Best Windows 8 Apps
28 December 2015
Like other commenters here, I'm a RoboForm fan. I use it on virtually every platform including Windows (Win32 desktop version), Android and iOS. Sadly, the "Metro" or Modern version seems like something thrown together to meet the bare minimum requirement for saying all platforms are covered.
On mobile devices, I typically use RoboForm to copy and paste passwords into other apps. I rarely use the internal browser. "Unfortunately, the "Modern" version lacks the option to show the passcard on press instead of opening the site. Show passcard is not even available on the long-press menu. We have to actually edit the login to view it. Finally, we have to select the password and copy it to the clipboard and close the edit session before switching to the other app to paste it.
I really hope Siber Systems is working on a Universal Windows Platform version of this app that's as good or better than the Android and iOS editions.

Very user unfriendly

I HAVE DIFICULTY GETTING ROBOFORM TO AUTOFILL. WINDOWS 8.1
1 March 2015
As a current user of the desktop form of RoboForm, I had high hopes for this app. Unfortunately, it falls very short of the quality I've come to expect from RoboForm. I do not mind having the in-app browser--I get why that's necessary. HOWEVER, the browser is extremely slow, very prone to freezing and hardly communicates with the password fill-in feature. 90% of the time, the form filling didn't work at all or caused the app to crash altogether. Additionally, the user interface is very clunky and difficult to decipher. The buttons necessary for filling in the forms or generating passwords require a swipe from the bottom of the screen to show, which then takes the cursor out of the form that needs to filled. One would think this app could be written to run in the background and designed to recognize when form fields are present and to pop up a notification box to which the user could select to either fill in or generate password. Or at least allow the user to work with a split screen.

Wow, does this lack functionality when compared to the standard browser add in and the IOS App. About the only positive I can say is that it does synch passwords from other devices. And one can make it work...If one is looking for a Metro App password manager I advise one to look elsewhere. I'll keep using RoboForm because I primarily use Desktop and IOS.
Update--just installed the new update. Still seriously lacking. No differentiation between logins and bookmarks on the main screen. Also, safe notes are buried in the folders meaning no easy way to find them either. I use RoboForm over LastPass because also includes bookmarks. I hope RoboForm upgrades the usability of the modern app before I have to use it. Since I primarily use IOS and Windows Desktop, not a problem with lack of functionality at this point.

I am a long time user and so disappointed that they would even release this useless junk for the app store. Huge fan for windows version but it is totally useless for RT. By the way RT is also almost completely useless. I would like stick this surface pro 2 up the designers available orifice.

Been a long time user of RB but when I switched to Win RT I was totally disappointed by this version of RB. It beats the hell out of me why it keep asking for my everywhere user/passant and guess where I store that password! It behaves like every time I open the app it reads the logins from the cloud instead of storing it locally .

I've been using RoboForm on my desktop for years, just for a form filler.
You can't use it as that without having to create an account first.
I only got downloading this to use on Windows RT.
If you don't have Windows RT, you're better off using the desktop version.

This appears to be a first attempt product for the metro interface. The built in web browser is buggy and does not load pages correctly. The interface for looking at logins is non-intuitive and difficult to search through. There is a bar at the top of the app but who knows if its to search your logins or an actual URL -- you can specify which search action to take after you type in your term but really that is cumbersome.

What is this supposed to be? This may be the worst Windows store app I have ever seen. The problem are too numerous to mention but the bottom line is that it abandons the basic idea that when you are at a website you can see and fill your password info. You cannot rely on RF to fill in any more as website are constantly changing their addresses and login requirements. Many times you are left with a window with no login or you click RF and nothing happens but you are able to "show" the password and login. I would say this happens almost 1/4 of the time. With this silly app you are taken to a site but if it doesn't login you have no way of "showing" login info - there is no menu choice for that site like on normal browsers. What is the point of this silly exercise? Really?

We've been using RoboForm for years on our Desktops. When I got my Surface and found it wouldn't work on it, I switched to the free LastPass but then it started acting up and I saw that RoboForm had added Windows RT so I went back to them. It is seriously lacking features. I works but barely, I basically have to look up my passwords and type them in!

