Organize various types of data to generate and edit databases. Manage personal or business contacts, addresses, projects, etc. Track the status of a data bundle, set a schedule for specific events or transactions, manage lists of custom items. Import and export iOS data.

Bento allows you to organize your contacts, events, tasks, and projects. An easy-to-use interface, great idea - all for a low price of 29 dollars. Take your life organized on the go with iDevice and MobileMe sync capabilities. The data is organized your way and no other way.

If you are overwhelmed with all of your business contacts, your projects are a mess, and your personal life would need some organization, then maybe it's time for a simple, yet powerful application that will ease your life. Bento will help you to reduce your stress by remembering things that you no longer have to.

Use the existing data in your calendar and address book to merge people and events together. In Bento you can attach events and tasks to a personal card, so you know when you are going to see that person the next time, and what needs to be done before and after a meeting with that person.

The program is great for professionals who have their own projects going on. Bento allows you to gather together projects data in one simple place. You can edit the data right from there, and the project organization will be done exactly as you want it as the program allows you to customize things around the way you want.

The data you edit can always be on the go with you on your iDevice with a purchase of an additional application for iPhone and or iPad. Those will cost you an additional 5 bucks, but if you are serious about using this program, then it will be a great investment.

Before you can download the trial version of the software, you will have to complete the registration, which only takes a couple of minutes, but it allows the developer to spam your mailbox with reminders of how you can purchase the full version of their software.

In short, if you need your life organized, then I suggest you try this program. Before you do, though, check out the videos on the developer's website as it will help you get started.
