This project's Mac version needs a clue-by-four from Jakob Nielsen. It's like running Xenu under Wine. The first major red flag I saw was quick enough: the options to connect include a greyed-out option to use Windows login authentication. Really? On a project that claims Mac compatibility? The look and feel needs a clue-by-four for Mac users who don't wish they were using Windows 95/XP. But the most serious problem I found presumably affects non-Mac users as well. If you try to create an entry (not a database), there's a nice option to add an entry, but woe to you if you go looking for adding an entry in the menuing system. There's at least one good option to create a complete new database, but there is no hint of a way to add an entry that I could find in the menus. You guys seem to have the back end programming down pat. Mind giving the front end some attention? This review posted as a review after multiple failed efforts to enter it into the bug tracker, where it belongs, didn't work.
Very useful project!
The best open source software for storing your passwords safe! Very useful and simple, thank you!
