SplashID – Popular Password Manager Coming to iPhone Soon

SplashData are being very aggressive in their development of SplashID and SplashShopper for iPhone. Even in advance of the SDK coming out, they’re going to have web-based services available optimized for Safari and the iPhone screen – and they’ll jump on the SDK when it comes out and create native versions as well.

A good, secure password manager, or digital wallet, application is one of the biggest wish list items in terms of iPhone applications we’d love to see.tree-view A password manager app for iPhone delivered by an established company with a solid track record in this area would really be a must-have for many of us .

Well … it seems like that is exactly what will be on offer quite soon from SplashData – as they are planning to bring their popular and award-winning SplashID program to the iPhone.

SplashID has been a big hit with users on just about all mobile platforms for years – with versions available for Palm OS, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Blackberry.

Read on for more detail and some very encouraging words from the CEO at SplashData …

Here’s what Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData, has to say about bringing a top class password manager application to the iPhone:

I want to make it clear that we’re going to be providing multiple versions of SplashID, even for new devices like the iPhone. We’re going to have a secure web-based version of SplashID for those who want access to their data anytime, anywhere, and we’re also going to continue building native applications (including using the iPhone SDK as soon as it’s available) for those who want to keep their data locally on their devices.

For those who want the convenience of access to their data from any PC or phone, SplashID Online will feature industry leading security safeguards.

If you’re banking online or making credit card purchases over the web, you’ll certainly be comfortable with SplashID Online. SplashID Online will have a very similar feature set to the existing versions of SplashID.

We have a waiting list of thousands of people for an iPhone version of SplashID, so we want to make sure we deliver solutions for them as soon as we can that meet our customers’ expectations.

This should come as very good news to lots of iPhone users, and especially to those who have relied on SplashID for years to keep their passwords and critical data safe.

It will be very interesting to see how the online version of their program will work.  The comparison to online banking makes me wonder whether we’ll see multi-factor authentication (hope so) for SplashID online.

It’s great to see that there will be a full native, local version of the app – as many will be loathe to store their confidential information online, no matter what the safeguards and security standards are.

And it’s nice to see that SplashShopper (a shopping list and general list-making program) will be ported to iPhone, and to see a major publisher sounding very confident about working with the upcoming iPhone SDK.

OK – so now all we need to hear from SplashData is WHEN – when will the web app make an appearance?

I know we’ll be keeping an eye out for it for sure …
