All in favor of a KeePass port/app for PlayBook say I!
I've built up quite a password DB in KeePass and use it heavily on my PC's and my Storm 2.
Of course, I'm open to suggestions for other apps that may be as good or better, but it appears nothing of that genre for PlayBook yet.
I'm trying to make this thing my personal, portable, info repository!

So are you offering to write a PB KeePass app, or trying to convince someone else to do it for you?
(While I am a developer elsewhere, I have *zero* interest in Adobe Air or WebWorks, so I'm waiting on the native SDK and BlackBerry Java "Player" before I personally dabble in PB development.)
I've just posted a plea to developers in the KeePass forum:https://sourceforge.net/projects/kee.../topic/4519801
I posted a link to this thread, so keep the requests coming and maybe someone will bite!

KeePassAir from Singularapp
We are currently working on Adobe Air port for KeePass. It will be in the market in middle of June. It will have nice features like:
* dropbox synch.
* direct web page launch from keepass application.
* User interface designed for tablet experience.
we can keep you informed about application if you send a empty email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject "KeePassAir"
Check out our Air Hockey and Air Hockey Gold applications at the Appworld:

take it there is still no sign of keepass yet for pb
keepass would be great for my pb.
true it works fine from my torch but would prefer to have the larger display for viewing/editing.
i am not a dev and wouldnt even try so holden to those who can.
any updates very welcome.

The secret to all of this is the NDK, assuming you're okay with the KeePass 1.x file format. (KeePass2 is a .NET app, so its not so easy to port.)
You see, the portable KeePass version, KeePassX, is a Qt application. Given the NDK, getting Qt to work on the PlayBook will not be very hard. (Qt 4.8 added a whole new integration infrastructure piece that will make it quite easy, actually.)
So, if we port Qt to the PlayBook, and then recompile KeePassX (after porting its clipboard-management code), make a few touchscreen UI tweaks, I think its obvious what I'm getting at here.

I'm working on a KeePass port for the PlayBook named kiPass, so far I can access a KeePass DB on the PlayBook in read-only mode, but I hope to progress quickly from now on to a full featured KeePass app for the PlayBook.

I'm hoping to get KeePassX ported and usable to a "good enough" level, and made available in some form after the NDK goes public. However, being primarily a desktop app, the current version of KeePassX will still be somewhat awkward on the PlayBook from a usability perspective. (KeePassX 2 may improve on that, but its been in development limbo for so long that I have little confidence in it getting finished in the foreseeable future.)
So I'd definitely be interested in a KeePass-compatible app that's actually designed for the touchscreen UI of the PlayBook, and hope kiPass makes good progress.
