Bento for iPad is officially available. If you’ve managed your data with FileMaker’s Bento for Mac OS X, you’ll definitely want to grab the brand new $4.99 iPad version.

If you’re not quite ready to jump on the iPad bandwagon, you can also check out their iPhone version of Bento. You’ll get a scaled down version of the same wonderful interface.

I’ve been on the fence about trying out Bento for a while, and this might just be what pushes me over. They are clearly dedicated to pushing out cutting edge applications that satisfies the needs of many people. I like FileMaker’s moxy.

If you’d like some more information, here are some key points:

  • Syncs with Bento for OS X, but can be used solo
  • Includes brand new snazzy themes
  • Includes templates “ranging from event planning, time billing, recipes, classes, dieting and more…”
  • Supports fifteen types of fields “including text, numbers, choice, checkbox, media, time, date, durations, currency, rating, address, phone number, email, URL and IM Account.”
  • Only $4.99
