[1P8] Observations to the new design

Using 1Password 8 Beta a few days now and here goes my feedback:

  • New and Edit buttons are odd. Why not use an extended floating action button? Bigger and easier to press, and more in line with Material design. Also, the edit button could be at the bottom, just like the new button
  • As said here in the community, it's very hard to generate a password. Why not add an independent tab, like Bitwarden has? Just for the generator
  • While checking all items, it should be possible to set a default sort or, easier, remember the last selection. I like to use alphabetical sort, but it's tedious to change it all the time to find something
  • While unlocking the app with the fingerprint, the text field can be hidden for more pleasant animation
  • Bug: face unlock text on fingerprint unlock (Samsung, Android 12)
  • Bug: While checking all items, if the title is big enough, it can stay behind the new button
  • Bug: new button text is not vertically centered

Glad to help with more feedback if necessary


1Password Version: 8.8.0-139.BETA

    Hello @pjpc, thank you for this detailed and considered feedback! I will respond to each point in order:

    1. To my knowledge, the new item button is an extended floating action button. I can definitely see the benefit of doing something similar for the Edit button especially for single hand use or on larger phones. I will pass your feedback to the team.
    2. I've added your +1 for a dedicated password generator in the apps.
    3. The non-persistent search criteria is a regression the development team has identified and is working to fix. I've seen some movement on this with internal builds so hopefully we will have this in the beta soon.
    4. Are you referring to the brief flash of the account password field just before the key turn animation when unlocking?
    5. On devices where Face unlock is available the biometric unlock option defaults to that wording even if it's not in use. This is another one we're aware of and working to resolve. If this is occurring for you, tapping Face unlock will allow you to enable fingerprint unlock.
    6. From my understanding, floating action buttons will cover the part of the screen they are displayed over. You can see an example of this in the Material Design document you shared which I've included below. Are you seeing different behavior in 1Password 8?

    7. Just to make sure we're on the same page, you're referring to "+ New Item" not being centered within the blue new item button?

    Thanks again for all your input!

    Hi @ag_timothy
    1. It looks like one, but it seems smaller than the proposed dimensions by Material Design. Could be bigger, like the one on the image you shared. It's just a nitpick, really šŸ˜„
    4. Exactly! Other nitpick šŸ˜„
    6. Yes, it's supposed to cover the content, but the last row should be also visible, not hidden behind the content when I can't scroll anymore. One way to achieve this is setting the recycler view bottom padding to above the floating action button (if the FAB has 72dp, set the padding to 88dp, i.e.), and set clip to padding to false on the recycler view. You keep the behavior of scrolling behind the action button, but the last row scrolls above the FAB
    7. Yes, within the blue new item button. I think this happens because of changing the default size of the FAB and internal padding messes up with the vertical centering

    Hi @pjpc, this is definitely the time and the place to nitpick! Thanks again for your feedback and for clarifying those points. I've reached out to the relevant teams internally to share this feedback. If you come across any other issues or nitpicks feel free to let us know!

    Hi @ag_timothy
    New update came and here are some remarks:
    1) Home Tab and Second tab looks like the same thing. I think it got more confusing than the unified view. Since we can customize, why split it? Is there a reasoning behind the decision? Metrics or something like that?
    2) Watchtower is better positioned now. Unify again the first and second tab, and add as a tab the password generator. And if it could include a username generator, it would be neat
    3) Having settings as a secondary option is a good choice (accessible from top bar) and better approach than occupy the bottom bar for more important features
    4) The Edit button to customize the home page is better positioned at the top bar. Since it's an option that we're going to use the first time we configure the app, mostly, it stays better on top bar. This means that the big customize edit button on the list can be removed

    Hi @pjpc thanks for sharing your thoughts on the recent update!

    1. Reorganizing the navigation from a Home tab into a Home and Items tab is the first step for some changes to 1Password 8 coming during the early access and beyond. The Home tab is still where you can customize your 1Password experience to surface your most important data, and we have many ideas for additional tiles. The Items tab is the place where you can find all of your items, sorted by vault, category, and tags. As you noted, the Home and Items tab are both customizable.
    2. I'm glad the Watchtower positioning is working well for you. I believe I've previously added your +1 for a password generator so I haven't doubled up on that but I think if it was added, it would be great to have it front and center with its on tab in 1Password 8.
    3. I agree moving the customize button to the top bar feel like a more intuitive placement. With continued changes coming to the Home and Item tabs I suspect we'll see the removal of the now secondary customize button. If we don't see this change I will go ahead and file your feedback on it!

    Thanks again pjpc!

    Hi @ag_timothy
    2. I was referring to username generator. Like random words based in criteria. Like this one.

    In the meantime found a very big bug. On the latest version, when saving a new password (I was trying to save a new credit card), the screen is not closed, like it's not doing anything, but after discarding I had 50+ credit cards saved.

    Hi @pjpc, my apologies for glossing over the username generator part of point 2. I've gone ahead and filed your interest for adding a username generator to the app.

    As for the issue when saving a new item, that appears to be a regression introduced in a recent update. An issue has been filed for that bug and while I have no information regarding a timeline for a fix, the development team has marked it as a high priority. Sorry for any trouble it's caused you!
