FileMaker launches Bento for iPad

Personal database app also syncs with Mac

FileMaker today announced Bento for iPad, available now at the Apple App Store. Based on Bento for iPhone, the product is adapted for the iPad’s 9.7-inch screen. The app also supports the gesture navigation features of the iPad, and works in both portrait and landscape modes, automatically switching between the two as the user rotates the device.

Bento for iPad users can manage contacts, track projects and plan events on the iPad, which can also be synchronized with Bento 3 for Mac. The iPad app has new features that incorporate video, Web browsing, photos and e-mails with a quick tap of the screen and without having to exit the app.

The new app boasts 25 customizable templates to help organize event planning, time billing, recipes, classes and dieting, among others.

Bento for iPad sells for $4.99 from the Apple App Store.
