Microsoft has released major upgrade for Windows Phone 7 , code named “Mango” (7.5). The 7.5 release has a ton of new features; you can read more about them on the “What’s New” page. We wanted to build a new version of eWallet GO!® that that would take advantage of some of these new features and this week we released a new version (1.7) to the Marketplace. The major changes to the new version include:
Search — you can now quickly search through all your cards for the information you are looking for
Tiles — now you can pin your favorite cards to the start menu so eWallet GO! opens directly to those cards
Fast application switching — allows users to switch quickly between eWallet GO! and other running applications
Trial version — Microsoft has made it pretty darn easy to add a trial version in Marketplace so we threw that in too!
This upgrade is free for all users who already purchased a license for eWallet GO! in Marketplace (the upgrade requires Windows Phone 7.5). If you don’t already have the release, you can get it using the link below, or simply search for eWallet GO! on your Windows Phone 7 device.
Today we released eWallet® for Windows PC version 7.3 with a raft of features requested by our users. You are not shy about contacting us with feature requests and new ideas for eWallet, and we’re very grateful for that!
The new features include:
Live search: search is always available now, so finding your cards is very fast
Improved Flex View: this view has been updated with a cleaner, easier to read look
Skype: now if you have Skype installed, you can click on a phone number/Skype ID in eWallet to make the call
Printing: choose to print a selection (card or category), or print your entire wallet
Recently Used List: by popular request, you can now remove a wallet name from eWallet’s “Recently Used Wallets” list
CSV files are now an import option
Several UI improvements including Ribbon bar changes and a gloss effect on cards
Many miscellaneous enhancements and bug fixes
This upgrade is free for all users who already own a license of eWallet version 7 for the Windows PC. Get all the info about eWallet here on our site.
We’re happy to announce that by popular demand, we’ve developed and released a full version of eWallet® for the Android platform. In April 2010 we released the eWallet Viewer for Android which let people read, but not change, their eWallet data directly on their Android phone. You’ve made it clear you want to edit as well without using a PC so as of today, we’re replacing the Viewer with this new editable version.
Some of the features (in addition to editing), include:
Secure storage for passwords, usernames, PINs
Strong 256-bit AES encryption
Secure storage for bank and credit card info
Time-out locks to keep your info safe
Live URLs that launch the websites you know, without the dangers of phishing emails or typing errors taking you elsewhere
We hoped to make eWallet on Android completely free for existing Viewer users but apparently the Android Market doesn’t allow for a free app to later become a paid app. So, we decided to do the next best thing: for a limited time, the eWallet for Android will be available for 99 cents (in the U.S.).
A big thank you for all your support over these last fourteen years – and keep the feedback coming, we’re always happy to hear from you.
Update: January 3, 2012, the special pricing is now over; Android pricing is now similar to prices on our other mobile platforms.
We’re very excited to announce the addition of automatic synching for eWallet GO!™ on Windows PC and iOS. With this update, eWallet GO! can automatically save an encrypted backup of your info to either Google Docs or Dropbox whenever you make a change! And if you set up eWallet GO! on another device to synchronize with the same service, eWallet GO! will automatically synchronize the information between the devices. No more manual backup and restore!
This feature is only available on Windows PC and iOS at this time, but we hope to add it to eWallet GO! on Mac, Android, and Windows Phone in the future.
As if that weren’t enough, we also added full Landscape support to eWallet GO! on iOS.
To celebrate this release, we’re offering a Back-to-School Special! For a limited time, you can get eWallet GO! for your mobile device (iOS, Android, or Windows Phone) for just 99 cents! But wait…there’s more! You can also get eWallet GO! on your Windows PC or Mac for free!
We just released eWallet® 7.2 for Mac! This update to our popular secure information management software adds a number of great new features to the Mac version. The big news is the addition of AutoPass! AutoPass automatically sends the username and password from your wallet to the web page when you visit the site from a link within eWallet.
We also added the much requested ability to tab through fields in the edit drawer and a new-and-improved FlexView design. Not to mention a host of minor updates and fixes.
We hope you like this update to eWallet! If you’re new to eWallet, you can purchase it through iTunes Mac App Store for just $9.99.
If you already own eWallet and purchased through the Mac App Store, just redownload the app from the App Store and you’ll get the latest version.
If you already own eWallet and you purchased through us, you can learn how to get the latest version here.
You can now convert SplashID data to eWallet GO!™ using the eWallet GO! Conversion Utility. This has been the week for conversion utility requests, and this is another one we had a lot of people asking about. (We just updated the Conversion Utility to support LastPass conversion earlier this week).
With this update, the Conversion Utility now lets you take a SplashID export file and convert it for use in eWallet GO! Just export your data from SplashID, fire up the Conversion Utility, and follow the instructions. It’s extremely easy!
Exciting news today! Gear Diary is hosting a ListPro list-making contest. All you need to do is make an incredible list, send it to the folks over at Gear Diary, and you have a chance to win an iPod touch! Winning lists are also posted to the List Exchange, our database of user-created ListPro lists.
We just released ListPro for iPhone last week. Not only has the response from customers been incredible, but this morning the New York Times mentioned ListPro for iPhone and Windows PC in an article from their Personal Tech section. The article said:
ListPro, a desktop software application that help users manage lists of all kinds, is now available as a free iPhone app. With it, you may create and manage lists, or choose from existing templates. For $20, you can download the desktop version (for Windows only) and sync your lists.
From a business perspective, even a quick mention like this is fantastic (Thanks, Bob Tedeschi!) From a personal perspective, however, seeing something you worked so hard to create get a mention in the New York Times is just incredibly cool!
You can read the entire article, including some great advice about managing business cards using your mobile device, at the New York Times website.
We just released an update to eWallet that improves support for customers using BlackBerry OS 6.0 devices and for customers who are using Desktop Manager 6.0. If you’ve run into problems using eWallet 7 with either of these RIM updates, the newly released versions should clear things up for you.
If you install the update, please install the updates for both Windows PC and BlackBerry.
Just download the latest versions from our site. Typically, eWallet will pick up your registration codes from previous installations, but if for any reason it doesn’t, the eWallet 7 codes you received with your purchase will unlock the software. If you no longer have your codes, you can request them here.
As many of you scurvy dogs may know, I’m a huge fan of Talk Like a Pirate Day. If ever there was a holiday this world desperately needed, it was this one. Officially, Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th, but in preparation for the holiday and to celebrate the release of ListPro for iPhone, I’ve posted two pirate-themed lists on the List Exchange.
The first is the official ListPro Talk Like a Pirate Day list! With the blessings of the good folks in charge of Talk Like a Pirate Day, I’ve created a set of lists that include the origins of Talk Like a Pirate Day, a Pirate Dictionary, and “His and Hers” Pirate Pick-Up Lines! I can’t thank the folks over at Talk Like a Pirate Day enough for their support on this. Make sure to visit the official site to learn more about this awesome holiday!
The second is another Pirate Dictionary, this one compliments of the folks at the publishing company, Tide-Mark Press. It’s a great dictionary of pirate words and terms! Again, we really appreciate their support and encourage everyone to check out their site!
