Announces Mac OS Version of SplashID 3.0 for Palm Powered Handhelds
New version of popular personal identification organizer for PDAs extends enhanced security and customization features to Mac users
SEATTLE - - March 31, 2004 - - SplashData, Inc., the leading developer of “virtual wallet” applications for mobile devices, today launches a major upgrade to the Mac OS version of its best-selling personal identification organizer, SplashID‘. SplashID 3.0, which securely maintains personal identification information on a Palm Powered™ handheld and desktop computer, now offers Mac users a host of new features aimed at simplifying the security of data stored on their PDAs and enabling users to customize the program to suit their particular preferences.
SplashID has long been among the most popular PDA applications available, with the Palm OS version currently ranked as the #1 selling Palm OS application at Handango.com. The software safely and securely stores all kinds of personal identification information including user names, passwords, credit card numbers, calling card numbers, bank account data, PINs, medical insurance information, and more. Information is stored in a secure, encrypted format and is quickly accessible on a Palm Powered handheld or desktop computer. SplashID includes both handheld and desktop software (for both Windows and Macintosh) and the data is automatically synchronized between the two.
SplashData’s development team focused its efforts on personalization and simplification with SplashID 3.0. For example, while users have long enjoyed the ability to select from the program’s library of icons to graphically represent each record, SplashID now provides support for custom icons. These icons can be purchased from third-party vendors or created using applications such as Icon Manager, software that enables users to create and edit an endless array of icons for use with SplashID and other popular applications such as DateBk and Agendus. Users can now assign records to categories for filtering purposes, such as “Personal” or ”Business,” and pre-select which columns will be displayed based on the type of records being viewed. In addition, users can create an unlimited number of templates with pre-defined field labels for different information types such as “Credit Card Numbers” and “Web Logins” while customizing field labels on a per-record basis.
Other key new features to SplashID 3.0 include enhanced security. Many people, especially those in data-sensitive industries, are forced by policy to regularly change their passwords. These passwords often require a certain number of letters and numbers and it can be difficult to constantly create memorable pass-codes. SplashID simplifies this process by auto-generating codes that meet the user’s specific criteria. Another new security feature allows users to specify which fields they wish to mask so that contents (such as a password or credit card number) cannot be easily viewed by other individuals while SplashID is being used on a handheld or desktop computer. Further, SplashID will now automatically create an encrypted back-up of the SplashID desktop database, ensuring that records are secure should data loss occur on the handheld or desktop.
