    I bought Bento a few months ago, and I'm still trying to figure out a use for it. I don't own the Mac client, so having it on my iPhone may be limiting. After reading some articles it seems like it's meant mostly to be used for lists. Just curious as to how many people have it and how you're using it.

    IMO, it's not nearly as effective without the Mac client, as you can't add related records from the iPhone app. That would put my favorite template, Restaurant Menu Ratings, kinda worthless.

    Of the others I've created, Sirius Channel Guide is the only one that I actually use on my iPhone.

    Must admit, I find Bento on the iPhone disappointing. It is lacking in views and is only of any use in lists. Try and do anything useful and it falls flat on it's face. Even with the desktop client it is only marginally better, in so far as you can get the data across. But want to do anything useful - forget it. I use HandBase instead.
