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.

Windows 8.1 Preview

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.

eWallet 7.4 for Mac OS X Update

eWallet logoWe’re happy to report that the new Mac OS X version of eWallet® is now available in the Mac App Store. This new version fully supports Apple’s App Sandbox technology:

The App Sandbox in OS X helps ensure that apps do only what they’re intended to do. App sandboxing isolates apps from the critical system components of your Mac, your data, and your other apps. Even if an app is compromised by malicious software, sandboxing automatically blocks it to keep your computer and your information safe. OS X Mountain Lion delivers even better sandboxing protection in Safari. And it adds sandboxing to new apps like Notes, Reminders, and Game Center, as well as existing apps such as Mail and FaceTime.

The new version now also includes support for the Retina display on the popular MacBook Pro, providing ultra clear graphics and sharp text, and an updated toolbar for easier use of common activities.

This upgrade is free for all users who already own a license of eWallet version 7 for the Mac. If you purchased a copy from Apple using their Mac App Store, then you’ll be able to use the Update feature in that store to get the new version. Get all the info about eWallet here on our site.

Today we released eWallet® for Windows PC version 7.4.4. The release included several miscellaneous fixes including:

  • Improved support for multiple monitors, especially when the configuration changes (e.g., you have a laptop and sometimes use an external monitor)
  • Improved wireless synchronizing with the Android version of eWallet when you have multiple wallets and are using Bonjour
  • Several improvements to AutoPass where we can automatically fill in the username and password on even more sites now

You can download the latest Windows PC version from our site.

A new Mac version is in the pipeline too; we’re just waiting for approval from Apple to release it in the Mac App Store.

Thanks as always for your feedback and keep it coming!

The Missing Windows 8 Instructional Video

Scott Hanselman has put together a new video you might find useful if you’re new to Windows 8. It’s about 25 minutes but moves along pretty quickly — he also does a nice job of highlighting the differences between Windows 8 and Windows 7. If you’re looking for a condensed version, I’ve also included a link to an earlier video that’s about 3 minutes long.

And here’s a link to the short one, “How to use Windows 8 in 3 minutes“.

eWallet for Windows 8/RT update

Windows logo

A new version of eWallet® for Windows 8/RT should be hitting the Windows Store today. This new version adds several new features including pinning cards to a category (shortcuts) or even the Windows start screen, hiding passwords by default (there’s now a reveal button), supporting Skype from a phone number in a card, and several other enhancements.

Probably the most visible feature in this release is pinning cards. This is really handy if you’d like one of your cards to show up in more than one category in eWallet. The pinned card acts like a shortcut to the actual card and makes your information available in more than one place without having to duplicate it. If you have a card you use a lot, you also have the option of pinning it right to the Windows start screen; when you start eWallet with that pinned tile, you’ll go right to your favorite card (after entering your password of course).

eWallet for Windows 8 / Windows RT

eWallet for Windows 8 and Windows RT is available exclusively in the Windows Store. Check it out if you get a chance, and as always, keep the feedback coming!

eWallet for Windows RT

Windows logo

eWallet® is now available for Windows RT! What is Windows RT, you might ask? Windows RT is essentially Microsoft’s version of Windows 8 that runs on the ARM chipset. Microsoft’s first tablet, the Surface, is available initially as a Windows RT device.

eWallet for Windows 8 has been out since, well…, Windows 8 but until this week we didn’t have support for RT. The two platforms are combined into a single product and are available exclusively in the Windows Store.

We’ve added some other features recently too like a trial version so you can check out eWallet before buying it, and we’ve added some additional security options. Check it out if you get a chance, and as always, keep the feedback coming!

eWallet 7.4 for iOS in App Store

eWallet logoeWallet® 7.4 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now in the App Store! This version includes several user-requested features. You can now set the font size bigger in Flex View (back side of the cards) on iPhone for easier reading. On iPhone you can now swipe horizontally to move between cards for more direct browsing. (I prefer search myself to quickly get me to a card, but if you like browsing through your cards, I think you’ll really like this feature.) You can now copy/paste entire cards – very handy for entering information in different cards that is mostly similar. We also made search more responsive, especially for large wallets.

Smart Copy (remove spaces and hyphens from credit cards numbers) is a really handy feature when you’re pasting a credit card number in web site from your wallet. And on the iPhone, if you have more than 32 cards in a category, you’ll now see an index/fast scroll area automatically show up in the list of cards. Finally, we almost always take you to the password screen for your wallet now on iPhone when locking so you don’t have to pick your wallet file every time, and we added higher resolution card icons to the product as well.

As always, please keep the great feedback coming!

eWallet 7.4 for Android now available

eWallet logoNot too long after releasing eWallet® 7.3 for Android, we’re following it up with v7.4. The new 7.4 has several new features including a built-in password generator for creating great passwords, the ability to change the Bonjour/WiFi name used by eWallet on your device, and Smart Copy for credit card numbers.

Changing the Bonjour/WiFi name is handy, especially if you have more than one device of the same type in your household. Now your Bonjour/WiFi name can be “Sue’s Phone” instead of HTCEVOV4G. Smart Copy allows you to copy/paste credit card numbers and spaces and hyphens are automatically removed; they make the numbers more human readable but most websites don’t allow them.

We also now almost always take you to the password screen of last wallet you had opened rather than making you pick it from a list. We also fixed several other things that were minor, but make the product better. Thank you for all the great feedback and please keep it coming.

You can find eWallet in both Google Play (aka the Android Market) as well as on the Amazon appstore.
