Couple of Bugs and improvement idea for F-secure keys
After using keys for a while on iPad and Android platforms, here is couple of findings:
(Sony-Ericson Minipro SK17i, full sliding qwerty keyboard)
screen stays 'landscape' no matter what I do. Annoying since I prefer the sliding keyboard. Still no big deal.
Ipad 3 (bug):
While using password generator, it is impossible to uncheck any of the option boxes (A-Z, 0-9, special character). Annoying when trying to generate password for a site that doesn't allow special characters.
any platform (annoying feature):
- space is, of cource, a special character, however it is really, really annoying in some cases... I had one occasion that I had to log in on a computer that didn't have Keys installed, so I just read it on the phone and typed it manually... ...and after many retries noticed that the first charachter was space...
I do have 40+ accounts managed by Keys. I first just added those in keys as they were and started changed the passwords to more safer ones, every time I have had time to do it. Now I can't remember which I have allready changed and which ones I have forgot to change.
Would it be good idea to add warming for weak password (f.ex red backround) on a main view.
Keys' user interface is good and simple and program works fast. Please keep it that way.
Couple of weeks back I tried to find a device which you are using to see what's up with that. Couldn't find one from our test labs nor from likely on-line stores. Seems like it is discontinued nowadays. Hence it is tricky to figure out what is exactly happening and what would be the likely fix.
I created bug report about the iPad3 issue for our development team.
Password on-screen readability will be improved in future releases. The font used to render the plain-text readable password is not optimal.
I must say; I totally love the idea of "heat map" type of behavior in the main password list in case there are poor passwords stored! Will pass this to our designers.
The iPad3 bug you mentioned with password generator checkboxes was fixed in the 1.2 update we did via iTunes about a week ago. Can you confirm if you still have the problem of not being able to uncheck specific character categories in the generator?
ipad3: Problem with chekboxes is fixed now.
android: yep, it is discontinued model, as it seems to be case with all real-keyboard devices nowadays. Propably only old dinosaurs like myself still prefer those instead of onscreen keyboards
Btw. Must have had a brain short-circuit or something while typing the first message: I ofcourse, meant that screen orienting won't switch to 'landscape', no matter what I do. Anyway, like I said, it is only a minor issue -not a real problem.
Lets hope that your dev team finds a way how to implement the heat map and still keep the simple, clean UI.
