This might be worth snagging.
1Password for iOS has been updated, version 5.5 allowing users access to a Touch ID button under the Master Password field so you can choose to sign in using your finger print even if you accidentally hit cancel on the first request. Tapping the fingerprint button prompts the system Touch ID unlock screen.
The new version also features an improvement to how the app can stay unlocked between uses in different apps. Previously 1Password’s extension in other apps required being unlocked by password, passcode, or Touch ID each time. Now, the 1Password extension and 1Password app share the same unlock time limits.
A slew of bug fixes have also found its way to the Apple Watch version of the app and the program can now save credit card numbers with added PIN codes that 1Password can save. The app now lets you sync important passwords to the app with an optional added passcode over the app.
1Password for iOS 5.5 retails for US$9.99 and require iOS 8.2 or later.
