It’s only been just over a week since the iPad version of eWallet was approved by Apple, and I’ve already got an update – with some cool new features – to tell you about!
The big news is that we’ve added a method for backing up and restoring wallets from email in eWallet for iPad. Just select a wallet and click the Backup button to send a copy of your wallet to yourself via email. You can also move wallets into eWallet on the iPad by emailing them and opening the attached wallet on your iPad. eWallet will automatically save the wallet and open it on your device.
It’s a great way to move and restore wallets, especially if you aren’t using a desktop computer to synchronize with. And to those with iPhones, the announcements regarding iPhone OS 4.0 suggest that we’ll be able to add the same functionality to eWallet for the iPhone and iPod touch in the future.
We also improved the tap and hold functionality. A number of eWallet functions (renaming field labels, accessing the password generator, and changing field types) are accessed by tapping and holding on a field. With this release we’ve tweaked that function a bit to make it a little easier to use.
And we also released eWallet Lite for the iPad this week! eWallet Lite for iPad will let customers try out eWallet before they buy. Just like eWallet Lite for iPhone, it limits you to a single wallet and 10 cards, but it has all the other features you’ll find in the full version of eWallet.
