The Death of the Dinosaur

How my world changed when I got an iPhone

I’m a refugee from the land of the dinosaur phone, where you hit a button three times to get a “C” and four times to get an “S.” You can imagine how my world changed when I got the iPhone. My first discovery was that the onscreen keyboard makes it a lot easier to compose and send e-mail or texts. I love that I can access my three e-mail accounts wherever I am. I no longer have to wait until I get to the office to be on top of the action.

There’s a number of these apps available in the App Store, but eWallet stands out because it provides 256-bit AES data encryption—the highest available. Additionally, Ilium Software, the developer of this app, provides customer support that is among the best in the business. Finally, the interface is intuitive and easy to use. You can even sync eWallet with your desktop computer, which makes it unique among this crowded field.
