One of the annoying things about most password management services is that there is no good way to sync them to your BlackBerry without hooking up your desktop. LastPass just solved that problem for premium customers by releasing an app that lets you access your secure notes or sites from your BlackBerry. It lets you download your LastPass information from their server and store it on your BlackBerry with a password protected app. The app then decrypts your data and shows it to you in a bare bones searchable interface. Hopefully they can spiff up the interface in future versions.
The app has some nice features like the ability to use a built in browser in the app (OS 5.0+ only) to automatically fill in your login information. This is something that RIM should have done ages ago! Its not the idea solution but its the best within the limitations RIM has set. you can also add, edit, and delete your secure notes and sites from the app.
- Integrates with your online LastPass account
- Can view, add, update, and delete Sites and Secure Notes
- Launches URLs and Sites in BlackBerry Browser
- Starting with BlackBerry OS 5.0, embedded browser quickly fills login information
The LastPass service and app comes with a 14-day free trial after which you will have to subscribe to a $12/year LastPass Premium account to continue. You can pick up the LastPass app at this link in App World.
