- What's that?
Any way to sync, or export the data out of the app?
I really want a password app for my PlayBook, but I want be able to use it on my phone and computer, and have them all sync up. Would be a pain to have to deal with 3 different password apps and keep all the data up to date.

Great app!!!!! I just bought it. Very nice UI and easy to set-up. (I also like to "clipboard" option.)
Any chance to add an option to have a user-defined category OR to have sub-categories in the "other" category? I have a lot of different passwords in "other" and it would be nice to be able to categorize them.

F2, tellsells & ridesno159:
We have plans to include a Desktop Companion for this app (as a separate app sold directly by us) and as well as allow user's to export their encrypted password database to Dropbox to prevent data loss in case of a device failure. We do not have plans in the near future to create a version for mobile devices.
Our usual pattern of updates is to wait for the app to reach a certain threshold of downloads (break-even) and then start releasing updates based on user feedback. Once we reach this threshold, we will start releasing updates with the most requested features. The plan for the next update looks something like this:
1) Sync/Backup data to DropBox.
2) Desktop Companion for Mac and Windows that can keep the passwords in sync between your PlayBook and PC. This will be sold as a separate application which users can opt-in to buy.
3) Ability to add custom categories.
Once we reach a certain number of download we will start working on these updates. Please keep feeding us with your inputs, feedback and suggestions.
@MRPJR: Sorry, we don't read data from any 3rd party apps but we use the industry standard 256-bit AES encryption to encrypt your data and store it.
@F2: We will definitely consider that option.

Ascendo DataVault have no plans to develop a Playbook app so I need to move on. But I can't bear the thought of manually entering all my passwords. If a Desktop Companion is in the plans, would it be able to import csv files and then sync with Vault?

I really like the products by XLabz and this is no exception for me. I wish there were a few more templates, for lack of a better word, in the "Other" category. I sent a suggestion to XLabz for a template for Network Settings, i.e., router name, router password, SSID name, key code, security type, etc.... Maybe that will come eventually
But all in all, I have been very happy with my purchase of this app and any apps from XLabz. About the only worry I have is not drawing the initial password to open the app correctly when I'm not wearing my contacts or glassesThe Z10 will be my last BB phone; switching platforms.

I definitely think some form of web management interface for adding/editing passwords would be a major addition to the product. I would be happy to work on developing such a site with you guys, if you're interested then shoot me a PM!

Are there any plans to adding password protection along with the finger swipe? Give the user the option to use either. that way if the user forgets the swipe pattern, you can still get in with the password and reset things.
I love the Finger swipe idea.. alot faster than typing, but just an idea.
CRITICAL - High Priority Update for Vault – Password Manager
With the much awaited Tablet OS 2.0 update for the BlackBerry PlayBook around the corner we have been spending a lot of efforts in testing all our applications, including Vault – Password Manager, on the new OS to make sure that our users don’t run into any issues or unexpected surprises.
On running in-house tests we found that when you update your Tablet OS to 2.0, some of the files (which are used to save user’s preferences and other run-time data) are being deleted. Although reported to RIM developer support, we are unsure if this bug in the OS will be fixed prior to the final release.
To safeguard user data we have therefore released a high priority update that should bypass this bug without any loss to your valuable data. We highly recommend that users update Vault to the latest version 1.1.0 PRIOR to updating their device to Tablet OS 2.0!
This update also allows you to backup your data using your Dropbox account and restore it back when you need it. We recommend that as an extra precaution, users use this feature to backup their data to their Dropbox account.
Please note that the above scenario can also be prevented if you backup your complete application data using RIM’s BlackBerry Desktop Manager software and restore this to your device after the upgrade.
The BlackBerry Desktop Manager is available for download here:
(BlackBerry - Desktop Software)
To learn how to backup your data using this software check out the link below:
How to back up and restore a BlackBerry PlayBook using BlackBerry Desktop Software for PC 6.1 «Inside BlackBerry Help Blog
Apart from the features to backup/restore your data this latest release to Vault also contains some much requested new features including support for adding user defined categories and importing of data from KeePass exported XML files.
This update of Vault (ver 1.1.0) has already been submitted to the BlackBerry AppWorld and is currently under review.
We shall update this post once we have a confirmation and the update is available for download.
Vault for BlackBerry PlayBook Update - V1.1
We wanted to let you all know that the update for Vault has been approved! Users can now go ahead and download V1.1 from the App World.
As mentioned before, we highly recommend that our users update their version of Vault PRIOR to updating to Tablet OS 2.0 to minimize chances of data loss during the update.
Based on popular demand, here are the new features that we’ve implemented in this update:
• Ability to add your own custom categories
• Backup your Vault data using your Dropbox account
• Restore your data from Dropbox in case of a device failure or Auto Destruct
• Import data from your KeePass XML Files
Download Vault here.
We hope you will all enjoy the new and improved Vault!

How do you backup?
I am new to DropBox. Would like to backup my Vault data, how do you do that in 1.1?
BTW, really great app, very polished interface, I've enjoyed using it!
Update: Figured it out ... the Settings dropdown now scrolls; Backup/Restore/Import options are towards the bottom. Unfortunately, was not able to backup; in logging in to Drop Box, received a message that "Only a limited set of users can receive access tokens while this app is in development mode." Emailed support.

@drumrdfox Thanks for your comments and glad to know that you figured that out.
There was a small glitch with the DropBox configuration for this app and we have already submitted a request to DropBox to get this right. It should be resolved within 24 hours from now and we will notify you as soon as it is done. After that you will be able to Backup/Restore data from and to DropBox. There is no action required from your end nor do we need to release a update to resolve this issue - this will be automatically resolved as soon as DropBox moves the app to Production status.
Sorry about this and thanks for your patience until then.
