The most trusted name in password management unveils newly updated iOS and Android apps with enhanced features to keep personal data organized and secure.

Los Gatos, CA, November 13, 2014 — In recent months, news of data breaches with millions of passwords compromised, photos leaked, or financial data stolen have been all too common. Today online security is a top priority, but finding a simple and secure way to keep personal data safe isn’t always easy. Now it is with the newly updated SplashID apps for iOS and Android.

For over 12 years, SplashData’s SplashID has provided a seamless way to store and lock the confidential information of over 1 million users with smartphone and tablet apps, Mac and Windows desktop applications, and web access. Now with SplashID’s latest upgrade to version 8, the SplashData team has added additional security measures and convenient features to ensure SplashID users have access to their personal digital wallet whenever and wherever they are.

While individuals can always resort to keeping usernames, passwords and account numbers on a piece of paper hidden in their desk or on an Excel™ file saved to their computer, it’s easy for passwords to be forgotten, files to be erased, and hard copies of documents to be lost. With SplashID, data is quickly and easily accessible, private and customizable, but—most importantly—secure.

With the new version, SplashID is available as a free app for the first time. To use SplashID with multiple devices or browsers requires an easy upgrade to SplashID Pro.

“Now more than ever, people need simple and effective ways of keeping their personal information private and secure,” said Morgan Slain, SplashData’s CEO. “With version 8, we are excited to make SplashID’s combination of security and convenience free for a new generation of users and at the same time bring powerful new features to our advanced users with SplashID Pro.”

SplashID 8 offers a unique combination of features and benefits:

  • Access: Only SplashID provides free, native, secure apps for iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, and the web, plus a browser plugin for Chrome. Version 8 updates for SplashID’s native apps on Windows Phone, BlackBerry, other browsers, and USB drives are coming soon.
  • Choice of sync and storage: Users decide how to store and sync their records with convenient cloud sync, local network Wi-Fi sync, or on-device storage.
  • Touch ID login for iOS.
  • Customizable record types and categories keep information organized.
  • Photo capture feature quickly and easily stores credit card information.
  • File attachments: Upload photos, documents, and add notes to any record for reference.
  • Protection features include 256-bit encryption and 2-factor authentication.
  • Secure sharing: Safely share records with other SplashID users or even those who don’t use SplashID.
  • Automatic SplashID Backup service to ensure data never gets lost.
  • Security dashboard provides usage statistics and tools to monitor and fix weak, reused, and old passwords.
  • Web autofill saves typing in usernames, passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers and delivers the correct address from the secure data vault every time to prevent phishing.
  • Refer a friend to SplashID and both parties receive a 25% discount on a SplashID Pro subscription.

SplashID is available now for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. For access across multiple devices (for example, iOS and Mac) and additional services like sync and automated backup, upgrade to SplashID Pro for $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year.

The iOS educational app provides interactive learning components to encourage children to embrace individuality.

Cologne, Germany, November 12, 2014 — Discover the magic of bombardier beetles in Little Luna – Big Talent, Bastei Entertainment’s newest addition to their portfolio of mobile applications. Designed for children ages 4 to 8, this delightful interactive story teaches children about the importance of embracing their own individuality.

The story of Little Luna begins with a lesson on a bombardier beetle’s special talent – tooting! While typically bombardier beetles use tooting as a defense mechanism in the wild, for Luna and her family it is a way to express themselves. Children will enjoy following along with Luna as she introduces each of her family members and the unique ways in which they utilize their talents.

Through fun mini games like practicing toot target-shooting with her dad, doing yoga with her mom, and matching musical melodies with her brothers, the story of Little Luna and her family encourages children to pursue their own special talents even if it sets them apart from others. Additionally, the app’s interactive activities promote concentration, musical expression, and coordination.

“Little Luna was designed not only to teach children about bombardier beetles, but also to allow children to embrace and cherish the qualities that make them unique,” says Sabrina Glodde, project manager for Bastei Entertainment. “With the help of our entire team, we were able to make an engaging app to celebrate children for the individuals they are.”

  •     Interactive storybook with games and more!
  •     Simple navigation for a smooth-running interface.
  •     Beautifully designed with delightful music to match.
