Bento announces “Student Survival Kit”

Today, the good folks over at FileMaker have announced that they are releasing five free student-centric templates for Bento. When a student downloads the 30-day free trial, they will receive these new templates called the “Student Survival Kit.”

Here are the new templates:

• Lecture Notes: Enter searchable notes and even include video, audio and file attachments for each lecture.
• Group Projects: Manage tasks and deadlines for multiple group members to keep everyone on schedule.
• Event Planner: Organize parties, class meetings, club fundraisers, and sports events, with ease.
• Course Tracker: Track classes, credits earned, grades, pre-requisites and more.
• Job Search: Track resumes sent, upcoming interviews, hiring manager names and important emails for every potential job.

These templates will, of course, work with Bento for the iPhone and Bento for the iPad. Bento is also integrated with Apple apps like iPhoto, Address Book and iCal, so you can manipulate your data with minimal hassle.

So, what do you think about these new templates? Does this make you want to buy Bento? Will this make your college life easier? Comment on this post, or hit me up on Twitter.
