This app is a utility for generating and retrieving passwords using pretty patterns between dots.
It lets you enter a graphical pattern and a plain text seed word, and then generates a password based on this unique combination.
As long as you enter the same pattern and seed word the generator will always output the same password.
So as long as you remember the pattern you've chosen and your seed word, you can get your password back. But unlike other solutions your passwords are never stored on your device or sent over the net.
There is also a Mac OS X version of DotPass available in the Mac App Store. So you can easily access to the same passwords on your mac as well.
== Single pattern use ==
An easy way to use this is to design a single secret pattern that you remember, and use this together with easy to remember plain text seed words like "work email", "school" or "domain.com" to generate hard to guess different passwords for all your accounts.
This way all you need to remember is your pattern, and you'll be able to get your passwords back if you need them again.
When it's time to change your passwords you can just pick a new pattern and generate new passwords using the same plain text seed words.
To make these passwords secure you must of course keep your pattern and seed words secret, just as you would with your password. If you are worried about someone looking over your shoulder you can use the privacy settings in the app to hide the pattern and seed after entry. For added security the app automatically resets if left in the background more than a minute.
