I use a password manager to store anything that is secret that I am likely to forget. eg combination locks, codes to identify me on the phone (eg phone banking), computer logins for different computers and different people I help, WEP passwords, domain keys, my wife's age and website logins. For this use I need it on something that is always with me and the only option is my phone.

These two options aren't mutually exclusive of course.

keePass looks like a good option. I will evaluate it for Android soon (Thanks to Brian Pellin for doing the port) and add it to the summary.

All the best

Good point. I pretty much only use KeePass for logging into my financial institutions as security is of utmost importance, and I only do this from my laptop or desktop. I've never considered having any complicated passwords for other sites.
