It’s important, from time to time, to discuss the delicate yet essential process of protecting your sensitive data. We’ve discussed apps before that are designed to help you do this, but today we’re going to take a look at another entry in that race.
I’ve been exploring mSecure, an app for iPad from the developers at mSevenSoftware, that aims to organize and secure all sorts of sensitive information, whether it’s personal or business related. There are many apps on the market that fill this niche, and even some clear frontrunners. So the question is: is there room for another password manager on the App Store?
For most power users (and I’ll assume that most of you are), security is important. Even for you non-power users, it should be important. Don’t make the tragic slip-up of using “123456” as your password for every site and service you frequent. But when you start using a different complex, alphanumeric password for every login, how do you keep track of them?
We have discussed (at length) the merits of and differences between Wallet and 1Password (and even some other competitors) here on AppStorm. As a big fan of Acrylic Apps, I tend to lean toward Wallet, but it even slipped past me when Acrylic quietly updated the iOS version to a universal app, complete with a freshly designed, iPad-optimized interface. It should go without saying, but if you already own the iPhone app, you’ll have access to the iPad version for no additional charge. However, if you haven’t sprung for Wallet on iOS yet, will the iPad version be the deciding factor?
