I have a hack that works, but it's just a hack ... as follows:
- Use FolderSync to mirror the password store to /data/local/password-store on the device. Device is rooted.
- Use a couple of shell wrapper scripts around the gpg utility (which is available as part of zshaolin) to do the decryption.
- Use Tasker to pull it all together: list available passwords, select one, enter passcode, run gpg wrapper and display/clip the result.
This solution does leave the password in the clipboard.
On the other hand, I do find it absolutely essential to have my passwords available when I'm on the go.
There is also a nascent initiative to create an Android app for pass here:
