Software yesterday announced the release of eWallet 6.0, the latest version of
their award-winning password manager program. eWallet is available for Windows
Mobile Pocket PCs and Smartphones, Palm OS handhelds, Windows PCs, U3 Smart
Drives and UMPCs.
With this release, Ilium Software is also unveiling the eWallet Web Companion.
This innovative web-based application allows eWallet users to view their
information on the iPhone, iPod touch, Blackberry devices, Symbian phones, or
any other device with a web browser and an internet connection.
Current owners and new users alike will find many great new features in
eWallet 6.0. The encryption method has been updated to a stronger,
government-level 256-bit AES FIPS algorithm, offering better security for
important information. Users can also insert and encrypt files into their
wallets, making it safe and easy to take data with them to access whenever they
need it. And now users can even tell the program to automatically save a backup
of their file any time they close or lock it, ensuring that no one will have to
be without the info they need. eWallet 6.0 also adds SFTP synchronization,
allowing users to securely synchronize their information to remote locations.
Aside from offering top-level security, eWallet 6.0 gives users many new ways
to personalize their wallets to fit their style. Users will find two built-in
card background graphics included in the program, as well as 10 more free
background graphics available for download from Ilium Software's website. For
users who just like to use colors for their cards instead of images, eWallet 6.0
now blends any background color into a gradient on the card, bringing an updated
look and feel to the program. The website also offers another free download to
customize cards and categories, in the form of a brand-new Icon Pack with over
200 icons inside.
In addition to unique designs for every card, users will now be given a
choice on how they would like to view their data. eWallet 6.0 introduces Flex
View, which allows users to read their card data in an easy-to-browse list. Of
course, eWallet's well-known card-style view is still available, displaying
information as if it were on a real card.
Among eWallet's other new features are a built-in Import Wizard on the
desktop to help users switch easily from other password programs, and greatly
improved 1-handed navigation, making it simpler to create, edit and use cards on
mobile devices. Windows Mobile Smartphone users will also find that eWallet 6.0
now includes all the same features on their devices as on the Windows Mobile
Pocket PC platform, offering them the same experience with the program if they
work on multiple devices.
In conjunction with the release of eWallet 6.0, Ilium Software is also
announcing a new partnership with WebIS (Web Information Solutions). The two
companies are very pleased to announce that eWallet 6.0 will combine the best
features of both FlexWallet and eWallet and that older version licenses for both
titles will be upgradeable to eWallet 6.0. Complete data compatibility across
platforms will let current FlexWallet and eWallet users have compatible wallets
across Windows Mobile, Palm, U3, and Windows desktop platforms, with a
Blackberry version, based on FlexWallet for BlackBerry, to be released for
Blackberry devices in the first half of 2008.
"We're thrilled that WebIS chose to work with us on this," said Marc Tassin,
Senior Product Manager at Ilium Software. "The chance to work with WebIS to
bring together two of the top-selling secure information management applications
on the market is an amazing opportunity. We're going to do everything we can to
make this a great experience for FlexWallet users."
The single stand-alone version for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs, Smartphones or
PC is now available from Ilium Software for US$ 19.95. The combined PC/Windows
Mobile Pocket PC or Smartphone version costs US$ 29.95.
