    Has to be 1Password.

    And dont be scared of the price. It very cheap if you think of the outcome of someone getting into something inferior. This is worth every cent and from the post above i think you can see that.

    Just to note, you can store all sorts of information such as passwords, notes etc from within the "Keychain" utility built right into OS X. It requires that you enter your administrative password to get into everything, so your information is only as secure as your admin password in that case. I happen to have a very long alpha numeric one, so that works for me. Unless I get hacked somehow.. it should be just fine.

    Another plug for 1Password, definitely an awesome application.

    BTW, if anyone wants to do a blog review on 1Password, PM me.

    thanks Doug. I would go with this but it doesn't store everything and Apple said it's low priority for updates so I think I'll be checking out 1password.
    Thanks.
