[prMac.com] Toronto (Ontario, Canada) - Agile Web Solutions today released 1Password touch 2.0 for iPhone and iPod touch, the most significant software upgrade since its original release in July 2008. 1Password touch 2.0 now allows users to securely synchronize their Wallet items like credit cards and software licenses with the desktop version of 1Password for the Mac.
