Ben requires an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or 4th generation iPod touch (iOS 4.0 or later).


NOT ALL PHOTOS ARE FOR FACEBOOK

· New flash control in camera allows for crystal clear and secure snapshots (iPhone 4 only)



NEVER FORGET YOUR SECRET RENDEZ-VOUS
· To create individual event reminders, simply set a title and date
· Take advantage of discreet push notifications for your events that remind without revealing (choose between two different Ben voice alerts or your default alarm)
· Keep a record of all your events (listed as Upcoming or Completed)


PROTECT PRECIOUS PASSWORDS
· Choose between 7 convenient default password templates (Web Login, Bank Account, Credit Card, Passport, Membership, Serial Number, Drivers License)

SECRET NOTE TO YOURSELF

SAFEGUARD YOUR DIGITAL “LITTLE BLACK BOOK”
