The data in SplashID is stored in records, with the available fields in each record dictated by the type of record (e.g. a web log-in record has a fields for category, username, password, url, date and notes). Records can be viewed by category and/or by type, and there's also a search tool, making it easy to find information, even if you are storing lots of data.
Data is stored using 256-bit Blowfish encryption, but there's also an option for "secure field masking", thereby offering additional protection for sensitive data like passwords. Also useful is the built in password generator, helping to create difficult to guess passwords and avoiding the security risk inherent in using the same passwords repeatedly.
One of the hallmarks of SplashID is the level of customisation available. This extends to the Windows Phone version where you can define list views, choose icons, and edit field labels. The flexible configuration also allows for an unlimited number of customisable record types and categories. This makes it possible to use SplashID for any kind of data, even it doesn't fit into the pre-defined types. While types for the obvious use cases (passwords, credit cards, membership numbers etc.) are built in, there's plenty of other information and data you might want to keep to hand, so the level of flexibility is one of the area where SplashID really stands out from less fully featured apps in this area.
Splash Data has a version of SplashID for the desktop (both Windows and Mac) and data can be synced with the Windows Phone version over WiFi. This also makes it possible to sync with other mobile clients (Android, Blackberry, iOS, Symbian, Web OS), although you do need to go via the desktop.
Splash ID has more than one million users on other platforms, so its great to see it arrive on Windows Phone, especially as a password collections is exactly the sort of data that should be easily portable between platforms. The maturity of the application is also reflected in the solidity of the user experience, which has been honed over many years. But it's also good to see that Splash Data has followed the Metro design language guidelines (chromeless UI, use of text) so that SplashID will be immediately intuitive to any Windows Phone user.
