Keep track of your visits.
- Offers In-App Purchases
Keep track of countries and US states that you have visited, and if you wish, also when you visited. The app visualizes the visited countries both as a list, along with a ratio for each continent, and as a world map. The map can be shared on social networks, such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, using the standard iOS sharing functionality. You can compare your map with friends that also have the app, by sharing your map with them.
- If you miss the old look of the app, you can enable Classic Mode to get the old experience back. We hope you will like the new experience though, as we will continue to improve it.
There is a Premium Mode in the app that you can unlock, if you wish, by a single ONE-TIME In-App Purchase. It unlocks all features in the app.
Features unlocked with Premium Mode:
- In addition to states and regions in the US, with Premium, you can select regions in 25+ countries.
- Select cities and airports.
- More 3D globe filters.
- More visualizers, such as a chronologic map.
- Add local profiles, to allow for multiple maps and country selections.
- More detailed comparisons with more information.
- Share your timeline as a video.

- Feature (Premium mode): By popular demand, you can now search for an airport by its IATA code directly from the top level selection screen, instead of first selecting a country and then searching for the airport in that country's list of airports. Some might think this sounds like a no-brainer, but it was actually more like a two-, or maybe even three-, brainer, according to the developer who added the feature. He said it was "Something databases something something". Sounded complicated anyway.
- Fix (Premium mode): Several users pointed out that Northern Ireland isn't really located somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, unlike what the Map Pins visualization indicated. We figured they might be on to something, so we moved Northern Ireland so that it is now located in Northern Ireland.
Ratings and Reviews
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!
v3 is awesome!
It’s been a while since I travelled, so I was excited to open this up again to add India to the list—I was surprised and delighted to find a brand new v3 overhaul!
The new features are great—I’m a little obsessive about cataloging things, so the ability to now track cities/regions/airports and travel dates is music to my ears! And my favorite feature of all is the new timeline view, where you can animate your travels over the years 😍.
Very excited to see this app getting some love—there’s a lot of potential here for some more awesome features. I think the things I’d like to see most are:
- timeline view of regions/cities—maybe could recreate the airplane animatics of Indiana Jones??!
- better visibility of US state map. It’s a bit hidden deep in the interface.
- animated timeline view of US states, or ability to view them on the main timeline view
- some UX improvements—mainly noticing it would be useful to edit visits wherever you see them (like press and hold or something). I had to keep hopping around to different views to edit things which got a bit laborsome.
Overall though, this update was an early Christmas present and I’m excited to support future development!
Used to be great…
I’ve used Been for years and have always loved it. Whenever I went to a new place I checked it off in my app as quick as I could. Being able to share maps and compare with my friends was one of my favorite things to do.
This new update completely borked the functionality I loved. Viewing US States (the country I live in) now requires counting US territories (even down to districts on the same land dependent country). I went from something like 90% completion of US states to 54% because the number of regions went from 50 to 74.
Furthermore, even viewing the US requires going through numerous sub-menus which are fairly hidden and not super logical. And when you’ve viewed a page that’s five menus deep, you can’t click the category icon on the bottom of the page to go back to the first page in that category-you have to click the “back” button at the top of the page. I now have to look all over the screen and move my hands to nearly every area there is just to navigate an app that used to be to easy to use.
While the visuals are greatly improved, this severe decline in functionality is forcing me to find an alternative.
