When you start using a portable device frequently you often begin to put all kinds of information on it. Documents, text files, music, photos, and more. I find myself also looking for software that makes things easier to do on a portable device. One of the things I wanted to carry on my Blackberry was information that should be secured. Passwords, credit card numbers, and other critical information. In looking around I found SplashID and it seems I found the best product right off the bat. I'd looked at similar programs for Palm and Windows Mobile devices, but I think SplashID out performs all of them. You can use it to store a ton of information on your Blackberry. On top of that the program can even backup and restore your information for you. I put passwords, calling card information, PIN numbers, registration codes for programs on my Blackbery, and more. But unlike many similar products, SplashID isn't just a repository for passwords and other key information. How about the ability to generate secure passwords for you and you can specify the criteria it uses for creating them. You can also synchronize your Blackberry and your desktop computer using the SplashID desktop version. The program has lots of configurable option so you have more say about how it looks and how it works. For example you can use custom icons and customized the labels used in data fields. I even created a record that stores all of my prescription numbers so I can access them from my phone and call them in. Slick. I feel confident keeping information in SplashID because it utilizes really powerful 256-bit Blowfish encryption. The program is very easy-to-use and intuitive. You can't ask for much more than that and it makes carrying sensitive information on your Blackberry device more more secure. So, if you're looking for a product that will allow you to take secure information with you, look no further. This is the tool you need for your Blackberry. I like it so much that it's not only a Pick, but I'm also making it a Dr. File Finder Favorite and those are few and far between. I recommend it.
If you have software you use on your "smartphone" or PDA, come and talk about it with us in the Forums. We look forward to seeing you there.
