eWallet 8.2 for Android update includes fingerprint support

eWallet for Android logo

We’re very pleased to announce that eWallet® 8.2 for Android OS is now available in the Google Play and Amazon app stores. The new release includes fingerprint support for entering passwords, copy/pasting of cards within and between wallets, and the ability to rename and change the type of your card fields.

eWallet 8.2 for Android lock screen

Some Android devices have had fingerprint scanners for a while now, but until Android OS 6 (Marshmallow), the scanners were supported by the device manufacturers rather than Android itself. We heard from many users (loud and clear!) that they really like the convenience of the fingerprint scanner, and now that Android 6 supports it, so does eWallet. And you can decide on a wallet-by-wallet basis if you want to use the fingerprint scanner to unlock your wallet or not.

 

Many of you also sync with the PC or Mac version of eWallet where it’s very convenient to move cards around between categories. As we all use our mobile devices for more and more in our daily lives though, it’s handy to be able to reorganize a bit by copy/pasting your eWallet cards right on your Android device.

Finally, many of you requested that we allow changing the field names directly in the Android version, for example, changing a label like User Name to Email. You can change the type of the field too, so if you want to have an extra password on your card and make that field hidden, now you can. Oh, and one more thing: the new version should be much better about opening the last wallet you used, so when you start eWallet, you’ll be right at the lock screen rather than your list of wallets.

I know I’ve said this before, but we are truly fortunate to get so much great real-world help with beta testing. We again had an excellent beta team for the 8.2 release and their feedback helped immensely. If you’re interested in participating in a future beta, or have any questions or comments about the release, please contact us!

eWallet 8.2 for Android runs on Android OS 4.0.3 to 6.0 including both phones and tablets. Use of the fingerprint scanner requires Android 6 on compatible devices. This upgrade is free for all users who already own a license of eWallet version 7 or 8 for Android. If you purchased a copy from Google Play or Amazon using their app stores, then you’ll be able to use the Update feature in the respective store to get the new version.

eWallet 8.1 for Android now available

e-wallet

We’re very pleased to announce that eWallet® 8.1 for Android OS is now available in the Google Play and Amazon app stores.

On the heels of the eWallet for iOS update, the new 8.1 update focuses on fully supporting the new permissions system in Android OS 6.0. The 6.0 permission system makes it possible for users to allow or revoke individual permissions when the product is running, rather than the old model of having to accept all the permissions when you installed the product. You know the saying, “with great power comes great responsibility” and the same applies here — you can revoke permissions on an app, but then it may not be able to do everything you would like. For eWallet, the main area of permissions is around being able to save backups and import information into a wallet.

We added several other “behind the scenes” features and fixes including the live search that now includes the title of the card (it was previously searching all the card data but not the title) and some improvements to the way images are handled.

eWallet Gets Cloud Sync in Android version

e-wallet

We’re very pleased to announce that our SyncPro® engine including cloud sync is now included with eWallet® 8 for Android.

The Windows PC (desktop) and iOS versions got the cloud sync upgrade last summer and now the Android version has it too. With version 8 of eWallet for Android you now have an additional way to sync and backup that makes use of cloud services, and doesn’t require a direct connection between devices. With cloud syncing you consider the wallet in the cloud to be the master, and then you can sync multiple devices (desktops, laptops, Android phones and tablets, and iOS devices) to that master wallet.

cloud sync

We still offer the direct WiFi sync method as well if you don’t want to (or can’t) store your wallet in the cloud, but we no longer offer the old USB sync, as many Android devices don’t support USB Mass Storage mode anyway.

In addition to cloud sync, we also completely updated the user interface using Google’s Material Design concepts. We also added new high resolution card icons for a new look, and one that fits in better with the new interface. The wallet file format is now the same as on other platforms, so wallets are essentially interchangeable across devices (there’s even a new feature that lets you email a backup copy of your wallet to yourself).

Please note that because of the wallet file change, if you want to continue to use WiFi sync between your PC and Android, you’ll need to upgrade your PC version of eWallet to 8.1.

eWallet 7.6 for Android now available

eWallet logoThe new 7.6 version of eWallet® for Android is now available. This release includes the often requested AutoPass feature, some UI improvements, and several fixes.

AutoPass is a feature that automatically sends the user name and password from your wallet to the web page when you visit a site from a link within eWallet. The AutoPass feature can be turned on/off globally as well as on a card-by-card basis.

We also made some improvements for when the keyboard shows and hides itself so there’s not so much up and down between fields. Certain devices were reporting the wrong IP address for sync and that has been sorted out in this version. Finally, a few users were running into some crashes and we fixed those too in this release.

Thanks to all of you have have taken the time to write to us with suggestions — we appreciate all the great feedback and please keep it coming.

eWallet for Android 7.5.4 Update

eWallet logoThe new 7.5.4 version of eWallet® for Android is now available. This is a relatively minor release that includes some fixes for images positioning on the card face, as well as fixes for crashes a few people were seeing.

We did add one new feature as well — some of you wrote to us that you did not want eWallet to automatically lock the wallet when your device goes to sleep (the default). The new “Lock on device suspend” security setting can be turned off if you like; this can be handy if you keep your sleep times really low.

Also included (as of 7.5.3) is the ability to switch to the phone interface on your tablet — this can be very useful if you have one of the Android-based tablets with a very small screen.

For those of you about to celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope you have a great one! And of course, thank you for all the great feedback and please keep it coming.

eWallet 7.3 for Android now available

eWallet logoWe’re happy to report that eWallet® 7.3 is now available in Google Play (aka the Android Market). This release includes the ability for wireless synchronization between an Android device and eWallet on a Windows PC using a local WiFi network. The 7.3 release now supports tablet devices (typically running Android OS 3), Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), as well as Android 2.1 – 2.6.

We still include USB sync for devices that have USB Mass Storage but it’s handy not to have to connect to your PC with a wire. Our Android beta group was very helpful in sorting out some issues with Sync Setup; they were really great to work with.

On a separate note, we heard from a few people with large wallets that search was a bit slow, so we sped that up as part of this release too.
