Bento in the news With the launch of Bento 3 we wanted to share some of the great local coverage Bento 3 and Bento for the iPhone and iPod Touch has received:

Mac The Blog Ex Macworld editor Matthew Powell gave Bento 3 a glowing write up on his new project MacTheBlog saying Bento 3 “offers some very nice eye candy in its new features, as well as some more fundamental usability enhancements users have been asking for. The killer feature for me, however, is barely mentioned in the literature.
