FileMaker introduce Bento App for iPhone and iPod touch
FileMaker, Inc. unveiled Bento for iPhone and iPod touch, the portable version of the popular personal database that's as easy to use as the iPhone or iPod touch. With Bento for iPhone and iPod touch, it's never been easier to organize all the details of a busy life – in one exciting new iPhone application.
The new iPhone App also includes a Blank template for creating an unlimited number of customized templates. More than a bare-bones database or super to-do list organizer or even a replacement for your built-in iPhone Contacts, Bento for iPhone and iPod touch links together your contacts and keeps track of anything from business-related sales to digital media and recipes. You can keep client information with you, organize an event or party, and make changes right on your iPhone or iPod touch that can also be synchronized* wirelessly with Bento 2.0v4 for Mac desktop software.
"With so many cool, ready-to-use templates, users are going to find Bento for iPhone and iPod touch irresistible," said Ryan Rosenberg, vice president, marketing and services. "Whether you are planning an alumni reunion, managing the membership list of a club, expense tracking, or logging exercise routines at the gym, Bento for iPhone and iPod touch can help you get it done while you're on the go, quickly and easily."
