Please forgive me if I am missing something obvious - but I am wondering when we will get the applications for smart phones to be used as authenticators?

Thank you!

I'm sure it's on the way.

I don't know, but I sure hope they work better than the key fob you have to pay for; every couple weeks the algorythym whacks out completely and what #s it shows, however painstakingly you enter them with your password, refuse to work.  And it's murder even getting the danged thing back off your account after that happens!

I had it attached to my two station accounts, my daughter's account and my sons, and it would always malfunction for all of us when this happened.

I got rid of it and haven't looked back.

From TSR-MattG about a month ago:

"I know it's still under development/coming "soon" but CS has not been given any additional information past that at this time."

I'd love to hear an update myself. The 8 or so month old FAQ says that 'The mobile SOE Authenticator will be available in the near future' ...SOE being a bit slow on delivery isn't surprising.

Were you serious about improving security or not SOE? When can we expect this to be released? There's not a chance I'll ever pay for one of your stupid keychains.
