Just went to review the forum at FileMaker the devs for Bento,
hmmmm, lots of complaints about synch issues and no cloud storage /synch, I would pay 10$ for a dropbox synch/ backup, and yet they haven't considered it, ugh i am really getting tired of poor app development..... And the beta testers are people like us who invest in their software, waiting in anticipation for an update to fix poor design and concept!

I just downloaded Bento.. I use it on my iPad2 but do not have a Mac computer. Soooo I was wondering can anyone tell me what app or how to get a calendar on that thing? I hate using a separate calendar but at this point I have no choice. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all, Patricia


Bento isn't really a calendar app. It won't replace most of the calendar functions you are likely to expect; like different month, week, day views; and alerts.

They do have a n Event template, so that you can create a list of upcoming events. This is primarily a planning tool. You could probably use it as a starting place for a more comprehensive tool if you were someone who needed to plan and organized events.

Tap the button under the list of databases (or apps as Bento is calling them). Choose the Events template.

More info on Bento " iCloud synch" future release , probably have to shell out another 5 bucks.

This is an excerpt from the Bento forum , as we are not allowed to insert external links to other forums, blah de blah , I have pasted it, ( hopefully I won't get banned for this) but I feel everyone should know the limitation of an app before purchase, that's what forums are for.

Calvin said after Hobbes poked his water balloon: "That's the trouble with (weapons) technology. It becomes obsolete so quickly."

It wasn't long ago when I considered Bento the best app on my Mac/iPad/iPhone. I happily synced my iPad/iPhone everyday and said "wow, I can synced through Wifi. Now my data are in all my devices! It's awesome."

But, now, when I do the syncing: "This is ridiculous! Why do I have to do it?"

iCloud is really making a difference. I've been checking out other apps that support iCloud. Bento needs to support iCloud now and not later. Customers don't wait.

Thank you for your post

I have forwardd your suggestion to our Development and Product Management departments so they can consider iCloud support and updating of data across all devices in a future release.
