    I'm looking for a wallet app for my Droid that also has a desktop version and supports wireless sync via the cloud. Any recommendations?

    What I have found so far that look decent.

    SplashID: Looks good, has a free demo for the Droid, but the desktop version does not have a free demo, so to try synch, you have to pay. They have a good reputation. many years fo providing service for Palm and Windows Mobile.

    Keepass: Free, decent interface, and has both mobile and desktop version. Unfortunatly, the mobile version does not yet support the new database format that supports OTA synchronization, so for now, you need an older version on the desktop (1.6) and you need to remember where you made changes and manually copy the database file in the right direction. I expect they will update to the new database version and support some kind of synchronization.

    eWallet: Not available for Android yet. It is being discussed passionately on the Ilium software blog, but the developer is not yet ready to commit to developing an Android version. eWallet is the best of the best for Palm, WindowsMobile, iPhone, and I think it supports Blackberry as well. It is so good I am thinking about installing the desktop version on an always on server and just using RDP or VNC to remotely connect when I need a password until an Android version is available. (also not free).

    Wallet Apps

    Hmm...I'm running SplashID on my XP desktop and the phone...I paid for the phone version but am running the desktop in "trial"; mode. 30 days is what it's giving me, and I'll go ahead and buy it. I am getting full sync on this trial version as well. I doubt SplashID will sync to a cloud, though...it wants the IP of the syncing machine when you initiate. Also, you can only initiate a sync from the phone side.

    I had eWallet before switching to the Droid and it's a good app as well. It did sync via cable...I don't know about wireless, though. Same issue re: cloud. I found converting the database from eWallet to SplashID wasn't difficult with some Replace commands. The field delimiters in SplashID have to be added to the exported eWallet text file, then it'll work fine. Hope that helps, Davemag

    Yeah, I had that reversed. Trial available for desktop, need to pay for phone (or if there is a trial, I couldn't find it).

    A discussion over at PDAPhonehome.com we have discussed either using www.mesh.com or just gmail to move copy the current keepass database back and forth to stay in sync.

    Guess a new version of SplashID is due out any day now.
    Not liking that keepass sync doesn't work with v2

    SplashID is way over-priced if you ask me. Might just make a word file, and save $30-40 bucks.

    SplashID

    It's not cheap, that's for sure, but then you're getting decent encryption along with the user interface, syncing, etc. For most users a Word file with PGP or similar encryption would work just fine, though I think it's fair to say Word has more vulnerabilities than SplashID does. If Keepass gets synch ability it's a good alternative, although I didn't like the workflow too much.

    Options are good.

    What do you mean by workflow?

    I guess I'll throw in my two bits. I have eWallet on a Windows Mobile (HTC) phone, and PC, would buy it in a second if it was available for the Droid (I did my two bits, put it up on their Blog). eWallet really did the job. However, not having it, I'm still contemplating. I guess I'd also prefer a cloud or google type server synchronization type ap, but PC is fine. Just want someplace where I can get a decent backup.

    Anyway, have looked into a few things:

    SpashID

    The Droid examples on their web site look good, but it also has a lot of bugs to it, judging from the feedback, so I think I'll wait until 4.7 ships.

    Astrid

    This is more a ListPro type function, than secret passwords, so skip. A bit buggy on the Droid, have had to kill it a number of times.

    OI Safe

    Kind of crude, but more or less works. Comes with the Personal/Business separation. Basic fields include:

    * Description
    * Website
    * username
    * password
    * notes

    so it's more a userid/password thing, than anything. I haven't find anything for different type cards, as is in eWallet, nothing for credit cards, etc. Maybe a bit on the crude side

    Password Vault

    Another password manager. Fields include:

    * Title
    * Username
    * password
    * notes (text)

    It does have one nice feature, it auto-closes. It is kind of weak in terms of the number of fields, doing things other than userid/passwords. No cards ala eWallet. Requires password AND userid (!?) to get in, kind of annoying in asking for the latter. I have the phone lock itself, so I don't really need the userid/password, but...

    Wallet

    This would seem like, from the name, the closest thing to eWallet, Right? Well elements are somewhat close, though not as rich. There are 4 categories:

    * Door codes
    * web passwords
    * Credit cards
    * other

    so that's at least closer. But the application doesn't seem to be very Droid friendly, some of the text is really small, very tough to read. I couldn't get the scrolling to work all that well. There's some GPS type info, which might be useful. But basically, not quite ready for Droid.

    KeePassDroid

    OK, I'm going to add another Password manager to the list. Again, not eWallet, by any stretch.

    KeePassDroid

    This appears to have some password database synchronization, but not yet working for Droid/PC, so for now, Droid only. Basically comes up with two userid/password categories:

    • Internet
    • eMail

    You can add further on your own. Has the following fields

    • Title
    • Userid
    • Password
    • Comment

    Tried it out. It gets occasional problems on the Droid, nothing too insurmountable, but focus problems is the main one. Gets it done for what it is, but kind of crude compared to eWallet. Nothing in the way of being able to tailer or add to the fields. Nothing in the way of pre-built fields for much of anything beyond the basics.

    b-folder looks like the best option I've found -- desktop version coming soon, apparently.

    Another excellent options, and one which should beat all others is SecForms. Unfortunately, it's so convoluted to use, it's shameful. It is very powerful though, and has a lot of potential, as long as the developers get the user flow sorted out.

    Secret Box

    Secret Box

    This one is another pretty simple application, nothing much pre-built. Basically you define a secret, there are really only two fields:

    • Name
    • Secret (text, type in anything)

    You have then an entry password. So nothing prebuilt in terms of userid/password, credit-card-number/expertiation-date/ccn, etc. So you can free text things, and the fonts are all readable on a Droid (unlike, say Wallet), but kind of on the primitive side.

    I cannot seem to find b-folder in the Android Marketplace. Searched on b-folder and folder, nothing much seems to come up. Of course, could be that it doesn't support Android 2.0 (I'm running the search from a Droid), or that I'm just not having it come up. Any hints further?

    I am playing now with Secforms. You're right, it does look much closer to eWallet, at least so far.
