I absolutely love this new iPhone app! I have already loaded it up for both eBay and PayPal. Can't wait for mass adoption by the banks and brokerages.

Hello,

I just upgraded from my iPhone 2G to the iPhone 3GS, it seems to have loaded the app just fine (it has the same Credential ID) but it shows a blank area where the security code should go, however the timer keeps counting down and cycling. How do I resolve this? (the e-mail I used for commenting works fine, but I don't think it's a 3.0 bug, my 2G is on 3.0 and still works fine with this app)

Iphone has so many great apps... My favourite one is maps. I found it very useful, when searching a street without having an internet connection or signs to look for. I found the address very easy. Too bad the battery lasts so little and is not replaceable... Otherwise it would have been the best gadget. Cheers.

Looks like an amazing product, i wonder if its developed and released for Iphone4 as well. I haven't tried it yet but it looks promising even tho the apple itunes options are a bit ridgit, i think this might just add that extra safety layer.  Thanks!
