Review: Spb Wallet 2 for S60 devices, free for Windows Mobile switchers

A couple of days ago I posted on the exciting news of Spb Software’s first S60 release, Spb Brain Evolution, and now I am pleased to post on the announcement of their second S60 product, Spb Wallet 2.0. As I mentioned before I have been using Spb Software products on my Windows Mobile devices for years with some of them the first applications I load on my new devices. Spb Wallet 2 is a secure information management solution that is now cross platform with clients on Windows Mobile and Symbian S60.

spbwallet_s601

We have so many passwords, account numbers, PIN codes, and other numbers and phrases we memorize to access sensitive data today. Often people use the same password or PIN across the spectrum to reduce the amount of information that has to be memorized. With a secure information manager like Spb Wallet 2 you can now let your S60 device take care of all that data for you and keep it safe and secure.

Key features

From the press release, here are the features in Spb Wallet 2 for S60 devices:
  • Secure and manageable storage of sensitive information
  • Strong AES 256 encryption
  • User-friendly logon panel helps against key loggers
  • Automatic wallet lockup
  • Automatic clipboard cleanup
  • Special engine to protect from ‘fishing’ attacks
  • Cards look like those in your wallet
  • Cards and templates are fully customizable
  • Templates import, export and sharing
  • 60+ predefined templates, icons and graphics
  • Item level synchronization with support of multiple devices and desktops
  • Smart card fields allow taking action right from the wallet:
  • Open web site
  • Send email
  • Make phone call
  • Send SMS/MMS
  • Copy data to clipboard
  • Password generator
  • Quick search
  • Compatible with S60 5th Edition and touch screen devices

You can also sync your wallets with your Windows desktop and these are some of the new features in the updated desktop client:

  • New synchronization engine, now data can be synchronized with:
  • - Google mail account \ cloud sync
  • – Network share or folder
  • - Sync with Symbian S60 device (PC Suite)
  • Online Templates Gallery with 7,000+ most popular cards integrated into application
  • Improved integration with web browser
  • Data importing: now data can be imported from HandySafe
  • Option to customize font\color of notes below cards
  • New option: show password always
  • Advanced Integration with Internet Explorer and Firefox

Initial setup

After you install the application on your device, you then need to setup a new Wallet file. Spb Wallet prompts you to enter and then confirm a password before setting up the wallet. As you enter in your password a visual strength indicator lets you know if you have a weak or strong password. You can also enter in a password hint at the bottom of the page to help you remember your password. If you forget your password you will be unable to access the wallet so make sure you have a good hint or don’t forget the password. You can use Spb Wallet to remember the password, but if you can’t get in that isn’t worth much to you.

spbwallet_s6022

For additional security, you can setup an automatic lock timeout with the number of invalid logins allowed before your hint appears. You can setup as many wallets as you like and store them on the device or external storage card.

After establishing your password, you then will see a bunch of labeled folders and sample cards. The folders are included to help you setup your own personal wallet and can be edited, deleted, or reorganized how you like them. Within each folder are the cards you use to manage your specific data. The cards are designed to look like a standard credit card with your data on them. You can also switch to a basic list view to view ALL of the data while only the most important data appears in the graphic view. As a guy who shops online quite a bit I plan to put in my credit cards so I don’t have to dig around for my wallet the next time I want to purchase a phone ;)

Creating your cards

There are 60 predefined card styles loaded with the Spb Wallet 2 and now you can actually visit an online template gallery that has 7,000+ card templates. If you still can’t find a card you need, you can fill out a form and a template will be developed for you for FREE. The cool thing is that you can browse for and download these card templates right on your mobile device without having to use a PC.

onlinecards

Spb Wallet is extremely powerful and customizable. You can actually customize the fields use in the templates and the field types, graphic for the card template, fonts, colors, and more.

