eWallet 8.3 Update featuring new wallet format

eWallet

eWallet® 8.3 with a new improved wallet format is now available on Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), Mac, and Windows PC (desktop).

New wallet format? Well that doesn’t sound very exciting…” If you’re thinking that we wouldn’t blame you bit! But it turns out the format is really important as part of  the behind-the-scenes storage, organizing, and protecting of your personal and business information.

So what changed? The new wallet format has improved security, better support for international characters in category names, and we’ve bumped up some of the limits so you can now have larger wallets and more content, such as images and other attachments in your wallets. eWallet will upgrade to the new format automatically when you open your wallet, so there’s nothing special you need to do on your end. Since the wallet format has changed, it’s best if you’re running the new version everywhere, so you’ll want to make sure you upgrade all your devices, PCs, and Macs to take advantage of the changes and for the best sync experience.

We did several other things in each of the releases as well. As just a few examples, the Mac version now lets you initiate a call from Skype or a connected iPhone and has support for IPv6 networks, the PC and Android versions have additional information on the opened wallet, the iOS version has a faster live search, and all the platforms have fixes and enhancements for issues that might not have affected everyone, but we wanted to get them cleaned up.

We get such great feedback from our users — please keep it coming and contact us any time you like.

eWallet

Just a quick note to let you know that the eWallet® 8.2.1 update for Windows PC (desktop) is now available.

We heard back from some of you after the recent 8.2 release about a couple of issues that although perhaps minor, we wanted to get fixed up right away. This included fixing the menu case on the new Office 2016 ribbon style as well as fixing a couple of window related issues. Our installer was updated at the same time and is now digitally signed (as is eWallet itself) using Microsoft’s new Authenticode standards. The complete list of changes is:

  • Office 2016 ribbon style corrected to use mixed case for menus
  • Authenticode digital signatures updated to Microsoft’s new SHA-256 standards
  • Updated SyncPro sync engine to fix sync via SFTP issue
  • Updated to internationalized installer
  • Installer now sets DPI property for eWallet on Windows 7
  • Fixed issue where maximized window could not be moved

If you ever run into an issue, or want to suggest a new feature, please contact us.

eWallet 8.2 for Windows PC (desktop) now available

eWallet

By now most of you have probably already received automatic notification within eWallet® for the new 8.2 version for your Windows PC. This version includes the following improvements:

  • Several user interface updates for Windows 10
  • Change to better support high DPI screens on Windows 10
  • Option to provide bigger click/touch area for list of cards and categories
  • Shortcut button for editing notes
  • Office 2016 ribbon style
  • Improved Updater
  • Updated installer
  • Updated Users Guide
  • Several other miscellaneous fixes and enhancements

Our main focus with the 8.2 update was to improve support for Windows 10, which many of our customers have upgraded to. If you use a high DPI (resolution) screen with your Windows 10 PC, then you should see a big improvement with this version of eWallet over the previous versions, as Windows 10 itself has changed the way it deals with high density screens.

We also implemented some smaller but very popular requests, including making the name easier to click or touch on in the list of cards and categories as well as adding a shortcut for editing the Notes field of a card. eWallet can also now automatically store a card with your eWallet registration information in your wallet for easy lookup the next time you need it.

Many of our users have both PCs and Macs, and if that’s true for you as well you might be interested to know that eWallet 8 for Mac now has the full SyncPro® sync engine with cloud sync — which means you can now sync between your PC and Mac (not to mention your iOS and Android devices) using the cloud as well.

eWallet 8.2 for Windows PC (desktop) runs on Windows 10 PCs and tablets as a desktop app, Windows 8 and 8.1 in Desktop mode, and all versions of Windows 7. This update is free for all users who already own a license of eWallet for Windows PC (desktop), version 7 or higher; you can download or upgrade to the latest Windows PC version from our site (you do not need new registration codes).

eWallet Gets Cloud Sync in Android version

e-wallet

We’re very pleased to announce that our SyncPro® engine including cloud sync is now included with eWallet® 8 for Android.

The Windows PC (desktop) and iOS versions got the cloud sync upgrade last summer and now the Android version has it too. With version 8 of eWallet for Android you now have an additional way to sync and backup that makes use of cloud services, and doesn’t require a direct connection between devices. With cloud syncing you consider the wallet in the cloud to be the master, and then you can sync multiple devices (desktops, laptops, Android phones and tablets, and iOS devices) to that master wallet.

We still offer the direct WiFi sync method as well if you don’t want to (or can’t) store your wallet in the cloud, but we no longer offer the old USB sync, as many Android devices don’t support USB Mass Storage mode anyway.

In addition to cloud sync, we also completely updated the user interface using Google’s Material Design concepts. We also added new high resolution card icons for a new look, and one that fits in better with the new interface. The wallet file format is now the same as on other platforms, so wallets are essentially interchangeable across devices (there’s even a new feature that lets you email a backup copy of your wallet to yourself).

Please note that because of the wallet file change, if you want to continue to use WiFi sync between your PC and Android, you’ll need to upgrade your PC version of eWallet to 8.1.

A special thank you to our Android beta testing team who have been testing and giving us great feedback. If you’re interested in participating in a future beta, or have any questions or comments about the release, please contact us!

eWallet 8.0 for Android runs on Android OS 4.0.3 to 5.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.

eWallet 8.1 for Windows PC runs on all versions of Windows 7, and runs on Windows 8 and 8.1 in Desktop mode. This update is free for all users who already own a license of eWallet for Windows PC (desktop), version 7 or 8; 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.

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.

eWallet Gets Cloud Sync in iOS and Windows versions

e-wallet

We’re very proud to announce that eWallet’s SyncPro® engine now includes support for syncing to the cloud. What does this mean? With version 8 of eWallet for iOS and eWallet for Windows PC (desktop) you now have an additional way to sync and backup that makes use of cloud services, and doesn’t require a direct connection between devices. With cloud syncing you consider the wallet in the cloud to be the master, and then you can sync multiple devices (desktops, laptops, iPhones, iPads, iPod touches) to that master wallet.

Does this mean you now have to use cloud sync? No, not at all. Cloud syncing is an additional feature — we still offer the direct sync methods as well if you don’t want to store your wallet in the cloud. Ok, fine, but what about the Mac and Android versions? We plan to add cloud sync services to those platforms as well, and although we can’t say when they will be ready, we are already working on them.

A lot of other work went into these releases as well. The iOS version got improved iOS 7 support for both iPhones and iPads, and the existing iCloud support was upgraded to use our SyncPro engine for card level syncing. The iOS version now gives you the choice of using iCloud or Dropbox for syncing and backup. The PC version has a new Sync Manager to keep all sync related activities, including setting up a new sync location and changing sync settings, in one easy to access place within eWallet. We also added a new Security Manager so all security settings are available from one place. The UI was also updated in several places to make tasks easier to get to, and information easier to read.
