UPM 1.1 Released

With this release UPM on Android reaches feature parity with the desktop version. The main features included with this release are,

  • Shared Database support
  • Delete Database support
  • Lots of bugs fixes and improvements

The shared database feature was the primary focus of 1.1. With this it’s now possible to sync your password database with the desktop version. For full details on how to setup and use database sharing see the user guide.

You can upgrade from the Android Marketplace or download the APK directly from Sourceforge.

If you have any problems post please use the Help Forum.

UPDATE: When you upgrade you may get an error telling you UPM is no longer available when you try to start it. To fix this you should restart your phone and recreate any shortcut you have to UPM on your Home screen.

For those who are interested this seems to be a problem with Android 1.5 and how it handles a change to the main Activity after an upgrade. If you have any experience or details on this problem I’d be interested hear about it.
