New: LastPass for BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 is Here!

With the official release of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 on the horizon (rumors anticipate a release sometime in February), we've officially launched LastPass in the BlackBerry App World! The app is our Android app repackaged to run on PlayBook OS 2.0 with the Android Player, providing more convenient, on-the-go access to your passwords.

We're also excited to see a positive initial response to the app's release! Isaac Kendall of CrackBerry.com writes that the new app has given him "a user friendly way to take advantage of the awesomeness that is LastPass."

Similar to the LastPass app for BlackBerry smartphones, the Android app for PlayBook includes:
  • A built-in browser that allows you to launch and autofill your logins
  • The ability to fill registration and shopping forms in the LastPass browser
  • Adding and editing sites, secure notes, form fill profiles, and other data stored in your vault
  • Copy-paste from the LastPass vault to other apps

You can now find the LastPass app in the App World for the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. Note that it's part of our Premium upgrade ($12 per year for unlimited access to all Premium features), but can be tested with a 14-day free trial.

Best,

The LastPass Team

  2. Good to hear...but i think a native app instead of an android repack would be waaaay better! I use lastpass all the time and it would be awesome if i could get it on the PB as a native app!! Hope this takes place!

  3. I love LastPass but this isn't much of an implementation. The included Android browser is much slower and clumsier than the native PlayBook browser. Though I have tried the PlayBook LastPass app, I find using the native browser to navigate to LastPass.com in a new tab is easier. Then search, show password, copy, and paste into the original tab. That method is better than using the LastPass app.

    1. Thanks for the feedback - bookmarklets may also be a good option: http://helpdesk.lastpass.com/bookmarklets/ if you prefer the native browser.
