Comparison of Keepass apps for Android

This page was created to give you a short overview of the features of Keepass2Android vs. Keepass2Android Offline. As Keepass2Android is based on Keepassdroid (by Brian Pellin), there are quite a few similarities here, as well, so we added Keepass2Android vs. Keepassdroid comparison as well. "Better" properties are highlighted in bold. The page was created in 12/2013. If any information is out of date, please leave a note in the comments section.

One crucial diff is KPD uses the clipboard, while K2A doesn't, so avoids that security hole. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/236014197_Hey_You_Get_Off_of_My_Clipboard_-_On_How_Usability_Trumps_Security_in_Android_Password_Managers
