Bento 1.1 released for iOS — popular personal database app from Filemaker

Today Filemaker released a new version of Bento for the Mac ($49.99) and for the iPhone and iPad ($4.99 each). The video gives you a good idea what this application can do for you, with information specific to the iPhone and iPad in the latter part. The app comes with 25 templates that allow you to organize almost any kind of information. New in this version for iOS is the ability to record voice memos into media fields and tie them to your records. You can also sync iCal tasks from the Mac, edit simple list data on your iPhone, and use related records to link libraries. 

The following video, from last year when the iPad was new, gives a good look at the app on the iPad.
