    I got tired of quietly waiting for SplashID desktop sync to appear so I wrote Splash Data to inquire. Based on the ensuing emails, it looks as if it's finally coming in a couple weeks. According to them it is a web based product. Below is a copy of communications.

    Yippee!

    Are you ever going to release the desktop component of SplashID to sync with WebOS? If so when do you expect to release it? I'm still carrying around my Centro only because of SplashID. Even if you just let the mobile version import / export csv to email would be fine.

    Thanks

    Thank you for the reply. Will the Web version of SplashID be able to sync with WebOS phones like the Palm Pre Plus? Also, will it be able to import data from previous versions of SplashID - particularly v4.x for Palm OS / Windows?

    Thank you,

    Don't know how I feel about my passwords being in the cloud. Will have to see about that.

    Good to hear! I can't wait until we get many of the app that Apple has already. It will be nice when I can play Words With Friends. Or something like it

    That's great. I have been very happy with SplashID for a long time (since PalmOS versions) and the program on WebOS is pretty nice. The upcoming sync will make it even better.

    I'm a big fan of the cloud concept. I use Gmail, store my contacts in Google and will use some form of cloud memo and document storage as soon as I find one I like.

    But putting all my passwords in the cloud? Nope. Not happening.

    SplashData has been saying this for months... I contact them 2 months ago and they said they had an alpha version that was supposed to come out soon. It looks like they have 1 part-time person working on this on some weekends and are taking sooo long that I just gave up on them.

    Does the PalmOS version sync to desktop well with Classic?

    I've given up on SplashID after having used it forever on PalmOS. The current WebOS version still has problems importing large record sets, doesn't properly sort Types if you have created new ones and imported them, and using their current backup method of emailing myself a backup file has failed. I'm looking into jVault.

    All my IDs and passwords, and personal info on the web? No thanks.

    I also looked into SpashID and found that Jvault from Cohosoft works really well and you can back up your password via email but also they have a separate Windows PC app that works with the webOS Jvault.

    CohoSoft - jVault

    Which folder on the Pre do you insert the .csv file so that you can download the file onto the phone?

    Well now I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. After thinking that I had given up on SplashID, now I don't know. There are things I don't like about jVault and things that I don't like about the SplashID for WebOS. But after trialing both, I find jVault on my Pre semi-unusable. I have a large data set ~ 750 records, and if I search for say my login to Netflix for example, where I have about 375 records in the category Login, it takes forever to scroll down to Netflix. So I use the search function in jVault -> it took 48 seconds to return results. It appears that any search will search the entire db, not just the current category. In SplashID, the same search took as long as it took me to type N E T.

    FOLLOW UP: I have found that there is a function within jVault for "Search Titles Only." This is much quicker, about only 4 seconds of actual search. However first the user has to:
    1) click on the Search icon
    2) type letters "net"
    3) click on the Search icon again
    4) wait and get results - results will be returned for partial matches e.g. if I typed "net" (looking for Netflix) it will also return: Dish Network, Precentral.net, etc

    With SplashID:
    1) type letters "net"
    2) get immediate results - results will be returned for full matches on the beginning of the word e.g. if I typed "net" (looking for Netflix) it only returnd: Netflix

    jVault looks much better in this light.

    I would love to see them make SplashMoney. I still keep my Treo just for that app.

    I'm hoping that the "Web" version doesn't actually store the database in the cloud, but it just used the wireless IP connection to sync to the desktop.

    There's a lot of things I don't like about jVault either. Especially when importing a SplashID database doesn't import the field names and you can't edit them on the desktop, only on the phone.

    I just keep hoping that SplashID will happen soon. It's really the only thing I keep my Treo around for anymore.

    I have a feeling this is what we are going to get: https://www.splashid.com/account/login ... i think that we are just going to get their SplashID Live access (which is a cloud solution) and not a local sync solution.. makes me so sad!

    As a few have indicated, it would take a lot of convincing to put the keys to "my world" on a cloud site maintained by third party.

    How are we assured that no one at Splash has access to the unencrypted data?
    Is the encryption method used such that even the person that wrote the software cannot also write decryption software that could access the decrypted data without the password?

    Overall, for passwords, I still would prefer a totally local solution, like PasswordsPlus ported to WebOS and syncable with the desktop version. But no one seems to be jumping right in there to do that.
