Default eWallet Go!

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://redirect.zune.net/redirect?type=phoneApp&id=19f3ed58-7814-e011-9264-00237de2db9e&source=VSGallery' target='_blank'>http://redirect.zune.net/redirect?t...ource=VSGallery</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1308243949.usr14226.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>We've featured Ilium Software's eWallet before (as <a href="http://www.wpcentral.com/ewallet-go-app-spotlight" target="_blank">WPCentral is doing now</a>) - I've used it for years, since version 4.x on the now rapidly disappearing Windows Mobile platform, as well as the Windows version on my computer. It's an indispensable tool and an occasional life saver. I can't imagine using any smartphone platform without an app like this, and eWallet Go! is available for every major platform including Windows Phone 7. If you've never tried it before, do yourself a favour and&nbsp;get it - <a href="http://www.iliumsoft.com/ewalletgo?wp7" target="_blank">at $4.99 </a>I consider it a bargain.</p>

Still not there yet I think. Given the very different way WP7 interacts with desktops, I think the only way to do that is via the cloud, which eWallet Go! does.

Actually, no, it doesn't 'sync' with the cloud. It provides the ability for any client to 'backup' to a cloud storage space, (Dropbox or Google Docs) or 'restore' from that space. That means on whatever platform you make a change you need to explicitly back it up, and then explicitly restore all your other copies. Far cry from the 'sync' capability of eWallet. It also doesn't support the autopass on Windows, where it will populate a username and password when openning a web site from the program as eWallet does.

I wish they had just kept eWallet and provided a capability to sync its file to cloud storage location (think it already can, I can sync to a net storage device, but the file format is different) and then provide a WP7 program that could import that. I wouldn't have lost tons of eWallet capability to migrate to eWalletGo!

As it is I am still using eWallet on my WM, PC(s), iPhone and iPad, and just using the 'migrate' tool to update (rewrite) the eWalletGo! backup file on Dropbox, and restoring to WP7.

Don't get me wrong, loved iLium and eWallet for a long time. Since Pocket PCs. This broke the cross platform integration that I had come to enjoy. Correspondence with the tech help would give no indication that the 'sync' or the autopass was going to get fixed in the eWalletGo! product. It is actually a good looking and useful product. It just is not, by any means, eWallet for WP7, for eWallet fans.
