Native iPhone & Android Application
A native application for the iPhone and Android mobile operating systems
As I said a native Android application would be awsome, even worth paying for, and if we can add a widget support, it would it iceing on the cake ......
Adobe will soon provide Adobe Air runtime on Android, so providing a native Android application will be a simple port of Passpack Desktop.
Please check out our web-mobile version here: http://bit.ly/cv4MG4

I am highly debating on moving to another platform that has native iPhone, Desktop & Web. Native iPhone would be tremendous!!

Native Android app please - for years you have mentioned the mobile version of the site but, for me imho, it falls (way way) short of a good native application.
I don't know if this has been stated, but it's nearly impossible to differentiate between passwords on the mobile site. We use this to store passwords for the customers we support. As such, the passwords we store have long names beginning with the client name. You can only see a few characters on the mobile site, so we'll have 15-20 different entries that all look the same. Without a way to scroll through the password names, the mobile site is useless in our situation.
what is the problem to develop an mobile version of the air application?
Air is availible for mobile since minimum two years.
Of course we are all aware of the existence of the mobile version. Nowadays a service without a native mobile app is a show-stopper. Personally I implemented some mobile editions of web applications, but for a web application this can be only a temporary solution.
So please outsource this or whatever, I would pay a premium account just for an iOS app. But if I can't see "Planned" on this suggestion in the near future I feel impelled - and for sure lot of other users - to move to your competitors.
Please, please roll out a native app with offline storage. There are many easy options coming out once-a-week on the appstore that it is getting very hard not to jump-to-the-dark-side.
You guys have no idea how many more new users you can pull in through a polished native app. Plus you'll also be retaining the existing customer base from going with another password manager that has a native app.
Common guys... Would happily pay for a passpack app like 1password... Maybe outsource it to another company? Mobile app is not really that good...

Hi Sam, can you contact me at email@example.com, please?
It needn't be that difficult, or time consuming. You could use http://www.phonegap.com/ to ease cross-platform development. Why have you been holding back so long on this? Do you want help? I'll happily work with you to make this a reality :)
Build native apps! It's hard to convince people how good Passpack is when you don't have your own native apps for mobile, with offline storage. I just bought 1Password for my girlfriend because it was readily available from the app store. She doesn't want to have to have an internet connection every time she needs a password. Passpack is a much better product than 1Password, but you're definitely losing market share now. I've been recommending you ever since I signed up, but that position is becoming untenable without native apps. Please please please build an iOS app.

I've been an enthusiastic user and advocate of Passpack for many years. Your product and style were quite appealing. However your silence on the standalone mobile app issue is very concerning - I have to wonder if you've now given up in this business and are just letting your user base drift away? If not, you probably should say something encouraging on this subject soon. The move to mobile is very real, as I'm sure you are aware, and "checking out your web-mobile version" just doesn't cut it in 2013. I now struggle to recommend your product, solely due to this shortcoming.

I can't manage to have the mobile version working on Opera Mini.

@Tara Are you trying to use the mobile version? Is poor, the copy and paste is horrible. In too many situations i had to check passpack mobile and after write in a paper the password because it isn't working fine.
An offline app for Android please!
Ryan Anderson commented
@Tara, a mobile version of the website is far less convenient than a native app and the user experience using a native app is 10 fold over the mobile website.

Please, please, please make an app. I looked all weekend for alternatives and none are as good as passpack, except for the fact that logging in IS A COMPLETE PAIN!!! The device pin does not work because it associates with an IP address so it is not reliable.
Even if the app just remembers the device and automates the login, that would be helpful.
Philip Greene commented
I like passpack, but I agree with others that it just takes too long to load the browser and log in. There needs to be a dedicated app that makes it quicker to access the database by just typing in the pass phrase.
Looking for alternatives now. If a dedicated app ever gets created, I might come back.

Passpack really needs a native (offline) app for Apple & Android please!!!
I use Roboform right now, and I love their offline/native app. It is so handy, and I love that I can still access all my passwords even if I'm not online, but then the next time I do come online and open the app, it'll ask me if I want to Sync my RF-app-passwords with my RF-online-passwords, and how I can set the sync-reminder to either Daily, Weekly, or Monthly.
Another great reason for the app is that it's just one icon sitting on my phone home-screen and with one-tap I can access my passwords (after entering in just my master password).
Whereas with Passpack-mobile, we have to:
1) Open the browser,
2) Wait for the browser to load,
3) Open a new window if I was in a previous window and want to save that for viewing again later,
4) Type in and spell out the entire passwords website url,
5) Press enter,
6) Wait for the page to load,
7) Type my username,
8) Type my password...
Even though Passpack is mobile-supported, that's not very convenient at all!
A 'native-app' (for both Apple and Android) WOULD BE very convenient!!!
PASSPACK, PLEASE CONSIDER & IMPLEMENT THIS SUGGESTION!!! :D
(Just look at all the comments and votes that are wanting a native-app! PLEASE LISTEN!!!)
Just an FYI the link to document bugs "mobile preview feedback forum" is coming up 404
