This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.

What's New in Version 2.2.2
- Fixed problem with in-app browser. It now uses https instead of http.
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.
Could be better
It's cute and I like having a way to look back at all the countries and states I've been to or show people. But I don't like that it doesn't show the states in the 'world view'. Also I wish it had at least major cites so you could actually track where you have been in each country. I don't need it to do much more than that (which is why I picked this app) but not having those options is a real bummer and I'm looking for one that does now...
love tracking my states but it needs to be more interactive for example you rarely go on the app unless you're in a new state. The app needs to have things like a top 10 list of states you want to travel to or a list of things you want to do and what states they are in for example make a list of things to see and where they are and then you can set new travel goals and get reminders about traveling to those places please read my review so consider these changes to enhance the app
