We’re very excited to announce that our long awaited version of eWallet for Mac is now available! With eWallet for Mac you get all the security and ease-of-use you’ve come to expect from eWallet, in an interface specially designed for Mac OS. eWallet for Mac offers the same simple synchronization system offered on Windows, including the option to sync with Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch), other computers on your network, or removable storage devices.
If you already own the full eWallet 7 package (which includes support for Windows PC, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry) it’s free to add eWallet for Mac. Just download the latest version here and register using the same registration codes you received for Windows PC (if you’ve misplaced your registration codes, you can request new ones).
If you never added eWallet for these other platforms, you can get it for just $19.95. One purchase lets you use eWallet on Mac, Windows PC, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry. You can also use our free eWallet Viewer for Android to sync with eWallet for Windows.
eWallet for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch) is still a separate purchase available through the iTunes App Store, but it is fully compatible with eWallet for Mac. Using Wi-Fi you can quickly synchronize data between your Mac and your iOS device.
We’re already working on updates for eWallet on Mac, so if you have a favorite feature you’d like to see added, or ideas on how we can make eWallet for Mac even better, please let us know!
We just released an update to the Android eWallet Viewer. This version improves the Viewer’s new Search functionality, and fixes a problem that some people experienced with eWallet Viewer’s auto-lock functionality after we added Search.
Although not many folks ran into the issue, we think that you can never have too much security, so please be sure to update to this version.
You can get the latest version by searching for “eWallet Viewer” on the Android Market. You’ll need a phone with Android OS 1.6 or greater for the Viewer to work.
Don’t have eWallet Viewer yet? Find out more on our site – you will need eWallet 7.1 for Windows to sync your wallets to your phone for viewing.
And as always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Well, our anniversary contest is all wrapped up now. I spent some time this morning toiling over the entries to pick the winners – there were quite a few repeat songs, and I wanted to make sure to pick the first commenter in each case!
So who won, you ask? Hit the jump to find out….
Update: eWallet for iPad is available now in the iTunes App Store.
It’s a universal binary, so anyone who’s bought or received as a promo eWallet for iPhone should get this version with no charge.
If you have questions about it, we’ll be back in the office Monday and be happy to answer them all.
We had an exciting time last week, when we were asked to take part in not one, but two, interviews on some popular mobile websites. In case you missed them, I just wanted to take a minute to quickly point out where you can find them online:
First, Ellen answered some questions in a great five-part interview over at MediaBistro. You can catch up on all five days worth of posts from this page (this is the final part, and there are links at the top of the post to all the previous days).
Then, Marc was featured in Just Another Mobile Monday’s Developer Interview Series. You can find his question-and-answer session right here.
Both interviews are definitely worth a read – you might even find some interesting info about what we’ve been working on and what’s coming up!
Thanks again to both MediaBistro and Just Another Mobile Monday!
A few people have asked me why we haven’t been posting as much on the blog, or on Twitter, lately. We’ve just been busy, and trying to focus more on what we’re supposed to be doing: developing, marketing, product managing and supporting our products. There’s a lot going on in the industry we could comment on, but the reality is that there’s a lot of good comments on all of it already. We don’t have much to add, and we really are trying to focus.
So – we’re fine, thanks for asking. We’ll be posting as we have news, announcements, or some thoughts we think are just too profound to keep to ourselves, but otherwise we’re going to try to be a little more productive and less distracted. It’s a new approach, at least for me, but you never, know, it just might work.
And, yes, we are working on both eWallet for Mac and ListPro for iPhone/iPad, and will post when we have something ready for release. I can’t give a date or an estimate – all I can say is that they’re in process, and I am sorry the wait has been so long.
I was talking with someone I used to work with yesterday, and he asked me how our users hear about us.
It was a good question, and one that a good marketing person should be able to answer. Too bad I’m not a good marketing person.
So rather than trying to figure it out from not enough information, I’m just going to ask – if you’re reading this, how did you first hear of us? An ad? A review? A friend? Browsing an app store? Something else?
Please help us out and let us know. Leave a comment here – you don’t have to create an account or send us any info – or just tweet me an answer. As an incentive, we’ll give away some Amazon and iTunes gift cards to a random selection of people who respond.
And, of course, our sincere thanks.
No, it’s not ours.
And while I can see a need for password recovery, I admit I’m having a hard time seeing the line between recovering a password of your own and hacking someone else’s.
But, that’s actually not my point. My point is that apps like this exist. Continue reading
I found the most convincing proof I’ve seen that Google is making a Tablet. I found it while hunting down screenshots and pictures of the Apple iPad using Google Image Search. No matter how hard I tried I kept coming up with everything but pictures of the iPad.
So I did something I very seldom try – I used Bing…and suddenly I have tons of pics!
Now I love a lot of things about Microsoft, but Bing isn’t one of them. In all honesty, it very seldom returns the thing I’m actually looking for. And trust me – I’ve used Bing a LOT. I was in the beta program and used it enough to get a free copy of Zoo Tycoon.
I gotta say, it really looks like Google is “cooking the books” on this one. Missing the mark on a search this badly just doesn’t fit. Even if you yank the image size criteria I entered, you still get a bunch of images that very clearly are not an actual iPad.
I’m sure folks will come up with all sorts of reasons that it makes perfect sense that Google has completely failed to return the search results I expected, but they’ve never missed this badly before – it just doesn’t make sense!
What do you think?
Text = Apple iPad
Image Size = Large
A lot of people are writing their opinions on the effect the iPad will have on Amazon’s Kindle sales, and their ideas of Amazon should be doing in light of last week’s Apple announcement. Here’s mine:
Turn their eBook collection into an online, cloud-based lending library.
What I mean by this is to offer a service like the one LaLa now has, where I can buy songs for 1/10 of what I’d pay for the downloadable mp3, but I can’t download the songs. I can, however, listen to them any time I want – I “own” the listening rights, but the songs stay online.
