1Password 4 for Mac Is Here, Kind Of

David Chartier:

After more than a year of work, 1Password 4 for Mac in the Mac App Store and will be available here in our web store in the next day or two!

I haven’t seen many people touch on this, but that last bit is suspicious to me. Why wait to release the version on your own site?

With an app like 1Password, I’d recommend you get it outside of the Mac App Store, not from the Mac App Store. You never know what features you may not be able to use in the future because of App Store restrictions — I wouldn’t buy it from the Mac App Store at all. I will be buying it from Agile Bits directly as soon as I can, but why make me wait?

I don’t get it.

UPDATE: Oddly enough, and without reason, 1Password 4 is now available on the website for purchase and download. Odd stuff. I bought it, installed it, and it is working.
