Apple seem to have no regard for those who develop on their platforms
Discuss hmm they keep changing modifying and breaking all their API’s and HCI toolboxes interfaces etc etc, and if you’ve developed an app dependent on any of this stuff apple may stop supporting or completely kill the apples codebase your app rely’s on to function very rapidly over a short number of years.
An app I find essential and use every day means, I wont be upgrading my imac beyond 10.10 or my phone beyond ios 10 because of this, keychain2go is too valuable.
Ok after having purchased and tested this app for some time, I feel if safe to now say If you want to synchronise a keychain between your computers and iOS devices, then keychain2Go is really the best program I’ve found to do the job. I am now able to successfully add to my private keychain on os x and it is synced successfully to iOS when you have the iOS app open on the iPhone and it syncs in the reverse meaning any edit or additional items I make on the iOS keychain2go app then get synced back to my iMac via the background OS x keychain2go os x app which is purchasable direct from the jinx.de website or the os x app store.
I’ll be honest I initially had a few issues in setting this up, but some of that might have been down to a dodgy router that didn’t handle bonjour very well, My best advice is to read the FAQ in detail and remember that any personal and private keychain i.e. not login etc you want synced must be placed in the ~library/keychains folder and follow the advice under help>faq>misc section for a terminal command that will make it recognise other keychains placed there. and if it first you don’t succeed try a clear out of the program bits and reinstall and try again, because when you’ve got it working this is just dynamite and saves me so much time plugging and unplugging usb sticks where I kept my private keychain until Keychain2go but now its all editable available and synced on my iPhone – absolutely marvellous! Ive bought other password management apps 1password for instance but that could not work with my pre-existing existing keychain notes and I wasn’t going to re-enter over 500 keychain notes each crammed with information, 1password also worked out more trouble than it was worth, when it came to its auto entry feature and required way to many clicks to work, and it only does half what Keychain2go manages to and that seamlessly and cleanly, i much prefer keychain2go’s feature set, the syncing is awesome especially to an iOS app that works well.
don’t mind the few reviews here, the app has recently been so healthily updated, that each new version requires new rating and reviews every time, this a good app, and when you have it working, if you need keychain syncing, this will rock your world ;)
