I’m trying out Codebook because I wanted something easier on the eyes than the other app that I’ve used for years. I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll stay with it, as I would be settling for some loss of functionality at the gain of a much nicer interface.
I’ve read the FAQs and some of the posts, which cover some of the points I’m about to make. But I’ll reiterate those because I think they’d greatly improve the app if you decided to move on them. Some you’ve said are works in progress.
Things I want to see:
-PW expiration dating and flagging. No PW should exist forever, and Codebook should have a background calendar or counter to enable PW outdating and a reminder-to-change function.
-Minimize to taskbar notification area while unlocked. I don’t want it in the taskbar when I’m not using it, but I want to click on the icon to get it back up. Secret Agent is great and all that, but I don’t want to have to log in each time I want something from the app.
-Sync when closing/locking. Manual sync only is clunky and primitive. You can do better. I want the db to sync by itself when I close the app for the session.
-Sub-categories. Come on, you know you want to do this, and the users want it, too. Put some dev time on this and make it happen.
You’ve got a nice looking app here in its formative stages. Make these suggestions happen, especially the first and fourth, and you’ll improve it 200%.
