eWallet digital wallet coming to iPhone
Our publisher, Hoyun, has been after me to start using eWallet, usually after I pester her for the password for one of our accounts for the umpteenth time.
eWallet lets you secure your personal information on multiple PCs and mobile devices using Windows Mobile or Palm OS. And waiting in the wings is the long-awaited version for the iPhone and iPod Touch, which is scheduled for release as early as this Friday when the new 3G iPhones first become available in stores. The software is finished and ready to launch, pending final word from Apple. Today's update from Ilium Software:
"We're not trying to be cagey with iPhone info about our apps - there still are a lot of unknowns. We hope we'll have eWallet in the iPhone App store Friday, but we haven't yet seen confirmation of that. We want to send reviewers copies as soon as we can, but we're not quite sure when the mechanisms will be in place. We're not sure if we'll have a way to give existing users a discount on the iPhone purchases, but we do have a plan in place to be sure they're taken care of."
eWallet safely stores and secures your PIN numbers, bank account information, passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information, using government-level (FIPS) 256-bit AES encryption. For me, this means no more using weak passwords just so I'll remember them.
Take a look at the sneak preview on the Ilium Software Blog, and another preview screenshot after the jump.
