    Am looking to get into freelance and looking to get a good database software just for this.

    MacFreelance obviously has the word "freelance" in it but have any of you used these for this purpose or any purpose at all and have good/bad points?

    I'm not sure what your exact needs are, but I believe Bento is more for keeping track of personal things (addresses, todos, etc) while Filemaker Pro gives you the ability to make a database of whatever you want. I've used Filemaker Pro to create several different applications/databases for work and it's been great. Also its cross platform (windows/mac) so it's wonderful for a work environment.

    But maybe Bento would be enough for you, what kind of a database do you want to set up?
