The new Bento for iPhone and iPod touch comes with about 30 pre-designed templates for on-the-go organization of car maintenance logs, expenses, recipes, and sundry other aspects of home and work life. Templates for personal use include contacts, to-dos, diet log, classes, recipes, vehicle maintenance, and membership lists, to name a few. The 'collections' in Bento can also be mapped to a group of contacts. Information in the desktop and iPhone/iPod editions of Bento can be synchronized both ways over a wireless connection, a function that comes in particularly handy if you don't want to punch in a lot of data on a mobile phone by hand. But Bento for iPhone and iPod touch can also be used on a standalone basis. FileMaker's new iPhone app also comes with a blank template for creating unlimited numbers of custom templates, said Ryan Rosenberg of FileMaker's.
