Over 500,000 free templates have been downloaded from the Bento Template Exchange since its launch in June 2009, according to File Maker.
Bento by File Maker is a highly popular personal database software for Mac, iPhone and iPad users. Bento templates show users how Bento can organise virtually any information in business, education and home settings.
The Template Exchange enables visitors to try Bento for free as well as to browse, install and use a wide variety of real-world templates contributed by Bento users.
The Bento Template Exchange features more than 700 templates that illustrate the virtually unlimited uses for Bento.
Templates are available for Sales Funnel Management, Simple Home Inventory, Teacher Lesson Plans and Psychotherapy Session Notes among others. Some of the more popular templates include Contact & Customer Manager as well as Project Manager.
Steve McManus, Regional Manager, Asia Pacific says that the template exchange provides 700 ways to accomplish any kind of task. A half-million downloads from the Bento Template Exchange is proof of its efficacy.
Downloading and using templates involves a simple process. The Exchange provides easy instructions on how to download and import templates along with easy steps for sharing Bento templates.
Bento templates may also be used with Bento for iPhone and Bento for iPad (sold separately on the iTunes App store) if they are synched with Bento 3 on the Mac.
