FileMaker has released Bento, a $49 version of the FileMaker database for the Mac’s Leopard operating system. FileMaker is a really great database program, and this is an easy-to-use version for people who don’t have severe database demands (which is most of us).

Bento is good for the usual phone book applications, plus organizing events, tracking projects, recording inventory, making libraries, etc. In short, unless youBento are operating a large business, most database tasks are relatively simple and can be handled easily by a program like this. About 140,000 copies have been downloaded from since the program came out in mid-November. User ratings are very high.
