Information Appliance Associates today released PocketMac SecureNotes, which the company touts as the first software tool to act as a safe deposit box for data on Mac systems. PocketMac SecureNotes is a database-driven tool allowing Mac users to store all types of data from bank account numbers, movies, pictures, code snippets and more using 448-bit encryption. PocketMac engineers have tested SecureNotes for more than nine months to ensure the software keeps data safe with easy synchronization and export capabilities, and the application integrates with PocketMac for BlackBerry to support synchronization of data with a BlackBerry from any desired Mac. PocketMac SecureNotes is priced at $30, runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
