Ricardo Batista releases autoID 2.0.1 for Mac OS X Leopard

June 24, 2009 in Utility (E)

[prMac.com] Woburn, Massachusetts - Independent software developer Ricardo Batista today is proud to announce autoID 2.0.1, an update to his popular password manager for Mac OS X. With a focus on ease-of-use, autoID allows users to manage hundreds of their website links, ID's and passwords without having to remember anything about a site. autoID supports most major browsers, such as Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, iCab, Opera and others.

autoID was specifically designed to log into websites and fill in web forms automatically. Click on the first entry field and press option-command-/ (slash) or option-command-, (comma). autoID then locates the appropiate login information in its database. autoID automatically fills in the proper ID and password or alternatively, asks for what kind of information should be filled by pointing and clicking in a popup dialog.

In the popup dialog, users can select items from different categories, such as credit cards, logins and personal information. autoID uses industry standard, strong 448 bit encryption to keep the database secure, so it can be used to track serial numbers, credit card information, important notes and more.

Version 2.0.1 now supports Mac OS X Leopard, and sets the roadmap for an upcoming iPhone version that will include Wifi synchronization. A complete re-design of the desktop version will follow the iPhone version.

"The iPhone version currently in development has been designed with ease of use and extremely fast access to data" said Ricardo Batista. "We have studied the use of cell phones and designed autoID for fast access to data with minimum steps. Instead of taking 3-4 steps for example, you can access data and edit data in 1-2 steps. We have payed attention to users' suggestions and carefully designed the app based on all the feedback."
