Windows logo

The new 7.4.1 version of eWallet® for Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 is now in the Windows Store. This minor version fixes a problem a couple of people reported where the search box would incorrectly take the focus away from the web page when using AutoPass in some cases.

eWallet 7.5 for Android now available

eWallet logoFollowing up the recent releases of eWallet® on iOS, Mac, and Windows we’re happy to announce that the new 7.5 version is now available on Android. This version is a major update and includes a ton of user requested features, some visible, and some “underneath the hood.”

The biggest visible changes are to the user interface. We added Card View for an alternate view of your data (flex view is still available) and also added a completely new interface specifically for tablets. You’ll see we’ve put a lot of the common functions on new Action Bars to make it easy to access and change your important information.

The Android version now supports picture cards too, as well as background images on non-picture cards. The new tablet interface includes both card view and flex view so you can decide which way you prefer to see your information.

Some of our users take advantage of using multiple wallet files, and we’ve improved synchronization for multiple files at once, even if you’re not using Bonjour. We also found a more reliable way to get the identifier of the device (the IP address). 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.

eWallet for Android runs on Android OS 2.3 to 4.x including both phones and tablets. This upgrade is free for all users who already own a license of eWallet version 7 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. Get all the info about eWallet here on our site.

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

Update (September 13, 2013): A couple of users reported issues with images in 7.5 that we didn’t catch in testing; the 7.5.1 release is now available and resolves those issues.

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

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.

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!
