......on my MacPro if I already have the less expensive iPhone Version on my iPhone and IPad Air?

If I decide to do so, where do I go to get that version?

    Do you ever sign in to web sites from your Mac Pro? Are you concerned to have strong and different passwords for each site, passwords you couldn't possibly memorize or care to type while looking at your iPad or iPhone? If the answers to those questions are all No, then perhaps you wouldn't need the desktop version.

    For me, it's much easier to add and edit records on the desktop. And you can only add attachments from the desktop, although you can sync them to iOS devices and see them there.

    If I had to choose between the desktop and mobile versions, I'd pick the desktop. Not that I'd like that choice very much either. I use both regullarly and depend on them.

    You get the desktop version one of two places. Either directly from the AgileBits web store or from the Mac App Store. If you want to use iCloud for syncing, though, you must buy from Apple's Mac App Store. The AgileBits version has no access to iCloud for syncing among your devices. Both version can use Dropbox for that purpose.

    Thank You and I imagine the Mac version will automatically use the same password ?

    Yes, when you sync data between 1P for iOS and 1P for Mac the master password should be the same on the Mac as it was on the iOS devices. (I say "should" only because there have been some minor hiccups with master password sync, which should be resolved in the new releases of the Mac and iOS versions of 1P when they come out.)

    I strongly second all hawkmoth says about 1P on the Mac. I find it much easier to work with than 1P on iOS and you can do things currently with it (like teaching it to login to a tricky site) that you can't at the moment do with 1P for iOS. (Then once you've tamed the login on the Mac you can sync the working login to your iOS device, of course.)
