Bento to be Discontinued September 30 »

Here’s the corporate memo:

FileMaker, Inc. is increasing its focus on FileMaker Product Line software. Thanks to the ease of creating iPad and iPhone solutions, our customers’ use of FileMaker on iOS is growing rapidly. Our increased focus will create an even better experience for these customers. As part of our sharpened focus, we will stop further development of the Bento consumer products. Bento for iPad, iPhone and Mac will continue to be available on the FileMaker Store, and the App Store and Mac App Store, through September 30, 2013. We will provide technical support for Bento products through July 30, 2014. We thank you for your support of Bento. We know that many Bento customers will be disappointed.

If a Bento falls over in the forest, and no one is around, does it make a sound?
