FileMaker Releases Bento 4 for iPad
With the debut of the original iPad back in March 2010, Apple
subsidiary FileMaker released an iPad version of Bento, the
company's personal database software. But while the app has
received a few updates since that time, major changes have
been relatively few and far between even with the release of
Bento 4 for Mac in March 2011.
That all changes today with the release of Bento 4 for iPad,
a significant upgrade for the personal database app. Macworld
has an overview of the new app:
Past versions of the Bento for iPad have limited
creation tools and have focused on acting as a
means to access and modify existing databases that
were initially created on the Mac. The new Bento 4
for iPad adds a complete set of tools to allow for
the creation of Bento databases on the iPad itself.
"You don�t need a Mac," Ryan Rosenberg, FileMaker's
vice president of marketing and services, told
Macworld. "You're actually building and constructing
your own apps on the iPad."
Bento 4 for iPad includes 25 customizable templates for various
database types, along with 40 new themes optimized for the
Retina display on the third-generation iPad. Other improvements
include a new Table view for database entries and a hideaway
library list for full-screen viewing of records.
Bento 4 for iPad is not an update to the previous Bento for
iPad app and must be purchased separately. Regularly priced at
US$9.99, Bento 4 for iPad is on sale for US$4.99 through
July 31. Bento for Mac is also on sale for US$29.99 through
the end of July, down from its regular price of US$49.99.
