For a university project I have developed a small web application which lets users store their user credentials for a list of web services such as Flickr, Facebook, Gmail, Hattrick and so on.
The goal is to provide a one-tap login procedure such that people won't need to enter their user details every time they use their iPhone for internet browsing. I know that this idea is not new (you might know 1Password), but it is web based and for the services already added, it works.
The login after the registration is being secured by a two-way authentification. Every user gets a unique user ID which is being passed over their unique login URL. Furthermore, every user specifies a custom four-digit PIN code during the registration process.
After providing the unique ID and the corresponding PIN code, one can see his/her bookmarks and log in on web sites by tapping only once on the corresponding login button.
I tell you this because I'd like to get some feedback on this web app. I know that it's not perfect and that there are not enough services to make it real interesting but that's exactly the reason why I post it here. I want to know how I can improve it. Also, do not hesitate to propose new services which could be integrated!
For those of you who are worried about security issues: Usernames and passwords are encrypted with AES inside the mySQL database. The keys for the AES encryption is being generated upon a hash which is built from the user PIN code. There is no way and no motivation for us to peek at your user info.
I'd be really glad if I would get some feedback on my app and I already thank you in advance for taking a look at

Auto login Hattrick
I just have read your post and it is really interesting. I'm working on a similar app and I would like to know how did you do to register by code in the hattrick web page.
Really thanks in advance.
I have try the web you referenced but it looks down.
