What is new in this release?
1Password 2.9.16 contains a new WiFi Sync feature that makes it both easier and even more secure for iPhone and iPod touch owners to bring their personal data on-the-go. The new feature solves firewall conflicts and provides more power to users who need to customize syncing preferences. 1Password 2.9.16 also has tools to handle syncing conflicts if they arise, and 1Password touch 2.0 for iPhone and iPod touch, a free upgrade soon to arrive in the iTunes App Store, is required to harness these features.
In addition to a brand new WiFi sync feature, 1Password 2.9.16 allows users to unlock their Agile Keychain from the command line. Further, an improvement to 1Password's auto-update feature prevents user data from being accidentally deleted by application uninstallation utilities. The full detailed changelog for this release can be found on the 1Password site.
