Great news from Agile Web Solutions today – they have got their 1Password for iPad updates submitted to Apple within the deadline for being in the iPad App Store on launch day. So if it doesn’t hit any Apple review roadblocks, it should be in the store for Day 1.
The pricing for 1Password for iPad is $6.99 – but the options for 1Password Pro and existing users of it and their cost for the new app get a little confusing (to me anyway). Hit the jump for details …
Straight from the Agile Blog post on this:
The money thing
After some lengthy Agile board room meetings, dry erase boards filled to the brim with really, really important diagrams, back-to-back PowerPoint Keynote presentations, and vigorous focus group testing, we decided how 1Password for iPad pricing will work by flipping a coin. Ok, just kidding about the coin thing. And the dry erase boards.
1Password for iPad will cost just $6.99. We built this version specifically for iPad owners who do not plan on owning an iPhone or iPod touch. It has a gorgeous interface that was designed exclusively for the iPad, which you can get an early peek at in our previous iPad posts.
1Password Pro will contain both iPad and iPhone versions for users who own both devices. Once Apple approves the update we submitted along with our iPad-only version, 1Password Pro will sell for a discounted $9.99 price, though this update is free to current owners (right now 1Password Pro is even cheaper at $8.99!). As we add more features to the Pro version in future updates, such as wireless sync for iPad and iPhone via MobileMe and WebDAV, the price will eventually go up to $14.99.
1Password standard will sell for $6.99 from now on and will not gain the iPad interface or some of the Pro features such as MobileMe sync.
I’m a current 1Password Pro owner, so I think this means I do not need to pay anything further for the iPad version – but I’m not sure of that. Honestly, regardless of how that pans out, I will certainly be running 1Password on my new iPad. It is an absolute essential app for me.
