Have both computers, plus ipad and iphone.

Do I have to purchase a separate licenses for each computer?

I can download the program for the computer from your website....correct

From the Apple Store, I can download the programs to 5 devices ( i.e, my wifes and my ipads and iphones) correct?

Thanks

    You can buy 1P for Mac either from the Mac App Store or direct from the AgileBits store. There are two things to bear in mind:

    1. If you ever want to use iCloud to sync 1P data between your Mac and iPhone you must buy 1P from the Mac App Store because the version from the AgileBits store doesn't support iCloud sync (following changes made by Apple on the launch of OS X Yosemite). Both versions support sync of 1P data by either local wifi or Dropbox.
    2. If you have owned an earlier version of 1P for Mac you may be entitled to an upgrade discount if you buy from the AgileBits store. That discount won't be available if you buy from the Mac App Store.

    If you buy from the Mac App Store you can install the app on any other Mac that uses the same Apple ID as you used when you bought the app (or which is part of a family sharing arrangement). If you buy from the AgileBits store the licence provides:

    Our software is licensed per person and per platform, not per device. Each user and each platform requires a license. Licenses can be shared by up to six family members living in the same household. Licenses can not be transfered or re-sold.

    Stephen- Thanks for your comments. Which do you prefer Dropbox or iCloud? And why?

    I'm not sure my personal preference will help you much as I use wifi sync. :)

    You'll probably find this knowledge base article more helpful:

    I think that tells me you don't "trust" the cloud with your pw's. ;) If true, I share your position.

  • Hey @texcpa,

    Just wanted to pop in here and give an opinion as well. Each sync solution has advantages and disadvantages. Some people prefer iCloud sync because it's all contained within Apple's ecosystem and they trust Apple with their privacy more than they do Dropbox. Many users — including most of us at AgileBits — love Dropbox. It's fast, very reliable, and offers a lot of control for sharing vaults and reverting to previous versions if necessary. It's also very useful for people with Android or Windows devices.

    WiFi sync, on the other hand, is great if you want to keep things out of the cloud. It's all a personal decision, really. If you prefer to have things accessible on a device automatically without having the other device nearby, WiFi sync isn't the best option. Dropbox or iCloud may suit you better. However, if you prefer to keep things local (on your own network and not communicating with the internet), WiFi is a great way to do that. If you have any questions about getting things set up, or anything else, feel free to let us know. :)