I've been using Roboforms for many years now, since the early days, and have thousands of logins. I use it constantly on my Windows 8 machine and on Android, etc. This version is really inferior in operation to all of the others. I tried to login to LinkedIn and it inserted the username and password just fine, but then tried to fill in the sign in form and I cannot sign in to Linked in on the Metro version. Bummer. I had high hopes. Since this is a new version, and I applaud the development, I am giving it 3 stars. It actually deserves less, and if this were my first experience, I would not have been a faithful user.

I use it across several devices and works great, with few exceptions that are more web page related than anything else.

This is the worst - rushed - half baked - not thought out app I've ever seen. Don't waste your time, until Siber Systems decides to do it with 1/10th of the level of functionality of the regular version of RoboForm - stick with the regular form. Can't even search for a logon - and of the five attempted logons I tried, three crashed (just closed RoboForm) - doesn't' seem to be any way to manage for instance your favorites - don't waste your time.

RoboForm, what the bleep were you thinking when you released this piece of crap? I have RF on all my PCs and on an Android tablet and it's great on all those devices.
This app, however, is horrible. It won't show you your passwords for sites. Instead, it automatically takes you to the site when tapping on the site icon & logs you in without asking. No option to just fill but not submit. No option to just display your username & password like all the other RF apps have.
This app needs a total overhaul. Until that happens, I'm uninstalling it.

Need to add a pop up blocker. Can't sign into a page due to pop up with RoboForm or manually.
Need information on security of browser and website logging into.

希望能快点更新！Please update more function！
29 May 2014
Missing a lot of features to be truly useful; the mobile web login is still better in many respects. Please continue to update!

will not reveal your passwords to you. Insists on opening your logins in its own browser instead.

With so many passwords for different secure sites, Roboform is necessary. Yes, it works through its own browser since the Internet Explorer on Surface can't incorporate it, apparently. But, like most internet users, we've come to accept that different browsers are expected or even needed at times. So, when you're on Surface and need the password, just use the Roboform browser and get the benefits of this great password manager. I've used Roboform for years and wouldn't give it up. Great to have it for my Surface 2 too!

I'm running this on an HP Omni tablet with 8.1 which replaced my iPad (not really well, but that's a different review). I already had the desktop version installed, but its hard to use while exercising on an elliptical. Its purpose is to let me easily login to Safari Books, Amazon, Consumer Reports, etch, while exercising. The version on the iPad allows me to easily search for logins unlike this app. With many logins not having search is frustrating. A work-around is to put your frequently used logins in a folder. The RoboForm home page isn't shared with the desktop version (BTW the home page doesn't work in the IE app - if it did, this app would only be useful for RT). I don't think browser security is an issue, especially for your trusted sites, the underlying protocols used when purchasing are the same regardless of the browser. For general browsing, I use the app version of IE. I used LastPass for a few months, it too uses its own browser.

I was so glad they finally got this for the Metro desktop. Although I prefer the functionality of the desktop version this one behaves like the iOS and Android versions. If only they could get a seamless GUI across all platforms I would give it a 5 star rating.

Does not work with surface RT. Hit and miss with logins. Not worth the download.

Come on guys ... I have been a happy customer for years and years on the desktop version. This Metro app was clearly rushed to market and poorly designed. It has little to no functional relevance to me, but yet it could be if you would make it even as functional as the Android version.
No way to reference passwords when offline, no way to view the contents of a matching passcard when online.
I was eagerly awaiting this metro app as well as the Windows Phone 8 app but both of these implementations of your great base product will only damage your reputation. Let's get the next release, which I hope will be vastly improved published, yesterday or the day before!
You desktop design and implementation is stellar! You do not have to re-invent the wheel just adapt it to these platforms!
Let's go team! Get 'er done!

it is dependent on a net connection to 'everywhere'
does not synchronize yet

Happy to see the RT version! Just downloaded and used... will come back to update to 5 stars after I use it awhile. Integration across desktop, tablet (surface), and phone. I love it!

I can not download and read PDF or tiff files from key websites I use for editorial work.

If you used the iPad app, the Metro version of RoboForm works in the exact same manner. You enter your password protected sites via the RoboForm browser.
I have an Everywhere license, so I was up and running in literally seconds.
