SplashShopper Review

From PalmAddicts:

SplashShopper provides a clean interface of an extremely useful data manager. The roots are obviously a glorified grocery shopping list, but the possibilities are really quite diverse given the great way in which the program is laid out. Need to organize a library (eg: books, magazines,, etc., those things you hold in your hand, curl the edges of the pages, write in the margins, etc.), SplashShoppper has a way to do it.

Trying to single-handedly break the recession by going on a shopping spree to end all shopping sprees, but still want the best price? This software helps you to organize what you saw, where, at which price. Doesn’t have to clothes and shoes; it could be software and gadgets on main street or the ‘net. Decided to move up from Bacardi Breezers to bottles of wine which have a label that don’t attract the local winos to your side? This software can help you remember the name, vintage, price, place of purchase, etc.

The programmers had a bit of fun as well by including a wide choice of icons to show which things on the “All” list have been chosen to go on the “Need” list. Nine possible columns of information can be seen, and the user can choose to sort the list you’ve created by whichever column you’d like. Probably you’d only show three or four at a time, but that still gives a great deal of flexibility. Preplanned categories of lists include Books, Chinese Food, Clothes, Gifts, Groceries, Movies, Music, Travel Checklist, and Wine.

File Magic for iPhone review

From WhatsoniPhone:

Applications that allow you to transfer files from your Mac or PC to your iPhone or iPod Touch and back again aren't unusual these days. There are many currently available and a number are quite good. File Magic comes a little bit late to the game but it's clear that the folks at SplashData took their time to think through how to best manage this task and have come up with one of, if not the best, solutions.

SplashID: Password Security review

From Tre Lawrence:

All in all, it was easy to remember why I loved this program on my Palm, and why it should be essential on your handheld. The interoperability of the desktop and handheld units is a great idea; it allows for two methods of data entry. The auto-fill feature helps thwart keylogging.
Having a secure database that can store even birthdays is priceless, and I highly recommend this to anyone who has more than one password to remember.

SplashID for BlackBerry Review

From Morning Paper:

This is one of the more simple and easy reviews that I will do all year. Since I have already reviewed SplashID for Palm seveal times, I know this title pretty well. But having left the PalmOS for the Blackberry world, there was a short time that I also had to leave SplashID behind as well. That time passed with the release of SplashID for the Blackberry OS.

SplashShopper for BlackBerry helps organize both shopping and gift giving

From GearDiary:

SplashShopper is a brilliant little program I use on both my iPhone and BlackBerry. The software organizes my grocery list and holiday gift giving. In the past I’ve done a lot of last minute buying only because I’d failed to make a proper list leading up to the holidays. Not so this year. I’ve tailored SplashShopper as outlined on the next page - to track the people who I need to buy gifts for.SplashShopper allows for multiple lists. As you can see from the following screen shot, it can be tailored to track your CD list, clothing, wine and even book collection.

Quick Review: FlipSide for BlackBerry

From PDA-247:

Devices like the BlackBerry Bold and Storm have incredibly good audio quality, but the built-in music software is nothing more than a list of the albums and songs you have installed. It works quite efficiently with the trackball, but could do with some sprucing up when you compare it to the iPhone etc.

FlipSide from ElectricPocket does the ‘sprucing up’ for BlackBerry owners and provides a rich experience that takes searching through large amounts of music and gathering extra information to a new and surprisingly gratifying level. I have many, many albums loaded on my Bold and a quick experiment of attempting to download album art proved very successful. Of over 100 albums, only 4 could not be found and many of my albums are what you may call slightly obscure. When you click on an album cover the tracks contained within are listed, and you then scroll through them to choose the one you wish to play. I tried to do a screenshot of the track listing, but snapscreen just removed the listing before the shot was taken?

Choosing FlipSide Extras from the menu will take you to a page at last.fm detailing release information and recommendations for similar music. This appears to then link to Wikipedia for further information and the whole process works very well indeed.

FlipSide does not change the way the music sounds and is in practice no quicker than the built-in music software, but it changes the ‘experience’ of playing music on a mobile device and is now my preferred method of mobile music management. It is good value for $19.95 and adds a touch of class to any business orientated BlackBerry. Also available for Windows Mobile devices.

SplashWallet bundle works for securing your "mind"

From PalmAddicts:

Everyone I know will describe me as a genius when it comes to remembering technical data or procedures, but when I try to manage money or passwords, I become a deer in headlights. About a year ago, I got SplashID for my Palm to store my passwords and keys for work and home, and I don't load up a smartphone without it.

About a month ago, I received a BlackBerry Bold from my employer (lucky me, I know), and I began to understand what all the Crackberry addicts love about it, but something just kept bugging me about the built in password manager. It wasn't near as robust as SplashID, so I went to upgrade to SplashID for Blackberry.

When I got to the site, something told me to take a peek at the other software in the SplashWallet Suite that they offer. I wanted to get SplashMoney anyway, so for the price of 2, I got 4 pieces of software!

SplashWallet reviewed - Part Two

From The Gadgeteer:

OK, for everyone who remembers Part 1 of this review from way back last year, you should recall that SplashData’s SplashWallet is a package of four great utilities for $59.95 - SplashMoney and SplashShopper, reviewed last time, and SplashID and SplashPhoto, which we will look at today.

These two applications really live up the idea of a ‘digital wallet’ in that they bring to your Palm functions that your wallet usually does, but better. For example, SplashID not only holds your private info but it encrypts it and SplashPhoto can show photos as slide shows.
