AgileBits, the development team behind 1Password for iOS and Mac, announced today that due to an upcoming change in Dropbox’s API, Dropbox syncing in version 3 of the 1Password iOS client will no longer work as of September 1st. Because the old version of 1Password has been discontinued, it will not be updated to work with the new Dropbox API.

Instead, AgileBits is offering the new and improved 1Password 4 at $7.99 the lowest price to date. The sale will last until Friday, August 16th. Since 1Password 4 requires iOS 6, some customers may not be able to update to the latest version. If that’s the case, those users will be glad to know that 1Password 3 will still support Wi-Fi syncing with computers on the same network.

AgileBits has also published a new FAQ document to explain the changes and possible solutions.

  1. They should have the decency to update old version to support the API change. They have already been charing a lot for their products.

    Is always like this… You have one product which relies on cloud services to be sync’d. The cloud service is evolving for its own and the customer advantages, and the product I own/bought doesn’t provide anymore that functionality. Who should pay for that? Dropbox? Agile? Me?
    Honestly, if Apple, Microsoft, etc. would have had the same kind of attitude with their customers that could result in a massive protest and subsequent request to the various Customer Association for unfair practices.
    But… problem solved with iOS7… and the magic return of the Keychain sync… so do we really need 1password anymore?
