eWallet for Metro!

As many of you know, Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 operating system will feature a new Metro style user interface as well as support a new category of Metro style apps.

You might wonder what this means for our eWallet® product. First, from what we can tell so far by looking at the Windows 8 Release Preview, our current eWallet 7.4 product should run just fine (it looks just like it does on Windows 7). Second, we’ve been working on a Metro version of eWallet that has the look and feel of a metro-style application.

eWallet for Metro will only run on Windows 8 so we’ll continue to support our existing eWallet for Windows product. You can see and install the free “preview” version eWallet for Metro in Microsoft’s Windows Store if you’re already running the Release Preview version of Windows 8. The preview version is certainly not full featured at this point, but it will give you an idea of where we’re going with the look of the product on this new platform. Check it out if you get a chance, and as always, keep the feedback coming!
