If there's something that provides value that is missing, we'd like to add it.
If you're simply looking for an native desktop application where you can view your information, you could
try LastPass Pocket available from the download page.
Currently LastPass only covers some of these platforms - in particular it doesn't yet have full support for Windows Mobile
LastPass is tied to a subset browsers
I am concerned (actually VERY concerned) about the security of these and I would like to see some "official" documentation demonstrating the security of the bookmarklets.
How about starting a fund specifically to start the process of verification of LastPass security?
The secure data is MINE
The database format is open and supported by several applications

You can use the LastPass bookmarklet on Windows Mobile with OperaMini....as well as a host of other browsers that you might not
be able to use with other password managers (eg:Chrome).

This is true, but we try to work with as many browsers as possible.
We didn't want to become just another desktop password manager - we want to make things easier for users.

We'll update our FAQ to address this.How about starting a fund specifically to start the process of verification of LastPass security?
3rd party verification is in our plans. Doing it while we're still in beta, with frequent releases, doesn't make sense.
Having said this, each time you update any software on your computer, do you seek out developers who have verified
each and every line of the code? Do you know these developers personally and know their relationship with the company
promoting the software? My point is that it no matter the level of verification, it always comes down to an issue of trust.

We have gone out of our way to avoid gaining access to any of your data.
We have also gone out of our way to make sure you can export your data anytime, from anywhere - and even reimport it into FF.
We allow you to export your data in CSV format from the plugin, from the website, and from a standalone crossplatform desktop application.
We hope to come out with a version that supports local-only, or, the ability to let you choose what data you want encrypted and sent.
I completely realize why you and others might want to run KeePass.
I don't mean to attack KeePass or any other password managers.
Many of them, includign KeePass, are very good.
It satisfies a need just like LP does...
LP is evolving rapidly...largely based on community feedback.
You have some valid concerns - some of which can be addressed...and we're working hard to address them and make LP even better.

If I could sync my passwords both ways at home, I'd have all my passwords available everywhere. Currently I have to enter passwords I create/update at home manually into KeePass. Because of the volume of passwords I have, I don't want to continue doing both. Without this feature, I'll most likely move solely to KeePass.
