I've just heard that Bento is about to fade away.
I've used this app for a few years and found it perfect for catalogueing things - mainly music - on my iMac and then syncing the data with my iPhone. Does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement?

All that is happening is that it is no longer being supported - you will still be able to use it. As for a replacement I am looking to get Filemaker (using the Bento discount) as I need more functionality than Bento is giving me just now.

That's true, but it's only a matter of time before it stops working. What discount is there on Filemaker?
My problem with FM is syncing with the iphone and ipad apps there doesn't seem to be a simple/cheap solution.

Filemaker is offering FileMaker Pro at a discount for Bento users at this link
Its much more powerful (though a bit more complicated) then bento. Its basically the only game in town at this point.
I've used a myriad of database products over the years and I have to say nothing compares to the ease of use and power of MS Access but alas its not available on OSX. That said you can set up some simple tables in FMP like you may have in bento, there's just a bit more of a learning curve

I've been very happy with TapForms, both on Mac and iOS. It has tons of pre-loaded form templates and it can automatically create a new database (form) from any CSV file you load.
