FileMaker Puts Bento On The iPad

PCWorld: FileMaker Puts Bento On The iPad

FileMaker’s Bento personal database application is now available on the iPad as well as iPhone and Mac and integrates with other business apps such as Address Book, Google Maps, Mail, and Safari.

”If FileMaker isn’t careful, people are going to start saying that Bento is the database software maker’s flagship app. After all, the company–which offers an entire line of professional database applications under the FileMaker brand– already produces versions of Bento for both the Mac and the iPhone. On Friday, the software maker unveiled an iPad version of its personal database application, with a number of features designed specifically to take advantage of Apple’s new tablet.

Like its iPhone counterpart, Bento for iPad is a $5 standalone app that also happens to sync with the Mac version of FileMaker’s consumer-oriented database offering. But the iPad version figures to do a few things that the iPhone edition can’t by taking advantage of the device’s larger screen.”
