Today, I was contacted by Germán Arduino from PasswordsPro to inform me that they would offer me a license for their product in exchange of a blog post. So I went surfing on their official website to gather some information about it, which looks really interesting. Indeed, everyone of us has to remember so many passwords today that it may become difficult to manage.
Considering that to avoid security issues, you’re supposed to - and should - have a different password for each service (just like you have different keys for your car, your home, etc), that you sometimes have to choose passwords with a minimum length and special characters, which makes them even more difficult to remember and that we’re using an increasing number of services on the web, having all these passwords stored into a program, encrypted and protected by a single master password may be very valuable. This is where PasswordsPro comes in. In addition to storing all your passwords under one collective roof, you can also protect text files and bring it all wherever you go, on a USB stick for example. Very interesting.

Balsamiq Mockups is a great tool that enables you to draw prototypes of applications. This soft features about 80 controls - ranging from dropdowns to cover flows - that you can drag/drop, resize, customize, etc in order to make your prototype the more precise as possible. This is again a tool that we’ve used at work to make some prototypes about the future version of our application and we were very happy with the results, so I strongly recommend this tool.
Unfortunately, I don’t own myself a license for this tool yet, but I’ve heard that Balsamiq was kind enough to offer some in exchange of a blog post, so I’m trying my luck
See you soon !
