NuWallet App to be Pre-Loaded on All Rapids Wireless Android Tablets

NuWallet, Inc. has come developed an app that will be pre-loaded on all Android tablets by Rapids Wireless Corporation.

The app serves as a digital wallet for mobile devices, and facilitates online payments while organizing personal financial information on the user’s smartphone or other mobile device.

The decision to pre-load the app on the Androids it puts out makes Rapids Wireless the first company to grant such a high status to the NuWallet app, and other providers may follow this step.

“Rapids Wireless was looking for a unique app that would securely protect the user’s personal information,” said Rapids Wireless CEO David Thompson. “Having Nu-Wallet pre-loaded on all of our tablets re-enforces the need to provide secure, useful applications for our customers.”

NuWallet’s app includes a feature called “MyNotes,” which works as a security vault for sensitive information like passwords and account numbers.

George Hendrix, president of NuWallet, explained the service in more detail; “By storing personal information within the NuWallet app, it returns control of information security to the owner. This technology all but eliminates the ability for a hacker to gain access to the user’s personal information which is encrypted and can only be accessed by entering the user’s unique security PIN.”

The app also offers customers a quick way to complete online transactions, facilitating the process of online-shopping, which has become increasingly popular in recent years.

Thompson described the NuWallet app as “the ‘de-facto’ device for shopping over the Internet.”

The app also allows a user to bookmark favorite stores for online-shopping, shortening the process even further for nearly instant-access for shoppers on the go.

The company’s webpage notes, “The NuWallet application provides a very high level of security of the consumer’s information, storing all personal data locally on the device using strong encryption,” and “The consumer’s information is not ‘stored-in-the-cloud,’ where their choices can be tracked, monitored or used for other purposes, and is never combined or stored with countless other records or data.”

Privacy has become a large concern for customers in recent years, and NuWallet is ideal for protecting financial transactions made on the Web. 

In addition to its being pre-loaded on Rapids Wireless’ Android tablets, the app is available for free from both Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
