FileMaker has unveiled Bento for the iPhone and iPod touch, describing it as "the portable version of the popular personal database that's as easy to use as the iPhone or iPod touch".

With 25 templates, aimed at both business and personal use, the new iPhone App also includes a blank template for creating an unlimited number of customised templates.

Bento for iPhone and iPod touch can be used as a standalone application or it can be synchronised with Bento 2.0, (version 4) for Mac.

The 2.0v4 update (available now for free download) means desktops and mobile devices will be up to date whether information is edited on the Mac or the mobile device.

The new app is available for download for £2.99 from the Apple App Store.
