Tired of typing the same information into online forms over and over again? You might have noticed that a lot of forms for completing business and personal transactions online overlap. You might pay an iPhone bill, submit a health insurance claim, check on money in eTrak--and have to enter a lot of the same info into each form. Just thinking about my insurance company's flex benefits PDF makes me postpone the refund attempt for another day. And just try filling out a form on an iPad, let alone an iPhone.

RoboForm Desktop fills forms with one click. It pre-populates the form with static data such as name, policy number, and so on. You fill out the rest. Employees love the auto-fill-in feature; companies get improved productivity.

And oh yeah, it manages passwords in the same way.

RoboForm is the only password manager in our roundup that doesn't have a free version. A trial of 10 free log-ins is all you're allowed. It costs $29.95 for the desktop. The cloud-based and mobile services are subscription based, at $9.95 for the first year and $19.95 a year after that. RoboForm works on the iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, and Symbian. RoboForm Enterprise, which integrates with Active Directory and group policy for central management, is priced separately.
