LastPass for Windows Phone Gets a Big Update, Now Available for Windows Phone 8!

A major update to the LastPass Windows Phone app is now available in the app store - with support for Windows Phone 8 and a major overhaul of the user interface!
Most screens within the app have been updated, with new colors and more navigable menus, including support for Windows "light" theme.

Other updates include:
  • Identities support
  • Standard icons in the application bar
  • Jump list support for quick navigation between groups
  • Alphabetical sorting, including jump list for quick navigation to a particular site
  • A separate panel for Secure Notes
  • A Favorites panel and "favorite" option in the detail screen
  • Support for selecting the group name from the list, instead of typing the group name
  • Support for long text in the Notes field of a site entry
  • Add "pin to start" for sites and secure notes
  • A welcome screen and account creation wizard for new LastPass users
  • A secure password generator
The new app is compatible with Windows Phone 7.1+ and Windows Phone 8.

What do you think of the update? Be sure to leave a review in the app store if you are liking the Windows Phone app!

  3. Thank you for the update. The jump list is much appreciated. Also, everything seems much better laid out. For example, I never got used to swiping between the browser and the site list, and would always hit the "Back" button and exit out the app by mistake instead.

    One question though: Are the gradiant backgrounds displayed in the screenshots for WP8 only? I have only the default black one on my Titan, and don't see a way to change it.

    1. Thanks for the positive feedback! Unfortunately, we disabled the gradient on the WP7.x phones, because it didn't look good in our tests, it's currently enabled for WP8 only.

  4. I'm really loving the improvements to this app! The only thing missing for me, is making the app use the numeric keyboard when setting up a pin code, plus making the pin code boxes bigger & more centered wouldn't hurt too.

    1. We currently support alphanumeric pins, so do not display the numeric keyboard by default, but appreciate the feedback and will look at improvements.

  5. Where is the overhaul for the Android app? It looks like really bad. I'm not going to pay for this lazy excuse of an app.

    1. Unfortunately we don't have an ETA on the next overhaul for Android, we appreciate the feedback, though, and will continue to work to improve the app.

    2. I've been using LastPass for awhile as a free user and it is terrific, but, I've been holding off on going premium. I downloaded the mobile app and started using it and realized how unproductive I was by not bothering to authenticate to sites that I use LastPass on my laptop. I use the Windows 8 LastPass app, the browser plugins, and now the Android app. Between them and the security audit feature that you guys do (check to see if password reuse is dominant), you have probably protected my online identity more times than I'll ever be able to count. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

  7. Thanks Lastpass! I've been a LP user on the desktop and then iOS for years. I'm so glad to have this app on WP8. It looks great and works very well. It would be nice if we could sort our groups though.
