Bento for Mac PowerPC

I believe most Mac users are very organized when it comes to their data, music, movies, office, set-up, etc, etc.  So to find an application that helps you to organize your database is very important.  For example, iTunes is great piece of work that puts all your music on track.  Anyways, this post is not about music, it’s about Bento for Mac.  This software is unbelievably easy to use as it organizes all of your important information in one place.  You can manage and sync your contacts, address book, iCal, iPhoto, To Do Items into your project as easy as drag and drop.  The latest version 4 is for Intel only, but after doing some research and installing old versions I found out that 3.0.6 is fully compatible with PowerPC 10.5.  Bento is not free, so before you guys purchase please contact FileMaker and make sure they are still providing the right license for your version.
