    "Designed to be a catch-all database, nice templates"

    December 14, 2011  |   By Durt_Bagg


    Inexpensive, easy to use database.


    Relies on iCal to show a month's of events? Why not build a calendar into Bento? I don't want to have to open multiple programs.


    I've tried Daylite, which is costly, cumbersome in some ways, and Filemaker which is great but again relies on 3rd party for a simple calendar. I've settled on SOHO Organizer 9. BYW I am in remote insurance sales (WebEx, Email etc) so everything I do is on the phone and computer with email, calendar, and a customer database. I also liked Fantastical for a calendar.
