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!
Windows PC and Windows Mobile users can download these special Talk Like A Pirate Day lists here (TalkLikeAPirateDay) and here (TideMarkPirateDictionary).
iPhone ListPro users can download the lists by tapping the List Exchange button at the Home View of ListPro on their device.
We just released an updated version of eWallet for Mac today. This update includes a couple of quick fixes that we wanted to get out right away. First, it solves problems some of our Leopard users were running into. Second, it corrects the maximized behavior so that the Properties drawer doesn’t appear off screen.
You can grab the latest version from here and use your unlock codes from the previous release to register the software. Or if you don’t have your unlock codes, you can always request that we send them again using this form.
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.
