    Android Market Success/Blunders 

    Android Password Safe has surpassed 10,000 downloads, it’s really exciting when a weekend project turns into something people actually use!

    Having an app on Android Market has been quite an adventure. The download counter will reset every time I upload a new version of my application, then suddenly correct itself several days later. There is no upgrade notification for users who have already downloaded my app. The only way they’ll know is if they manually check for updates (lame). In addition to Android’s brokenness I created quite a bit of heartache for myself. After uploading the first version of the Password Safe I managed to loose the key used to sign the application. This caused considerable pain to the end users who had to export all of their passwords, uninstall APWS and then re-install and import their passwords.

    Even though Android market place has some serious issues, it’s getting the word out about all of the great applications out there and overall I’m pretty excited about the future of the platform

      I wonder why bother using password safe if you have the free Mashedlife.com?
      KeePass and Passwordsafe are safe and handy! But when I need to sync
      across multiple PCs, log on to my site from my iPhone, or share accounts
      with others, etc.

      I combine the best of 2 worlds by using MashedLife.com’s open source
      integration with Keepass and Password Safe!


      Stay productive!

      first, thanks, steve, for the android password safe! i normally use the gpg-topic-encryption feature of my emacs outliner (allout) for my passwords, and considering it’ll be a while before emacs is available for the G1 (though ConnectBot lets me use emacs on remote hosts, amazingly), some kind of local storage is great!

      i’m writing to note that there is an application (in the market) that tracks application updates, “OI Update”. not sure how well it works, but it’s notified me about a few updates, and at least is encouraging that much of the ecosystem can emerge in an open way. we’ll see – android together with google personal apps gets me so much further than anything else towards unified, portable organization that i’m happy with the baseline, will enjoy seeing where/how it goes from here…

    Android Password Safe 

    I’ve got my first working Android application together. It’s just a simple password safe with some decent features for a first release including:

    • 128 Bit AES Encryption
    • Password protected. Your password is needed to decrypt the data stored in the safe
    • All data is entrypted including notes, website link, description
    • Click through website link, will take you from your entry to the website.

    Here are a couple of screen shots to give you an idea of what the application looks like (Click to enlarge)

    Password Edit

    Login Screen

    Password List


    Plans for future versions include:

    • Fetching/Caching of favicons
    • Customizable encryption. Maybe 256bit AES, DES, etc.

    You can always download it and check it out for yourself. Let me know what you think and if you find any bugs or have ideas for improvements.

      Hi Steve. Great application. Maybe in the future can sync with another desktop application (1 password or keepassx). Congratulations.

      Hi Steve,
      I was thinking about upgrading to an Android phone but couldn’t find a password app in the store so this is great.
      One enhancement I would love would be to able to sync with a desktop app so secrets could be edited and accessed from both my phone and desktop.
      Thanks again.

      Hi Steve I would also like an application that can sync with a desktop application as well, also a search function would be good as this is used a lot in my existing password store.

      @Graeme this project is now part of OpenIntents and is not maintained by me. Check out http://www.openintents.org/en/node/205 I recommend filing a feature request with them.
