LastPass iOS Apps Get an Update!

In the wake of our recent 2.0 release, the corresponding updates to the iOS apps are now available! As with our previous releases, the biggest changes to the core functionality of our LastPass for Premium Customers app is support for attachments in secure notes, but the release also features an improved interface and the ability to save sites from within the LastPass browser.

LastPass Wallet also got an update, with improvements to make the attachment and sync functionality more robust.

LastPass for Premium Customers

 

Overall you'll notice the LastPass for Premium Customers app has a new look that's similar to Wallet. Navigation is easier and icons are bigger and more beautiful. What do you think?

As with our other updates for LastPass 2.0 and the Android app, you can also now add documents, PDF files, images, and voice recordings as attachments to your secure notes.

To add an attachment to an existing note in the app, tap the "Notes" tab in the app, and tap a note to open it. Select "Edit" and select an attachment type to then upload an attachment from the device's camera, previously saved photos, or the microphone.
Attachments are synced to any location where you login to your account. Currently, free users have up to 50 MB of encrypted storage, and Premium users have up to 1GB.

The app now also supports saving new sites in the browser, so when you're logging into a new site you'll be able to store it by hitting the "+" button after filling in the login fields.

Any sites added will be stored in your LastPass account and synced back to other locations where you login.

LastPass Wallet

The latest addition to our mobile suite, LastPass Wallet for iOS has also received an update, with improved support for offline changes and general fixes to make accessing and managing your stored data even better.

Availability


Both apps are now available for download on the App Store on iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad at www.itunes.com/appstore or on your device. While LastPass Wallet is free, LastPass for Premium Customers is still part of our Premium offering.

More awesomeness is on the way!

  1. Does this version use iOS KeyChain and it's Data Protection APIs?

    Does Last Pass work for android apps? For example, I got the mint.com app for my android, but I can't figure out how to get it to interface with the Last Pass app. If that's impossible, I'll stop trying.

  3. Can you please start working on the Android client again? UI needs a lot of work, we need it to be more ICS friendly. And a Plugin to Google Chrome for Android would be brilliant!

  4. Looks cool! Even if it was born out of limitations of the iTunes App Store, the Wallet app is a great idea and I hope it or its ideas make it to Android as well! A cleaner, simpler user experience (on android specifically) is the one thing keeping me from being able to easily recommend this to everyone I know. Anyway, I love the app and am happy to see my premium dollars being used to make incremental updates.

  5. I am hoping you have something already for the Android wallet from LastPass. If not, what's the hold up?

  6. Looks like nice interface improvements, but the post should have noted that this update requires iOS 4.3 or later, leaving older devices behind.

  7. I'm a 1Password user. The feature I enjoy the most is the web plugins. Makes filling in login information a snap as well as payment info, personal contact info, etc. It is also very functional on both the iPad and iPhone and syncs through Dropbox so I have my passwords everywhere I go. I was a little disappointed when they moved away from simple unlocks on iOS devices (used to be a 4-digit code, similar to unlocking your phone) to full passwords but it's more secure this way and the reverts to the 4-digit code (at least on iPhone) for short periods of time after the service is unlocked using the full password.
