    So I have bought Bento almost half a year ago so I could keep track of my home inventory as well as other details. However, I have been out of the OS X news loop for so long that I JUST learned Bento would no longer be sold and supported.

    Should I still keep using it? Bento does fulfill my needs pretty well at this state. Or should I look for alternatives and chuck Bento ASAP?

    I chucked it out. I've been recommended Tap Forms as an alternative. I haven't tested it yet, though.

    Keeping using Bento for now as you should be able to migrate the data to whatever alternative you choose.

    Filemaker is probably overkill, but I think they have (or had) a special upgrade price from Bento to Filemaker.

    What I suggest you do is try alternatives until you find one you like and the migrate the data and t hen don't get rid of Bento until you're sure the new application is working correctly and all your data was migrate properly.
