Believe it or not, we’ve got another release for you all – Passpack Desktop!
We want you to be able to access your passwords at all times. Even without internet connection. The Offline Version on Google Gears was a step in that direction, but we’ve just found more advantages to a full-fledged Desktop application.
Thanks to Cyndy for pre-release feedback and breaking the news!
I Claim This Desktop As My Own!
Passpack Desktop is completely independent. You can use it as a password manager on its own or as a backup to your Passpack.com Account. Or all of the above. You decide.
To Sync Or Not To Sync?
It’s your choice. If you want to use Passpack Desktop as a backup to your Passpack.com Account, you are going to love this. You can now get all your passwords (and info) from your online Account into your Passpack Desktop with just one click!
Sorry Google. It’s Not You. It’s Me.
Leaving behind something as mighty as Google Gears definitely made us think twice [faint echo of Tara weeping in the background]. But sometimes a software’s gotta do, what a software’s gotta do. And this time Passpack had to take a new friend aboard – Adobe Air. A pretty fair exchange in my opinion.
“Adobe Air, this is Passpack.”
“Passpack, this is Adobe Air.”
I think they’ll get along just fine.
Google Gears is best compatible with Internet Explorer and Firefox, leaving a few browsers behind. We just don’t want anyone missing out on the Passpack offline fun. Of course… that said, we immediately have to eat our own words. As it turns out, AIR on Linux, the Encrypted Local Store doesn’t work (read: it won’t save your passwords). So for now – It’s Windows and Mac only.
But not to fret. We are trying to work Google Gears back into the Passpack brew… [not so faint sound of Tara giggling in the background].
Well, enough for now. We’re back to work on the next surprise.
