New User Interface

Pattern

  • Safari plugin now supports Other Record Types. So you can find and copy credit card numbers on the fly when using the browser.

Plugin

  • Reminder feature for individual records. To use it, double click a record to edit, then click the Reminder button. Choose the date in the future you want to be reminded to update the record. Save. You'll get the reminder when you launch on that day. Great for passwords that you need to change regularly or credit cards expiration dates.

Reminder

SplashID 5.0 - Major Upgrade - July 22, 2009

Note: This is an optional paid upgrade from previous versions ($9.95). Purchase the upgrade from the registration dialog on launch.

  • Security Enhancements:
    • AES. This US government approved encryption standard has been added on top of the already powerful Blowfish algorithm.
    • Password Hint Question. Password hints can be a little too easy sometimes, so first you'll have to answer one of the security questions of your choosing before the hint is revealed.
    • Password Strength Indicator. Added to the Set Password dialog and the Password Generator. Don't feel bad if you like short passwords. We all do.
    • Clear Clipboard on Exit. This default option is found in the Options dialog. It plainly makes sense.
  • Browser Plug-In. SplashID in your browser! A search box and Web Login picker is added to Safari/Internet Explorer if you install it. This replicates the web autofill functionality from the SplashID desktop, but as an installed plugin for Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Mac). Sorry, but Firefox and other browsers will not be supported at this time. To install the plugin, go to File > Plugin for Safari/Internet Explorer > Install.
  • Install to Removable Device. Now you can take SplashID on a thumb drive (or whatever) anywhere you go. Copies the application and database files to <Removable Disk>/SplashID folder.
  • Add Attachments. A new field has been added to the database so you can add a file (up to 1mb) to the record for association and safe keeping.
  • Add Icons. Just click Add Icons in the Icon Picker, so your record and type icons can be whatever you like. You will also notice we updated some of the old rickety icons.
  • Smart Types. In the lower left of the Detail View, you will find 3 Smart Types containing the latest 10: Most Viewed, Recently Modified, and Recently Viewed. These help you get to your most popular records faster.
  • Scrollable Detail Pane. If your Notes are longer than the provided space in the Detail Pane, you will have a scroll bar so you can view the full notes without having to open the Edit dialog.
  • Resizable Edit Dialog. You can now vertically resize the Edit Dialog so you can get more out of that notes field.
  • Better Keyboard Support. You can tab between windows and UI elements better now to avoid that annoying mouse click.
  • Enhanced Database Sync Logic. When using the database sync feature introduced in version 4, you should no longer have lost or duplicated records.
  • Drag and Drop Records into Types. Need to change the type assignment for a record? Select it, then click it, the drag it into the destination type (Panel View).
  • DeDupe Tool. Scans the database for records containing the same data and offers to delete them. Found in the File menu.
  • Event Viewer. Logs your activity in SplashID so we can provide you with the Smart Types. This may also be useful in technical support scenarios. Found in the View menu. The log file only contains record names - none of the other fields. You can file this file:
    • Mac OS: ~/Documents/SplashID/SplashIDLogFile.plist
    • Windows: C:\Users\<user>\Documents\SplashData\SplashID\Preferences\EventsLog.xml
  • Better Print support. For record list, text is wrapped, and there is an option to print notes. For individual records, nice new layout.
  • Minimize to System Tray. On Windows, you have the option of minimizing to the System Tray (bottom right) instead of the Task Bar. To enable this, go to Options > Minimize Options.
  • Sequential Backup System. Auto backup now saves multiple backup files so you don't lose your data if you have a database meltdown, then quit SplashID and overwrite the backup file on exit (as in previous versions). Now backups have sequential filenames, Backup 0, Backup 1, Backup 2, Backup 3, etc. When Backup 9 is reached, the next save replaces Backup 0, so you don't spiral into infinitely diminishing hard disk space.
