AgileBits introduces 1Password App Extensions for third-party iOS 8 apps

AgileBits, the maker of 1Password, has been hard at work ever since Apple officially unveiled iOS 8 showcasing what the future of the application will look like on Apple’s upcoming mobile OS. With the latest news, many, many users will be happy with the focus on making logging in easier than ever before.

Among the many new features announced for iOS 8 is one called app extensions, which allows developers to make some functions of their apps available in other apps via Share Sheets. And 1Password will take advantage of this in a big way…

Here’s the clip:

Throughout history, the greats have always sought a “holy grail.” The Dude really wanted that new rug. Indiana Jones searched for… well, the Holy Grail. Today, we’re happy to say we built our holy grail: automatic 1Password Logins right in iOS 8 apps. The video embedded here, produced by our fearless co-founder Dave Teare, speaks for itself. Thanks to Apple’s incredible new developer features in iOS 8, third-party apps can let 1Password fill Logins without the user ever leaving the app. Yep, complete with Touch ID for unlocking the vault. Yep, it’s this awesome.
AgileBits also plans to take advantage of Touch ID support, another new addition in iOS 8. As you can see in the above video, users will be able to login into 1Password, as well as their apps and websites, by simply touching their Home buttons.

 You can find the current version of the app in the App Store for $17.99.
