This application 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 (like "facebook", "work email" or whatever makes sense to you), 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 an iOS version of this app available in the App store allowing you to access the same passwords on your iPhone or iPad.
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 after entry, or automatically quit and remove any copied passwords from the pasteboard after a while.
