have been banging my head against my macbook all night. I'm not even sure what happened. It used to be so easy...open 1Password on the MBP, open the 1Password App on the iPhone/iPad and the sync was done automatically. Nothing to it.
Now, as far as I can tell, I have to set up a dropbox account or something? It took me a good two hours to limp my MBP's info onto my iPhone and I honestly am not sure how I did it exactly. Then I read something about a USB tool which I tried. It told me that there were 469 records on both platforms. The iPhone showed 44. I started all over again and this time I believe I got all of my info transferred.
Since I was on a roll I decided to try changing something on my MBP. I synced via iTunes...that did nothing on the iPhone. So I tried the USB tool. This time it showed there was one change...one less record on the MBP. So I clicked sync. It then said it copied the record I had deleted from my MBP to my iPhone. But that didn't make sense...I deleted it from my MBP and it was already on my iPhone.
At this point I give up. I've tried reading all of your blogs and instructions and I'm sure there is a good reason why the new system doesn't work as well as the old one did but in all honesty, had I known what I was getting into, I would never have spent the $18 for the app.
If there is some simple fix that has completely escaped me please let me know what I missed. I'm at a total loss right now. I just want 1Password to work like it used to.
I'm not familiar with Dropbox, but doesn't Dropbox copy stuff from my computer and put it out there somewhere in the cloud? Doesn't that just put my password file (which is apparently more crackable than I thought after reading your blog today) out there in the ether as opposed to just being on my hard drive? If someone can hack a Dropbox password aren't I more exposed than just using old fashioned wifi?
Sorry for the long post. Just reallllllly confused and disappointed.
