Keep track of countries and US states that you have visited. The app visualizes the visited countries both as a list, along with a ratio for each continent, and as a world map. The list is synced across devices using iCloud. The map can be shared on social networks, such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, using the standard iOS sharing functionality.

NOTE: For users who are having problems adding countries to the world map: Tap the + button in the upper left of the World tab.

Don't get me wrong, this app is great. I've been using it for quite a while now and it's a great way to keep track of your travels. It's also the best app out of the many options out there for checking countries/states off your list. Although, I think the app could be even better by adding the ability to check off territories, islands, Canadian provinces, Australian states, Hawaiian islands, etc. It’s too bad the developers haven’t been very active in updating things. Hopefully they make these improvements so we can start having even more fun with the app!

Has so much more potential

This is just a bare bones logging tool in the form of a map.
What it does:
You just enter the countries (or US States) you’ve been to.
You view the map showing where you’ve been

What it should do:
Allow you to pan and zoom around the globe to explore the world.
Keep notes on where you would like to go next.
Keep a top 3, 5, or 10 list of where you want to go next along with goal setting to help you make it happen.
Have links to Wikipedia for every country/city to make it quick and easier to explore.
Add a note about what you did in each country/state that you visited.
Give a weighting to the quality of the visit (I.e. vacationed = 10, three day business trip = 5, airport layover = 1)
Break up British Virgin Islands separate from UK

Probably a lot more you could do with this app. Heck, they should sell ads from airlines, cruise ships, travel agencies, etc for special deals that would help you get to more places!

Missing and miscategorized locations

I just downloaded the Been app and it is missing some territories and miscategorizes some others. For instance, the US and British Virgin Islands are not listed at all. Not categorizing the BVI as a separate entity from the UK seems wrong. You have not visited the UK if you’ve only visited the BVI, and going to London isn’t the same thing as visiting the BVI. Same with the USVI. Also, Puerto Rico is listed as a separate country from the US, which is obviously not the case. Puerto Rico has been a territory of the United States for 119 years. Washington DC is almost not listed anywhere.

IMO all US states and territories should be included in the listing as “states” for the “United States” view. For other countries, that country’s territories should be listed as separate countries in the “World” view.
