FileMaker Announces Bento App for iPad
FileMaker has announced that it now has a Bento app for the iPad, available immediately on the App Store for $4.99. The personal database application is based on Bento for the iPhone, with enhancements for the new tablet’s larger screen that will make managing contacts, tracking projects and planning events easier and more innovative than ever.
The new Bento app provides gesture support navigation for the iPad and works in both portrait and landscape views, automatically switching between the two as the user rotates the device. Users can simply touch the screen to edit information in choice, date and rating fields and checkboxes. A new quick tap lets users watch videos, view photos and send E-mails.
To simplify bringing together all your information, the new Bento for iPad supports 15 field types including text, numbers, choice, checkbox, media, time, date, durations, currency, rating, address, phone number, e-mail, URL and IM accounts. Customers can even browse Web links in Bento without leaving the app.
