The [itunes link=”″ title=”wallet” text=”Wallet”] app for iPhone is a lightweight database app that stores your important information, such as credit card numbers, passwords, credit card data, and software serial numbers.The deposited information is securely stored using 256-bit AES encryption, which should protect data even from a forensics expert.

You can create, edit, and remove both groups and entries, and universally search the app within your data fields.

Wallet is also optimized for the iPhone’s Retina Display and is incredibly fast and efficient, which is something that can’t be said for many password-storing applications.

Most importantly, Wallet for iPhone  syncs wirelessly with Wallet for Mac ($19.99 in the Mac App Store). You can sync anywhere over-the-air using MobileMe, Dropbox, or your own WebDAV server.

Other features include the ability to automatically fill in web forms with your Wallet data using the built-in browser. This can save an enormous amount of time, and adds a level of convenience to a tedious process. You can also view PDFs, photos, Word documents and more attached from the Mac version.

While I generally just use Wallet as a database strictly on the iPhone, its value to MobileMe users would be immeasurable. In the app, you can synchronize your encrypted Wallet information to multiple Macs, iPhones, or iPod Touches using MobileMe. All these devices share the same database, and sync setup is performed by completing a few minor configuration steps on each device. You can also sync directly between the devices and your Mac using Wi-Fi.

Wallet is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and requires iOS 4.2 or later. You can download it for [itunes link=”″ title=”wallet” text=”$4.99 in the App Store”].
