Perfect integration – ★★★★★
by cnebrera on Tuesday, July 26 2011 version 1.3
I have been using keepass with other OS but this is the best integrated solution I have seen. It works perfect with dropbox. Thanks for developing it!

Great stuff – ★★★★★
by Pdb0001 on Tuesday, July 19 2011 version 1.3
I used the upload from desktop via browser option. Works great on iPhone and iPad. Not used much yet but first impressions are good. Nice clean interface, like the search-as-you-type feature. Keep up the good work!

You guys rock !!! – ★★★★★

Congratulations Mr Vanhove. You are the first developer to do keepass for iOS with actual working dropbox integration. Everyone should be using this. A pleasure to buy and use. This is a very polished application. Works flawlessly. Which is a surprise.

Excellent – ★★★★★

As per the other reviews, this guy fixes and develops quickly and implements user suggestions.
The timeout feature is excellent, reading kbdx files now means I don’t need to use keypads triggers to export old db versions.
All in all a very good product.

Excellent – good to see continued development – ★★★★★
by Ronnie 2010 on Sunday, July 03 2011 version 1.1
If you used myKeePass then I recommend upgrading to kyPass. The developer fixes bugs quickly and I’m now able to upload KeePass files via the browser. It is great to now have an iPad version and many more new features enabled such as being able to view things in landscape mode on my iPod. Excellent KeePass application, highly recommended. Keep up the good work.

Getting better and better – ★★★★

Got it the day it came out, and each version release has been an improvement. You can use kdbx files, sync up and down to dropbox, search for entries. Good to be able to finally link my keepass pc to my ipad

Karaopocket v3 for iPhone/iPad 3

Karaopocket is back!

The Karaoke software most downloaded on Pocket PC is finally available on iPhone / iPad.

Karaopocket is now compatible with Dropbox.

For those who do not yet know, Karaopocket is a karaoke software that can read any file with the .kar format.
Thousands of files of this type are available freely online. (Go on www.midikaraoke.com, on vanbasco.com or on google for example and have fun)

Sing with all your heart with the help of your iPhone!

The next version will also support mp3+g support (cd+g) like in PocketCDG.

Usage:

The songs can be loaded in 4 different ways:

  • Link Karaopocket to your account Dropbox. Karaopocket will then download all the songs located in the / KAR your Dropbox.
  •  Using the web server of Karaopocket (+ button followed by ‘upload from desktop’)
  •  Using the iTunes File Sharing.
  •  Either by loading a .kar file from Mobile Safari and asking him to open it with Karaopocket.

When ?

Soon ! Karaopocket v3.0 was sent for validation to Apple yesterday.
Be aware !

Houston, We’ve a problem 11

A few of you have submitted a problem with the search function in KyPass 1.3: as soon as they press the button search, Kypass will turn off.
I can not reproduce this problem myself.
If some of you have a problem with the search function and a non-confidential database, please contact me via the contact form or a comment to this article in order to send it to me.
Thank you.


KyPass 1.3 is out 27

KyPass 1.3 is out.
The main feature is the support of the key file !

The name of the key file is the name of your keepass database followed by .key.
Thus, if your database is password.kdb, the key file is password.kdb.key.
For security reason Dropbox could not be used to synchronize this file, thus you have to use the function “upload from desktop” or use iTunes to send this file on KyPass.

Reminder:
The first time KyPass synchronizes your dropbox, it uses the /Crypted folder at the root of your dropbox directory.
Make sure that your kdb file are in this folder. (the filenames have to be lowercase for the moment)
If you want to use another folder, you could change in the settings panel.
