Version: Ultrasoft DataShield 1.4.5
Ability to create completely custom templates with an unlimited number of fields is outstanding. Only product I have seem which does that. For something like a credit card account that can have a dozen pieces of data with web site Id's, phone Id's, Quicken Id's etc, account numbers, etc. this is the only program that can contain everything without resorting to notes.
(1) One big negative is that the data can only be exported in an XML file, with no schema. That means its impossible to print or export to some other program, without writing your own software. For me, I want to be able to save a copy of all this in a safe deposit box, and this program won't do that.
Also, usability is kind of a pain. Compared to Splash ID, its a whole lot more difficult to use. For exmple, 2 clicks to copy a UID/Password to the clipboard rather than 1, can only select an account by leftmost column, only 1 column of data can be displayed, lots of white space that means are limited in how many accounts can be seen, miniscule (unreadable) icons.
