Been is a brand new app available on the App store created by Martin Johannesson which allows you to keep track of places you have been around the world. Does this simple app deserve a place on your mobile device?

Been is a simple app that visualizes the countries you have visited 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 and by email using the standard iOS sharing functionality. Its a cool feature and each place you have ‘been’ glows orange rather then grey on the world map.Its definitely something we haven’t seen before, and it just makes you want to go out into the world and make that map glow fully orange.

This bring me onto the look of the app, which has been carefully crafted to match even the most popular social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter in a clever and coherent way by only using minimal colours and a sharp design. The entire feel of the app is an authentic one and is easy to come to terms with. It also functions great, and I did not encounter any problems scrolling through the different menus of this great app.

Pick it up whilst its fresh, and help set the trend and turn the world orange!
