Yesterday, I posted about the shiny new iPhone App version of FileMaker's personal database application Bento, speculating as to whether this meant an iPhone version of Bento's big brother FileMaker Pro was on the horizon. A new edition of the FileMaker e-mail newsletter landed in my inbox this morning, and makes me think we won't see a native iPhone app from the developers at FileMaker anytime soon.
FileMaker, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Apple, has today released their first foray into the world of the iPhone and iPod touch. Bento, their personal database application, is now available in the iTunes App Store for a mere $4.99. Though the app can synchronize with the $49.99 Bento desktop client, at just $4.99 it is remarkably capable as a standalone database application with 25 ready-to-use databases.
