SPB Wallet : A Happy Consumer
If you are like me, you would be a working professional pumping in 12 hours a day at work, not because you love it, because you are *required* to do it. Also, you would be living in a different city away from your parents with your wife and kid. Basically, you would be a working professional living in a nuclear family managing your household stuff yourself.
I pay my mobile bills online. Broadband dongle, Property tax, Electricity Bills, EMIs and practically everything, that can be done online is done online. Simply because, I don’t have time!
Similarly, I live a comparatively active social life. I am on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare among others. I have an Ovi account (eeesh, I use a Nokia…… still!).
And then there are Netbanking and stuff.
It sometimes becomes impossible for me to remember all my usernames and passwords. Especially for Electricity bills or other bills which I probably need to login once a month.
I needed a strong wallet application. Something which would remain with me beyond my E72!
I am a happy Quickoffice customer. Been using Quickoffice 6 since long, recently purchased Quickoffice expense and both have never ceased to amaze me with their *simply works* ease. So naturally, I went to the site for the Wallet application as well. I saw SPB Wallet in their app store at 50% discount. SPB are a fantastic bunch of people. Consumers using Nokia’s touchphones would have found it very hard to resist their SPB Mobile Shell App. I bought that at $14.95.
I have been using that app for the past three 3 days and absolutely digging it. Everything at your fingertips.
When you download the application from the link provided in the mail the comes to you after the purchase, it goes into your applications/My Stuff folder. When you click, it will ask for a password. You can feed in a password through the phone qwerty or the app’s qwerty. My suggestion is to keep it real strong.
Once you feed in the password, you are taken to the main screen. Here you start putting in your usernames and passwords corresponding to the headings. It makes life real simple.
For example, all my emails and social media and utility bills usernames and passwords are saved in Computers. It becomes easier for me to organize it that way.
Then I can have my cards sorted out under credit cards and Personal can have my Driving Licence etc details.
The best thing that it provides is data synchronization and Web browser integration. It keeps the data synced and if God forbid, you lose your phone, your data still remains with you. Even in the web, if you want to access the data, you need to feed in that password. Sorry, I cannot provide those sceenshots as they are synced with my personal laptop and my official laptop, ah well, that’s another story! 😉 My recommendation is to keep that password ultra strong. Please keep on logging into the app again and again to memorize but DO NOT write that anywhere. J
There are many wallet applications available. You have Smartphoneware’s Best Safe, Epocware’s Handy Safe pro and Quickoffice’s QuickID also.
Do you use any wallet application? Do let me know if you use SPB Wallet and if you think, I have missed out on any point, do let me know. 🙂
