great job with MiniKeePass, but I’m missing the Custom String Field Support (http://keepass.info/help/v2/entry.html#advanced) as one major features of KeePass 2.x. Could you please add this feature in one of the next releases. For me it looks more or less like a key - value list.
Kind regards

I would like to see such a feature in the next version of MiniKeePass.
Many entries os my database have string fields.

Thanks in advance,
Glauber Ferreira

Could you please give an update, when your code is finalized. I saw, that only the GUI Part is missing. Or could you provide for the beginning the read only version?

@tatzel We're working on it when we have some spare time, but things have been busy lately.

The ability to at least display (even if not edit) custom fields would be a MAJOR enhancement to MiniKeePass. Many websites require multiple passwords (such as answering challenge questions when logging in from a public computer), and the ability to view this information in MiniKeePass would make the app much more useful. Any update on timeframes? Is this a technically difficult issue to address? Thanks for your great work!

This is very close. I have viewing working and editing fairly close. It'll require a lot of testing though once it's "done". If you're so inclined I just pushed a branch called "entrychanges" that contains these improvements.

That's great to hear. I would be happy to test the "entrychanges" branch. How would I go about compiling/installing it on my iPhone/iPad?

Unfortunately to actually install it on your phone it required a paid developer account from Apple. You could test it out in the iOS simulator using Xcode which is free to download.

Xcode Mac App Store link (requires a Mac obviously)

With Xcode installed you can download the entrychanges branch from Github:

Then open the project in Xcode.

From there you'll be able to test the new changes in the simulator, but without the $100 developer account you won't be able to run it on your actual phone, which means it may not be worth your time.

We're actively working on improving the code, so your downloaded code will quickly become outdated unless you use git to clone the repository instead of downloading the zipped snapshot.