It is a good idea to use the desktop client to create all of your cards and then sync them to your device to save time. After going through and entering all of the data in your cards you are all set and ready to use your cards.

spbwallet_s605

Using your Wallet data

Spb Wallet 2 card data has a few smart fields that automatically “hyperlink” to allow you to make phone calls, send text/SMS messages, visit a website, and send an email. Selecting one of these smart card fields takes the action identified by data.

spbwallet_s604

As I mentioned earlier, with so many sites requiring user names and passwords it is difficult to have different passwords and remember what they all are. Spb Wallet 2 has an integrated password generator that lets you set the strength, length, and more before having a password created.

If you add a ton of data and cards on your S60 device in Spb Wallet you may then find it difficult to find specific cards you want to use. Luckily Spb includes a Smart Search functionality that lets you search by name, notes, and other fields. Data is searched dynamically as you enter search terms.

Syncing and importing your data

You can use the Windows PC client (included with your purchase) to sync your data to your PC. There currently is no Mac client. Spb Wallet 2 also gives you the capability to sync your desktop PCs with your Gmail account. Your wallet file is saved as an encrypted attachment that you can then use across multiple PCs.

spbwallet_s607

If you already use an electronic wallet application then you can import your data from eWallet, FlexWallet, CodeWallet, SplashID, HandySafe, or a custom CSV file. This is a handy feature for those moving from one mobile operating system to another.

Conclusion

There are plenty of options and features in the desktop client so make sure to try that out if you have a Windows PC too. I have tried HandySafe in the past, but IMHO Spb Wallet surpasses it in so many different ways including real card graphical look, extreme customizability, quick search, password generator, and much more. The desktop client is also a feature that sets it apart from HandySafe.

spbwallet_s6024

You can try out Spb Wallet 2 for 15 days for free. You can also buy the S60 version (comes with desktop client) for US$29.95. I recommend waiting for the official press release coming soon where there may be “promo” deals. As quoted in their press release:

As a limited time offer, users of Spb Wallet 2.x for Windows Mobile get the Symbian version for free, and vice-versa, please contact Spb Software support for details. According to Spb Software upgrades policy, all Spb Wallet 1.x users, who have purchased the product within the last 90 days, are invited to exchange the previous version of software for the newly released one, for free.
I am excited about seeing Spb Wallet 2 on the S60 platform and plan to put all of my data on my S60 devices. It is great to see two products for S60 from Spb Software in one week and I hope there is more to come.

Sorry but I find your video review useless. It is nothing more but a feature walkthrough. I can find all that an more from the bullet point list on this page. I’ve been looking at this page cause the password managers I’ve used so far are all missing out on practicality. I can imagine SPB Wallet would address my problems, but having listened to your review I just don’t know anything more then I already knew reading your page.

Thanks for this Matthew!

Does the password manager work like Lastpass where you just click the hyperlink and you’ll be automatically logged on? Also, does it work with just the Web Browser that comes with Symbian S60, or can the app be configured to work with 3rd party browsers, like Opera Mini? Thanks in advance! :)

Dodot, unfortunately the automatic password/user name fill in only works with the desktop version in Internet Explorer and Firefox. It does not work on the device, which I agree would be a very nice feature to have.

Have to say I am getting a little disappointed in SPB as their update program for their Symbian apps seem a little slow. Ok they have just released the new (useful??) time application back in March, but their old favourites are looking pretty crusty now.

SPB Weather – Last release was 24/12/2009 and there has still not been an official update for Symbian^3. When installed on such a device the following issues are noted. a) GPS location based weather does not work. b) Cannot set schedule update to once per day. c) Homescreen widget has no background option and as such gets lost on busy wallpapers unlike other widgets.

SPB Wallet – Last release was 11/11/2009 and as such there is still no official Symbian^3 support. Whilst the functionality is sort of there, you can tell this was not designed for a full touchscreen phone. Minor bugs / issues includes sort problems on the card list, not being able to amend the location of the card file on the phone, and formatting is corrupted in the notes field when this is synchronised with the PC version of the wallet. In addition to this, requests for new card templates do not get answered or actioned.

Considering the price that SPB charge for their products, when compared to other similar applications it is a shame that they are not supporting these applications to a level that warrants the additional expense…..such a shame.
