I am looking for a program which will hold logins, passwords, serial numbers, and software registration information. It needs to have both a Palm and a Mac OS X interface (with conduit). So far the only one I have seen is Web Confidential.

I'd like to compare it to a couple of other programs before I fork out the $ for WC. What are you using?

hey -

I use SplashID. I've tried Password Wallet, Web Confidential, and Splash ID. Splash ID won. It has a nice OSX interface and an even better plam interface. It will hold all the info you need it for. It also syncs with my PC (which i still need to sync vindigo and avantgo ) Splash ID is 19.95 and you could try it out before buying www.splashdata.com. Hope this info helped.

Web Confidential works great for me! It integrates nicely with browsers and URL Manager Pro as well. From IE I can go to a passworded URL from the shared menu and it will fill in the fields for me.

Another vote for Web Confidential. It's not the cheapest, butit works really well, and the developer has been great at responding to requests (like a beta of the Palm conduit before it was officially released). The newest version works great on the mac under OS X. I had previously used STRIP on my Visor. It was free, but not very flexible, nor did it have a desktop counterpart. I really use both the handheld and desktop versions of WebCon a lot, and am glad I took the plunge.

Thanks, I've been trying SplashID for the last few days. I think it will be the one for me.

So, you didn't have any trouble installing Palm Desktop 4.0? I've been a little hesitant to even attempt installing it.

I myself have had no problems with Palm Desktop for X. I only wish there were more conduits (like Avantgo and DataViz). Vindigo just released their OS X conduit so there is hope.

Another vote for Web Confidential. I too looked a bit around before choosing, but WC was the best for me.

I liked Web Confidential, but I dislike the fact it installs 'shared menus' into my system. I can't use URL Manager Pro on my system since switching to OS X because shared menus causes great instability to IE at least on my system. With Web Confidential (or URL Manager Pro) installed, IE crashes on me all the time. When they are not installed, IE is quite stable.

I agree with you on the "shared menu" thing. And I have to admit that it took me some time to find the right pref on how to disable it.
