I am still disappointed in Bento. I've been hoping they would get it right for a couple years now. Bento is very easy to set up and go, but that is due to its stultifying simplicity. Filemaker, Bento's big brother, is comprehensive but complex. Why can't Bento make up the middle ground??

Bento is easy to use, has a few good features, but many serious, frustrating limitations. As far as I can tell, this version just adds some social networking (web sharing) capability and integration with iPads, and that's about it. It is otherwise very close to Bento 3 (and see my 2-star review of that).

Bento has some good features:
- it integrates well with the MAC environment (address book, calendar, iPhoto)
- it is *fairly* easy to import data from spreadsheets (only. and still very basic and limited)
- it is quick for setting up simple database forms that look nice (but simple)
- it lets you move data to your iPhone/iPad with their app (although this has room for improvement)
- it has some mathematical field capabilities, but very rudimentary
- they offer access to a lot of free templates to get you started and to give you ideas

Obviously, Bento focuses on ease of use and integration, as well as simple, attractive appearance. But Bento still lacks flexibility, analytical features, and interoperability with other data applications and formats.

I have had nothing but trouble with this program since I was forced by Apple to upgrade to lion and switch from Mobileme to iCloud. I say "forced" because I was very happy and productive with Mobileme and, having been around computers for long enough, that I could smell a disaster in the making. I have now wasted hours on this program and see no end in sight,

Here is a quote from another user on the Bento Forum:

posted May 15, 2012 by Phil Russell
Jonathan and others:

Yesterday I had a long chat with a senior support person at FM about this issue. First of all, there is no clear message from FileMaker about this issue. A lot of hemming and hawing and prevarication, various suggestions, etc. The bottom line is, it doesn't work. I urged them to be clear with their users about this. The right thing for them to do would be to just come out and tell the truth. In the absence of them doing it, I'll write the support article for them:

"Dear Bento users, Bento will not integrate with your Mac Address Book if you sync your Address Book with iCloud. If you attempt to use it in this way, you will experience various problems. You Bento application will frequently freeze, requiring a Force Stop. Data will not synchronize properly between Bento and Address Book. There are so many problems with this, we don't even know all of them. We're very sorry for the problem. We released Bento 4 before iCloud was available. We never tested it with iCloud. We now know that it simply doesn't support iCloud-synchronized data. THEREFORE WE CAN CLEARLY STATE THAT YOU SHOULD NOT USE BENTO WITH ICLOUD-SYNCED DATA ON YOUR MAC. If you attempt to do so, we cannot be responsible for the results, and you will probably lose some or all of your valuable data.

Verified Purchase
Not sure what all the others are whining about...

The company I previously worked for used Filemaker Pro exclusively so I have about 10 years' experience with it. The may have deleted a few bells and whistles for us remote users, but it was pretty powerful.

We purchased the five license pack for our business and use DROPBOX to store the database so everyone can update it. The only drawback is that only one person can be updating at any given time.

After two weeks with Bento, I am kicking myself in the butt for not getting this a lot sooner. It was EXTREMELY easy to build a unique template that fit my needs for prospect management. Then I discovered it allows me to drag and drop emails (the links) into the form so I no longer need to search through my inbox or make folders specific to each project. That feature alone makes the program worth the cost.

THEN I found out you can drag and drop FILES (links) onto the contact card! No more searching the hard drive for quotes, etc. It's awesome! Everything in one spot!!!

I am unbelievably thrilled with this program. I'm using it on my MBA 11" running OS X 10.8. I haven't figured out yet how to do a few more things I want it to do, but even without that, it's the perfect solution for my needs.

**UPDATE - October 30, 2013**

Obviously I purchased this shortly before the Filemaker folks decided to do away with supporting this program. So that's a huge factor for anyone considering this product. And after six months of use, I'm finding enough limitations that I bit the bullet and purchased 4 Filemaker Pro licenses. The biggest problem for us was lack of error-free synchronizing between users. While the user interface was beautiful and easy to adjust, the sync problem really caused a lot of lost time and lost info. Am selling this if anyone's interested! :-)
