Windows 10 Video Tour (Preview)

You may have heard about Microsoft’s announcement regarding the upcoming Windows 10 (they’re apparently skipping version 9). Once again, Scott Hanselman has put together a short video (less than 8 minutes), this time covering the major features of the technical preview. The improved Start Menu and better integration between full screen apps and the desktop look like a very positive step forward.

Today we released eWallet® for Windows PC version 7.6.2, another follow-up to the 7.6 upgrade that went out a few weeks ago. This minor update resolves some screen resolution issues for people who set their display scaling higher than 100% (some laptops now default to 125%).

Today we released eWallet® for Windows PC version 7.6.1, a quick follow-up to the 7.6 upgrade that went out a few days ago.

eWallet for Windows PC 7.6

Today we released eWallet® for Windows PC version 7.6 with several new features, many of them user-requested:

  • Card display updated to simpler, cleaner look
  • Updated password generator and added new “instant password” button
  • Editing screen improved for easier entry and updating of information
  • New interface for adding additional detail fields
  • Note Card and Picture Card display improved
  • Credit card images updated
  • Fix to sync with FTP sites for systems with IE 11
  • Other miscellaneous improvements and fixes

We made several user interface changes with this release, all with the goal of making your information easier to read, enter, and edit. One of the areas that was completely redone was the Password Generator. We really wanted it to be very easy to generate passwords, so you can now easily configure your default password rules, then when you press the little password button to the right of any password field, you’ll instantly get a new password built using those default rules.

Internet Explorer includes a piece of technology used by many applications called “WinINet”. Unfortunately, IE 11 appears to have been shipped with a version of WinINet that included a bug that adversely affected people trying to sync eWallet with FTP sites. eWallet 7.6 works around this bug so if you ran into it, upgrade eWallet and you should be all set.

eWallet for Windows PC runs on all versions of Windows 7, and runs on Windows 8 and 8.1 in Desktop mode. This upgrade is free for all users who already own a license of eWallet for Windows PC (desktop), version 7; you can download or upgrade to the latest Windows PC version from our site (you do not need new registration codes). If you have version 7.5 or later with automatic updates turned on, you’ll get prompted to update to the latest version (you can press “Check for Updates” in the About screen too). Get all the info about eWallet (including access to a 30-day trial version) here on our site.

What’s New In Windows 8.1 Video

Back in January, I wrote about Scott Hanselman’s “The Missing WIndows 8 Instructional Video.” He’s since released three new Windows 8.1 videos, including the What’s New In Windows 8.1, below:

Scott’s videos are always concise and helpful, so check them out if your using or are interesting in Windows 8.1. All three new videos plus the original Windows 8 video are available on his blog.

eWallet for Windows 8/RT 7.4 update

The new 7.4 version of eWallet® for Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 is now in the Windows Store. This updated version adds full support for Windows 8.1, a search box on the main screens, support for resizing the full screen windows, easier adding of custom details to card, and performance improvements. See our last update for improvements made just a few weeks ago.

Before Windows 8.1, we were not allowed to have a search area directly on our main pages — users always had to go to the charms area first to search. One of the big improvements in Windows 8.1 has been to allow search to be more readily available. Now in eWallet, you can just start typing on a screen and we’ll start searching for the card immediately.

We made quite a few “under the cover” changes to support Windows 8.1 and take advantage of its new features and better performance; in fact, this version has changed enough that we now require Windows 8.1 (Windows 8.1 is a free upgrade to Windows 8 from Microsoft).

I also wanted to mention that we’ve heard from a few folks who think this product is an upgrade for our Windows Desktop version — that’s actually not the case, we fully support both and they are both listed in the Microsoft Store. We’ve got trial versions of both as well so you can fully check them out before making a purchase decision.

Thank you for all your feedback and please keep it coming.

eWallet for Windows 8 runs on Windows 8.1 PCs as well as tablets running Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1. This upgrade is free (from Microsoft’s store) for all users who already own a license of eWallet for Windows 8/RT. Get all the info about eWallet here on our site.

Thanks as always for your feedback and keep it coming!

eWallet for Windows Phone 7

With the official Windows Phone 7 announcement going out yesterday, I wanted to let you know that we’re working on a version of eWallet for Microsoft’s new mobile OS! eWallet for Windows Phone 7 is designed to perfectly fit the look and feel of the new OS. It takes the best features of eWallet and adapts them to Window Phone 7’s unique interface.

If you’ve gotten your hands on a Windows Phone 7 device, you know that Microsoft has created a really compelling OS. I know a lot of people had their doubts, but I have to say that Microsoft pulled out all the stops on this. The end results are devices that are really exciting to design software for.

Unfortunately, I can’t offer much more at this stage – you’ll have to wait for the official release for that – but I did include a screenshot below to give you a little hint of what we’re working on!
