Accounts central

Keep personal data from multiple accounts on your iPhone with this ultimate management tool.

Although more a record-keeper than a true assistant, Pageonce's ad-supported Personal Assistant app gives you the tools to view all your online accounts in one centralized location. Sure, you'll have to be comfortable storing all your passwords on your phone, but if you are, you'll find yourself relying on it to get all your details in a glance.

After adding accounts through an assisted browsing process, you'll be able to view a history of your banking transactions, stock portfolio, social commitments, and friends' status updates from a slew of social networks, e-mail accounts, and shopping services, like Netflix, Amazon, and eBay.

The read-only nature is lamentable--we'd prefer to act on e-mail messages and alerts--but A Personal Assistant undoubtedly gives you a quick reading on your vital signs.

In response to security concerns, Pageonce is shielded by 256-bit encryption, and the company sends you an e-mail alert of suspicious activity if "you" spend above your usual levels. The application's settings let you determine how passwords are saved, can limit your access to your particular device, and can delete all data stored on it if you move on. If you lose your phone, disabling your mobile account online pulls the plug. Upgrading to the premium version tacks on an extra layer of security in addition to a few more features.
