Personal Dashboard perfect mobile app for tough economy

Have you checked out PageOnce on your iPhone yet? In just three months they are one of the top 10 productivity apps and 200,000+ have downloaded it. Here’s Guy Goldstein, CEO, telling me about the company and giving me a demo on last Friday’s WorkFastTV show.

One thing I learned is that this week they are shipping a version of this popular app on Blackberry mobile phones too.

What makes it a great productivity app? It lets you see all sorts of personal information. Your bank balances. Your stock plans. Your credit card accounts. Your Netflix account. Your favorite airlines. And a lot more. All in one screen and it warns you when you have bills due. Great stuff for keeping up to date on your finances.

    Looks like I’m late to the party, but I’ll answer anyway:

    Memengo Wallet only stores the passwords, it doesn’t use them to access other web sites or anything. In fact it could never use them as passwords are encrypted before they are sent to the Memengo.com Web site (this encryption layer is actually the selling point).

    FD: I’m the author of Memengo Wallet.

  3. It might be nice, except that it would be tempting to check them ALL the time. I find that once a week for handling my budget and bank balance works just fine.

  4. Yah… what that scoble guy said! What a rock star. By the way…. he’s probably the only guy that could tell you the name of PCI / PCMCIA webcam company that was partly owned by Sean Connery.

  6. I tend to use different passwords for different important sites for a reason. Trusting them all to a startup service thus doesn’t seem like the right thing for the sake of convenience.

    Besides, a lot of my financial accounts nowadays use additional authentication verification mechanisms beyond a mere userid/password combo and thus likely wouldn’t work anyway.

    How about someone create an open source version that I can run on my own machine, so there is no need to store the passwords on a 3rd party system somewhere in the cloud? (open source, of course, so I can review the code to make sure it doesn’t phone home).

  8. I would like to use these sites, but the fact that have all my passwords scare me too much. I’ll probably just use the portable Keepass.

  10. David: well, you do need to put your bank passwords into it. That requires a lot of trust that a lot of people won’t have. Also, if you lose your iPhone people could have access to your bank account info before you are able to change the passwords on all your accounts.

  12. Hi Robert, this got me excited, but there are a lot of negative reviews centering on privacy/ phishing issues. I’m sufficiently put off to not entrust my info to them.
