SplashData, developer of virtual wallet applications for Palm OS handhelds, has announced SplashID, a personal identification organizer that lets users securely maintain all of their personal identification information on a Palm OS handheld, according to John Chaffee, company president.
SplashID safely and securely stores all kinds of personal identification information including user names, passwords, credit cards, calling cards, bank accounts, PINs, medical insurance information, and more, he said. Information is stored in a secure, encrypted format and is quickly accessible using SplashID on a Palm OS handheld or Mac or Windows desktop.
SplashID Desktop, the desktop software that synchronizes with the handheld, is available now for Windows 95, 98, NT4, 2000 and ME. A Mac version will ship in late August that supports Mac OS 8.6, OS 9 and Mac OS X.
“We envision a future when handhelds will replace conventional wallets for conducting transactions, maintaining personal ID information and even holding wallet-sized photos of friends and family,” said Chaffee in a statement. “The release of SplashID brings us one step closer to realizing that vision. We now have a comprehensive suite of virtual wallet applications for Palm handhelds, including SplashID for organizing personal IDs, SplashMoney for managing your checking and credit card expenses, and SplashPhoto for viewing wallet-sized photos of friends and family.”
SplashID is available at an introductory price of US$9.95 (it will normally cost you $19.95) direct from
SplashData. A free 30-day trial version is also available for download.
SplashID supports all handhelds running Palm OS 3.0 or later, including the Palm III, IIIe, IIIxe, IIIc, V, Vx, VII, VIIx, m100, m105, m500 and m505; the Handspring Visor, Deluxe, Platinum, Prism and Edge; and Sony Clie.
