I know. I am late in getting the news. I bought Bento not too long ago and just got around to watching a couple hours worth of video tutorials for it last night in preparation for using it. Then I went to visit the web site just for the heck of it and found out the sorry news. Of course, Filemaker is happy to offer Filemaker Pro as a replacement which is very expensive overkill for my needs. I'm saddened they abandoned Bento with no plans for a replacement product to fill its place. It's also a shame Apple doesn't offer a database app to go along with Pages and Numbers. But no! Apparently Bento 4 does work fine with Mavericks. I am tempted to use it for as long as it still works which with a little luck might even be another OS X upgrade or two, who knows? Then again, maybe I should just abandon ship now. The thing is you can export your data to common formats so I should be safe there so long as I remember to do that before any upgrades to OS X that might break it. It bugs me to toss fifty bucks out the window and I liked how it looked in the videos I watched. It looked just right for my needs and simple to use as well. I liked features like collections and smart collections and a ratings field, etc. I am just using this to track some things at home including my crazy obsession with computer and video gaming. I have a large library of games for various platforms to keep track of. Anyway, sorry to ramble on but I poked around in the app store and didn't really see any alternative to Bento there with one exception and that was Tap Forms Organizer and Secure Database. This looks like it could fit the bill but I wonder if there are any other apps I should evaluate that compete with it? I wasn't thrilled to learn it has a known bug affecting the display of data which will be fixed whenever they get a version 2.0 out. I guess it is in beta now though. So what do you think? Go for it for Bento for as long as it lasts or abandon ship and get Tap forms or is there another great entry level database for OS X I am unaware of? Something around the price range of Bento up to say a hundred bucks would be worth it to me for this. Thanks for any replies.
