What's a good way to share passwords among members of a team?

A few days ago, my Twitter account was hijacked. I accidentally clicked on a link I shouldn't have and voila, instant DMs to all may followers soon came after. As you would no doubt guess, much hilarity ensued.
I've changed my Twitter password to something much stronger, so that's taken care of. A good friend of mine who is also a security analyst recommended I check out a password protection application like 1Password or KeePass.
While I'm considering both for myself, that got me thinking. Right now, various members of the team I manage share various passwords using a locked spreadsheet. Obviously, this isn't sustainable since I've heard they can be cracked. I'd like to switch to something a little more appropriate as a password vault. Here are our rather simple requirements:
- More secure
- Easy to use
- Multi-platform (primarily Win7, some Mac, Android, iOS)
- Cheap-ish or free
Any ideas? Recommendations?
