I use KeePassDroid on Android and my current approach for pasting in
passwords is admittedly fairly cumbersome. Load that app, copy the
password to the clipboard, switch to the target webpage / app and
paste it in.
However, using my smartphone, it's not very often I have to paste the
passwords in. Once you've done it once, it is usually remembered by
most Android apps. If I was going to setup an SSH connection from my
phone, I'd use something like JuiceSSH with keys so that I wouldn't
need to bother with passwords regularly.
So it's only really logging into websites via the browser - and I
don't tend to do that too often, as most web services I'd want to log
That said, if you want auto-fill in a browser on a PC, I have used the
KeeFox [http://keefox.org/] browser plugin in the past with some
success to auto-login to websites. Maintaining the entries in the
keepass database to keep this working can be a bit tedious though, so
I'm not sure it's worth the effort. It's about to be completely
re-written to match Mozilla's new vision of API for plugins.
