Protect your sensitive data from prying eyes
Here we have a good name for a good program. Wallet can store all your important information in a clear and well structured interface.
Those of you that already use Apple's Keychain Access will find some similarities in Wallet's interface. Items you create can be saved in one of the existing groups like serial numbers, web services or credit cards and you can also create your own.
Wallet includes a handy password generator for when you have trouble finding a good one to use. Just type in where you want numbers or letters, if you want it to be pronounceable or not and let it do it's job. Wallet also works with Apple's Password Assistant to let you create a very solid one.
The application comes with a Dashboard widget which can let you search for any item stored in Wallet.
As expected, Wallet comes with an autofill feature, great for handling forms on the web. I was a bit surprised that this feature only works with Safari, OmniWeb and IE. Surely other browser like Firefox or Opera should have been included.
Despite this slight limitation, Wallet is a great app to store any sort of sensitive data and create strong passwords.

With about 400 documents it takes over 12 minutes to sync Wallet using Dropbox. It has always been slow even before Dropbox. If the syncing was to be fixed this would be a 5 star application. I have been using it for about 3 years and love everything about it except the syncing. I have written the developer in the past but have not seen any change. It appears to be replacing all entries when a sync is done. Make one small change and wait 10 to 15 minutes while it syncs. Need to do incremental syncing.
Pros: Very nice layout Easy to set up foldeers and reccords
Cons: Painfully slow syncing changes.
