Time to move on...
(Sigh). I was so hoping that on Bento's next update release they would correct the one fatal flaw with this app. I love Bento. For beauty, function, ease of use, ability to customize, it deserves a 5. And I so wanted to give it that rating. But... the most important element in a database is the information stored in it. And the developers have totally ignored this point. This app is a dream to put information into it. But that's where it ends. There is no way to get the information out of it, share it with another Bento for iPads user, or even safeguard the information in it in terms of backing it up. iTunes syncing is totally useless in this regard in my mind. I want a copy of my important data in several places, copies that can be restored separately without having to restore my entire iPad if there were some disaster, copies that will allow me to provide a particular database or certain records in it to another user. Without this function, Bento is fatally flawed. I've given up waiting and am moving on to TapForms HD. My bet is a lot of others will (or already have) done the same.
Much needed update, good organization app

NOTE: If you really want to get use out of this, you need Bento for Mac; if you don't, the usefulness of this app goes down a lot.
That being said, this update finally brings multitasking support, which was the one major barrier for me being productive with Bento. With wireless syncing with my Mac install of Bento, I have a portable database of information with me at my disposal. I use this to organize everything: recipes, bibliographic references (I'm a grad student), passwords, and even as a way to do GTD task management.
When I sync with Bento on Mac, I can then take advantage of all the useful sorting and outputting methods to tie into my own ability to script and parse files. This is a bit of a power-user use case, but what's important is that Bento is friendly to enter data and still hooks into potential depth of use.
That being said, as another reviewer pointed out, if you want this to be more than just a distraction, you really need Bento for Mac, so it's more than just a 5 buck app. Otherwise you have no way of backing up data or even exporting it off the ipad. In that case, there are plenty of other more specialized and useful apps.
Cannot be updated for free.

Try as i might I cannot find how to update this from 1.0.3 for free. I received and email saying it was a free update. I have seen on the website this is a free update, but when I come to the App store there is no update. My ipad does not find any updates and tells me I am up to date.
And when I use the knowledge base for answers I get a canned "we cannot answer your question individually" email.
