eWallet for Windows 8/RT 7.2 update

Windows logo

The new 7.2 version of eWallet® for Windows 8/RT is now in the Windows Store. This new version adds printing, a change to the show/hide password button, the ability to set the default card type for a category, and several other fixes and enhancements.

The new printing feature (always a popular request) allows you to print a single card, all the cards in a category, the cards in search results, or all the cards in your wallet. You access printing in the standard way, from Devices in the Charms area. Several users wrote to us that they didn’t like the default Windows 8 behavior of having to hold the show/hide password button to see the password. We updated the behavior so it’s sticky now, pressing the button will toggle and keep the password hidden or visible, whichever you like.

In other news, Microsoft recently announced Windows 8.1 (no official release date yet). This new version includes several UI changes, including more than two apps on a screen, that we think will make Windows 8 even nicer to use when not in desktop mode. We’re busy looking at all the changes now to see what we’ll need to do to eWallet to take advantage of the new features.
