For its version 4, popular password aggregating app 1Password, from AgileBits, received a total redesign but need to be repurchased for current users.

1Password’s new design introduce  a cleaner and simpler interface: the toolbar features Favorites, which houses the most accessed passwords, and Categories, which contains most of the items that were on the previous app’s toolbar. Folders, another entry on the toolbar, allow for even deeper organization.

Gone is the pin code, you will need to enter your master password only once at launch. Sync is now available via Dropbox or iCloud. To Mac users, iCloud will be enable in the future version 4 coming soon.

Another new major feature is an all-new built-in browser what let you login with your stored passwords. This browser is a much improved version of the previous one with support for tabs.

As with the original version of 1Password, users can generate unique passwords for each site they use, and store the data using military grade 256-bit AES protection. Users can also securely store other types of data, such as credit card information, notes, and banking information. A single master password unlocks the app, allowing for the memorization of one password instead of hundreds.

This new version of 1Password (4.0) is available on the App Store now. While the regular price is $17.99, you can get it for a special launch price of $7.99. It requires iOS 6, and is a universal app that works on the iPad, iPad mini, iPhone, and iPhone 5. And according to the 1Password website:

If you purchased 1Password 3 for iOS after November 15th, 2012, let us know. Simply email your App Store receipt to and we’ll take care of you.

Note to users of 1Password for Mac: while version 4 is currently still in development, Agilebits has confirmed that it will be a free update to anyone who previously purchased the app through the Mac App Store, users of the non-MAS will have to repurchase it from on the MAS.
