FileMaker ships Bento

FileMaker on Tuesday announced the immediate availability of Bento, its easy-to-use personal database application. Designed exclusively for Mac OS X Leopard, Bento leverages a single-window interface and FileMaker database technology to help users organize contacts, calendars, projects, events, and more. Users can easily create databases to manage information with dynamic 'smart' collections as well as expand around Apple's own Address Book and iCal storage engines. Bento is priced at $50, or $100 for a family pack of five licenses. The personal database requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later.

Bento allows users to manage virtually unlimited contact details; coordinate events, parties, and fund raisers; track projects, assignments, and deadlines; connect related information together for more details; prioritize tasks; and catalog inventory, donations, and items for sale.

The application also supports recording hours worked and payments due; assigning ratings to service providers and sellers; creating libraries for music, movies, and media; and storing files as well as photos related to projects and events.

    Why iPodNN?

    Re: why

    isn't it obvious? OK, let me try to explain it to you. This software works for OS X, and integrates into Apple's standard Contacts and calendar databases. In iTunes, you can sync your calendar and contacts to your iPod. Ergo, this is, if not anything else, a new killer iPod support app.

    To answer your question, which as a reminder was "isn't it obvious".

    No.
