FileMaker Bento now on Mac App Store

17 Mar 2011

FileMaker has released Bento 4 for Mac, now available on the Mac App Store, and Bento 1.1 for iPhone, and Bento 1.1 for iPad.


New features including the ability to print labels, export libraries with data, automatically add geographical locations to records and lock down forms. 


Filemaker says that Bento 4 is a "major next step” for its personal database family.


Steve McManus, Regional Manager for FileMaker Inc. Asia Pacific, said, "We’ve enhanced the entire product line: Bento for Mac, Bento for iPad, and Bento for iPhone to provide you with a major productivity boost at your desk and when you’re on the go.”


Bento 4 allows users to create custom labels or choose from more than 250 ready-to-use Avery and Dymo label formats for mailing labels, inventory tags, name badges, file folders and other uses.


Bento for iPhone and Bento for iPad have both received significant updates. 


"You can now record voice memos into media fields on your mobile devices and tie them to your records, perfect for capturing events, logging meetings for later review, and just capturing notes without typing,” says Filemaker. 


Bento 4 costs NZ$65 or NZ$129 for a pack of five licenses and is now available on the Mac App Store, FileMaker Store and Apple Retail Stores.
 
Bento 1.1 for iPhone and Bento 1.1 for iPad are priced at NZ$6.49 each. Current owners of Bento for iPhone or Bento for iPad are eligible for a free update via the App Store.
