It has to right? I know it isn't released yet but I would love some clarification on this if possible. All Apple said at WWDC was that it would work on safari but on my iPhone, I never use Safari to access Bank of America, Capital One, Nationwide Insurance, etc. I only use the apps. iCloud keychain is going to give us more secure, randomized passwords, which I am all for, but are we going to have to remember each one individually to access the apps? I don't think anyone could remember all those unique passwords. I certainly can't. I feel like most of us use a banking, credit card, insurance, etc app.  It just seems to me that if we have to copy and paste this unique password everytime we access the apps, that severely reduces it usefulness and convenience and could potentially make me not use it. Which would be a real shame.

iPhone 5s, iOS 7.0.2

    There has been no announcement yet whether iCloud Keychain will be available for third party apps to tap into.


    It would make sense, as long as security was maintained, but it doesn't appear that Apple have created any API's that third party apps could incorporate yet. Perhaps it will come in time, same as the new TouchID on iPhone 5s.
