Enpass is a native BlackBerry 10 application that is purely designed to store your passwords and important information. The reason I like this one over some of the others we have looked at is down to two reasons. The first being that is is native - rather than an Android port. And secondly, that it allows for two cloud syncing options.
I realize that for many people, cloud storage is somewhat frowned upon and this clearly comes down to trust. As well as Enpass having a backup and restore feature using the web, you can also sync your passwords with Dropbox which sounds pretty darn sweet if you ask me. Of course, you don't have to sync at all, but just bear in mind that if you were change to a new BlackBerry you would lose your saved information.
Once you launch the application you will need to create a password to enable you to access the app each time. Within the settings you can alter the auto-lock time - just in case you leave your BlackBerry unattended.
Creating a new entry is simple - just tap the + tab at the base of the display. You'll then be prompted to select from a category. These range from credit cards to travel. Within each are sub categories, so for example if you were going to enter a computer password you would then have the choice of choosing from a further eight options. Once you fill in the boxes and press save the entry will be created. Up at the top of the display there is a star icon. Tap this if you want to add it to your favorites.
Jumping into the main menu you'll have shortcuts to not only the different categories, but also your favorites, folders and all items. The user interface is typical BlackBerry 10 - which means for easy and friendly navigation.
Enpass is cross platform so if you do use another phone as well as your BlackBerry you'll be able to access all your saved passwords there too. There is a desktop version of the app coming real soon for both PC and Mac and this will certainly make the whole Enpass experience much better.
Enpass is free to download for all BlackBerry 10 devices but the features are limited. You can pick up the Pro edition from within the app. This cost me £3.50 which isn't cheap, but I'm seriously considering using the service long term so it will actually be pretty good value for money.
As I said, this won't be for everyone, but if you are happy to store your information in the cloud then Enpass is a great choice.
