I've been using the phenomenal Safewallet program (Windows, Mac, Android, iCrap, BB, etc.) for a long time now.

http://www.sbsh.net/password-manager-safewallet

ADVANTAGES:
* Great flexibility in designing how you want your passcode cards to look, what fields to use, etc.
* Good integration with browsers.
* Multi platform versions, so your passcodes are with you everywhere.
* Dropbox integration, so everything is perfectly synced from device to device.
* Stand alone program, not browser based, and all data is encrypted at your computer or device before it gets synced.

DISADVANTAGES:
* You do need to pay for it, unlike the free tools out there (Lastpass or KeePass).

However, despite being a paid program, I personally feel that the look/feel/flexibility is well worth it over the free programs. It's not much at the end of the day compared to what you get. And the guys at SBSH are awesome!

Here's something interesting to go along with your question of whether LastPass is secure:

Nice try, but someone stealing the password hashes really does the data thieves no good - it would not give the attacker access to your password. The best they could do is run a brute force attack and use the hash to verify a good hit. If you have a strong password there is nothing to be worried about.
