In terms of user friendliness, however, keyOne is a mixed bag. For example, the instructions for most part are vague at best that you’ll have lots of trouble learning about the feature/functionality provided by the app. keyOne application is compatible with iOS versions 4.0 and upwards.


keyOne app for iPhone follows a security model that manages to safeguard your site passwords efficiently. The best part is that it limits your role to just remembering the master password only. The app does the rest. However, thanks to poor documentation, it’ll take some time for you to decode the working of the app in general. The option to email your password file in the event of a device reset also comes handy. Verdict: Try it out.
