Google Wallet Fixes Bug

For any iOS users that gave up on Google Wallet due to the inability to login using an Authenticator, Version 2.0.13611 Released February 4, 2014 fixes this bug. Now that I can authenticate, I happy to have another option to Passbook for the sake of having options and to add my rewards programs that don’t work with Passbook.

This bug made it impossible to authenticated to Google Wallet if you had a single device with Google Authenticator and Google Wallet as well as a long & complex password. Backgrounding the Google Wallet App, would cancel the authentication process, so you would have to copy your Authenticator code before entering your password.

Favorite iPhone 5 Case

My favorite iPhone 5 case is the CM4 iPhone Wallet Q Card Case. This case claims to hold 3 cards, but I’m only comfortable keeping a credit card and my driver’s license in it. It securely holds these two cards. I think 3 cards would be secure, but I think they would stretch out the leather. Some people worry about losing “everything”, but I see this as only having to keep track of one thing.

When I need to carry cash or additional cards, I grab my old Kenneth Cole REACTION since it is a pretty slim bi-fold wallet.
