FM 11: Still no integration with Mac Applications?
From the new announcement for FM11, it seems that it still doesn't integrate with address book. Very disappointing.
Does FM11 integrate better with Bento? That is, could you use bento as an outside table similar to mysql/odbc and gain integration that way?
Bento: Links with Mac native applications such as Address Book, iCal, Mail, and iPhoto.
The difference may be the cross-platform factor. Bento is a Mac-only product. FileMaker is cross-platform. A very large percentage of FileMaker users are Windows people. Not sure it would make much sense to integrate Mac-only apps.
Although, you always have the AppleScript option.
