Federico Viticci does some great digging on the new 1Password 4.1 update for iOS. The big new feature in this update is the support of URL schemes – a concept where a custom URL in Safari can invoke an action in an app on your iOS device.
In the article, Federico shares a bookmarklet that you can invoke in Safari, and the current page will open in the 1Password browser where you can fill in your credentials easily from the database. The testing I did over the weekend makes this function almost completely like the desktop browser plugin. Given the constraints of iOS, this is a great solution.
This is a fantastic addition to the secure workflows for 1Password that I wrote about last month.
