I'm frustrated with the new Beta redesign. Whoever is working on this thing needs to remember one simple thing: Passpack is a password manager. Here is where the redesign has dropped the ball:
1) Dashboard - This is the new default screen upon logging in. Why? Remember, you are a password manager. Show the passwords first. You can have analytics tools, that's arguably useful, maybe even a differentiator, but not as the default screen. Now I have to click in a menu to see my passwords. This is the first extra click you have placed between me and my passwords.
2) Search Focus - Once I get to my passwords, how do I find the right one? Search, of course. In the old Passpack the search has default focus. Load passwords, type keyword, done, fast. In this redesign I have to click into the search field after load. This is the second extra click you have placed between me and my passwords. Default search focus.
3) Quick Copy Dialog. Now that I've found the right entry, how do I copy the password? In the old Passpack there was a button I would click. In the new one I have to click on a feature ironically titled "Quick Copy" before I get access to a button to get the password. Why on earth would you bury the copy password link?! Did you forget you are a password manager? This is the third extra click you have placed between me and my passwords.
So you have successfully doubled the amount of effort required to get a password out of your password manager. Ugh. Now I have to go and test Lastpass again.
