The latest news, straight from our vendors.
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.

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.
A special thank you to our beta testing team, we got some wonderful feedback and incorporated much of it in the final versions. If you’re interested in participating in a future beta, or have any questions or comments about the release, please contact us!

More and more people are living their digital lives entirely out of their mobile devices, but the convenience of keeping your data with you may also be keeping all of your eggs in one basket.
Each mobile device is unique and the information you keep on a device is often just as unique as the files and documents you might keep on a computer. So like a computer, you should always take steps to preserve and backup any of the important information you save on your mobile devices.
Backing up everything on iOS devices can be as easy as making a full device backup using iCloud or iTunes on your computer. For Android, connecting your device to the computer can let you pick and choose the important data you’d like to copy as a backup.
No matter what type of device you’re using, it’s very important to make sure you are in control of your system. A reputable anti-virus application can be a good thing to add to your device, but as with any apps you install, your own research and caution is the best defense against malware.
Being in control of your system is even more imperative if you plan on using any kind of memory/file cleaning app for your mobile devices. Because “cleanup” type apps are specifically designed to delete information, they should be used with caution. If possible, set cleaner apps to ignore your most used programs and always double-check the information that the cleaner wants to delete before allowing it to clean. (Remember those backups?)

The new 7.6 version of eWallet® for Android is now available. This release includes the often requested AutoPass feature, some UI improvements, and several fixes.
AutoPass is a feature that automatically sends the user name and password from your wallet to the web page when you visit a site from a link within eWallet. The AutoPass feature can be turned on/off globally as well as on a card-by-card basis.
We also made some improvements for when the keyboard shows and hides itself so there’s not so much up and down between fields. Certain devices were reporting the wrong IP address for sync and that has been sorted out in this version. Finally, a few users were running into some crashes and we fixed those too in this release.
Thanks to all of you have have taken the time to write to us with suggestions — we appreciate all the great feedback and please keep it coming.
