    if you have a mac, then ewallet should not be an option since there will not be any possibility of syncing data in your iphone with your mac anytime in the near future, if ever. if you are a pc user, then i don't think 1password should be an option either since there is no desktop pc software and sync. to put all my critical passwords on a website is not an option for me, ever.

    by the way, i use ewallet and it is a gorgeous program. very intuitive UI, and it really feels like it was designed with the iphone in mind. I can't wait until they have the sync with the desktop program, i only hope the sync works as well as splashid (i have splashid and ewallet but have settled on ewallet based primarily on how great the ewallet screens look)

    I use 1Password with my mac and iPhone. Like it alot. One thing to clarify is that 1Password does not store anything online.

    Update: There is another app (memengo wallet) that apparently does store passwords online for syncing).

    Used 1password and purchased ewallet. 1password excels at filling in your username/password on websites. It is not good at simply storing your username/passwords/bank accounts, etc in a easy way. eWallet is excellent at this. There is a future sync coming for mac desktops, yet there has been no problems crashing or any other problem. I recommend ewallet. I have since deleted 1password off of iPhone.

    Unfortunately the current version of 1Password doesn't work (won't fill in fields). Hopefully a new version that works will be up very soon.

    Not according to Illium software. They say it's coming. I had an email conversation with them and they will support syncing an ewallet file with mac.

    Except that they don't say when, just sometime by the end of the year. I had the same email conversation. PC desktop will be released this month.

    Another option to consider is SplashID.

    SplashID and eWallet are the same type of app.
