FileMaker, Inc. is discontinuing iBento, its consumer-oriented database app for Mac OS X and iOS. The company says it’s increasing its focus on the FileMaker Product Line software.
“Thanks to the ease of creating iPad and iPhone solutions, our customers’ use of FileMaker on iOS is growing rapidly,” FileMaker Inc. says in an online note (http://tinyurl.com/kewbohz). “Our increased focus will create an even better experience for these customers. As part of our sharpened focus, we will stop further development of the Bento consumer products.”
Bento for iPad, iPhone and Mac will continue to be available on the FileMaker Store, and the App Store and Mac App Store, through Sept. 30, 2013. FileMaker Inc. will provide technical support for Bento products through July 30.
