If you've been wanting to play around with LastPass on your mobile device without paying the $12 annual fee for premium support, today is your day: the password manager just added mobile to its free tier. What's the catch? You only get it on mobile. Starting today, LastPass users will get unlimited use of the password manager on desktops or smartphones or tablets -- but if you want to sync passwords between your devices, you'll have to pony up for a subscription.

There's an extra caveat, too -- existing free LastPass users can continue using the service as they always have, but new users will be locked into the devices they start on. If you start using LastPass free on your phone, for instance, you won't have free access on your desktop. Check out the company's official announcement for the full run-down of subscription changes.
