MP no longer works on mac - how to transition

The Master Password mac app grew slower and slower over time, and now it takes more than a full minute for it to process my password.
Also, then I am typing the website name, each letter of the website takes several seconds to appear.
I am guessing MP will be discontinued soon, so I don't think I will be able to get a fix for this, so I installed spectre for iphone in my mac, which works fine, however it does not have any of my passwords.
Is there a way for me to export the data from MP into the spectre app from a mac? If not, can I export it to the CLI tool?

    Hi Kira,

    You should be able to make an export file in your Mac app (or access your CLI app's files under the hidden .mpw.d directory in your home directory), and right-click them to "Open With" -> "Other" and select the "Spectre" application you have installed. You may need to switch "Recommended Applications" to "All Applications" in the dialog.
