RoboForm [ Free – iTunes link ] my favorite desktop password manager is now available on the iPhone. The RoboForm app makes it easy to log in to just about any mobile friendly website from your iPhone.
Just like the desktop version, the iPhone version provides you the ability auto-fill passwords, logins and forms with one tap of the finger.
The iPhone version of RoboForm has the ability to sync with the desktop version via RoboForm Online. Taking your passwords with you when you are on the go is awesome. In order to use this app you must have a RoboForm Online account, it’s a requirement. No worries, you can signup for a free RoboForm Online account if you don’t have one.
The only downside of the app is you are forced into using the integrated mobile browser once you’ve login into the website you accessed using RoboForm. If it had all the feature of Safari then things would be OK, but it doesn’t.
I give this app two thumbs up for it’s simplicity and it’s ability to make me more productive. I love it and I wouldn’t leave home with out it.
The latest update for the Google Mobile app on the iPhone includes a ninja. They call this out as specific feature update. You can find the ninja by opening the application to the search screen on your iPhone. You’ll see the Ninja appear as one of A. Googlers comments. Be patient, it might take awhile for him to show up. Trust me, he is there. I would like to thank @chrismessina for pointing this out to me. Chris was also one of the first people to find the Bells & Whistle Easter egg in the previous Google MoApp update prior to Google announcement.
Check out the screen capture of the mobile ninja on my phone:

UPDATE: If you want more Google Ninja, check out the ninja shirt I made at Zazzle.com.
It took me awhile, but I finally figured out how to set up my Ping.fm account in Tweetie. I thought I would take a moment to write up a quick guide to walk you through the process of setting up your Ping.fm in Tweetie in case you are having trouble. The process is simple you just need to have faith…
Learn more about the iPhone Twitter app Tweetie. (You’ll need iTunes to to view this page.)
A Step by Step Guide to Setting Up Ping.fm on the iPhone Twitter App Tweetie:
- Launch Tweetie on your iPhone. (Please Note: The settings for Ping.fm are not located in the Tweetie Settings under Settings. But, you will need to have the multiple accounts option turned on for this to work. That is found under settings.)
- Tap the Accounts button in the upper left corner of the app.
- Tap the Edit button in the upper left hand corner of the app.
- Tap on the Twitter account you would like to attach to your Ping.fm account to. Do not worry touching the account name will not “Delete” the account.
- Tap on the Advanced options.
- Tap on the Ping.fm option.
- Enter in your Mobile Key from Ping.fm. Go to http://ping.fm/key to get your key.
- Success!!! You should now see an Authorized alert pop up.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
P.S. I don’t know about you, but I’m really digging the new Dark theme for Tweetie. It’s Nice.
In celebration of completing the upgrade of my site to WordPress 2.7, I thought I write my post using the the iPhone mobile WordPress app. It’s not a bad little app. I can add photos. I cannot add links within my posts. I’m still getting used to typing on this thing vs the blackjack. It’s not bad considering I have big thumbs.
The upgrade process was pretty easy. I went from WP version 2.1 to 2.7. I really enjoy the new admin UI. It was pretty easy to set up the plug-ins with integrated download plug-in feature. I’m going to leave the default theme in place until I can design my own.
Now that I’ve completed the upgrade I’m going to start on the redesign.
