Tuesday could very well be a special day for longtime users of FileMaker, as Apple's U.K. website has prematurely leaked the latest version of the popular database software, complete with new versions of its mobile apps.
We all constantly face organizational challenges: Do I have enough ingredients at home for this cake recipe? Which mechanic worked on my car last year? What’s the status of Project X? Bento is here to help with all those tiny details. You enter basic information, and the Bento database software manages the details. Bento excels at digitizing and corralling real-world concepts, but the best part is how it manages to make the somewhat-scary concept of a database downright user-friendly. It’s been Bento’s trademark since version one was released in 2008, and this fourth iteration continues FileMaker’s tradition of a database for the rest of us.
Veteran Mac database software FileMaker Pro 11 was released Tuesday, and among the new features are improved chart visuals, on the fly reporting, Quick Find and a host of new productivity tools to make database creation faster and easier.
