"Works good`"

 |  Version: Steel 1.1.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This product works pretty good. I like the simple interface. It's also nice how you can have multiple password documents. I was a little confused when I first got the program. So basically if you have multiple computers you can take the password document (which has all your password) and use it on another computer. Of course you'd have to have another copy of the program on the other computer!

Nice program.

"Not so great"

 |  Version: Steel 1.1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I don't get what all the celebration is for - I tried this app and found some serious shortcomings.

The most serious shortcoming with Steel is that it confuses columns when switching between single and all category views. If a category has columns in a different order and layout, then in the "All Categories" view, the data remains in its place on the grid, but the columns change to whatever the labels are set for in All Categories. I hard to believe this got past the developer, but there you go, a serious display bug that depresses usability tremendously.

In any password storage app, single-click buttons are expected for copying the login and password, and also to visit websites. Steel got one out of three. Come on, give me a reason to use Steel over Keychain! This is basic serial storage functionality, and Steel should have it.

Maybe Steel will improve with age, but for now there's better alternatives, both shareware and freeware. It's too bad, because Steel has a wonderful look and feel to the GUI, and it's got solid storage. Don't forget the cool app icon - the importance of which can not be underestimated.

Excellent application. Excellent support by author. Love the blowfish algorithm support for security. Wish it had an easier way to duplicate records within a category.

Gabriel was quick in responding to my issue below. He suggested I change my name to my full name and that's all it took to get registered and back into Steel. Thank you Gabriel!

"Perfect"

Summary

I've tried a number of other password management programs ... and this is the one I bought. It does exactly what I want, it's good value, and the interface is just as it should be. Highly recommended.

"It's good."

August 07, 2004  |  By morbidity

 |  Version: Steel 1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
A good start. Would like to see a *few* more features added (text style, ability to change number of fields, add custom icons) but a great UI where others have managed only ho-hum-ness!

Developer contact address fundamental ... lack of one means the developer is not interested in feedback from users!!
